Tony and John Win Swanson Pairs

Tony Lee and John Kelly defeated Richard Te Whero and Monty Tuhua 4 to 2 in the final of the Swanson RSA Open Pairs. Richard and Monty won the first leg in 21 darts with Richard finishing on 64. Tony and John came back winning the next three legs in 17, 24 and 23 darts. Richard and Monty then hit an 18 darter. Tony and John finished the final leg in 23 darts. Tony and John's average was 68.97. Richard and Monty's 72.6. The difference in average is due to the fact Richard and Monty only threw 120 darts over the match whilst Tony and John threw 126. They had 6 extra darts because it was a competition where you threw for the bull after each leg to see who would throw first in the next. Tony won the bull 4 times and Richard twice. The game was that close that if Richard had been closer to the bull on more occasions the result could have been reversed. It was a fruitful day for Tony and John having travelled up from Papamoa and Tauranga respectively. Third equal were Ken Moir with Greg West and Mike Collett with Tere Tou. There were 38 entries and 21 qualifiers. Lou Underwood and Dave Ellis defeated Ngapine Heke and Colleen Cureen to win the consolation round. The highest ladies finish was 97 to Ngapine Heke.The highest men's finish was 120 by John Sinclair, Peter Page and Brendon Deed. Most 180's was John Sinclair (4) and Ken Moir (4). The furtherest ladies pairs were Lou Williams and Sandra Mathews who made the last eight of the main round. The draw was organised by Girl Kahaki who as usual did a great job with assistance of others.
