A GRADE – RESULTS & LADDER:
So sincere apologies for the lack of a round-up last week, the last couple of results came in a bit late for me to do much else …. BUT
Special congratulations to the Two Darts who took out the President’s Shield with 18-3 win over the previously undefeated Scorpions. Able to field 6 players for the first time in two months the Two Darts were a team possessed and whilst most legs were close the Two Dart crew were giving no quarter and were hitting every double.
With a bye to the Scorpions this week the Two Darts had the opportunity to overtake them with a victory against the Ex Pats. Probably not the best time for the Ex Pats to be without their captain Mick Ward and superstar T-Dog (Tristan). Again the Two Darts turned up with one objective in mind and sliced through their opponents 17 games to 4. Ian Pearson putting up the best resistance with 2 singles wins for the Ex Pats. That puts the Two Darts on top, at least for one week as they have the bye this week.
At the other end of the table the Vipers had their 3rd 11-10 score line in a row and secured a come from behind victory over the Panthers after Jack pegged double 8 in the final leg against Shane. Paz smashed out 13 tons and won every game while Bilbo hit a 180 for the Vipers. For the Panthers Gabe was in sparkling form hitting two 180’s and narrowly missing a 3rd to win all his matches.
The Dragons held out a spirited 5-player Imports line-up 12-9. Arthur Owen the star for the Dragons with 9 tons including a 180. Nev Senior won all his matches while John Rankine smashed out 17 tons including two 180’s. Would be remiss of me not to mention Jamie’s 140 peg also.
The Motley Crew held out the Javelins, also 12-9 with Shayne, Aaron and John going the night undefeated with Mr Ives hitting a 180. For the Javelins after losing his doubles Bryan then went on a rampage winning all 3 singles without dropping a leg and in some cases not even offering a sniff off a double.
