Fat Shaggy’s 9-5 over Shooters @ Shooters
The hosts completed their Autumn season with a defeat to ‘Runners-Up’ chasers FS. In a fairly even match up, Shooters could not match the finishing power of the visitors and came up short especially in singles play. The triples round was shared, and FS took the opening doubles round 2-1.
The tie of the singles round turned out to be the opening game between Dave and Eric. Both scored heavily and were quick to check - Dave also hit his first ever 180 in league play - as he chased down Eric looking for a vital win. Eric held firm with some quality darts to edge home 3-2. Bailey in the meantime had eased past Tom with a straightforward 3-0 win. Alan then stepped up to play Shea, and in another keenly contested game, Shea showed his quality with a 3-1 win. Jamie and Josh played out a real slog with Jamie coming from behind to steal it 3-2. The final two games went for FS with whitewash wins for Paul and Squancy.
With the score standing at 7-4 to FS, Shooters needed all remaining doubles to tie. They huffed and puffed in the initial two games but could only blow down one house with a 2-1 win for Hiro/KK whereas Bailey/Alan went down 2-1 to Shea/Eric. Paul/Cabby also took the final game 2-0 to cement their win. The win keeps FS in the hunt for 2nd place and they are currently tied with BNB and Saigon United on 19 points.

All square in this match up. Saigon actually raced into a 3-0 lead but back came MAS with 3 consecutive wins. Following this the match see-sawed between the teams right up to the final doubles seeing a tight victory for MAS to tie the match.

Saigon were now 6-5 up with the final doubles round to play. Mario/Rex took a vital opening game 2-0 against Kevin/Duy to tie things up once again. Back came Thoan/Dai with a 2-1 win against Allan/Ron to edge ahead again. The final game was tense and tight but finally Cris/Raymond took the winning double against Pawel/Khang to win 2-1 and see the match drawn at 7-7.
Khang smashed 10 tons for Saigon and Cris almost matched him with 8 for MAS. Rex and Allan topped the checks for MAS with 5 each - Saigon’s Dai replicated this with 5 of his own. Stats wise no one player really stood out, but Saigon’s Duy won 3 out of 4 and had stats of 7&3 to take the MOTM award.

Michael Mercado (14) and Bong (12) were responsible for pushing the 50 marks. PP fought hard however and hit 22 tons over the evening and took 2 singles victories through Joren and Antonio.
‘The Mercados’ both chalked up 3-0 wins in their singles while Adrian and Bong took much closer games, winning by the odd leg in 5. BNB also took all 3 of the final doubles round to take the game 11-3 and remain in 2nd place in the league. The final matches of the season will be crucial to name the runners-up spot and BNB travel to Saigon United, who themselves sit on the same points as BNB and Fat Shaggy’s. Game on!
