Week 9 Dart Action
Playing at the Qualicum Beach Legion the Jokers Wild and the Toolshed Triples met for thirty-three games of darts. Starting off on the right foot, the Jokers Wild took two of the three doubles and three in the first set of the five singles. The Triples dominated the singles sets until the fifth, when the Jokers Wild had a five-win sweep. The final set was a Triple domination, but just shy of taking match point. Winning their first match of the season, the Jokers Wild were amazed at the outcome. Leading the wins for the home team, Richard Rempel won four of his five games, followed by three wins each from Kevin Gillespie and Emma Vanier. Richard pinned a 97 out to put himself at the top of the leader board, tied with Pony Moore. Leading the wins for the Triples was a three-way tie between Jim Hood, Darren Tabler and Keith Reimer, each winning four out of their six matches. Dynamite Denise Tabler, besides being killer on a double 17, hit a 125 to tope the scores for the Triples.
Final score Jokers Wild – 17, Toolshed Triples – 16
The Parksville Legion Respect-A-Bulls hosted the Qualicum Beach Legion Short-Sighted Crew to a fun night of darts. Wins volleyed back and forth from set-to-set between the two teams, but, despite a final set thrust by the Crew, the home team pulled up victorious. Leading the wins for the Respect-A-Bulls, new member, Tom Ayley, brought five wins in six matches and Randy Morrow followed up with four wins in six and hit the team high score of 135. The Crew’s Peter Bisiker was unbeatable in his five matches and Captain Ron Stanley topped the high scores with a 140.
Final score Respect-A-Bulls – 18, Short-Sighted Crew – 15
The Eagles Hall Eagle Eyes welcomed the River Benders to the Eagles Hall Tuesday night. Dominating the doubles, the Benders got a head start on the Eagle Eyes, but the set wins volleyed back and forth until the final set when the River Benders dug deep and pulled in four wins in five. Leading the wins for the River Benders, Captain Jim Thompson and Rod Swindells both won four of five games and team mate, Craig Dempsey, hit team high scores of 133, 127 and 121. Leading the wins for the home team, Colleen McNeill and Toni Crompton each brought three wins in five games to the night’s total. Topping the scores for the Eagle Eyes, Colleen hit a 125 in her last match of the night. I wish I was the chalker for the match between Eagle Eye Alan Barry and Bender Jim Thompson – both hit a couple of noteworthy scores (Alan 115 & 108 – Jim 121 & 120) – all that math!!
Final score Eagles Hall Eagle Eyes – 13, River Benders - 20
Match between the Eagles Hall Straight Arrows and the Cascadia Bristle Bashers was postponed due to a(nother) player shortage. Once again, please ask all your friends and neighbours if they are interested in being a spare.
Also playing at the Eagles Hall, the Eagles Hall X-Men were the latest team defeated by the Qualicum Beach Legion Shooters. Bringing it, the home team bested the away team in two of the three doubles matches – bringing Shooter’s Lorraine Paquette and Lee Page’s unbeaten doubles streak to an end, but it was a short-term lead in the match. The home team was shooting plenty of high scores – Glen Dilworth hit a 140 and a 121, and Captain Todd Burnham hit a 132 & 117. Pony Moore hit an 84 out in his match against George Wallis. Leading the wins for the Shooters, Captain Lorraine Hopps was undefeated in all five singles. Rocky Paquette had team high score of 160.
Final score Eagles Hall X-Men – 7, Qualicum Beach Legion Shooters – 26
