Darts comp’s are held in leagues

The Charity Cup semi finals and final were played in the First Blues Rooms on Friday.

Byrnes A played Ballinderry in the first semi, with Ballinderry quickly out of the blocks winning the first two games through E. Moulds (2x100, 21 darts) and Nigel Brown (140). Alas this was their lot as Byrnes A took the next six for an easy win. P. White (100, 140, 19 darts), N. Dunwoody (2x100), N. McCabe (100), N. Dillon (3x100), S. Lennon (100, 140, 21 darts), D. Geddis (2x100, 20 darts) to book their place in the final.

The second semi was a much closer affair, going to the very last game before Maghaberry A emerged as victors over Marketview.
