Darts comp play­ing out its fi­nal rounds

Seymour Telegraph - - SPORT -

The fi­nal round of the win­ter com­pe­ti­tion kicked off with the top of the ta­ble Avenel Steeltips host­ing the win­less POW Rebels.

The Steeltips prov­ing too strong on the night, de­feat­ing the Rebels 9-2 and de­liv­er­ing the Rebels another loss to close out the sea­son with­out a soli­tary win to their name.

Avenel’s Adam Lynch scored two tons and two 123s, Liz Hen­zell threw two tons, 125, 138 and high peg of 66.

Cap­tain Rick Wylie jagged him­self a ton and Rob Walden capped off a stel­lar sea­son with four tons, 120, 140 and high peg of 90.

Colleen Hol­ley threw a ton for the Rebels as well as a team high peg of 48, Kaye Ten­nant chucked 112 and Trish Stu­art scored her­self 140.

Next up the Bot­tom Pub Pi­rates played off against the Royal Ras­cals, and the Pi­rates were up and about early, win­ning all the team games and putting the Ras­cals on the back foot.

The fi­nal score doesn’t give a true in­di­ca­tion of the close­ness of the two teams, with all but two games go­ing to three legs in a tight tus­sle that ended with the Pi­rates tak­ing home the choco­lates 8-3.

The high­lights for the home team in­cluded 115 to An­drew Har­ri­son, a ton for Steve Kil­roy, 109 for Dale Traf­ford, a ton, 140 and 48 peg for Dan Kil­roy and Drew Gran­tham threw him­self 125 and a high score of 177. Well done Drew. Bren­dan Rogers threw 102 and 117 for the vis­i­tors and John Crock­ett was the Ras­cals’ top scorer with a 140.

Third game of the round had the Golf Club Aces go­ing head to head in a do-or-die clash against the Broad­ford Vik­ings.

The Vik­ings were des­per­ate for the win as they fight it out for a fi­nals spot. Flex­ing their mus­cles in a dom­i­nant dis­play the Vik­ings dis­patched the Aces 7-4 to keep them within a sniff of fi­nals ac­tion.

The home team was well led by Dan Raynor, who slammed in four straight tons; Adrian Blacker chipped in with a ton.

New­comer Dave Ring threw him­self 140 and 109, Frank Roberts snagged two tons, 101 and high peg of 72; but Emily Wills stood out about the pack with two tons, 120, three 140s and high peg of 55 in an im­pres­sive in­di­vid­ual per­for­mance.

Peter Myles led from the front for the Vik­ings, fin­ish­ing his night with four tons, 121, 140 and a game high peg of 100.

Jayde Pear­son chipped in with a ton and 121; Graeme Hogg threw two tons; Mark Jones scored him­self two tons, 121 and high peg of 74; and Mark Rud­dick was on song with a ton, 121, 123, 125 and high peg of 48.

The POW 26ers went head to head against the Rail­way Rene­gades in game four.

A win to the 26ers would put to bed the Vik­ings’ chance of con­sec­u­tive fi­nals ap­pear­ances.

The ‘Gades gave it their best against the higher ranked team but were ul­ti­mately over­come by a much stronger and ex­pe­ri­enced 26ers side that is prep­ping it­self for fi­nals.

The 26ers won the game 7-4 which locks them in for their maiden fi­nals ap­pear­ance and en­sures the Vik­ings have a long sum­mer of ‘‘what ifs’’ and ‘‘maybes’’ to keep them com­pany over the Christ­mas break.

The home team’s high­lights in­cluded four tons, three 140s, two 180s and round high peg of 101 for Torin Hel­more in another jug­ger­naut per­for­mance.

Ben MacPher­son scored 140 and 107 and cap­tain Shan­non Jack­son was solid with 140 and high peg of 64.

The Rene­gades were well served by long-time SDDA ser­vant, John Porter, who played his fi­nal game for the ‘Gades as well as the as­so­ci­a­tion, fin­ish­ing with four tons and two 135s.

Scott Oak­ley fin­ished off a fine sea­son with two tons for the vis­i­tors.

Ev­ery­one in­volved with the Rene­gades and SDDA wish John and his fam­ily all the best for their fu­ture en­deav­ours wher­ever they may take them — there will al­ways be a Rene­gades shirt wait­ing for you.

The POW Kings hosted the POW Mis­fits in the fi­nal game of the round; the Kings dom­i­nat­ing the con­test and tak­ing home the points with an 8-3 vic­tory.

High­lights for the Kings in­cluded two tons and peg of 57 to Jar­rod Dug­gin; three tons to Ray­mond Maloney; four tons and three 140s to Gary Power who re­turned to the team just in time for fi­nals.

But the stand out for the game had to be the Kings’ cap­tain Ter­ran Crispin who set the tone for his team, throw­ing seven tons, 123 and 140 in a good cap­tain’s per­for­mance, boost­ing the con­fi­dence for the up­com­ing fi­nals se­ries.

The Mis­fits’ Brian Forge was dan­ger­ous all night and fin­ished with three 140s and team high peg of 98.

Ge­off Maggs fin­ished the sea­son with a sin­gle ton and Noel Whitling re­turned to the team and fin­ished with three tons and 140.

Af­ter an en­thralling sea­son of up­sets, high pegs, PBs and an in­cred­i­ble num­ber of tons thrown across the com­pe­ti­tion, the fi­nal­ists for the win­ter com­pe­ti­tion are the POW 26ers and Golf Club Aces in the first Semi Fi­nal at the Royal Ho­tel, and the Avenel Steeltips who went up against the POW Kings in the sec­ond Semi Fi­nal at the Prince of Wales ho­tel on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 30.
