Habour Bar B make it three from three but Gallery A trim their lead at the top

There was no hatrick of whitewashes for the current league champions of the Habour Bar B team this week.

After taking 16 out of 16 opening points to start the campaign, this weeks opposition of the Old Ship B weren’t exactly relishing the encounter but managed to take 3 points with 5 going to the champs which was respectable and probably a fair result over all.

It may not have been the most memorable game in terms of quality but its still 3 from 3 for the Harbour and they still sit pretty on the top.

However, there closest challengers of the Gallery A team have trimmed the gap at the top to 2 as they won the derby match on the main stage against the Gallery Boys.

Its 7 big points for the Gallery A and well deserved but the Gallery Boys will take some conciliation from the fact that they were right in this contest but could only manage 1 point from the 4 games that went the distance.

The Old Ship A have to be commended for shifting through the gears in the last 2 weeks following a stuttering start. They have picked up 13 points from the last 16 and there 6-2 win over the Harbour A team is a notable away from home victory.

Similarly, to the Gallery Boys, the harbour A will have went home kicking themselves that there bag contained only 2 points when they managed to post 8 legs on the board! Final leg deciders playing a key role in the outcome of this contest.

John Joe’s Lads didn’t take long to erase the memory of last weeks thumping off the champions and every credit to them for bouncing back this week with a comprehensive 7-1 victory against their local rivals of John Joe’s B.

It looked like being a close match after they shared the opening doubles but the Lads rattled off 12 straight legs without reply to galvanise a big win, which catapults them back up the table into the top 4.

The Brook House have had a sluggish enough start to the season too, but there match against visitors of John Joe’s A produced a cracking game of darts that after 20 legs were blasted out, both sides had clocked up 10 legs a piece and carved themselves out an honours even slice of the pie at 4 points each.

Well balanced throughout but yet again John Joe’s A proving to be a thorn in the side of teams when it comes to the singles exchanges.


In division 2, last week’s new sheriff has to settle for deputy this week as Dave Wolohan reclaims the badge of honour as the Corner House A move back to pole position with a significant win over the Old Ship C.

The Corner House took control of the home advantage from the get go and had only dropped 1 leg before Peter Doyle managed to post a point for the visitors. 7 big points for the Corner put them out in front by 2.

Last weeks leaders of the Gallery B made the short journey down the road to the Gin Mill and were greeted with a barrage of resistance as the Gin Mill hammered in 6 legs without reply and looked very comfortable and content heading into the singles.

But the Gallery B came out fighting and turned the game on its head with 4 straight wins before the Gin Mill rejoined the party to take the finale to split the difference at 4 apiece.

It was a cracker of a game and arguably the best so far that division 2 has had to offer.

The impressive starters of Sally’s B make it 3 unbeaten with a decent 5-3 home victory of the Corner House B. The win sends them into third place and yet again they maintain the top dog status in Sally’s!.

The Gallery C were awarded a walkover and all 8 points in their match with the Brook B this week due to the Brook B cancelling the game at too short notice due to insufficient players.
