THERE was no love lost between the Middletons as son Jamie defeated dad Steve to take the Bognor Tuesday Double In Double Out third division singles crown.
The pair were among 52 players to step up to the oche for the annual contest at the Newtown Social Club.
The Middletons, who are both members of the Newtown C side, split the first two legs of the final. In the decider, it was the younger of the two who scored better.
With a finish of 16 left and his father breathing down his neck, he hit double 8 with his last dart, to take the win, and the Division 3 Singles champion title.
The Division Two final saw Division 2 Summer League singles champion Keith Robinson (Chi Snooker Club) take on Graeme Dutton (BRSA Ravens).
Dutton performed well but the scoring firepower of Robinson was too much him. The Chi Snooker Club player rounded off the win with an out shot of 94, hitting single 18, treble 12, and double top to take the leg in 21 darts.
Division One saw 26 players whittled down to leave Gary Blackwood (The Legends) and Ricky Clark (Newtown Amity) to play the final.
After splitting the first two legs, Blackwood forged ahead in the decider with two 140s and 96. But The Legends’ player fell short on his doubles.
After Clark gave him a chance, Blackwood eventually hit the double, taking the leg in 16 darts for the Division One title.
