Mackay and Whitsunday Life
There were six matches scheduled in this week’s Airlie Beach Darts Premier League on Sunday morning.
Jamie Maher took on Jayden Lloyd, Hawkeye Ricking was against Arthur McMinn, Andy Peel against Joe Wilson, Jayden Lloyd played Seumas Rose, Arthur McMinn had another match this time against Andy Peel, and finally Jamie Woods against Gary Robbie.
Jayden Lloyd got out to a fantastic start against Jamie Maher taking a 4/1 lead before Jamie rallied to win four straight legs to take a narrow 5/4 advantage.
Jayden won the next leg to tie the game up at 5 all, before Jamie won the next two legs and the match in a close 7/5 encounter.
Arthur McMinn won his first match 7/2 over Hawkeye Rick, and then backed that up with an impressive 7/4 victory over Andy Peel. That was Andy’s second loss of the day suffering at the hands of Joe Wilson earlier by 7/1, Joe topping the league table going into the Easter break.
Jamie Woods went joint top with Joe after his fine 7/4 win over Gary Robbie, who continues to play well this season, hitting 4 x 140’s in that match against Jamie, indicating that some wins are only around the corner.
The round was closed out with yet another close encounter between Seumas Rose and Jayden Lloyd, Jayden’s second match of the day, with both the players taking a share of the spoils between them with the match finishing in a 6/6 draw.
The Premier League is sponsored by Mika Airlie, Whitsunday Tattooing Airlie Beach, and Master Butchers Whitsundays.
