Corpy bag the crown in de­cider

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Theguide -

ON Fri­day night in the Widnes & Dis­trict Darts League the Mill Brow SC RTB League con­tin­ued with round 28 be­ing played.

In Di­vi­sion Two, Corpy Club were at home to Birchfield in a ti­tle de­cider.

The match started badly for the hosts as they con­ceded the first three games to the Birchfield’s Matty Fisher, Dave Jones and Dave Her­ley.

How­ever, the des­tiny of the championship was very much back in the mix as the Corpy ral­lied with a vengeance tak­ing all three pairs games to level the con­test as Alan Moran & Mark O’Con­nor (15 darts), Dave Jack­son & Jeff Thomp­son, Dave Pick­les & Alan Pen­ning­ton were all suc­cess­ful in their clashes.

With three sin­gles games re­main­ing in an ex­cit­ing show­down, the Corpy hit the front for the first time through Dave Pick­les.

And the Birchfield’s ti­tle dreams evap­o­rated min­utes later as Mark O’Con­nor put the Corpy in an unas­sail­able po­si­tion at 5-3.

With the ti­tle now safely in the bag, Jeff Thomp­son started the cel­e­bra­tions by tak­ing the final game for the Corpy to put the final seal a mem­o­rable 6-3 tri­umph.

Crick­eters Arms at home to the Mersey Ho­tel saw the Mersey’s Paul Cotty, Danny Ship­ley and Rob Cotty take the first three games.

The Crick­eters Arms then pulled back a point with a win from their open­ing pair, Ian Con­nor & Owen Batty.

The Mersey widened the gap once again with a vic­tory from Paul Cotty & Rob Cotty, putting them in a very good po­si­tion.

How­ever, the Crick­eters Arms cer­tainly had other ideas as four wins in suc­ces­sion on the oche from Paul Ma­son & Tony Ainsworth in the pairs fol­lowed by Graham Fen­ney, Brian Dwyer and Tony Ainsworth in the sin­gles gave their side a fa­mous 5-4 vic­tory.
