At the week­end with some Biggen­den play­ers in­volved in Mother’s Day du­ties, Spor­ties play­ers evened up the teams.

Biggen­den club cap­tain Leanne Dun­can said it was a great week­end.

“We shared lots of laughs and were reac­quainted with old friends,” she said.

For Spor­ties’ Kath James, it was great to be back in her former home town.

She said she had only been back play­ing darts for the Spor­ties for four weeks.

“I was pleased to be able to then play for Biggen­den when they were short of play­ers,” she said.

One of the high­lights for her was be­ing able to watch son Alex back play­ing foot­ball for the War­riors on Satur­day night.

Spor­ties player An­nae Ben­stead said her group was busy pre­par­ing for an in­vi­ta­tional week­end of darts on June 10-11.

“As we have so many play­ers nom­i­nated we are hav­ing the event at the Her­vey Bay RSL Club,” she said.

“There will be play­ers from around the re­gion in­clud­ing Nanango, Biggen­den and Kin­garoy.”

The fi­nal score of the week­end was Spor­ties 75 to Biggen­den 37.

For Biggen­den most tons went to Corey Doyle and Leanne Dun­can. High­est ton, Keith Hor­wood and Kathy James. Most pegs Keith Hor­wood and Kathy James. High­est peg out, Corey Doyle and Kathy James. There were no bull fin­ishes for Biggen­den play­ers while Kath James threw a high score of 180.
