QE2 pair sink rivals in summer’s finals

The BOGNOR Friday Summer Darts League was rounded off in style as the last tournament of the season saw two players from QE2 in The Steyne cruise to victory in the Blind Trebles Knockout.


A record number of 87 players took part in the tournament, which sees players from rival teams put together into scratch teams.


After some fierce darts, the final came down to Mark H Todd (BRSA Ravens), Stuart Gray (QE2 Galleon) & Gary Blackwood (BRSA Wanderers) against Ian Dendy (QE2 Galleon), Richard Ragless (Squash Club) & Paul Bizzell (QE2 Galleon).


The final saw Blackwood beat Ragless with the bullseye, giving his team the first throw.


They kept the lead all the way to the double, but misses at the doubles allowed Dendy, Ragless & Bizzell to catch up, with Bizzell hitting the double for the first leg.


The second leg saw a slow but steady start from Dendy, Ragless & Bizzell, while Blackwood started with 125.


This still left them behind. But with a 140 from Ragless to leave 16, Dendy only needed one dart to hit double 8, taking the leg, and the win, making himself, Ragless and Bizzell this years Blind Trebles Champions, and taking home £216 between them.


The evening also saw the presentation of the trophies for the competition held during the summer.


The final league positions were:


DIVISION 1 – overall winners – Friary ‘Z’; overall runners-up – BRSA Wanderers; singles winners – Friary ‘Z’; pairs winners – Friary ‘Z’; trebles winners – BRSA Wanderers
