The Swilly turned the screws tightly on their opponents when first Kevin O’Neill (2 - 1) 21 & 24 with fantastic throws of 180, 135, 132, 125, 96, 87, 86, 85, 85 beat Jimmy Lavery 29 100, 97, 95, 85, 85, 81, 77, 75 and then Mick Burns (2 - 0) 24 & 29 138, 86, 81, 79, 77, 76, 63, 63 threw great darts to put the home team on the brink of a marvellous result. St. Mathews were reeling and for the second week running they found themselves 4 vs 2 down. Con Keilty (2 - 1) 24 & 30 140, 100, 95, 85, 84, 79, 60, 60, 60 made it 4 vs 3 beating Tom Kearney 26 95, 89, 86, 83, 83, 80 but Tom’s son Tucker made amends with his second win from two games (2 - 0) 26 & 32 98, 96, 85, 85, 60, 60, 60 beating Mick McCartan 121, 100, 62 in the final game of the night to complete a fantastic win for them.
