WESTON Raddy's went on their travels to neighbours Berrow, looking to sustain their pursuit of winning the Somerset Darts Super League.

Raddys were desperate to record a clear victory, but did not get the start they had hoped for as both opening rubbers went to Berrow. However, this scare was short-lived as Bob Hadley led the charge, notching 105 and 74 checkouts to get Raddy's on the board.

Steve Thirkettle levelled the match, winning 3-0, and hitting a 180 on his way to a healthy 24.24 average. Graham Kurle again showed his class with a no-nonsense 3-0, scoring eight tons with a superb 26.37 average. Chris Thomas won a close encounter 3-2 maintaining a 23.75 average, before Paul Smith made it 5-2 with a 16-dart leg and a 180. Carl Evans proved he is coming back to his best, also hitting a 16-dart leg, and an 80 checkout averaging 23.25. Daz Paul was ruthless in his 3-0 win, before Adam McNally increased Raddy's lead to 8-2.

Berrow then pulled a leg back but John Anderson hit another 1- dart leg and a 180 to give Raddy's a comfortable 9-3 cushion before the pairs. Captain Harding made it clear to his team not to relax and they did not.
