Leading the wins for the Straight Arrows, Mike Beno, managed to take three wins from the Shooters, as well as team top score of 117.
Over at the Parksville Legion, the Eagles Hall Eagle Eyes took a bit of a beating from the Cascadia Bristle Bashers. Taking the lead early, the Bristle Bashers had only one loss for the first four sets, before the Eagle Eyes rallied and took a couple wins in the final three sets. Too little, too late, the Bristle Bashers won the match 23 to 10. Leading the wins for the Bashers, Warren Potter took all five of his matches with a good-natured smile.

High score of 140 was shot by spare Rodney Arnold, who won two games as well.
Playing at their home venue, the Qualicum Beach Legion Short Sighted Crew hosted the X-Men to a closely matched night of darts. Ping-ponging wins from set to set, the teams were tied, but since the home team had won all three doubles matches, which contributed to their 18 to 15 win over the X-Men. Leading the wins for the Crew, Peter Bisiker took five of his six matches, as well as hitting the team’s high score of 135. Leading the team in wins, X-Men Glenn Dilworth and Pony Moore, each had four wins in their five turns at the oche.
