A cracking game saw the Red Lion host Highwayman in the William Hill Darts League Division One.
The two sides were locked together at 3-3 after the singles, before the home side won two of the doubles to rack up a 7-5 victory.
Chris Simpson (100, 122, 135, 140) threw well and Dave Middleton and Scott Smith had a fantastic 16-dart doubles leg.
The Highwayman had D. Brevin (8x100 and a 19-dart leg) in form.

The Aces had Spencer Davis (2x100, 121,126 finish) throwing well despite his side’s defeat.
Ex Service 501s and Liberal club shared the points with a 6-6 draw and a very high-scoring game between Ex Service Cobras and Rise of ASMs saw ASMs win 11-1.
ASMs’ Shaun Drury (4x100, 101, 137, 140 and legs in 18 and 21 darts), Mark Forman (2x100, 125, 133, 135, 140, 121 finish and a 16-dart leg, and 15 dart pairs leg with partner Rick Garner), Garner (4x100, 135, 137, 2x140 and a 21-dart singles leg) all threw well but were trumped by Martin Bell (3x100, 108, 137, 2x140 and a fantastic 13-dart leg).
Cobras had Ian Chamberlain (20 and 21 dart legs), Phil Pulham (104 finish) and Darrell Webb (19 darter) throwing well.
Seaview Next Tuesday’s are virtually home and dry in this division, with the ASMs looking good for runners-up.
