Chelmsford 4 - 6 Derwentside

Practicing on the 19's

Although we raised our game a little from last week's Away leg, Derwentside did too with plenty of 80+ / 100+ shots.

Most of the games were quick, with no problems on the finishing.
By the time the Team and Doubles games were over the score was evenly matched at 2-2, but we dropped off a touch in the Singles games.

Peter was our Player Of The Match, gaining a very assured point in the first Singes game of the evening.

Derwentside 7 - 3 Chelmsford

Practice on Bob's 27 : Two and a marker

The Derwentside started well and quickly hit a consistent note. There were a few new faces in their team from my point of view (including their new Landlord) and they all seem to have settled in well.

I prefer where they have their board now in the side bar. It gives more space for people who like to stand to the left when throwing and there's a good atmosphere for darts.

On a disappointing night for us I still thought we had joint Players Of The Match nonetheless ; Peter and Kris both played well enough to win their Doubles and Single points. Without these performances it could have been even worse for us.

Congratulations to Alan / Mark / Craig and crew, and we look forward to seeing them in the return game.

Singles Cup, the last 16

Peter, Kris, and Alan represented The Chelmsford in the last 16 of the Singles Knock-out Cup up at The Derwentside last night. Sadly, Kris and Alan were knocked out despite them both finding the trebles and putting up a strong challenge.

Kris was getting a good number of 100+ shots and Alan seemed to be on his way to a win before his opponent made up a lot of ground with a 180 to snatch the winning leg.

Better news with Peter though, who made it through to the last four for the big match on Finals Night. Although he didn't reach his own high standards there was nothing wrong with the important part of the game - the finishing. If he takes his A Game up there he'll match anyone, so fingers crossed and well done Peter

Chelsmford 5 - 5 Moorcock "B" Team

Although we played well in the opening Team game to take a lead it all went wrong from there. We lost all three of the Doubles games and the first Singles game to find ourselves 1 - 4 down despite some reasonable play from us.

Player of The Match though was Lena, who won a very important Singles point to steer us back on track and make it 2-4. Trailing 1-5 down would have been difficult to overcome, and thankfully we were able to win 3 of the remaining Singles game to secure a draw.

The Moorcock "B" Team are above us in the league, so these 11 points over the two games will be useful.
