A GRADE – Full Ladder
Motley Crew 15 v Javelins 6 – Match Stats
Motley Crew powered to victory with a solid all round team performance. John won all his singles as did Aaron and it’s been quite a while since he has a lost one too. For the Javelins Keith Dodds led from the front with 7 tons and 2 wins.
Two Darts 18 v Ex Pats 3 – Match Stats
A full Two Darts line-up showed what they are capable as they ripped through the in-form Ex Pats. Hard to highlight anyone as a stand out performer but a nice 143 peg from Blags. For the Ex Pats Ian missed a few 180 chances as he smashed 9 tons.
Dragons 12 v Imports 9 – Match Stats
The Dragons confirmed their finals spot while making it mathematically very difficult for the Imports to feature in the top 4. Ben continued his stellar form with 4 wins and Ciaran got his mojo back with 9 tons and a 112 peg. The Imports welcomed back John Rankine after a few weeks away for work and certainly no cobwebs there as John hit 10 tons, a 16 darts game and 4 wins to back it up.
Vipers 11 v Panthers 10 – Match Stats
After going behind 2-1 the Vipers fought back to 5-4 and maintained that 1 point margin at the end with Pas sealing victory with his 4th win of the night. For the Panthers, Max won all his games but Tamm saved the best to last. Getting frustrated on the 20’s she went downstairs and we are very happy she did with a 95-93-95-133-95 peg to finish in 15 darts, definitely the highlight of the night (well almost).
B GRADE – Full Ladder
Slashers2 9 v Bulls 6 – Match Stats
Just what the doctor ordered for Slashers2 as they close to within one win of the top 4. Rob led from the front with 5 tons and was undefeated for the night as was Michael. For the Bulls Craig once again won his 2 singles matches without dropping a leg and Denise and Scotty also won both of their singles.
Arrows 8 v Tri-Hards 7 – Match Stats
The local derby is always entertaining and this was no let down. Edgar celebrated his birthday early with his 4th maximum of the year to set-up a 3-0 lead to the Arrows. The Tri-hards fought back but with the game in the balance the ever reliable Dom hit the winning double to seal victory for the Arrows and likely cemented 2nd spot on the ladder. That man Edgar won all his matches while for the Tri-Hards Marty didn’t drop a leg in his singles and his 7 tons took him over the 100 mark for the season as he looms menacingly behind Steve Bryant.
Jockys 11 v Devils 4 – Match Stats
The Devils position mid-table with a 14-13 for and against record coming into this match is somewhat misleading, considering some of the talent in the team. And so it was that when they led the Jockys 2 zip after the first two doubles games. That then became 3-1 early in the singles and there was whiff in the air that there was an upset on the cards (or maybe that was just Brewster). However, the Jockys then showed why they are top of the table overpowering the Devils to win 11-4 in a dominant display. Josh Allen had a three circle night in a welcome return to form. Strong displays also from Ian Newton, Ben Hughes, Derek Smart and Marshall Thompson. For the Devils, Justin King had a strong game with 5 tons and two wins.
Slashers1 14 v Wanderers 1 – Match Stats
Some nights everything goes right for you and it was one of those nights for the Slashers1 who recorded their biggest win of the season to keep their finals hopes alive. Corey pegged 100 and Shaun hit a 180 and ironically was the only person to drop a game but I am sure he didn’t care too much. For the Wanderers there wasn’t their standard late comeback but I’m certain they will bounce back this week.
