Derby fizzer

Seymour Telegraph - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

The lat­est round of the win­ter com­pe­ti­tion started on Mon­day evening with the sea­son’s sec­ond Broad­ford derby.

After the Bot­tom Pub Pi­rates up­set the Broad­ford Vik­ings in their first meet­ing, the Vik­ings were look­ing to level the ledger in Battle of the Bot­tom II, and did so with a con­vinc­ing 10-1 vic­tory.

The home team strug­gled against the re­lent­less pres­sure of the Vik­ings with soli­tary tons thrown by An­drew Har­ri­son and Dale Traf­ford.

Steve Kil­roy gave his best and he ended the night with two tons, a 125, 130 and 132.

Drew Gran­tham threw a ton, 105, 138, 140 and pro­vided his team with their only win on the night in a solid solo per­for­mance.

Vik­ings cap­tain Mark Jones led the way for the ‘‘vis­i­tors’’ with two tons and a 140, Mark Rud­dick slammed in a cou­ple of tons, Jayde Pear­son con­tin­ues an im­pres­sive first sea­son with three tons and Peter Myles showed his class with two tons, three 140s, a 125 and game-high peg of 77 to steer the Vik­ings home.

In the next match-up, the POW 26ers went head-to-head with the Golf Club Aces as the 26ers con­tinue to push for a top four fin­ish.

Un­for­tu­nately, the Aces had other plans as they put an un­der­manned 26ers out­fit to the sword with a 7-4 win.

26ers cap­tain Shan­non Jack­son bat­tled hard with three tons, Steve Ash lobbed in a ton, and An­nie Rogers threw a ton, 125 and a 140.

Torin Hel­more was dom­i­nant again, throw­ing a 115, 125, 134, 140 and a 180 in just his sec­ond game for the 26ers — well done.

High­lights for the Aces in­cluded a ton for Adrian Blacker, Steve Raynor man­aged a 121, Emily Wills threw three tons, Dan Raynor threw three tons along with a high-peg of 60 and Frank Roberts was in good form with two tons, a 118 and game high peg of 71.

Game three had the POW Kings host the Avenel Steeltips in a heavy­weight clash that on pa­per had the mak­ings of an epic game of darts, but turned into a fizzer with the Kings mak­ing light work of it with an 8-3 dom­i­na­tion.

The Steeltips were struck a blow with one of their top two play­ers break­ing a thumb in the lead up to the game, but it mat­tered lit­tle as the Kings were un­stop­pable with cap­tain Ter­ran Crispin smash­ing in five tons and a 140, Jar­rod Dug­gan threw a ton, Gary Power found the tre­ble of­ten with five tons, a 105 and 123 and Ray Maloney snuck in a high-peg of 54 to go with three tons and a 140.

Steeltips cap­tain Rick Wylie had a good night on the oche throw­ing four tons and two 125s, Liz Hen­zell had a quite night by her stan­dards with a soli­tary ton, but Rob Walden made up for it with an im­pres­sive nine tons, five of which were in the team games, as well as a 140 and a game high peg of 56.

Game four had the Rail­way Rene­gades line-up against the win­less POW Rebels in what turned into a marathon night of com­pe­ti­tion, with the Rene­gades go­ing the dis­tance and tak­ing the four points with an 8-3 vic­tory.

The Gades were well led by John Porter, who threw a ton, 140 and round high peg of 89.

Ricky Ko­zlowski man­aged a 101 and well done to Tammy Kil­roy with her first ever sin­gles win.

The Royal Ras­cals hosted the POW Mis­fits in the fi­nal game of the round with the Ras­cals try­ing to thwart the Mis­fits’ top four as­pi­ra­tions.

They bat­tled hard and were in with a sniff, with Allan Solomon get­ting his first sin­gles win of the sea­son, be­fore the Mis­fits put an end to their fight, tak­ing the choco­lates with a 7-4 win.

Stu­art Crock­ett was the only triple-fig­ure scorer for the home team, fin­ish­ing with a 120, 121 and a 160.

The Mis­fits’ Noel Whitling threw two tons for the night, Michelle Half­penny man­aged a sin­gle ton in a quiet night by her stan­dards, Ge­off Maggs slammed in three tons and a high-peg of 51, but Brian Forge stood out with a ton, 105, 120 and game high peg of 74 to wrap up round 14.

There may only be five matches re­main­ing in the reg­u­lar sea­son, but the top four are far from locked in with a mas­sive month of darts to come.
