Night goes off with bang
Every round this year has thrown up some interesting games and round four is no different.
The first game of the round kicked off with the Bottom Pub Pirates hosting the Golf Club Aces.
The Aces were on fire early, skipping out to a 3-1 lead before the heat got too much and a transformer over the road exploded, throwing most of the town of Broadford into darkness and ending the night prematurely for both teams.
The decision was made to play the rest of the match at a later date.
Highlights to that point included a ton and 125 to Dan Raynor, a ton to Frank Roberts, a ton and 44 peg for Emily Wills.
The Pirates’ Andrew ‘Harry’ Harrison threw a ton and Drew Grantham managed a 107.
Game two had the POW 26ers lining up against their captain’s old team, the Avenel Steeltips, with both teams looking to settle some debts.
The 26ers had the upper hand early, leading 4-3, before the Steeltips asserted their dominance and took home the bragging rights with a 7-4 victory.
The 26ers’ Shannon Jackson threw a 140, Steve Ash chucked a 101, Mitch McGuinness a ton and Jess Louise had a night out with a 138, 109 and team high peg of 59.
Avenel’s Adam Lynch threw five tons and a 140, Liz Henzell continued her form rise with a ton, 123 and 121, Rick Wylie chipped in with three tons and a 140, Rob Walden threw nine tons, a 140 and game high peg of 94 in an extraordinary display of darts.
Next up we had the POW Misfits and POW Rebels both vying to break their duck for the season.
The Misfits took the points, winning the game 9-2, which rockets them to sixth position.
Misfits welcomed back Noel Whitling, who in his first performance for the season threw two tons, 121 and a 140, Brian Forge had a ton and 111, Beau Maggs smashed in two tons and a 101, and Geoff Maggs had the game high peg of 72.
Colleen Holley had a 133 and Marg Francis threw a 121 in a quiet night for the Rebels.
The Railway Renegades hosted the top-of-the-table Broadford Vikings.
The stats didn’t tell the whole story, and in a good tussle the Vikings managed to win 7-4.
The Gades’ highlights included a 140 and 125 to Roy Kilroy, 107 to Ricky Kozlowski and John Porter chimed in with a 120 and 140.
The Vikings’ Mark Jones threw two tons and a 125, Mark Ruddick hammered in a 120, and Graeme Hogg chipped in with three tons and a 121.
Peter Myles was solid with five tons and an impressive game high peg of 94.
The final game of the round had the Royal Rascals looking to upset the reigning premiers, the POW Kings, but the Kings proved too strong with most of their star players present on the night to take the game easily with a 9-2 victory.
Ray Maloney of the Kings threw four tons and two 140s, Gary Power had five tons, a 125 and 140 to go with a game high 72 peg.
The Kings’ captain, Terrin Crispin, managed a ton and a 125, while Jarrod Duggin chipped in with a 120 and a lazy 170 — well done Jarrod.
Brendan Rogers was the standout for the Rascals throwing a ton and a 133, and he was supported by John Crockett who put in a 112 to wrap up round four.
