Peninsula Dart Line
By Glenn Campbell and Delynn Barton
Welcome to the third week of dart coverage. The competition was fast and frenzied, as the scores reflect. So far, reaction to this column has been positive. We need to hear more from all participating teams.
As captains organize their rosters and the sore arms and nervousness of the first few weeks subside, the rest of the season will be the tell tale sign. Outstanding achievements have already been recorded but, in our dart league, the best is yet to come.
There are a few changes to the league in regard to teams. High Tides Hammerheads have dropped out in the second division. They are replaced by Kellys’ Waterfront Rage. The Ebombs formerly of High Tides will now be playing out of the Raintower. The "no name, no bar" team has found a home. They will now be known as On The Waterfront Piranhas.
In Division One, The Blackwater Buckshots have a rescheduled game against Malone’s Hammers, as we were informed by Bill Hofmann. Raintower Lost and Found were defeated by the Grassy Point Rock Lobsters by a score of 14-5. Healy’s Havoc, scoring five points, was unable to keep up with The Catholic Club’s Altar Boys, who amassed 14 points. "Healy’s is impeaching Malloy as captain," exclaimed Bob "Shark" Gates.
In Division Two, Malone’s Lethal Weapons overpowered Knights of Columbus’ New World Order by a score of 15-4. The RBI’s Silly Boys, 11 points, were able to overpower Grassy Point’s Smoothies, eight points. Healy’s Pynns and Needles shot for 13 points to defeat The Catholic Club’s Sinners who amassed six points. Harbor Light’s Hyenas have a rescheduled game against the Kellys’ replacement team.
Moving right along to Division Three. The Blackwater Drive By Shooters defeated RBI’s Hitmen in the range of 11-8. Mr. Bowles, being coached by Sean O’Connor of the Shooters, stated "just tell me where to hit it," then proceeded to sink a double 14 to go out. RBI’s Caretakers buried the Grassy Point Beestingers by a score of 13-6. Also in Division Three, Curran’s Law and Disorder defeated the K. Of C. Blue Knights 11-8.
In Division Four, the Kerry Hill’s Insane Asylum defeated R.B.I.’s Rangers by a score of 11-8. On The Waterfront’s Piranhas were able to overpower the Raintower Yada Yadas by a score of 11-8. The RBI Freebirds, scoring 12 points, put up a good fight against the Kerry Hills’ Dan Paddy Andy’s, 8 points. Kellys’ Heros outshot Blackwater Lunachicks by a score of 12-7. Sean would like to ask Joanne, "Where is the Bushwackers plaque?" We would like to wish a Happy Birthday to Cathy Sieglakis and Billy, hopefully your arm feels well enough to shoot soon.
In closing, for those interested in participating next season; or if you're just wondering about the intricacies of the game, the action gets underway at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday nights in a local Rockaway drinking establishment near you. Come on in and say hello; See what the excitement is all about.
One final note, there is a benefit being held for one of fellow chuckers, Mike Nolan. It is taken place at the Knights of Columbus hall on Saturday, October 16 from 4-8 p.m. Donations are accepted and your presence would be greatly appreciated.
