Counties Manukau 35 West City 13

Counties Manukau defeated West City Darts Association 35 to 13 in a North Island Challenge Shield match held at the Bellbird Tavern, Manuwera at 2 pm yesterday afternoon. After the pairs it was 25 to 7.
Players of the day for Counties were Deborah Pearson and Annie Sinclair. For West City Jeanette Scott and Emma Heavey. Jeanette Scott scored the only 180 of the day. Emma Heavey had a 104 finish. Maxine Taaka had a 101 finish. Ngapine Heke 106 finish.
Counties had a very experienced side many having been Auckland representatives. Probably the only centre that might be able to field a team to challenge them would be a team from the Wellington area. I do not think there are any other places that have enough depth of strong lady players to give a good contest.
Counties were Lorene Gilliam, Mata Tuao, Sandy Melgers, Tauturu John, Ruth Blackwell, Maxine Taaka, Rosa Broad, Deborah Pearson, Maria Siavale, Mata Atitoa, Annie Sinclair, Girl Kahaki, Malia Ioane, Rachel Phillips, Roz Pethyaridge and Leah Tekana.
West City were Peggy Wikaira, Symone Heke, Rita Wells, Rouru Douthett, Ngapine Heke, Aimee Holt, Jeanette Scott, Jennie Heavey, Colleen Curreen, Emma Heavey, Maine Ngametua, Ngauru Wikaira, Stacey Heavey, Tanya Wikaira, Lou Williams and Raewyn Heavey.
A wide range of ages was present. Two of the West City players Aimee Holt and Symone Heke being the youngest and aged only 13 whilst there were few older lady players in their 60's in both teams. Darts is a sport you can play at a top level at any age.
