Gosport Mens Dart League
Unfortunately the Foresters PA have been withdrawn from the GMDL. All their matches will be changed to 9-0.
At The Carisbrooke last night 32 pairs entered this seasons competition with many other people supporting. In the last two seasons the finalists have been the same pairs but this season it was to change.
A very high standard was seen throughout and the last eight were M Pegram/A Wright, P West/M Ward, D Barnes/P Betsworth, L Evans/I Harty, M Symes/N Pateman, R Norster/N Milner, P Sharp/B Leishman and M Harper/S Head.
The resulting semi finalists were: M Symes/N Pateman against M Harper/S Head and L Evans/I Harty against M Pegram/A Wright.
Lee and Ian came through 3-2 in a very close match, with Martin and Sam defeating Mike and Nick 3-0. This meant they had defeated both finalists from the last two seasons on their way to the final.
The final itself was a see saw affair with Martin and Sam powering to a 2-0 lead and looking like 3-0 when Lee and Ian dug in and snatched a leg. This then pushed them on and they made it 2-2. Martin and Sam went 3-2 up before again Lee and Ian levelled the match. In the deciding leg it looked like Martin and Sam would be comfortable but Lee and Ian came back strongly, eventually it was a tale of who could hit the winning double first, with both sides having chances,
Eventually Sam hit the winning double to claim this seasons Pairs trophy.
Once again Thank You to Tina and Darren for their hospitality.
Another good turn out for the Triples last night with 19 teams and many spectators. Thank you to The Market House for hosting the night.
As expected some strong triples teams were entered and some close games throughout the night.
The Losing semi finalists were both from RAFA Spitfires, consisting of S Ward, S Sweeney and P West in one team and M Ward, R Atwill and T Maitland in the other.
The Final was between The Duke Of Connaught 1, who had won the Threes earlier in the season and The Foresters Lounge 2. All three legs were close with both teams having darts at doubles. The DOC went ahead against the darts in the first leg before the Foresters won the second against the darts. The deciding leg was very close with with the DOC having three darts to win before The Foresters S West hit the winning double.
The DOC team was T Butler, P Winter and T Moore, The Foresters team was S West, I Setterfield and J Robinson
