Archers one game away from cham­pi­onship

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Ricky Zililo Se­nior Sports Re­porter

ARCHERS are a game away from lift­ing the Bu­l­awayo Met­ro­pol­i­tan Prov­ince Darts League ti­tle af­ter run­ning riot over Belle­vue who they clob­bered 27-12 on Wed­nes­day night.

The vic­tory took Archers’ points tally to 26, and if they win their next game they will reach an unas­sail­able 27 points and clinch the cham­pi­onship.

De­spite a con­vinc­ing vic­tory against the lowly placed Belle­vue, Archers cap­tain Ernest Maphepha Sibanda said they will only cel­e­brate af­ter com­plet­ing the sea­son with a 100 per­cent record.

“The guys played well on Wed­nes­day night and were never com­pla­cent be­cause play­ing small teams or bot­tom of the ta­ble teams tends to be dif­fi­cult. Like I said at the start of the sea­son, what we want is to win the ti­tle with­out drop­ping a point and we’re on course to set­ting that record. I see noth­ing stop­ping us from achiev­ing our tar­get,” said Sibanda.

Archers’ trio of Al­bert Tawanda, Tafadzwa Mtomba and Brian Ndlovu hit six packs against Belle­vue.

Mean­while, de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Rail­stars kept their fire go­ing as they beat Wise Wa­ters 26-13, tak­ing their points tally to 23.

Rail­stars had Pa­trick Zimidzi and Moses Nkala hit­ting six-packs against Wise Wa­ters.

Trail­ing the ti­tle favourites by three points, sec­ond placed Rail­stars will now aim at fin­ish­ing the sea­son strongly. – @ZililoR
