Peggy Wins Puma Open in Taupo

Peggy Wikaira defeated Wendy Harper in the 3 to 2 in the final of the Ladies King Country Puma Open held at the Taupo Cosmopolitan Club, Taupo yesterday. Peggy hit a 126 bull finish in the final. Wendy had done exactly the same when the pair played each other in qualifying and Wendy had won 3 to 2.
Play had been due to start at 11.30 am and the draw was all done for section play when it was realised that as only 10 ladies were entered under DPNZ rules if you have less than 16 players you have to have a round robin best of 5. The draw was done for a round robin and at the end of the round robin Wendy and Peggy were tied for first place on 8 wins each hence the play off to determine winner and runner-up. The game was played after the men's final at about 7 pm. Peggy had the most ladies 180's with 3.
Other than that hiccup with the draw and another when a man Giuseppe Gallina ( Joseph to most, from West City Darts Association) was accidentally put in the ladies draw everything ran smoothly.
We left home that morning from Auckland about 6 am and were home about 11 pm after a great day in beautiful Taupo.
