League leaders Drumgor had to settle for point

LEAGUE leaders Drumgor had to settle for a point last week in the Craigavon Darts League.

They were at home to a Celtic team who really needed the win to keep up their hopes of winning the title in their first year together.

With the first four games shared it was Celtic who might have thought they had done enough when winning the next two games to take a 4-2 lead.

But back came Drumgor and after winning the next game up stepped Eamon Duff and with his match tied at one leg each and with his opponent Adrian Hutchinson missing his double for the win Eamon calmly took out 104 to secure the point and keep Drumgor on top.

The Stables B team were delighted and disappointed at the same time after securing a much deserved draw against an out of sorts INF team.

The Stables will look at it as a point lost and not a point won because with a little bit of luck they could quite have easily have had the two points for the win.

Winners for Stables B were Dee Blaney, Neil McConville, Paul McGahan and Sean Farren with Marty Murray, Andy McConnon, Paddy Magill and Terry Morrow replying for the INF.

Eire Og capitalised on their two main title rivals dropping points with a 5-3 victory over Derryhirk to move joint top and they host Drumgor this Thursday night which could well have a massive say on where the league title goes.

Stables A team had a 6-2 win over Clann Eireann.

On Saturday 42 players turned up for the second qualifying round of the Drumgor Open and it was Eddie Donnelly from Belfast who beat Raymie Williamson 4-3 in a tight final to take the second qualifying spot. Beaten semi-finalists were Marty Murray and Mick Millar.

The third qualifying event will take place on Saturday, February 11, at 2pm.
