Premier League Round 16 Full Ladder
The finals spots are decided with a week to go with Minor Premiers and reigning champs We’re On taking on Dragoffs and second place Scorpions hosting Stray Darters.
We’re On 16 vs Raptors 4 Match Stats
The Raptors finals hopes were ended by a ruthless We’re On side who seem to be gearing up for the finals after a couple of weeks that were quiet by their standards.
The Raptors doubles pairing of Liam and Corey won both of their games with Corey picking up a singles win as well. Corey hit two 140s and a 180 with the skipper hitting a maximum as well. Matty picked up the other circle for the visitors.
As always it’s impossible not to mention each of the players from the table-topping We’re On side. Aaron (four 140s) and Justin (two 140s) both won all four of their singles and one game of doubles. Four time winners were Pas, who hit three 140s and had finishes of 132 & 125, and Horse who completed a rare double trifecta with four 140s, two 180s, two 15 darters and two ton-plus checkouts of 126 and 141. Exceptional stuff!
Dragoffs vs Aha Gotcha Match Stats
This forfeit win, plus Raptors defeat at the hands of We’re On, means Dragoffs secure fourth spot on the ladder with a week to play.
Red Scorpions 13 vs Imports 7 Match Stats
The doubles matches were the main difference in this one with the Reds taking them 4-0 with the singles being just 9-7 in their favour.
I think it’s worth mentioning all four Reds as this was a good solid team performance. Three wins and a 140 for Glen and four wins and a 140 for Michael kept the scoreboard ticking over and powering them over the line were five time winners Willy (3 140s) and Steve (3 140s and a 17 darter).
Standing tall for Imports with three wins each were Shane and Nev, who added one more to his 180 tally.
Peeping Toms 7 vs Scorpions 13 Match Stats
The Scorpions got off to a 6-0 lead but things could have been so different as the first four games of singles all went to a deciding leg. Had the Toms been able to convert some or all of these chances then an upset might have been on the cards. The fact that the Toms are making these chances and pushing the top teams hard shows how much this team has improved over the course of 2017.
Brian AKA The Machine was purring along with 5 wins, 3 140s, a 180 and low games of 17 & 18 darts with strong support from Glen who won 4 times and had a 17 darter, with Pat firing in a 102 peg.
A bye for the Strays.
A GRADE Round 16 Full Ladder
A grade finals will start next week with Scorpions B taking on Pinoy Darters and Javelins hosting Nek Minit,
Javelins 15 Vs Wildcats 6 Match Stats
The Cats were right in this at 5-4 down after the doubles and first round of singles but the Javs hit top gear and took the last two rounds 5-1 to register the win. The two points guaranteed them second place on the ladder and a tie against third place Nek Minit in the finals.
Two wins each for Vikki (a ton and a 140) and Kelly (1 ton) with singles wins also for Shaz (6 tons including a 110 checkout) and Gila (1 ton). Nikki obviously had her scoring boots on with 7 tons including a 140. Peter (6 tons and a 140) and Max (3 tons) both won four times with Gavin (2 tons) and Hugh (1 ton) both winning three.
Devils 0 Vs Pinoy Darters 11 Match Stats
A forfeit win for Pinoy Darters who will take on the B’s in the first week of the finals.
Gremlins 14 vs Nek Minit 7 Match Stats
Nek Minit took an early lead but that was as good as it got for them as Gremlins won 13 of the 18 singles games. This would be a bitter-sweet victory for the home team as despite the loss NM progress to the finals while they miss out by a couple of wins.
Blain in excellent form with three wins and 5 tons and two wins each for Shaun (4 tons) and Ngawai (1 ton) while Mark hit a 180.
Massive unbeaten performances from Richard, who hit 8 tons, 2 140s and a 180 , and Matt with 8 tons, a 140 and a 180.
Nemesis 6 Vs Scorpions 15 Match Stats
The Bs end season 2 as Minor Premiers with a 15-1 record after a thumping win over Nemesis at The Brook.
All five of the Nemesis wins game in the singles with Mark (3 tons, 2 140s) and Ben (2 tons, 2 140s) picking up two and one each for Daral (a ton, a 140 and a 180) and Banga (3 tons).
Undefeated were both Hilly (4 wins, 5 tons, 3 140s) and Grant (3 wins and 7 straight tons). The B’s scored heavily all night with 50 ton plus scores for the night. Wayne must be wondering how he only hit one 140 as he racked up scores of 2 x 123, 2 x 125 and 1 x 135!
A bye for Dragons
