Mitre suffer heaviest home defeat of the season against champions elect

img_0117Anfield pub the Claremont inflicted a second 8-1 defeat on Ship and Mitre B this season following victory on Monday.

They played some blistering darts in a game that lasted just 45 minutes.

Robbie Ward got the ball rolling for them by defeating Steve Dobby. A 134 set him on his way and he was able to complete the leg on D16.

Hywel Jones was up next for Mitre and he could do little to stop the momentum as he came up against Mark McEvoy. Failure to get off with his first three darts cost the Welshman as McEvoy was able to work his way down to a double and he was able to go out on tops.

Then in what was the longest leg of the match, Liam Nelson came out victorious against Ian Martin. Martin missed nine darts at his starting double and it cost him dearly as Nelson had got down to a double, but had to be content with taking out 15, which he did.

It was soon looking very bleak for B as Ged Lofthouse lost against Steve Hall. Lofthouse scored well but Hall got down to the double first which gave him the advantage, although he did end up taking it in the madhouse.

The win was then confirmed for the current league leaders as Liam Allen got the better of Chris Ruddy. Although Allen took six darts to hit a double, he was soon scoring consistently and heavily, and ended up taking out 62, although Ruddy will not be happy having had darts to win it.

Just as the whitewash was beginning to look a real possibility, Mitre pulled one back through Rob Warbrick. His consistent scoring managed to get him over the line against Paddy Newport- who missed 12 darts at double to start. Warbrick ended up winning on D4.

It was then the turn of the skipper Peter Mylchreest, who was up against Paul Azzopardi. Both players started slowly, taking three darts to start but then what followed was an all out slug fest which ended with Azzopardi taking out 74.

With no more players left to field, Mitre surrendered the final two games, meaning they suffered an 8-1 defeat for the third time this season, following from the Village Inn in January, and against Claremont in September.

There is now a week off for both teams while the individual tournament is played with skipper Mylchreest in action at the Oak Tree. The team is back in action the following week when they welcome Queen of Martyrs to Dale Street.
