IN their latest Devon Super league Darts match the Holly Tree were 5-4 winners at Exeter City's headquarters, St James' Park, with a win over Grecian 2000.

The match started badly for the Withycombe Village based side as Mike Evens slipped up 3-1 and then Ian Baker went down 3-0, but skipper Dean Wiltshire maintained his wonderful season-long form with a comprehensive 3-0 victory to bring his side back into contention. Paul Milford then claimed a 3-1 win to level the match score up at 2-2 and Jeff West came out on top with a keenly contested 3-2 win to give Holly Tree the lead for the first time in the contest.

Paul Wolfenden then turned the style on with a superb average of 27.86 as he claimed a 3-1 win but, with just one more win needed to secure the overall victory, Paul Davis went down 3-0.

This brought Colin Wonnacott to the oche and he secured the match winning game with a 3-1 success.

Last, but most certainly not least, on the night was the appearance for the first time in Holly Tree colours for Gary Babbs. He put up a great battle and was unlucky not to take something from his game, one he lost on the last leg of the contest, 3-2.

The next game for Holly Tree is the January 3 meeting at home to Tiverton with an 8pm start time.

There is an open darts competition this coming Sunday, December 28 with a 12noon - 12.30 registration at the Nags Head in Lyme Regis.

The pair's competition also has a winner's prize of cash. Entry to the competition is £5 for both the singles and the doubles competition. For more information call the pub on 01297 442312.
