Weston lose top spot after defeat

Weston lost top spot of the Somerset Super Darts League after losing to Chard.

WESTON travelled to Chard in the Somerset Super Darts League looking to extend their lead at the top of the division.

They got off to a good start with Paul Tyler (20.50) and Gary Howell (21.97) both winning 3-1, but this was soon wiped out with losses on both boards. The visitors fought back with Clive Strong in fine form (26.01) and Bobby Moore opening his season (20.57) winning 3-2.

Weston let another game slip allowing Chard too take charge again, but Martin Vanedgemeister (21.88) pulled out a 3-0 victory. The visitors took the lead with a fine display of darts from George Turnbull clocking out a 135 check in a 3-1 win yielding him a respectable 26.57 average.

Anthony Edmundson finished off board one (21.54) with a 3-1 win, but Weston dropped the next two games on board two, letting Chard back into the game.

Weston went into the pairs 23-24 down, but never got going and went down in both opening sets on each board only picking up five legs to Chard’s 12.

The home side only needed one leg for a win and although Moore, Turnbull and Powell tried to stop them, Weston won both games 3-2 as Chard ran out 40-34 victors.
