Another week over in the KDDL Leagues, kindly sponsored by Williamsons Butchers, and another display of big hitting across the board. The Legion continued their winning streak against Quoyburray 'B', whilst the Wanderers move into second following a ground out win against the slightly unfortunate Bilco Boys. The Golf Club v Untouchables match was postponed, giving Sanday and Commodores the chance to move equal on points with the Golf Club, which they both did. Indeed the Sanday game against Nomads produced some of the most notable scores of the week, including a 12 dart leg from Ivan Leslie and an 11-darter from Paul Foubister. Untouchables 'A' finally got their first points of the season with a win over Arrows.
The scorecard of the week was found in the 'B' league, with multiple 180s and high finishes in the Exiles thumping of the Vikings. RBL2 remain the only other side still on maximum points from the first three games, but they were pushed all the way by the Young Loons. The Sands finally played their first game of the season but lost out to Muppets, followed the next night by a loss to Tankerness. The Muppets in turn lost out to Quoyburray on Tuesday as they maintain their unbeaten start to the season. Shapinsay look like they will be up for a title push this season, brushing aside Sanday 'B', while over in the Legion the Tigers slipped up against the ever dangerous Murray Arms boys.
Tomorrow night (Friday) sees the Tom Notman Singles taking place in the Legion, names by 7.30pm. Tom was another founder member of the league and played an important role in the early development of the KDDL. The format is the old league format; 301 double start, best of three legs, and bull-up, mugs away and bull-up the order of play.
