Mackay and Whitsunday Life
We had our last club trophy contested on Sunday morning at the Airlie Beach Bowls Club, with The Players Club Captain the prize on offer for the players.
Round 1 results were for Premier League points, with the victors advancing to the knock out stages.
There were wins for Kam Reason, Art McMinn, Jamie Maher defeated Dom Friend in a sudden death play-off leg.
Gary Robbie got a bye as the defending champion Jamie Woods couldn’t defend his title on the day unfortunately, and Joe Wilson defeated Andy Peel.
Dom Friend got a second bite of the cherry as the best loser from round 1, he played Gary Robbie in a playoff match to see which players would advance back into the competition.
Dom won that to face Jamie Maher yet again. It was another tight one, but this time Dom had a little too much for Jamie taking his place in the final winning 4-3.
Kam Reason defeated Art McMinn on the other side of the draw 4/3 to set up a match against Joe Wilson in the other semi final. Joe narrowly won that 4-3 to face Dom in this year’s Players final.
Joe played some great darts all day, as did Dom, but great scoring power along with clinical doubling saw Joe lift his first trophy at the club to put a new name on the trophy.
Congratulations Joe on a well-deserved win.
Thank you to our sponsors Mika Airlie Whitsunday Tattooing Airlie Beach and Master Butchers Whitsunday & MBW On the Barbie.
