Cannons 13 v Javelins 8 – Match Stats
I enjoy a good come from behind story almost as much as Elton John and this was no disappointment here. The Javelins led all night only for a 3rd blitz to the Cannons winning all 6 singles to take the match. Banger and Craig set it up with 3 singles wins each with Banger hitting a 180 and a 17 dart leg, champion effort.

Raptors 14 v Slashers 7 – Match Stats
This match never fails to turn up the heat and the Raptors certainly did that. 180’s to Liam, Don and Corey with Corey hitting a 14 darter and and along with Liam smashed out 11 tons. The Slashers fought hard but like the match above conceded all the last round of singles to make the loss seem more of a stampede than it was. Carlos and James again superb with 3 wins, Carlos with 11 tons and James with 9 including a 114 peg. The win gives the Raptors the B grade trophy and promotion to A Grade.
Whilst the match was even in the ton count it’s the doubles count that matters. Shooting to a 5-0 the Devils fought hard and could have come closer. Ben and Gary for the Jockys with 5 tons and 4 wins each with some young fella named Pat hitting a 180. Devils were very consistent across the board. Bill and Steve with 2 wins a piece and Christian and Ash with 4 tons each.
