Gosport Mens Dart League
A good turnout for the Triples at The Carisbrooke last night, 48 players and many supporters attending.
Throughout the night the standard was high with as there were many strong triples teams.
A special mention to the Clarence B team who progressed to the semi finals having beaten their other team, The Queens Head A team before succumbing to the Carisbrooke A Nippers.
The other losing semi finalists were the RAFA Spitfires who beat Q Head B and the DoC B before losing to the Queens Club A.
The format throughout the night was best of 3 1001.
In the final the Carisbrooke team of J Bradshaw, B Huntingdon and J Harris played against Queens Club A of M Symes, P Harty and P Sharp.
The final was as expected a high scoring match with J Bradshaw hitting 180 in the first leg and also hitting tops to put his team one nil up. The Queens Club responded and P Harty hit double ten to equal the scores.
The deciding leg was tight and either team could have won but with the Carisbrooke waiting on tops P Sharp took out teble twenty and double sixteen to win the match.
Thank you to Scouse for running the competition, Ady Wright for chalking the final and Tina and Darren for hosting the event.
