Three 20-darters led the way for Henderson.

Eddie Ashman hit another two 180s to make it 30 for the season as he defeated Martin Price 5-1.

Price started the strongee as he took the opener in 18 darts, but it was all Ashman after that, as he powered to the next five legs in 19, 16, 20, 18 and 17 darts.

Eddie Guy showed finishing of the highest order as he took out finishes of 140, 116 and 106.

However, it still was not enough to take all three points as impressive Alan Smith hit a maximum and had winning legs of 20 and 21 (twice) darts in a thrilling 4-4 draw.

Ronnie Gill took a massive stride towards securing his finals night spot with an excellent 5-2 win over Graham Mullen

John Redpath was a comfortable 5-1 winner over Anthony Gale with two 20-dart winning legs and a 17-darter.

Anth Skelton was in superb form as he hit a magnificentseason’s best leg of 12 darts.

Skelton also hit two maximums in two 16-dart legs, but it was all in vain as Paul Williams took the three points with a 112 finish in the deciding leg after Skelton missed one dart at double 15 which would have seen him take a deserved point.

Kevin Guy remains second in the table after a whitewash win over Ray Malarkey.

Steve Skinner was a 5-1 winner over Barry Rutherford, while Neil Rose bloomed in his 5-2 win over John Squire.
