Wilson Henry and Rogere Te Whero of the Glen Eden RSA won the Auckland Area mixed pairs at the Howick Club earlier today after defeating Gordon Comrie and Lou Williams of the Onehunga Working Mens Club in the final 4 to 1. The standard of darts in the final was not very high. Gordon and Lou won the first leg in 36 darts. Wilson and Rogere won the remaining legs in 44, 21, 26 and 27 darts. One feature was Wilson starting every time with a double by the first or second dart. There were 37 teams entered. It was a long day for the players because their were only 5 dart boards to play on. Play started at about 1.20 pm. The qualifying round never finished to 6. 40 pm. The final was finished at 9.30 pm. Gordon and Lou defeated Stephen Hanley and Jo Kinita of the West City Darts Association in their semi final 3 to 0. Wilson and Rogere had a closer semi-final against Tere Tou and Bubs Sylva of the Weymouth club winning 3 to 2. The highest finish was Bubs Sylva with 150.
