Player shortages plagued two of the teams playing at the Parksville Legion Tuesday night. Wishing a speedy recovery to all involved. We look forward to seeing the game highlights in the next few weeks.
It was a full house at the Eagles Hall though. The Toolshed Triples hosted the Parksville Legion Respect-A-Bulls to an evening of arrow slinging. Leading the wins for the home team was a two-way tie with two wins each for Darren Tabler and Jim Hood. Noteworthy, Denise Tabler hit a 60 out. Spare Wendy Haines was the top scorer for the team, hitting an impressive 126 and a 101. Leading the wins for the Respect-A-Bulls was also a two-way tie with six wins each for Randy Morrow and Tom Ayley. Randy topped the scores with 134 and 120. Newbie Leila Raynor gave a good showing with three wins in six matches, her best night to date.
Final score Toolshed Triples – 7, Respect-A-Bulls – 26
Filling up the rest of the Eagles Hall, the Eagles Hall X-Men hosted their venue-mates, the Eagles Hall Eagle Eyes to an exciting night of darts. Sweeping the doubles to start the match, the X-Men stumbled in their first couple of singles sets, rallied and then the Eagle Eyes edged out the wins in the final two singles sets. The three doubles matches were the deciding factor in this match for sure. Leading the wins for the X-Men, Glen Dilworth bested four of his five opponents. Captain Todd Burnham had the most prolific high scores of the night - 125, 120, 114 and 100. Pony Moore shot high score of the night with a 140 in his only winning match. Leading the wins for the Eagle Eyes was shared by Arless McNeill and Toni Crompton, both winning all but one of their five matches and both hitting team high score of 140 in their final matches of the night.
Final score Eagles Hall X-Men – 18, Eagles Hall Eagle Eyes – 15

Leading the wins for the Jokers Wild, Richard Rempel was undefeated in his five matches and captain, Jolene Swanson, and Dave Edwards each contributed three wins to the team total. New to the game, Shawn Vanier hit team high scores of 134 & 102. Richard popped in a perfect score in his match against John Curtis and accepted the round of applause graciously. Congrats Richard!
