City Of Sails 9 West City 5

The City of Sails defeated West City Darts Association 9 to 5 earlier today in a Renee Stacey Shield Challenge held at West City Darts association club rooms. It was 1 all after the 4's. Then 4 to 2 in favour of West City after the pairs. Then City of Sails won 7 of the 8 singles. It was not because they played that well it was that West City played so badly with the exception of West City's Ron Glavish and Blair Neverman.
Nine players had 100+ starts with Steve Hanley having the most with 2. There were three 100+ finishes. Wilson Henry 107, Leo Cantell 120 and Monty Tuhua 107. Monty did it an unusual way first hitting bull, then 17 and double tops.
180's were scored by Ron Glavish, Steve Goldsmith and Leo Cantell. Wilson Henry scored a 177.
The next challenge for City of Sails will be Counties-Manukau in February.
West City were Monty Tuhua, Wilson Henry, Ron Glavish, Steve Hanley, Brevis Herbert, Blair Neverman, Dean Webster and Marc Skinns. City of Sails were Brendon Deed, Nic Jatlov, Gary Whyte, Terry Constable, Steve Goldsmith, Steve Yost, Lou Underwood and Leo Cantell. Players of the day were Blair Neverman and Terry Constable.
Brendon Deed, one of the better dart players in the Auckland area offers the following dart tip " Learn to cope with nerves in games by playing sober and not by drinking. Because the game is hand and eye coordination if you can do that you will have the secret to good play". Brendon tells me whilst playing he may only have one bottle of beer and waits to the games are finished before drinking more. I asked him how long it had taken him to learn this. His reply " 30 years".
