Raddys stay top
DARTS - CURRENT Somerset Darts Super League leaders Weston Raddys travelled to Wells in what is traditionally a hard fought close contest.
CURRENT Somerset Darts Super League leaders Weston Raddys travelled to Wells in what is traditionally a hard fought close contest.
However, such is the confidence running through the team that they left Wells as comfortable victors.
Raddys started well with Paul Reid and Dave Sheppard winning their matches to give them an early lead. Wells then pulled one back, but Carl Evans produced a super show winning 3-1 with a 23.97 average, not bad for someone who has been out all season through injuries.
Daz Paul again served up his usual winning 3-1 checking out on a 76 and averaging 23.34. Another stalwart in Paul Smith was ruthless in his 3-0 conquest before Wells notched their second win to make the score 5-2.

Raddys then pulled away, Steve Thirkettle leading the charge 3-1 with a 22.42, followed by a stunning fight back by Mike Cannon 2-0 down and looking beaten. Mike dug deep and showed tremendous determination in turning it around to win 3-2, throwing a 180 for good measure.
But even this was surpassed by Adam McNally who is starting to deliver after showing such great promise. Adam hit 10 tons, a 180 and averaged an excellent 25.52. Difficult as this was to follow, Graham Kurle did his best hitting a 15 darter, two checkouts of 111 and 116 and averaging 24.00 in his win.

Wells took the final rubber making it 9-3 to the Weston team with the pairs remaining. Raddys then went on to triumph in four out of the six pairs to leave the final score of 26-10. Successful pairs were C Thomas and A McNally 3-1, P Smith and D Sheppard 3-2, J Burton and G Kurle 3-2, and captain M Harding and M Cannon 3-0.
Captain Harding was elated with the performance and said: "There does not seem a bridge that this team cannot pass, eight of my team averaged well over 20-plus averages, terrific."
Man of the match was Adam McNally for his superb showing.
