Weekly Darts Report

A relatively quiet round of darts this weekend with only four matches on the cards. We begin with a bit of a surprising result, but an impressive one nonetheless, between Kameron Reason and Joe Wilson.

With Joe 2nd from top and Kam 3rd from bottom, you would be forgiven for thinking that this was a forgone conclusion, but Kameron had other ideas.

Going out to an early 4/1 lead, Kameron was playing very well, scoring and checking out consistently. After a small technical issue and a little delay, Joe came out firing, winning 3 legs on the trot, levelling the match at 4 all.

However, Kameron was not to be denied on the day, claiming only his 2nd win of the season, winning the match 7/4, propelling him up the ladder into 7th place.

With little or no time to enjoy the victory, Kameron was straight back into the thick of it, this time he had the daunting task of taking on league leader Jamie Woods.

Kam’s confidence was high, and rightly so, however in truth, Jamie as he so often does, made light work of it, bringing Kameron straight back down to earth with a 7/1 victory.

Woodsy followed that up with an equally impressive display against Seumas Rose, defeating Seumas without dropping a single leg, 7/0.

That compounded a bad day at the office for Seumas, who suffered another heavy loss in his second game of the day, this time at the hands of Arthur McMinn, by 7 legs to 1.

Seumas clearly struggling for wins this season with only 1 so far to his name, which is well below his par, and he’ll be desperate to start putting that right sooner rather than later.

That win for Arthur puts him in a great spot on the league ladder, now sitting in 3rd thanks to that win, currently 2 points above Dom Friend, but with Dom having 3 matches in hand over Art.

Congrats to Joe Wilson on winning the $260 members draw.
