DARTS: Super Saracen’s race to a perfect ten

Have your say

Flawless New Saracen’s Head made it ten wins from as many games in Spalding and District Ladies’ Darts League with another dominant show.

The Division One table-toppers kept their perfect top flight record intact by emphatically beating hosts Riverside 13-5 on their own oche.

Katie Dunmore shone with a 109 finish for the leaders, while Dawn MacTavish and Shirley Povey both nailed 140s to send the Saracen’s one point clear.

Second-placed Fenway A lost ground after being held to a 9-9 draw by Horse and Groom A. They needed a 2-1 doubles win from Helen Buffham and Trish Cunningham to rescue a share of the spoils at the death.

Julie Fines (140) and Glynnes Bannock (135) top scored for Horse and Groom.

Ship are some way back in third after cruising to a 12-6 triumph over visitors Holbeach USC. Rachel Wortley’s 140 was the best score on show.

Another side on-song were Elizabethan. They made it four wins from five games with a 10-8 success at Horse and Groom B.

Skipper Ann Parker and Rita Tomizzi sealed the victory with a 2-1 return from the final doubles.

Down in Division Two, Tigers kept their unbeaten record intact with a 10-8 triumph at Jolly Farmer. Theresa Ocock’s 140 was the top throw – and she all but sealed the points with a dominant 3-0 win over Caroline Simpson.

• It was semi final week in Spalding and District League, as top flight leaders Black Lion took a big step towards a possible double.

They saw off Horse and Groom 14-7, in a match that saw Andrew Horspool and Kelvin Crane both throw 180 maximums.

In the Secondary Cup, Rose and Crown B battered Jolly Farmer B 17-4. M Ebbage, P Ford, D Ford, Alex Gostic and Doug McInerney all won their legs 3-0, with Gostic and McInerney both managing 17-dart legs.

It was pretty one sided in the other Secondary semi too, as Whaplode Drove crushed hosts Elizabethan 15-6.

With plenty of ton throws on show, the highest scores came from Adam Godfrey, who fired a pair of 140s.

Meanwhile, the Kelly Foster Cup – in its earlier stages –saw some much tighter matches.

Bell edged out Maples 11-10 in a game that saw K Curtis throw 140, while Abbey saw off Ship by the same score. They were indebted to Dave Kirchin, who defeated Colin Beckett 2-1 in the final showdown.

Horse and Groom also beat Wildfowler 14-7, with Rachel Cooper hitting a big 180.
