The white­washes con­tinue at the top of the darts league as Hagg Bar A look un­beat­able.

The Di­vi­sion One cham­pi­ons con­tinue to sweep aside op­po­nents with The Clachan Bar the lat­est team to come away with noth­ing to show as they be­came the fifth team to go down 9-0 to the league lead­ers.

St Peter’s con­tinue to press Hagg Bar as they too came through an­other game un­beaten af­ter reg­is­ter­ing an im­pres­sive 8-1 home win over Fereneze.

With both teams still un­de­feated it is only leg dif­fer­ence sep­a­rat­ing them.

Court Bar con­tin­ued their re­cent run of vic­to­ries to re­main in third place fol­low­ing a hard­fought 5- 4 home vic­tory over Ca­fuf­fals.

The game was 3- 3 af­ter the sin­gles and Ca­fuf­fals looked to be tak­ing the first of the dou­bles games af­ter win­ning the first of three legs.

But fin­ishes of 118 and 102 from Robert Cas­sidy took the dou­bles game 2- 1 for Court Bar and that set them up for the vic­tory and both points.

Fly­ing Horse A hold their place in fourth af­ter they recorded an im­pres­sive 7-2 home win over Key­stone A. Horse are only two points be­hind Court Bar with a game in hand so will be look­ing to make the most of it when they get the chance.

Rail­way Inn were the big­gest climbers of the week, go­ing up two places into eighth af­ter their first win of the sea­son, a white­wash 9-0 win over Hagg Bar C who, along with The Clachan, have still to win a match.

Di­vi­sion Two lead­ers The New Saints stretched their un­de­feated run to six games af­ter bring­ing home both points from an away visit to Hagg Bar B that re­sulted in an 8-1 de­mo­li­tion of the home side.

Kel­burne Cricket Club stay in touch two points be­hind the Saints af­ter their own 8-1 vic­tory over Hazel Pi­rates.

Court Bar B re­main third on the same points as Kel­burne but be­hind by a leg dif­fer­ence of five as they hit a 7-2 tri­umph over home team Gryffe Inn.

Pock­ets climb two places into fifth af­ter the tight­est of games against Arthurlie Inns, when they used all of their home ad­van­tage to come back from 4-2 down to win all three dou­bles matches and se­cure the points.

Rail­way Black Cats also climb two places this week into ninth fol­low­ing a nar­row 5-4 vic­tory over lo­cal ri­vals Key­stone B.

The last of the teams climb­ing the ta­ble this week are Tar­tan Rose who were 6- 3 win­ners, mov­ing them into sev­enth.

Thir­teen play­ers had big scores this week, all hit­ting max­i­mums with Drew Cal­lary of St Peter’s and Richie Bail­lie of Hagg Bar A scor­ing two apiece.

There were 13 games that fin­ished in 18 darts or less with the best of th­ese be­ing a 14-dart leg from Andy Boul­ton of Hagg Bar A to go along with other legs of 15 and 17 darts as he recorded a 3-0 win for his team.

The best fin­ish of the week came from Martin Good­fel­low of Kel­burne Cricket Club when he checked out on 158 in one of his matches.

Tonight there will be a £100 prize money tour­na­ment in Tar­tan Rose with reg­is­tra­tion tak­ing place at 8pm.

And next week sees week seven of the league fix­tures and in Di­vi­sion One all eyes will be on the top of the ta­ble as St Peter’s could go to the sum­mit with a win over The Clachan Bar – as Hagg Bar A have no game.

Mean­while, in Di­vi­sion Two, there are games be­tween Key­stone B and Arthurlie Inns, Tar­tan Rose and Rail­way Black Cats and lastly Gryffe Inn and Fly­ing Horse B where the teams are only sep­a­rated by two points.
