This week the top plaudits go to Nap B who managed to break their duck for the season with a 7 - 6 win away to the Fox’s who drop to sixth as a result. Well done to the Nap B for displaying such spirit, despite the tough campaign that they have had. As a triumph of hope over experience it was right up there with a second marriage.
It is as you were at the top of the table, as the Penge Trades and the Brick B both secured 8 – 5 wins away from home and so the joint leaders prepare for their clash on Thursday, knowing that the winners will head the table going into the run in.
Penge Trades had a good win at the Brick A, where despite Gene Hill hitting 2 x 180s on the night, they emerged victorious by 3 clear legs. The Penge boys have had a good season, with consistent performances every week and will be in nosebleed territory if they get a win at the same venue next week.
Brick B travelled to the Maple Tree and won a game of fluctuating fortunes by 8 – 5 after starting well and then struggling in the singles as the Maple fought back strongly. Highlight of the night was the sight of John Matthews turning up looking like Burlington Bertie, a tad overdressed, direct from work and without his darts! Good work. Preparation, as I always say, is everything! Fortunately it did not take him too long to get his eye in!
On to the battle of the Brockley A and B, or the ‘Unsocial derby’ as it is called by some wags. The B turned the tables on the A side with a fine 8 – 5 win. In possibly their finest performance of the season, the B rose to the occasion magnificently like Ron Jeremy on a bonus and the A team’s slow slide down the table continues. They will look to rectify that next week at the Bovill Road venue against a rejuvenated bottom side.
The Nap A bucked the trend for away wins this week with a thumping good win by 11 to 2 against the Catford Cyphers at Refurb Central , aka The Nap. Deryck Breinburg was the star, hitting 4 doubles, which seemed to surprise everyone, especially himself. The Cyphers who have amassed 28 points in the last 4 weeks came unstuck as the wheels fell off, but remain just above the Nap B at the bottom by a solitary point. They face the Brick A who are stuck in third after a couple of tricky fixtures in the last fortnight.
Keep the faith and press on to the end of the road.
GREAT DARTS !!!
