8:00am Wednesday 16th October 2013 in Sport
RYEDALE’S leading players helped The Star to a terrific 5-3 victory at Honley in week two of the Yorkshire Super League Premiership season.
Malton’s Toddy Oldfield was beaten 4-1 by impressive Yorkshire county star Jason Elvin in the opening match, but fellow Malton player Simmy Cass recorded his first Super League win with a dominant 4-0 victory over Baz Holland to level the scores.
After an impressive performance in the BDO British Open, where he reached the last 16, Jim Gordon continued his form with a man-ofthe- match-winning 4-1 victory over fellow county star Peter Jacques.
Gordon registered three 180s and a fine 96.68 three-dart average.
The match was sealed in style as Gordon hit a sublime 13-dart leg.
Malton’s John Spoors put Caytonbased Star 3-1 up with a solid 4-2 win over Yorkshire county legend Wayne Holland in the fourth match.
Spoors scored heavily and was deadly on the doubles as he registered a memorable victory.
Another remarkable performance from Scarborough’s finest was to follow as Graham Elvidge produced yet another high quality showing in defeating Brian Hallas senior.
Elvidge was always in control as he opened with a 14-darter that included a 180 and sealed the match with a 146 – treble 20, treble 18, double 16 – outshot for a 15-darter.
Despite registering a 180, Rillington’s Cameron Spiller was beaten 4-1 by Yorkshire county player Brian Hallas junior. Spiller struggled as Hallas produced a solid performance.
Rillington’s Paul Bulmer registered the match-winning point in match seven. More huge scoring resulted in a 4-2 win over Nick Nunns.
A 123 – treble 19, 16, bull – outshot in the first leg set the tone as he powered to victory, sealing the match with a tidy two-dart 96 checkout in the last.
Pickering’s Phil Bointon was beaten 4-3 by Trevor Manning.
Doubles were missed by both players but Manning pinched it with a tidy 14-darter in the deciding leg.
