Top guns Car­sons sink the Ea­gles

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Sports -

Car­sons held on to top spot in the Air­drie and Dis­trict Darts League af­ter a con­vinc­ing win against The Ea­gle.

The champions have en­joyed a blis­ter­ing start to their cam­paign – and are the only side in the di­vi­sion to hold four wins in a row.

This came de­spite a 16-dart score by Craig McKin­non for Ea­gle.

League new­boys The Post have en­joyed a good start this year, how­ever they suf­fered their first loss of the sea­son to in-form Work­men’s B.

The Workies held on to sec­ond spot in the ta­ble, and are level on points with The Swan.

Wil­sons Arms were on the end of a heavy de­feat af­ter their trip to The Swan, and re­mained rooted to the foot of the league ta­ble fol­low­ing the 10-2 loss.

The Swan were dom­i­nant through­out, with James Parker scor­ing 16-dart and 21-dart wins, along with Tony Hig­gins who grabbed a 19-darter.

In the dou­bles, Gor­don Jack­son and Lauchie Black rounded off the win with a 22-dart score.

The Clans­man have had a slug­gish start to their sea­son so far, how­ever, they up­set the Bank So­cial Club with an im­pres­sive 8-4.

Kristof­fer Ross was the key man for the bat­tling Bankies, scor­ing two 180s.

De­spite some in­con­sis­tent form so far the Clans­man out­fit will now be look­ing up af­ter pulling them­selves away from the foot of the ta­ble.

The Work­men’s A are still search­ing for their first point of the sea­son af­ter a 9-3 de­feat to The Forge.

The Al­bert Bar are the only other side sit­ting on zero, af­ter a nar­row 7-5 slip-up at the The Boar’s Head.
