Premier League Round 16 Full Ladder

The last week of the Premier League regular season started with the top 4 teams known and their positions already decided.  Congratulations to Dragoffs, We’re On, Scorpions and Imports who were well deserving of their spots in the finals.

7th June – Chermside Bowls – Qualifying Final (winner through to Grand Final 28th June, loser into the Preliminary Final 14th June): Dragoffs v We’re On

7th June – Chermside Bowls – Elimination Final (winner through to Preliminary Final 14th June): Scorpions v Imports

Scorpions 15 Vs Imports 5 Match Stats

The Imports were on the receiving end of the most impressive performance at BNSDC.  In this match there were four 180s, 5 high pegs and a staggering 11 low games.  For Imports JR won 3 times and hit an 18 darter but it was really about the Scorpions where all 4 players had big nights…

Bob had 6 wins, hit two 180s and had two 16 darters; Glen won 3 times and hit 15 and 17 darters; Brian won 4, hit a 114 peg and hit 16 and 18 darters but it was Pat who could do almost no wrong. He won 5 times on the night including 4 out of 4 singles without dropping a leg.  He hit 6 140s and a 180 but it was the low games and high finishes that single this out as one of the best individual performances that we’ve seen in the league.  Finishes of 113, 115, 120 and 141 with games of 18 darts, 17, 15 and a season equaling low of 12 darts which went 180, 140, 40 and 141.

We’re On 19 Vs Aha Gotcha 1 Match Stats

We’re On had a confidence boosting big win against Aha Gotcha.

Jade grabbed the lone win of the night for AG and also hit four 140’s.

Undefeated for WO were Horse, Aaron and Paz, who had a 109 peg, while Justin hit a 180 and had a 15 darter.

Raptors 8 Vs Dragoffs 12 Match Stats

The Dragoffs finished the regular season with a record of 15 wins from 15 although they had a couple of scares along the way.  This game itself was finely balanced at 7-all and in fact a draw was still possible with the final games of doubles to play but the minor premiers held firm and took the match 12 games to 8.

Despite the defeat Raptors finished the season in 6th place on the ladder, tied with Red Scorpions on points but with a superior leg difference.  Highlights for the home team were Kate’s 142 checkout and Corey’s two maximum.  They were both three time winners on the night, as was Liam.

For Dragoffs Choppa showed some of what he can do with 6 wins, a 180, two 17 darters and two 16’s with Rod winning 4 times and hitting a 118 peg.

Stray Darters 13 Vs Red Scorpions 7 Match Stats

These two teams were playing for pride at Chermside after missing out on a spot in the top 4. When the Reds edged to a 7-6 lead it looked as if a bit of an upset was on the cards but the Strays took the last 7 games to win 13-7 and secure 5th in the table outright.

For the visitors it was three wins each for Stephen and Willy, who hit five 140s and a 180.  It was a good all round performance from Strays with Kylie leading the way with 5 wins.  Dave (a 177) and Banz (114 peg) both had 4 wins with Edgar picking up 3 circles and a tidy 94 peg as well.  Dave and Kyle showed they were in sync when they both took out 10 by hitting single 5, treble 1, double 1 within 30 seconds of each other.


7th June – West Mitchelton RL – Preliminary Final

Scorpions “B” v Javelins (Winner plays Motley Crew in the Grand Final, 14th June at Wantima)

Motley Crew 11 Vs Scorpions “B” 10

The MC had their late season blip and powered back into title contention with a magnificent comeback. Down 6-3 the MC dug deep with 4 wins in the second rounds of singles to reduce the deficit to just 1 then hitting the lead early in the last round before Tim held his nerve to catapult the MC into the Grand Final at home. Another great performance from Ross who played the best of the opposition and triumphed.

Javelins 11 Vs Nemesis 9

It was a case of a bridge too far for Nemesis. Every time they got within a sniffter of the lead the game would shift again with the experienced heads prevailing and without Bryan, it was a champion effort to overturn their past two losses of 14-7. Some great darts from Hugh and Pete set up the win with Keith’s steady finishing and cunning captaincy sealing the deal.

B GRADE Round 16 Full Ladder

Due to points differences and byes the final B grade table was decided last week.  Saying that, Jockys and Arrows have been the best two teams in B Grade and they both showed it with their final hit outs of the regular season.

Preliminary Final between Arrows and Cannons is set to be played at Chermside Bowls June 7th with the winner of that match progressing to the Grand Final at West Mitchelton RL versus the Jockys on the 14th June.

Jockys were too strong for Cannons as the whole team contributed to their 13-2 victory over the team in third place.  Jason played the lone hand for the visitors by winning his two singles games and hitting 5 tons and a 140.  Jockys Gary (4 tons), Ian (3 tons), Ben and Derek won all their games.

Arrows 12 Vs Wanderers 3 Match Stats

Over at Chermside Arrows took on Wanderers and won comfortably despite the scoring power of Lance and Dave.  Those two Wanderers picked up the team’s wins with Dave grabbing two, hitting three tons, a 140 and a 160 and Lance the other with three straight tons, a 121 and three 140s.

The promotion chasing Arrows looked good from the top to the bottom of their line up but three players won all their games.  They were Joel, who hit 6 tons with a high score of 154, Bob (1 ton) and Luke.  Mel added 7 more tons to bring his total into the 70s for the season.
