THE QEII trio of Wayne Wadsworth, Cliff Prior & Richard Ragless cruised to victory in the Divisional Trebles knockouts of the Bognor Tuesday Double In Double Out league.
A total of 22 teams took part in the contest, which was full of competitive Christmas cheer. After overcoming Micky Rowland, Andy Whiteley & Dave Juniper (The Legends) in the semi, the QEII trio were pitched against Gary Blackwood, Darren Rich & Ben Marley (The Legends) in the final.
After going into a 2-1 lead, the fourth leg saw a 105 in-shot from Ragless, followed by a ton and 123, while Prior also hit a ton.
The Legends trio also hit some good scores, but it was the QEII trio who reached the double first. Ragless took all three darts to hit double 7 for the leg and the 3-1 win to take the Division 1 Trebles title for QEII, pictured top right. In division two, the final was contested between Rob Palmer, Gary English & Andy Cooper (Cabin Cruisers) and Keith Robinson, Alex Norgett & Lee Hellyer (Chi Snooker Club).
The Cruisers, pictured bottom right, sailed into a 2-1 lead. Then, in leg four, the Chi Snooker team didn’t hit a score under 60, with a ton from Norgett, and a ton & 140 from Robinson.
But they missed double top and then double 10 to win the leg, giving Palmer & English, who also hit tons, a chance. With 55 left, English hit the double, to take the game 3-1, and the Division 2 Trebles title.
