There was no game for us on Tuesday as we were knocked out in the first round of the Team Cup competition which was playing. Chopwell took on Shotley Club B at our place though so we still had a good night in The Chelsmford with a packed bar.
Both teams were playing just a bit below their usual standards but there were still some good individual performances and high scoring. The darts games alternate with dominoes games in this competition until a winner is found. The dominoes are somewhat of an equaliser so you don't get just the usual suspects dominating.
With a double start needed there is tension from the very start, and both teams took it in turns to struggle with a starting double. This was at odds with their excellent practice shots at doubles, and it just goes to show what a bit of pressure on the double can do.
Chopwell won it on the darts, ironically in a leg which they had trouble starting. I'll be dropping a couple of posts about "doubles" over the next few days.
