Counties 25 West City 25

Earlier today Counties Manukau Darts association drew with West City Darts association 25 all at the Bellbird Tavern, Manuwera in a NZDC North Island Shield Match. After the pairs it was 18 to 14 to Counties. In the singles West City fought back to make it 24 all.

This lead to two team games of 1001. It was Counties top 8 against West City's top 8 in one game and Counties lower 8 against West City's lower 8 in the other game. If Counties won one game that was enough to make a draw and retain the shield. If West City could win both games that was enough for a win and to take the shield.

In the top eight just as West City hit double 4 with the third dart to win Counties Rod Penney hit triple 1 and double one win to secure the draw in the lower 8.

A tremendous rivalry and spirit exist in both teams and all games were played in the best spirit. Counties Manukau keep the shield. This was the only challenge of the year. None have been lodged for 2012 yet but West City is sure to do so.

Counties were Cody Harris, Sonny Harris, John Sinclair, Tere Tou, Sam Bryant, Toko Hazel, Barry Kapa, Sonny Matekurae, Warren Nicholson, Willie Hopokingi, Tom Williams, Frank Speight, Andre Albertyn, Rod Penney, Jason George and Dean Cameron. West City were Wilson Henry, Tony Lee, Monty Tuhua, Mike Day, Peter Page, Geoff Koster, Ron Glavish, Steve Hanley, Marc Skinns, Stephen Holt, Brevis Herbert, Gordon Comrie, Gary Whyte, Dean Webster, Jimmy Hennah and Blair Neverman.
