West Midlands Suffer Hertfordshire Reverse

Red Dragon Darts

West Midlands County Darts Organisation have played their fourth fixture in the Andy Wheeler Fisheries Championship Division of the UKDA National League, a home tie with Hertfordshire. Prior to the fixture West Midlands were placed fifth in the division with fifty-seven points and their visitors fourth on sixty-three points both having played three games. So with home advantage West Midlands were hoping for a win which would see them overtake their opponents and move up the table.

Unfortunately that was not how it turned out as the ladies had a somewhat disastrous weekend with both the ‘A’ and ‘B’ sides suffering 6-0 whitewashes. Neither was it a good weekend for the men as the ‘B’ team lost their Saturday game 7-5 and the best the ‘A’ could get on Sunday was a 6-6 draw.

Match awards went to Ash Khayat who won 4-1 against Shane Smith with a 27.35 average to take the ‘B’ award and man of the match for the ‘A’ side was Shaun Carroll who won 4-1 against Jack Pledger with a 29.11 average.

The overall result for the weekend was a 25-11 win for Hertfordshire which saw who have two games in hand on West Midlands and next to bottom Cambridgeshire also have one game in hand.
