The Wizard's magic spell
By Editorial Staff 04/06/2021
After starting the day with a scrappy defeat to Mike Gillet (3-4) Osborne unleashed a ferocious burst of scoring power and tidy finishing against his second unsuspecting opponent Richard North. In the five legs, Osborne hit 4 180s, 4 140s, and 4 100s as well as checking out 4 times from only six opportunities together with an overall average of 107.60.
The day's outstanding performance led to a run of four wins in a row for the Derby-based thrower who topped the day's group on eight points with a remarkable leg difference of +12.
Elsewhere in the group Mike Gillet and Stephen Burton lead the way after the opening action of Group C in the MODUS Online Live League.
Osborne and Gillet picked up four wins from Thursday's efforts with the former leading on leg difference (+12) as we head for Friday's deciding round of games. Josh McCarthy, Richard North, and Fallon Sherrock make up the current table.
Despite little reward, Fallon Sherrock showed signs of some returning form and may expect better things on Friday.
