DARTS: Super Saracen’s race to a perfect ten
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.
