SEMI FINAL 1.

This matched paired Gerard Holmes against Martin Mooney and these two threw great darts Gerard

won two games which included 24 and 18 darts (80 bull finish) but Martin threw sublime (20/15&20)

to edge the match 3-2

SEMI FINAL 2.

This was also a great game with both Ben Lagan and Peter McDonnell snr throwing great darts but it

was to be Ben (26/21&26) that beat Peter 3-1 and put himself into the final

THE FINAL.

The rooms in the Hibs club were packed and the two players Martin Mooney and Ben Lagan certainly

did not disappoint Martin took the first in the best of 7 final in 19 darts and repeated this in the

second leg with 19 darts again Ben took the next with a 20 darter of his own only for Martin to fire in

a 21 darter and make it 3-1 and the final was over when Martin won the fifth leg in 26 to take the

trophy
