Premier League Season 2 Preliminary Finals
Scorpions 10 vs Peeping Toms 11
There wasn’t a lot to separate the top 3 over the course of the season and this closeness was reflected in this absolute belter at Chermside. There was nothing separating the two teams after 6 games but Toms grabbed the next two and then opened up a decisive-looking lead with two more to make in 9-5. We’ve seen many times that the Minor Premier Scorpions have got plenty of class and fight and this was the case again tonight. They won three of the last four games of singles to get within two with the doubles to come. Both doubles went to a decider and it was Scorpions who managed to close them both out to force the 1001 team game decider.
Tensions were high for this one, as you can imagine but it was Toms who managed to hit the winning double and launch themselves into the Grand Final.
Bobby best Scorpion with 2 doubles and 3 singles wins with a maximum as well with Kingy on great form for Toms winning a doubles and all 4 of his singles, also with a 180 on the night. Vital contributions from the remaining Toms with Rick winning 1 doubles plus 2 singles, Sammy 2 singles and Chris one singles.
A GRADE Season 2 Preliminary Finals
Seagulls 8 vs Pinoy Darters 11
The final team to join the Scoprion B have been established by Pinoy defeating the Seagulls. The Seagulls who led 2-1 after the doubles could not contain Pinoy who took the singles round 4-2, 4-2 before the reliable Roger and Mel sealed the win in the 3rd round to cement a place in the final.
There were 18 dart games for Nigel and Gary while Mel has a 17 dart game. Unlucky for the Seagulls who have had a good season, no doubt they will be firing next year.
B GRADE Season 2 Semi Finals
The Links 5 vs Mustangs 8
The Mustangs advanced to next game of the finals, and the Links having lost their prelim were fighting for a second chance at the big game tonight so no one was taking it lightly. Yash and Rupen got The Links off to a good start with a doubles win, and then followed up in the next round with another win from Yash and Pieter put a win against his name. The Mustangs took the opportunity to get a solid advantage kicking it off with doubles wins for dynamic duos Lindsay/Matt and Richo/Peter S. They followed up the next round with winning games 3-6 giving them a handy lead of 6 v 3 going into the last round. Yash came through for The Links and won the first came of the round, which they needed to stay in the game. The Mustangs answered back and Richo took game number 2. Game 3 between Ian and Pieter was a nail biter and went down to the wire on the third leg, and at the same time The Links took game 4 in two, so they were within eye shot of the big prize. Unfortunately to The Links Ian scored the winning double and took the game, set and match for the Mustangs, which sees them advance to the GF! The Links had a great season, and ended up as minor premiers, but it really shows the level of competition and how far B Grade has come with number 2 and 4 on the table getting a shot at the trophy. It’ll be a cracking GF!
