Lower Clarence darts

Posted on by in Sports

The 5th Round was a BIG round; featuring the biggest upset of the competition so far, a change of leadership, amazing games and a ma-hoo-sive peg. It was as thrilling as it was action packed, so to find out who did what to whom and what the heck I am even talking about, read on….

Brewers 8 v 3 Vigilantes

The champions are back on song and moving back up toward the top of the table as they inflicted the Vigilantes heaviest defeat for the season so far. Wayne Hinchcliffe was the star of the show, throwing some excellent darts all night while Allan Rooks also remained undefeated for the night. High points for the away were few and far between but Jacob Jones once again picked up a win while Breanna Blyth saw off Kingsley Ward with impressive 104 peg.

Tryers 2 v 9 Peggers

In what will have to be described as the upset of the season, competition leaders, the Tryers, suffered their first defeat as they crumbled to a majestic performance by the Peggers. The manner in which the visitors dispatched the home side was highly impressive with both Cathy Felmingham and Karl Sismey throwing 20 dart games to see off Seb Fear and “Pommie” John Solonyka respectively. It was John Solonyka and Jeremiah Fear who saved the Tryers by picking up wins to at least get them on the board in what was a very one sided affair.

Eagles 3 v 8 Dragons

The Dragons are now the only undefeated team in the competition and move into the top slot on the table after yet another dominant performance, this time over the struggling Eagles. The home side have not had the results go their way in a while and were hoping to cause an upset in this one, but the visitors got off to a great start and wrapped the game up early with wins across the board. Nick Potente continues his bid to become the first player in the comp to play off 1001 with another 24 dart game which featured a very handy 86 peg out. Speaking of peg outs, there is no way this review could be complete without mentioning the home teams Phil Walton who finished off his defeat of Eric MacDonald with a mind blowing 152 finish.

Dolphins 3 v 8 Tigers

In the battle of the bottom 2 teams it was the Tigers who walked away with the victory in a win which moved them away from the bottom end of the table and into the mix for a finals berth. Double up wins for Brian Malone, Cathy Rooks and Sandra McGrath got them home while Bernie Napier picked up what is becoming his usual win for the week. The Dolphins will be looking to bounce back this week if they want to stay in touch with the pack.
