Night goes off with bang

Seymour Telegraph - - SPORT -

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.
