West Lothian Courier - - Sports - Cal­lum Car­son

East Calder’s Denise Bird was in stun­ning form in county ac­tion against Scot­land North.

Her im­pres­sive per­for­mance on the day helped her seal the Lady of the Match award as she swept to a 3-0 clean sweep.

She was ably as­sisted by team-mate Irene McIn­ness of Ar­madale who also helped her sides cause with a 3-0 tri­umph, but there was a nar­row 2- 1 de­feat for Michelle McLay in the Ladies B event.

Wil­liam Bor­land was in typ­i­cal im­pres­sive dis­play for the Men’s A team, fir­ing in a 30+ av­er­age, but he was out­done by Ian Jolly of An­gus.

Other per­for­mances of note saw Jim Mitchell grab a 4-0 vic­tory while Kieran Bird and Graeme Bird Snr. lost out in their matches 3-1 and 4-2 re­spec­tively.

It was yet an­other busy week of darts ac­tion in the lo­cal scene which kicked-off with the usual cul­prits mak­ing their way to the cap­i­tal to the Mur­ray­field Sports Bar for Ed­in­burgh League fix­tures.

Wil­liam Bor­land fired in five legs of 20 darts or fewer to coast to an 8-2 vic­tory while there was an 8-0 clean sweep for Ar­madale’s Scott Bail­lie.

Graeme Bird hit a max­i­mum 180 and a fine 123 game-shot on his way to an 8-5 vic­tory while Rab Dick sealed a 7-2 win in the Gold League.

How­ever, per­for­mance of the night must go to Jim Mitchell as he out­fought both of his op­po­nents de­spite be­ing se­verely tested, win­ning his two games 8-5 and 8-6.

Kirknew­ton Innkeep­ers hosted Old Wine from Shotts in the Bath­gate Fri­day Night league and grabbed a hard-fought two points thanks to a 6-3 win.

Cop­pies A did a num­ber on Lam­mies A with an ex­cel­lent 7-2 win which in­cluded a clean sweep in the dou­bles.

The Grand Cen­tral Rail­road­ers are now the only un­de­feated team in both di­vi­sions in the West Calder and District Darts League af­ter they scored a stun­ning 9-0 clean sweep vic­tory over the Doo Club Fanciers to keep their place atop the Cham­pi­onship League.
