A near full strength Two Darts were ruthless against the Vipers barnstorming to a 6-0 lead before eventually winning 17-4. Pat didn’t drop a leg and rarely gave his opponent a sight at a double whilst for the Vipers it was Jack Frost who starred with 2 wins. It would be remiss of me not to mention one of the biggest busts I have seen since I stumbled across my uncle’s porn collection. With 168 left captain Matt Knott set himself up perfectly with two triple 20’s and wanting a 16 or an 8 to leave a double rammed one right into the middle of the triple 16 … ouch.
Scorpions and Imports was neck and neck all night and with 2 singles left to play the league leaders led 10-9. It was the old and wise heads of Dave and Ant who led the Scorpions home with Dave’s 10 tons only surpassed by Brian’s dozen capped by 4 wins. For the Imports John Rankine didn’t drop a leg in his singles hitting 14 tons and two 18 darts games.
Motley Crew bounced back to beat the high flying Ex Pats 14-7. After going behind 3-0 the Crew did some soul searching and came out firing in the singles winning the next 8 games. Aaron and Richard led the charge with 3 singles wins each and for the Ex Pats a special thanks to Jane Fitzpatrick who filled in and by all accounts totally carried Mick in their doubles win.
A see-sawing match saw the lead change several times before the Dragons pulled through 11-10 against the Panthers. It was a solid team effort from the Dragons with Greg Lennon winning all his singles. For the Panthers Tamm starred with 12 tons and 2 singles wins.
