Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Round 18, the penultimate round of darts, took place at the Airlie Beach Bowls Club on Sunday morning with fixtures and opportunities running out fast for some players.
Jamie Maher cemented his top 4 status with a commanding 7/1 victory over Gary Robbie.
His main threat for that 4th spot, Kameron Reason suffered a 7/3 loss at the hands of Joe Wilson despite slotting home a lovely 180 in that match.
Andy Peel defeated Art McMinn by a 7/4 scoreline, and Jamie Woods put Hawkeye Rick to the sword with a crushing 7/0 win.
There were also 5 catch up games on the day, most of which were to Dom Friend.
Dom used the day to his advantage, by getting into a rhythm early and never letting up, recording a 7/3 win over Andy Peel, 7/0 over Kam Reason, 7/2 over Art McMinn, and perhaps the match and result of the day, a 7/4 win over Jamie Woods. Both men were outstanding in that fixture.
The days final result went in favour of Joe Wilson over Hawkeye Rick by 7/4.
Joe keeping the pressure on Woodsy in first place curtesy of leg difference going into next week’s final round of fixtures.
Highest checkout of the day and for the season went to Jamie Woods for a 157, there were 23 x 140’s on the day, and Kam Reason hit the only 180.
