Chelmsford 8 - 2 Cricketers

"Special Stuff" to report!

Although we managed the same score against The Cricketers as in the Away leg last week it was a very different game. The Cricketers were scoring well and with more consistency than previously, but two of our players were making all the difference for us, getting 5 of the 8 points with some great highlights to report.

Alan hit a 180 plus winning finishes in his Singles and Doubles games. Man Of The Match for us though was Peter, also hitting a 180 but also hitting the three winning finishes in Team and Doubles games, plus a 17 darter in his Singles game. He becomes the first player since I've been doing the Brownie Points thing to get 5 of them in a single game. This takes him to joint top of the Brownie Points table with Kris, despite having to miss a third of our games due to work.

The Cricketers played a steady game and would normally have returned more points for their efforts, but Peter and Alan just swung it for us on the night.

Cricketers 2 - 8 Chelmsford

We hit a very steady pace against The Cricketers on Tuesday night, taking the lead in the Team Game as Lena hit the D12 on the first dart to win the Team game and we continued to play well in the Double games to take a 0-4 lead. Nothing spectacular, just steady throwing and not spoiling the finishes.

The Cricketers were certainly having their moments, but "consistency" was wining the points, and The Cricketers were unlucky to find their best performances being matched against our best games too. For example Angela from their team would have won plenty of games with her scoring had it not been for Kris' 114 finish in their Singles game

I was really pleased to hit a 180 in my Doubles game with Kris, but Man Of The Match goes to him. Kris was one of three players to hit two winning doubles, but his 114 checkout was our best of the season so far.

Team Cup : Chelmsford 4 - 2 Leadgate Cricketers

We played in the first round of the Team Cup competition on Tuesday. We started really well with a good win in the first of the three 1001 Double Start, Double Finish team games. The games in this competition alternate between these darts games and Singles Dominoes games, with the points from each being of equal importance.

By winning the first dominoes game we took a 2-0 lead, but from that point our darts weren't as good as those of Leadgate Cricket Club. We had trouble getting the all important starting double, but even after staring our scores weren't as high as theirs.

We lost the next two darts games, but thankfully our dominoes players came to the rescue, wining all three of their games. Despite losing the darts 1-2 the 3-0 score in the dominoes gave us a 4-2 overall victory.
