Playing just for kicks!

THE scene was set for Friday night darts with a difference: Malta v England; Lithuania v Scotland, with most bars loud and proud, supporting their national football teams.

But Lady Macs v Bar Leones didn’t go the distance because the visitors couldn’t handle the decibel level. They took their leave before completing the fixture, and the committee awarding an 8-0 victory to the hosts.

Marilyns A lost their opening game at home to Ourplace Breakaways, then upped their game to take the next seven. And Buzzing B’s were in top form at Nutty Nautas, securing another victory by 7-1.

Nauta Nomads travelled to Ourplace Playgirls, and, after a close game, took the trebles and the draw, although Debbie had to put up with Stella (the lady or the beer?).

There was nearly a shock on the cards at Loch Inn as top chuckers Sandys were the visitors, and, with a last-ditch trebles win, shared the points to keep level at the top with Legends.

And the Legends came away 6-2 victors over Naughty Nauta, for whom Mark checked out on 119 for the highest finish of the season.

Grizzly v Fluffy is always a lively encounter, and so it turned out again as Ourplace Playboys snatched the threesomes to take a draw at The Pub.

The Tavern’s good form continued at Palms Sports Bar with a 7-1 win. The home side were unable to find a double for most of the night, yet found compensation in the wonderful food.

Boothen welcomed Phoenix Bar, and, after some fine arrows, emerged 6-2 winners, with Steve’s two maximums and Sam adding another 180 for the hosts. Oh, and finishes of 120, 112 and 110 for Joe, Sam and Ray.

At Gaffers, Loch Inn’s Wayne hit a maximum but couldn’t stop the home boys taking the game 7-1. What an amazing sport we participate in as Tezza hit a 16-darter, then couldn’t hit a barn door in the next leg. Matt then had 23 darts at double 1, only for his next three darts to give him a perfect 180. Funny old game!

Two of the league’s big boys, Pas O Nadas A and Scruffy Macs, travelled to Waterfall and Emerald Lounge respectively, and both recorded victories without losing a match.

Sundowners hosted Spear Chuckers, and the 6-2 result did not do justice to the closeness of the matches all night. Graham, from the mi valle boys, hit a maximum… and the word on street is: “Don’t mess with Maggie!”
