There’s no change at the top of either of the Williamson’s darts leagues.
In the ‘A’, the Legion moved into second place in the undefeated table, by winning their 56th game with a 9-3 defeat of Meadowbank, who remain pointless.
The Commodores entered their first-half campaign with a 10-2 win over RBLM, who have done very well in their first year in the top flight.
And what has happened to Sanday? They crashed to their fifth straight defeat, losing 8-4 to the Wanderers, and they play the Legion in the last game of the first-half.
No results in from the other two games.
What a disastrous week for the Murray Arms, dropping five points in two games, losing their postponed game in Shapinsay 7-5, and then drawing with the Legion Arrows 6-6 — a great result for the Legion boys, but not for the Murray Arms boys, as they trail Shapinsay by seven points and have played a game more.
As there’s no card in for the Sands ‘2’ v Shapinsay game, the Likely Lads are back on song, following a good 8-4 win over the Tankerness boys, who are third in the table.
Also, the Sands are going strong in second spot, after a 8-4 defeat of the Nomads.
Deerness had a good result, beating the Shore 9-3, but better luck for Shore ‘2’, beating the Bilco Boys 7-5.
Only 11 180s were scored, by Robbie Stanger, Alan Gray, Michael Muir Jnr, Ivan Leslie, Billy Eunson, John Thomson, Colin Findlay, Olly Bethwaite, and Keith Bain, with two from Kevin Gray, which takes Kevin to 27 — only three short of last season’s total!
High checkouts: 100 from Keith Bain; 101 Derek Ward Jnr; 118 James Flett; and 161 Neil Croy, the second highest of the season.
It is a big night on Friday, with the Festive Open Singles being held in the Masonic. Names by 7.30 p.m. and it’s male players only, as it’s a ranking points event.
Also, the festive raffle will be drawn, so get these tickets in by 8 p.m., sold or unsold, to the Masonic. They can be handed in to treasurer Davy Henderson at the Bank of Scotland before that by team captains who get them from their players.
