Cody and Polly Win Auckland Open

Cody Harris defeated Sam Bryant in the final of the Auckland Men's singles earlier today at the West City Darts Association club rooms, 103 Glen Road, Ranui. It was a final between two friends. It was a final between two fellow association members both belonging to the Counties Manukau Darts Association. It was a final between two players who play in the Auckland Region team. It was a final between two team mates who play in the same Auckland Darts Association Saturday league team, Tupapa. I was a little bit under the weather ( 20 rums will do that) to give a good account of the final. All I can say was that Cody played better. He has been in a winning Auckland Region team more than once. He has won a NZDC pairs with Graham McElroy. He does not play DPNZ or Clubs NZ darts but he has a lot of potential and he  is young. I do not know what he will do with his darts but he has as much potential as anyone to excel. Well done to him and hard luck Sam. Third equal were Peter Hunt and Craig Caldwell. Fifth equal were Bill Fergus, Paul Earl, Rodney Moreland and Peter Page. 9th equal were John Hereora, Deon Toki, Laurie Turner, John Kelly, Steven Gooch, Frank Speight, Jai Monaghen and Shaun Duvall.
In the ladies final it was a lot closer. Jannette Jonathan and Polly Luke traded legs till was 4 all. All legs went with the first throw. The deciding leg did the same. Polly won the bull and went on to win 5 to 4. Good luck to Polly who flys to Darwin on Monday to play for NZ in the Asia Pacific cup. Third equal were Sonia Lewis and Jo Kinita. Fifth equal were Lorraine Pike, Ripeka Te Moananui, Anna Neho and Lorene Gilliam. 9th equal were Charlene Te Paki, Gayle Hapurona, Peggy Wikaira, Verena Cleaver, Malia Ioane, Nga Smyth, Kit Bennett and S'Vania Te Moananui.
