Week 4 Darts Action:
December 7th Dart Highlights
The Qualicum Beach Legion B-Sharps’ struggled to find a full roster on Tuesday night, resulting in a make-up game at the Parksville Legion against the Cascadia Bristle Bashers on Thursday night. Even with a two-day delay, B-Sharps were short-handed, and a four-player roster gave their opponents seven points automatically. Needing no help from the away team, the Cascadia Bristle Bashers Steve Collins lead the home team wins with five in five games played, followed by Don Enockson with four wins to his credit. High score was 133, a feat shared by Don E. and Warren Potter, who also had a high check-out of 110 putting him at the top of the Leaderboard. Stan Foster was the double-out dynamo for the B-Sharps with four wins in six games played. The elusive Arliss McNeill was team high scorer with a 130 and 100x2.
Playing one last time out of the Eagles Hall as a “home venue” the Qualicum Beach Legion Short Sighted Crew hosted the Toolshed Triples. Out-playing their opponents the Short Sighted Crew started strong and stayed strong through their three doubles matches and six sets of singles. Leading the scores for Crew, Don Punter and Lee Page were unbeatable in all five of their matches. Toolshed Triples experienced some player rotation issues, resulting in most of the team, but not all, playing five games each. Wins were consistently two each, with Jackie Anderson whacking out a high score of 130. Final score Short Sighted Crew 24 – Toolshed Triples 9.
Playing at the Parksville Legion the Comfort Group X-Men met with the Eagles Hall Straight Arrows for a fun night of darts. Flexing their mutant superhero muscles, the X-Men took off with bang, and kept firing in the doubles ahead of their opponents. X-Man Steve Stewart was invincible with five wins in five games and a team high score of 134. Not to be ignored, Fraser Vincent was hot on his heels with four wins. The Straight Arrows Ron Keast was nearly unstoppable himself, with four wins in six games and scores of 110 and 116. Keast was beat out for high score by Poul Reimer, who shot score of 140, 108 and 100.
Hosting the Parksville Legion Shooters, the Eagles Hall Eagle Eyes gave it their all at the oche, but fell short of wins for the night. The Shooter’s dynamic duo – Larry MacDonald and Thom Ford – didn’t let a single win get past them. Larry rocked out a 121 for team high score and lovely Lorraine Hopps cracked open the women’s Leaderboard with a check-out of 82! Way to go Lorraine! Showing his team how it’s done, Captain Mike McNulty shot some good darts Tuesday night – scores of 112, 135 and a 140 helped him win three of his five games. Toni Crompton took his advice and also won three matches. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when Harry Van Heerwaarden shot TWO 132’s in his match against Shooter Rocky Paquette – oh the nerves of poor Harry!! Nice darts!!
