DARTS: Maximum score is little comfort to Ann

It was a bittersweet night for Elizabethan’s Ann Parker in Spalding and District Ladies’ League Division One Cup.

She fired a 180 in the clash at Fenway A, but was twice beaten 3-0 as the Spalding side progressed 11-4.

Meanwhile, Katie Dunmore’s fine straight legs win over Riverside’s M Belding sealed New Saracen’s Head’s place in the semi-finals.

Blue Bell B made a flying start and were 7-2 up after the first three games. Although Shelly Gillingham’s leg in the fourth game sealed their passage, Amanda Holden’s win and Pam Stevenson’s 3-0 meant only a single leg separated the sides at the finish.

Horse and Groom are through in the Division Two Cup as two wins for Sandra Bemrose helped them see off Lincoln Arms.

Judy Chamberlain got Royal Mail Cart off to a 3-0 winning start at Deer’s Leap and her team-mates capitalised on it, the Spalding side eventually going through 9-6.

Lake Ross join them in the semis, thanks to wins at Golden Lion for P Gretham, J Ironmonger, L Kelk and L Brooks.

In the Division Three Cup, there was a good tussle for the top score of the night. Wendy Hyland (Bell B) took it with 134, followed closely by Georgina Exposito (Drayman’s) and L Simpson (Bell A) on 133 and Bull team-mates Trudy Stevens and Mandy Burrows with 132 and 131 respectively.

Aron Moyses Spalding Town League: Lincoln Arms B marched into the League Cup final in emphatic fashion.

Hole In The Wall B could offer little resistance as the title chasers romped to a 7-0 win.

In the final they will meet Fenway A, who won an epic semi against Drayman’s Arms C.

The match had 49 scores of 100 or more and Nick Moyses’ average in the singles games was 26.37.

Neil Glover, of Drayman’s, had a fabulous 14-dart leg and his side established a 3-2 lead.

But Fenway A still managed to clinch their place in next March’s final when the doubles pairings of Andy Bingham with Tim Halifax and Moyses with Paul Edgeley both won in straight legs.

Fenway C are into the Division Two Cup final after crushing Birds B 6-1.

K Arnold and P Emery prevented a whitewash defeat by snatching the deciding leg in the final game.

Crowson VW Pinchbeck and District League: A great match between Division A’s top two ended all square.

Leaders Lamb and Flag A led 3-1, but Royal Mail Cart roared back with Stev Mosedale, Jack Chilvers and Dave Bourne putting them 4-3 ahead. But Simon Hill, who had an 18-dart leg, rescued a point for the Whaplode side.

Riverside D duo Bill Cook and Keith Baker fired 180s while Ye Olde Dun Cow’s Craig Norbury used 18 throws in one leg, finishing with 20, treble 20 and double tops.

Holbeach and District League: James Truman sealed his passage to the next round of the Division Three Singles Cup with a brilliant 15-dart leg.

It came in the deciding leg of the final against Jody Reynolds.

Truman also had the highest score of the venue with 174.
