Premier League Season 2 Round 5 Full Ladder
Five weeks in and this is shaping up to be the tightest PL season ever with only 3 points separating the middle 4 teams.
Bears 7 vs Peeping Toms 13 Match Stats
These teams met with 5 league points each in the bag and the closeness on the ladder was matched by the closeness of the early exchanges. The doubles were split and so it went until it got to 5-all at the half way stage. At this point Toms put their foot down and peeled off 7 from 8 to take the points.
This is the result that the Toms have been building to but it really lays down an early season marker for them as finals contenders.
Over to the individual performances and for Bears Horse and Azza (2 140s) picked up 4 wins each with Pas hitting 4 140s. The visitors had a great team performance with Sam leading the way with 5 wins, a 140, 2 180s and a 171 with Ross (2 140s, a 17 darter) winning 4 times. Three wins each for Kingy (4 140s, a 180) and Chris (a 140 and a 174).
Dragoffs 8 vs Strays 12 Match Stats
This game saw the return of Dave and the end of Greg’s excellent early season cameo. Strays took the doubles and maintained this two game cushion all the way to 8-6 up and the last round of singles. With all results still possible the visitors made the decisive move and took 3 from 4 to move to 11 and secure the 2 league points.
Not much sign of rust from Dave who won 5 from 6, hit 4 140s and and 18 darter with five wins also from Frosty (3 140s). Ciaran (2 140s a 180) won 3 times and Banz hit a 128 peg on the bull.
For Dragoffs there were three wins each for Richard (4 140s, 18 darter) and Gabe (1 140) and two for Max (1 180). Impressive finishing also on display from Richard and Gabe who clinched a win each in style with a ton plus checkout, Richard with a beautiful 160 and Gabe with a very handy 106 with his opponent sat on a double.
Imports 11 vs Raptors 9 Match Stats
Imports welcomed Jamil back into the team and the new-look lineup got off to the perfect start by edging to victory against North’s nailbiter specialists Raptors.
This one was neck and neck to 5-all when Raptors pulled clear by taking 3 from 4. This lead was short lived as Imports hit straight back with a 3 from 4 round of their own to take it to 9-all with the reverse doubles to come. Imports took the first one and, with the second at 1-all in the final game it must have seemed as if a draw was inevitable. Shane and James were happy to tear up the script and grab two league points for Imports.
The numbers (“only” 4 140s, 2 180s and 108 peg) suggest Corey wasn’t at his sparkling best but he still went home with 5 wins including all 4 of his singles for the loss of just one leg, and there were three wins for Dinga and two from Wayne. Wins across the board for Imports with Shane (3 140s, a 116 peg and a 15 darter) leading the way with four and three from Nev (2 140s). Underlining that this was a real team effort is the fact that the remaining three players all picked up two wins each with James’ 3 140s just pushing him a head of Jamil and Daral.
Scorpions 13 vs Motley Mustangs 7 Match Stats
Scorpions too strong for Mustangs as a well-rounded team performance saw them get home 13 games to 7. This wasn’t a cruise to victory by any means though and with the game at 8-6 the door was slightly ajar. It was slammed shut when Scorps took 3 of the next 4 to get to the 11 games which secured the win.
Brian M on song with 5 wins plus the quadrella of 5 140s, a 180, a 115 peg and low games of 17 darts, and 18 twice. Four wins each for the rest of the team namely, Scotty (5 140s, 18 darter), BA (4 140s and a 106 peg) and Glen (4 140s).
Standing strong with three wins each were Mick (3 140s) and Willy (3 140s and low games of 18 & 16 darts) with maximums from Steve and Glen, who also hit a 17 darter.
