Reverse week, or revenge week

The start of the second round fixtures is always interesting to see ow the sides fared against each other the second time around.

The division one leaders, Hairy Bull played the Three Cups and won 8-1,an exact repeat of the earlier game. Michael Matthews of the Cups hit a 180 this time around.

The Diamond in second beat the Hairy Crown 9-0, compared to a 7-2 10 weeks ago. Paul Turner checked out 112, and George Clark hit a 180 in this match.

The Old Endeavour won 8-1 won against the Phoenix PD, this match was a huge swing in fortunes, the first game had ended 6-3 to the Phoenix, Ryan Lucas checked out on 107. Apparently it was 8- Forrest, just making sure that everyone knows.

The Bull A completed the double over the Admiral Cups, a 5-4 win this time. A tad tighter than the earlier game in the season which ended 6-3.

The Whitfield Cups ran out 8-1 winners against the DWMC, two 180s in the match. One a piece for the Scott brothers Morgan and Luca. This win was an improvement on their 6-3 in November.

In division two, big winners on the night was 8-1 for the Real Diamonds against the Crown A, first time around this match was 5-4 to the Diamond. The one in this game was Andy Collins, sorry Andy!

Another 8-1 on the night, this time the Boars Head A against the Endeavour Spartans. An improvement on the 6-3 last time.

The Dewdrop won 6-3 against the DSAA A, this is an exact reverse of the previous fixture so a nice turn around for the Dewdrop.

The Diamond C won 6-3 against the Crown B, Colin Townley hit a 180. Another reversal, as the Crown won that first game of the season 5-4.

Finally in division two the Bull Dogs completed the double over Tilmanstone, this victory was 5-4 compared to the 7-2 home win.

In division three the Eagle A are still unbeaten which therefore means they have completed a double. They beat the Northern Diamonds 7-2, an improvement on the 5-4.

The Red Lion have done the double on the Phoenix C, 6-3 this time with Kev Shredder Fisher hitting a 180 for the Phoenix. A repeat score of their first match.

The Eagle C lost 5-4 against the Sportsman for the second time this season and the Phoenix Rising won 6-3 against the Golden Eagle, it was 7-2 first time.

And finally in division three it was 6-3 for the DSAA Hope against the DSAA Misfits fir the second time this campaign.

Division three was the only division which all winners on the first game of the season also won on the reverse fixture.


Half way point round up.

It is the half way point of the Dover Invitation Darts League, and we will start are round up in division three.

You may remember that I said last week the 100% of one of the division three sides had to go, but in-fact the game was played earlier in the week due to one of the sides unable to play on that Friday. Its great to see that despite them being the top two sides, both unbeaten, that they mutually agreed to play at an earlier date.

The Eagle A were the winners of this match against the the Red Lion, great sportsmanship guys.

The Eagle C beat the Golden Eagle 7-2, this means the Golden Eagle are the only side still looking for a win this season.

Third placed Sportsman lost 5-4 against the Northern Diamonds, the Phoenix Rising had a 6-3 win against the DSAA Misfits and finally the DSAA Hope won by the same margin against the Phoenix C.

One of my favourite lines added to a facebook post this week for the results was “A massive congratulations to Ian Maxwell on busting 180, it was Hilarious!

In division two the Real Diamonds are out half way point leaders. They won the Diamond derby 7-2. The match included a 180 for Mags Sullivan and a 110 checkout for Dean Clemence.

Second is the Boars Head A, they beat the DSAA A 5-4, the same scoreline Tilmanstone recorded against the Dewdrop. Antony Jones hit a 105 checkout in this one.

Not a great night for the Crown sides, the A side lost 5-4 against the Endeavour Spartans and the B side lost 7-2 against the Bull Dogs, the Dogs are now up to third in the table.

In division one the Hairy Bull beat the Whitfield Cups 5-4, the match included five 180s from the Cups. They were hot by Morgan Scott, Luca Scott, Paul Perkins, Darren Everett and Matt Boxall.

The Diamond beat the DWMC Maddogs, 6-3. 180s in this match from Ben Baldwin and Jim Penman, a 121 checkout from Darren Hyder and a 116 from Brian Pearce.

The Admiral Cups beat the Three Cups 6-3, and the Old Endeavour beat the Hairy Crown 5-4. Crown were 4-1 up in this one as well, 180s from Ray Bourne and Billy Bristow.

Ash Battie of the Bull A hit a 180 in his sides 5-4 win against the Phoenix PD in our final game of the night.


Blog – The run in

With just two weeks left of the league campaign, we really are in the business end of the season.

In division one the Hairy Bull are virtually champions, the 5-4 win the had against the Phoenix PD means that they would need to lose their final two games of the season of the season and the Diamond win their final two matches for them to not win the league.  Considering they have not lost all season I think its is well odds on that they will be champions.

The Diamond beat the Crown Arrows 5-4, they were 3-0 up before a spirited fight back from the Arrows.

The DWMC A beat the Real Diamonds 6-3, the Whitfield Club beat the Three Cups 7-2 and the Old Endeavour beat the Admiral Cups 8-1.  Therefore the Whitfield Club were the only side in the bottom four that picked up a win this week.

Highlights in division one games were 180s from, Ricky Edwards, Jim Penman, Jim Greenway, Si Lee and two fro Jimmy Yarwood.

And the big finishes were 110 Ryan Lucas, 100 Al Terry, 120 Dave Heath and for 100 Paul Martin.

Division two the Phoenix Maddogs and the Hairy Crown are promoted, the battle is to now see who will when the league between the two of them.

This week the the Hairy beat the Bull Dogs 9-0 and the Maddogs lost 6-3 against the Dewdrop 6-3 making them joint on 28 points.

We do know thought that the Phoenix C and the Crown A will finish the season in those relegation zones.  The Crown A did win this week, they beat the Boars Head A 5-4, the Phoenix lost 6-3 against Tilmanstone.

In the final game from division two the DSAA A secured their division two status with a 6-3 win against the Diamond C.  Dean Clemmence of the Diamond hit a 180.

Division three champions the Crown B beat the Eagle 6-3, whilst the runners up spot is between four sides still.  DSAA Hope, Sportsman, Old Endeavour and Phoenix Rising are battling it out.  This week the Old Endeavour beat the Golden Eagle 7-2, DSAA Hope beat the Sportsman 7-2 and the Rising had a bye.

The Northern Diamonds sit just outside that chasing pack, they beat the Misfits 6-3 and the DSAA C beat the Eagle C 5-4.

Jack Isaacs of the Old Endeavour hit a 180 in his match for the Old E, thats his second this season.
