Premier League Round 14 Full Ladder
Dragoffs 8 vs Scorpions 12 Match Stats
This was a dress rehearsal for the first week of the finals but, while the teams will be the same, there’s a chance the personnel will be different so it’s hard to read too much into the result. Saying that the Scorpions would be happy to finish the season with a win and this was thanks in no small part to their prowess in the doubles games which they won 4 games to nil with the singles games working out as an 8-all draw.
Three Dragoffs stood out with Max (2 14s, a 17 darter and a 125 peg) and Carlos (3 140s and a 17 darter) winning three times and Blags (2 140s, a 180 and a 17 darter) twice.
A steady all round performance from Scorpions with three players picking up 4 wins apiece: Heals hit 4 140s and a 180; Brian 4 140s and Bobby a 180. Scotty showed how dangerous he can be with three wins with a score of 140, a peg of 141 and a 15 darter.

Wins across the board for the visitors with Shane (2 140s) just edging it with 3. Everyone else won twice. Along the way Nev hit 3 140s, Richard 1 140 and James a 171.

Peeping Toms 12 vs Motley Mustangs 8 Match Stats
All 5 Toms got a run out for their last game of season 1 with everyone chipping in to ensure they ended with a win. Ross (3 140s, an 18 darter) and Sam (2 140s) won 4 times each, once in their doubles partnership and in each of their three singles. Also worth a mention was Kingy who won 3 times and hit 4 140.

Strays 9 vs Raptors 11 Match Stats
Finally, at the last attempt, Raptors did what they have threatened for much of the season and closed out a win against a higher placed side. Once again this went to the last game but this time they were able to close out a well fought win.
Corey’s performance was absolutely magnificent and probably the best we’ve seen this season. As well as winning 6 wins from 6, he hit 9 140s, a 180, a 171 and two low games. On top of these achievements he was also winner in what has to be the game of the season when he took on Frosty. Both players traded ton plus scores with Corey winning the first leg in an equal season best of 13 darts. Frosty hit back with a 17 darter and then had a dart at the bullseye for a 12 darter in the decider. It wasn’t to be and Corey took the game in 15 darts. The winning averages of those 3 legs (13, 17 and 15 darts) works out at a fraction over a hundred which is exceptional. Well played to both!
Blades also threw really well with 4 wins, 3 140s and a 180. A welcome return to BNSDC for Liam who chipped in with some vital big scores in his partnership with Corey which made all the difference to the result.
For Strays Frosty (6 140s and that 17 darter) won 4 times, Dave (5 140s and a 180) won 3 times and Ciaran (3 140s and a 180) won twice.

B GRADE Round 14 Full Ladder
Wanderers 4 v Mitchelton Mustangs 11 Match Stats
What a great night! So many of the games went to 3 legs, it was great to see these teams really fight it out. Although the score shows the Mustangs had a terrific night, only 2 games went down in 2 legs – well done to both sides for a great competition. It was even stevens until the 3rd round, and the Mustangs came out firing and took all games in the 3rd round to take the win for the night. It’s really encouraging to see each game go to the 3rd leg though, it was anyone’s for the taking. Solid scoring from both teams – Wanderers Captain Snow Royal had a solid performance with 3 ton plus scores and 2 wins proving the doubles combo of himself and Tim to be strong alliance. Lindsey had a great night on the tonnes – a 140 and three ton plus scores and 3 wins. Unfortunately this does leave the Wanderers on the bottom of the table, as hot contenders for the wooden spoon and the Mustangs securely in 4th place in B Grade, but great night had by all and awesome to see the Wanderers fight for the win.
Cannons 12 v Jockys 3 Match Stats
Well top placed Cannons came out rearing to defend their position at the top of the ladder, and what a great job they did. The Cannons had a great performance – every team member took a game win on the night and special shout out to Mike with 2 wins, a 140 and 6 tonnes, Graham with 3 wins and 4 tonnes, Jason with 2 wins and 3 ton plus scores. Jockeys also had some fierce shooters on their side – Newty with a solid two 140s, 3 tonnes and 2 wins and Thommo with 4 ton plus scores, greatly helping take the fight to the Cannons. Had the Jockeys taken this night, they would’ve joined The Links and the Cannons sharing top place in B Grade, but unfortunately they just missed out. Cannons go on to take 1st place now on a solid 16 points, however the next round will be the telling of final places and overall winner of the minor premiership. Will it be the Cannons? or will The Links take another win to join them in top spot?
