Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Premier League Darts

There was a little bit happening at the top end of the league this weekend with both Joe Wilson and Dom Friend in action.

While their rival at the top of the league Jamie Woods had the week off, it was an opportunity for both players to close the gap slightly on the current league leader.

We start with 2nd placed Joe Wilson and his match against Jayden Lloyd. Jayden currently sitting in 8th spot, was looking for his 3rd win of the year, which would leapfrog him over Kameron Reason into 7th on the ladder.

Joe, who suffered only his first loss of the year to Kameron last week, was looking to bounce back here with a win against Jayden.

The contest started out even enough with Joe winning the first 2 legs to nil. Jayden replied by winning the third leg to make it 2/1, but that was as close as he would get to Joe, who put the boot down and ran away with it, winning the match 7/1. Jayden would remain in 8th for now, and Joe closes the gap to Jamie Woods to 2 points.

Gary Robbie sealed his 3rd win of the year by defeating Hawkeye Rick 7/4. That win puts Gary into 6th place on the league table, Gary starting to show some good form. Rick too has shown signs of improvement in his first year at the club, with his first win, I’m sure, only around the corner.

The remaining results of the day saw Jamie Maher defeat Gary Robbie by 7/3 which keeps him within touching distance of the top 4, and Dom Friend beat Jayden Lloyd by 7/1, which keeps him to within 3 points of 2nd place Joe, both those matches were rescheduled matches from earlier in the season.
