A three way tie at top of table

THE top two, Drumgor and Eire Og, shared the spoils last Thursday night to leave a three way tie at the top of the Craigavon Darts League with two matches to go.

Drumgor’s Shane lennon give them the perfect start with a 2-0 win over close friend Dermy McStay while also hitting a 177 at the beginning of the second leg and Paul Lennox beat Micky Campbell by the same score to leave Drumgor two up in the match.

But back came Eire og with Chris Cinnamon beating Paul Donnelly 2-0 and Paul Callaghan beating Marty Craig 2-1 to level matter.

Stephen Duff restored Drumgor’s lead with a 2-0 win over Sam Frazier but unfortunately for Drumgor Stephen’s brother Eamon missed six doubles in each leg before losing 2-0 to Eire Og captain Mark McLarnon.

With the match tied at three each it was Mick Grady who put Eire Og in front for the first time beating Joe Duff 2-0.

The last match was a repeat of the 2010 individual final and again it was Clive Hanna coming out on top when beating Micky Dunwoodie 2-1 to square the match at 4-4.

INF had a comfortable 8-0 win over Clann Eireann to leave all three teams at the top on 18 points.

Celtic club have not giving up hope on the title just yet but are three points adrift with a game in hand after they beat the Stables B team 6-2 with Dee Blaney and Niall Heaney getting the wins for Stables B.

But Celtic also play Eire Og and INF in the next few weeks so they will have a big say where the title goes.

The Stables A moved level with Derryhirk on points, who have now lost three in a row after an impressive 5-3 win over them.

This Thursday sees the three sides taking place in the Celtic Club at 8.30pm and on Saturday Drumgor will be hosting the third qualifier of the Drumgor Open with the action starting at 2pm.
