Gi­ants clash in opener

DARTS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

LAST year’s top two clashed as the Wy­combe & Amer­sham Darts League kicked off this week with first-round Chal­lenge Cup ac­tion.

The luck of the draw saw last year’s Di­vi­sion One Cham­pi­ons paired with 2013 run­ners-up Holmer Green Le­gion C.

Green were off to a fast start to go 2-0 up, only for Wood­burn to hit back to level at 2-2.

Holmer Green won the triples to edge in front once more, but Wood­burn were the stronger in the pairs as first Dan Franzen and Ja­son Hine then Dar­ran Hoare and Andy Long chalked up wins.

Rob Br­ere­ton then took the sin­gles for the cham­pi­ons to clinch the match 5-3.

Last year’s cup win­ners are also through to round two, prov­ing too strong for Winch­more Hill as they trounced them 7-1.

Blaine Jelly hit two 180s in his win, while Nick Tween fired a max­i­mum for the losers.

The bat­tle for brag­ging rights be­tween Cres­sex’s C and E teams went down to the wire with the lat­ter edg­ing it 5-4.

There were first round wins too for RAFA Club, Marsh Le­gion, Ha­zle­mere CC and Holmer Green Le­gion A while Mar­low Le­gion re­ceived a bye into round two.
