Feel the (lack of) power

DARTS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THE lights went out on any hopes of com­plet­ing a full pro­gramme of fix­tures in the Wy­combe & Amer­sham Darts Club League this week.

There were three games that could not be com­pleted due to a power cut in the area, and Holmer Green Le­gion C will prob­a­bly have felt most ag­grieved.

Hav­ing pro­duce the best per­for­mance of their sea­son to lead a strong Tot­teridge SC side 9-3, the loss of power brought the game to an early halt.

How­ever, there was a happy end­ing as the league’s com­mit­tee de­cided to award each team one fur­ther point each, to give Holmer a 10-4 win.

There were 180s from Ken Shirley and Liam Burgess and a 111 out­shot from Jeff Greena­combe, plus a 100 fin­ish from Dave ‘Curly’ King, all from the Le­gion side.

Else­where, there was a max­i­mum 180 from Jim Cow­ley as Wooburn Club took over at the top of the Di­vi­sion One ta­ble with an 11-3 win at the RAFA Club, while at the other end Winch­more Hill CC bagged a first win of the sea­son with a 9-5 tri­umph over Ha­zle­mere CC.

The top two teams in Di­vi­sion Two, Cres­sex CC C and Mar­low Le­gion, clashed and it was Cres­sex who re­mained top after win­ning 9-5 and now lead the ta­ble by seven points.

Cres­sex E were not at their best but still came away with an 8-6 win at the Judo Club to go sec­ond, while Cres­sex A got back to win­ning ways with a hard fought win by the same score at Holmer Green Le­gion B, de­spite the power cut also end­ing that game early.

Fi­nally, Bourne End CC and Marsh Le­gion looked likely to be a close en­counter, and so it proved, with the Le­gion tak­ing the hon­ours 9-5 to go up to fifth in the ta­ble.
