Two of the league bit hitters go toe to toe this week as the Ceili House look to catch up on their opponents and bounce back from last week and pull of a home win this week.

The match went back and forth all night with some brilliant darts from both times with three players hitting 180, three players checking out in less than 20 darts and three games going all the way to the fifth leg the singles could of went either way however with the match being so close it was only right the singles ended in a draw.
The doubles went the same way as the singles. There was still no separating the two sides as each game went to the third league and the match came down to the final game of the night. In the end there had to be only one winner and it was the undefeated Brackaville who claimed the win to move them to the top of the table for at least a week.

No room for error as the heats up. With only 5 points separating the top five teams it is all to play for. First and third in the league played this week as Fall’s played host to Daly’s B. Derrytresk and O’Neill’s A also needed to pick up wins to continue their push to the top of the league. Also there was a bottom half clash with the Central C and O’Neill’s B.
Fall’s 2-2 Daly’s B
This was a must win for both teams, a top of the table clash with only one point separating them both teams were looking to increase that gap. Daly’s A were out to make it four wins out of four and continue their dominance in the league. Fall’s wanted to make home advantage count and wanted to improve on their draw from last week.
The away side found their feet straight away as Micky Cartmill (3x100) picked up a 2-0 win in the first game. They increased the lead in the second game with Geoff Gillis (2x100,111) winning it 2-1. Into the third game and it was Dereck McGurgan (2x100,140) who won it 2-0 for Daly’s to increase the singles lead even more. Fall’s did hit back in the fourth game with Conor O’Hagan (2x100) winning 2-1. However that was not enough as Daly’s secured the singles points in game five with Audi Waugh (2x100) picking up a 2-1 win. The final game of singles was not played and will go down as a home win. Daly’s showed why they are top of the league as they wrapped up the singles in no time.
Into the doubles and Fall’s needed to hit back and that they did as C.Kennedy/S.Hagan picked up a 2-1 in the first doubles game. The home side then had secured their comeback as they wrapped up the doubles in the second game with R.Devlin/C.O’Hagan picking up a 2-0 win. The last of doubles was not played but it will go down as a home win. So with Fall’s winning the doubles the match ends in a draw.
Derrytresk 4-0 Clonoe B
This was a local derby in the hill as Derrytresk played host to their neighbours Clonoe. Derrytresk were just two points of the top of the league and a win to maintain that position. Clonoe needed to pick up a win to catch up on their opponents in the league.
The home side got out of the blocks early as Tyrone O’Hagan (2x100) picked up a 2-0 win in the first game. The lead was extended as Eamon Conlon (3x100) won 2-0 in the second game. Clonoe B did get rewarded for their efforts as Paul Coney (2x100) checked out 79 on his way to a 2-0win in the third game. Derrytresk quickly hit back and regained the two game lead with Brian Fitzgerald (2x100) winning 2-1 in the fourth game. The home side then secured the singles points with Alan Quinn (100) winning 2-0 in game five. Clonoe did restore some pride with Aidan Taggart winning 2-1 in the final singles game.
Clonoe retained that momentum as D.Doris/P.Coney picked up a 2-1 win the first game of the doubles. The doubles was then tied as T.O’Hagan/A.Quinn won 2-0 in the second game. The hosts then wrapped up the match win as E.Conlon/J.McKee won 2-1 in the final game of the doubles. That gave Derrytresk the match win and could put them back on top of the table.
O’Neill’s A 2-2 Central B
Another neighbourly rivalry as last year’s runner-up’s O’Neill’s were looking to maintain their form after picking up their first win last week. Their opponent was the Central B who were still look for their first win of the year.
The home side took the early lead as Stephen Magee (100) picked up a 2-1 in the first game. The Central bounced straight back with Sheila Hamill (125,100) winning 2-0 in game two. The side took the lead again as Aidan Donaghy (2x100,140) won 2-1 in third game. After that it was all one way traffic as the Central tied the singles with Plunkett Scullion winning 2-0 in the fourth game. The away side then took the lead with Gary Scullion (121) picking up a 2-1 before Brian Hamill (133,2x100) won 2-0 in the final singles game to secure the singles points for the Central B.
O’Neill’s got back into the thick of the action again in the doubles as A.Donaghy/P.Devlin secured a 2-0 win in the first doubles game. The home side had then secured the doubles points with S.Devlin/S.Magee winning 2-0 in the second game of doubles. The last game went down as a home win. This gave O’Neill’s the doubles points and ended the match in a draw.
Central C 3-1 O’Neill’s B
The Central C picked up their first win last week and were looking to maintain that momentum in their push to climb the table. As O’Neill’s B were looking to get a reward for their hard found efforts each week.
As singles got underway O’Neill’s B had a mountain to climb as they only showed with four players they were two games down before the start. However this was a challenge they were willing to accept as P.McGuigan (100,140) checked out 72 on his way to a 2-1 win in the first game. O’Neill’s B then tied the singles as John Maguire (100,140) picked up a 2-1 in the second game. Then in the third game it was Myles Hughes (100x2) who won 2-1 to give the away side the lead in the singles and guaranteed them a point. However their heroics ended their as P.Doris (2x100,140) won 2-0 in the fourth game to ensure the Central got a share of the spoils.
Just like the singles O’Neill’s had a mountain to climb again as they were already one game down in the doubles. However this prove a harder task for them as the home side partnership of J.O’Neill/P.Doris won 2-0 in the first game, before H.Dorman/K.Morgan picked up a 2-1 in the second game to secure the doubles and match win for the Central C.
