Darts

Gary Blackwood dazzled with his darts once again as he managed the maximum 170 in-shot during his week nine match of the Tuesday Double-In Double-Out Darts League.

But Blackwood’s amazing arrows — 23 and 23 darts [23.23 average], first leg 16 left in 18 darts — couldn’t help his Legends side as they lost 12-10 to QE2.

The week before, however, his ability from the oche proved to play a big part in a Legends’ 16-7 victory over Friary Arms.

Here, we’ve rounded up all the results from two weeks of action and tagged on the results from the Friday Benevolent Darts league.

Week eight best game: Gary Blackwood (the Legends) 17 & 27 darts [22.77 average], Andy Whiteley (the Legends) 20 & 24 darts [22.77 average], Gary English (Cabin Cruisers) 21 & 23 darts [22.77 average].
