Peninsula Dart Line
By Glenn Campbell and Delynn Barton
Welcome to week two of the dart league. We have more news to present to you this week, thanks to Brian and Pattie, the league organizers.
A few of our fellow participants have asked "Where can I purchase dart supplies locally?" We have an answer. Supplies are available at the Blackwater Inn, which carries a full line of dart equipment. RBI’s and Malone’s of Howard Beach both have a nominal supply on hand for your needs. In addition, Jilly’s Sport Shop, located over the Gift Is Love, carries boards, darts, flights, and shafts.
The competition in week two made many of us realize this is not a walk in the park. With only four divisions the competition is fierce. We have the preliminary results prior to this press release.
In Division One, The Blackwater Buckshots defeated the Raintower Lost and Found by a score of 13-6. Healy’s Havoc, scoring six points, was unable to keep up with Curran’s Vagabonds, who amassed 13 points. Finally Malone’s Hammers overtook Grassy Point’s Rock Lobsters 10-9. Bill Hofmann of the Hammers explained to me, "They beat us in the championships, we won the rematch." Congratulations go out to Kenny Grey, who shot 180, and Mike Spitilieri, hitting an R9, for helping their respective teams.
In Division Two, Malone’s Lethal Weapons overpowered Grassy Point’s Smoothies by a score of 11-8. The RBI’s Silly Boys, six points, were unable to keep up with Knight’s of Columbus’ New World Order.
Moving right along to Division Three. The Catholic Club’s Choir Boys defeated the Blackwater’s Drive-by-Shooters in the range of 11-8. RBI’s Caretakers buried the K. Of C. Blue Knights by a score of 13-6. Keith Cervillo of the caretakers mentioned, "Caretakers swept K. of C., may they rest in peace." The RBI Hitmen amassed 11 points to outscore the High Tide’s Ebombs, who shot for 8 points. Also in Division Three, Curran’s Law and Disorder defeated the Grassy Point Beestingers 10-9. Kevin Timmons was able to amass 19 corks in a single cricket game. Nice shooting, Kevin.
In Division Four, the Blackwater Lunachicks defeated the Kerry Hill Dan Paddy Andys. The final score was unavailable. Kellys’ Waterfront was able to overpower the RBI Freebirds by a score of 11-8. The RBI Rangers, scoring three points, put up a fight against the RainTower Yada Yadas, 16 points. Congratulations go to Donna Long of the Lunachicks in hitting an R8. Very special congratulations go to Bill Pricchard of The Yada Yadas who went three wins and zero losses after being out last season due to back surgery. Way to make a statement, Bill. You do us all proud.
