London Super League: Chadwell Heath 3 Wood Green 4

Chadwell Heath were narrowly defeated 4-3 by Wood Green in their latest London Super League match.

Matt Crowley (25.46) got Heath off to the best possible start, consistently hitting the tons, along with a maximum to take the opening point as he hit the match winning double in the fifth leg.

The visitors quickly doubled the advantage as Danny Faulkner (26.43) cracked in 13 tons with two maximums for good measure and the sixth leg saw him cross the finishing line.

Liam Hill (28.65) kept up the brilliant start for Heath, taking the match award as he only dropped a leg to leave the hosts reeling and one more loss away from a surprise home defeat.

Wood Green opened their account in the fourth contest with Heath’s Steve Harold (21.17) involved in an even tussle, before going down in the sixth leg despite cracking in a 109 finish during the course of proceedings.

Shaun Lovett (21.80) has struggled in recent weeks to reproduce his sparkling early season form and on this occasion, he was always behind and couldn’t register a leg on the scoreboard as the lead was reduced to a solitary point.

The penultimate game saw John Loeber (22.44) chasing the game, and he too was on the wrong end of the scoreline, only managing to win one leg, which brought the overall contest all square going into the final match.

Lance Adams (25.31) gave as good as he got, but the sixth leg proved decisive as his opponent hit the match winning darts.

At the midway point of the season, Heath lie in eighth place, with Welling A holding a two-point lead at the head of affairs after their 5-2 win at Romford in the battle of the top two.

Heath’s final game before the Christmas break see them once again on their travels as the reverse fixtures start.

They take on Woolwich, who will be looking to avoid the 6-1 thumping that Heath handed out in the opening fixture.

And after suffering the disappointment of blowing a sizable advantage in their defeat to Woodford Green, Heath will hope they can hit back
