Weston leave it late
Weston left it late to beat Chew Valley in the Somerset Super Darts League.
WESTON travelled to Chew Valley looking for another win to continue their good form in the Somerset Super Darts League.
The visitors got off to a good start with George Turnbull (21.04) winning 3-2, as well as Ricky Harding on board two starting steadily until he found his line and hammered in a 13 dart and 16 dart leg to win 3-0 in an impressive display of darts finishing with a 29.90 average.
Chew Valley fought back taking the next three games to put them in the lead, but the charge was halted by Bobby Moore (22.14) winning 3-2 and Ian Cope (23.43) winning 3-0. Mark Stainer (22.10) won 3-1 and Tim Strutt (21.04) continued his unbeaten run with a 3-0 victory.
Weston went into the pairs with a slender two leg lead (23-25), but the rub of the green went Chew’s way winning the first three, although Weston did pick up legs, they now trailed by three.
