DARTS: Duo setting the pace with flawless starts

Have your say

JUST two teams boast perfect records in Division One of Spalding and District Ladies League after a fast and furious start to the season.

Both Fenway A and New Saracen’s Head earned their second wins of the league season last week, beating Elizabethan and Riverside respectively.

NSH have been the slightly more emphatic of the duo – and they weighed in with a 12-6 victory, with Shirley Povey making a 120 check out.

Fenway had to work a little harder for their points, but a 140 from Trish Cunningham and a decisive doubles win from Tina Gent and Maddy Oldfield proved pivotal.

In Division Two, Lincoln Arms have also made flawless progress so far.

Royal Mail Cart became their latest victims to the tune of 13-5, with Mikki Hewitt throwing a 160.

Elsewhere, Lisa Brooks, Chris Crawford and Chris Walley all threw 132’s in Lake Ross registered their first win of the season against Chequers (13-5).

The pace in Division Three is being set by Bull and Drayman’s Arms, who both made it two wins from two.

Carolyn Quant notched a 135 as Bull triumphed 11-7 at Jolly Farmer, while Drayman’s edged past Tigers 10-8.

• THE treble 20 got a hammering in Aron Moyses Spalding Town League last week.

League action took a back seat as the Division One and Two Cups got under way.

Lincoln Arms B are safely through in the top flight, as M Hewitt hit a 180 in their comfortable 6-1 defeat of Drayman’s Arms A.

Following them into the next stage are Fenway A, who had too much for Lincoln Arms A.

Paul Edgley led the charge with a maximum and a win, while Andy Bingham, Nick Moyses and Tim Halifax also enjoyed singles glory in the 5-2 success.

The closest tie of the round saw Drayman’s Arms C edge to a 4-3 victory at Hole In The Wall A.

Chris Sloan nailed a 180 for the hosts, but Drayman’s prevailed at the death with a doubles victory from Neil Glover and Martin Wells.

In the Division Two Cup, Ernie Coulson slammed a 180 in vain as his Royal Mail Cart side were ousted 5-2 by Fenway B. Fellow club side Fenway C are also through after a stirring comeback earned them a 4-3 win at Birds A.

Trailing 3-0 with four to play, J Chilvers and D Morton completed the comeback.
