DARTS: Saracen’s Head duo keep 100 per cent records alive

Have your say

TWO New Saracen’s Head teams in two separate leagues still have flawless 100 per cent records intact on the South Holland darting scene.

In Spalding and District Ladies League Division One, New Saracen’s Head made it 11 wins from 11 with a comfortable 14-4 victory at Elizabethan.

Lindsey Wignell top scored with a 137 as her team went six points clear at the summit.

The Saracen’s were beaten in the Cup though, as Blue Bell A edged them out 8-7 – thanks to a 2-1 win from Amanda Holden in the final leg.

Also on the ladies’ scene, Julie Fines hit a fine 180 as Horse and Groom A beat Riverside 11-7.

Three players all managed 140 throws in Fenway A’s 10-8 triumph over Holbeach USC too.

They were Tina Gent, D Johnson and J Butterworth.

Over in the Gedney Hill and District League, New Saracen’s Head C are already eight points clear of the rest after making it seven wins on the bounce.

Their latest triumph was a hard-fought 19-12 return from a trip to Golden Lion.

Duncan Hunt and Mark Horspool caught the eye with a 110 finish and 160 start respectively, but it was Lion’s James Truman who shone with a 180 maximum.

Lion stay in second place, but it’s now looking like Saracen’s Head’s title to lose.

Elsewhere, in Aron Moyses Spalding Town League Division One, struggling Fenway B grabbed the most eye-catching result. They edged out Lincoln Arms A 11-10 to do their survival hopes the power of good.

Geoff Herd threw a 180 maximum for Fenway, while Lincoln’s Kev Carter managed a 117 checkout.

There was a cracking clash in Pinchbeck and District League Division One, as 56 ton shots were made in Lincoln Arms A’s 13-8 victory over Lamb and Flag C.

In a clash between two of the league’s top three teams, Neil Glover managed a 16-dart leg and Alan Harris weighed in with a 17-darter.

Important singles wins from Mark Taylor, Tim Halifax, Allan Harris and Mike Kearn were key for Lincoln A.
