Tense ac­tion in week seven com­pe­ti­tion

Pilbara News - - Pilbara Sport - Sean Fitz­mau­rice

Week seven of the Kar­ratha Dampier Men’s Darts As­so­ci­a­tion had the teams play­ing rounds in Kar­ratha and Dampier.

At the Kar­ratha Recre­ation and Sports Club, the Man­grove Jacks hosted the Iron­men and were in for a hard night af­ter los­ing the first three games.

The Jacks fought back to get on the score­board but the very pol­ished Iron­men ti­died the match up six games to three.

The Pythons and the Magic traded wins one game at a time and it came down to the last game of the night for the Pythons to take the hon­ours, five to four.

Out at Dampier, the Mer­maid Ho­tel’s lo­cal sides, the Is­lan­ders and Ex­ports, hosted the Tigers and Chalkies from Kar­ratha and the hon­ours went one apiece.

The Is­lan­ders were un­der the pump from the start and won a few games later in the night, but couldn’t stop the ram­pag­ing Tigers and ended up going down six games to three.

Mean­while, the Ex­ports took the choco­lates from the new kids on the block, the Chalkies.

Strong play by the Ex­ports set them up early and when su­per Wally Robin­son clenched his sin­gles, it was all over for the Chalkies, six games to three.

Young Gaabi­nou Palmer, from the Chalkies, played in only his sec­ond-ever match and won both his sin­gles.

New play­ers are wel­come and can con­tact the pres­i­dent on 0422 297 694 or go to the KDMDA Facebook page.
