The qualifying series of matches in the Cork Darts Organisation Fosters sponsored super division has been concluded and the quarterfinals of that competition will be played on Monday night at the Groves on Dublin Street Blackpool.
The Tower Bar topped the qualifying group by just a single point from the Groves who finished with 36 points despite they getting the better of the Tower in their final game on Monday night last with a 4-3 success.
Joshua Tree, Hennessy’s, Harp and Maple Leaf all qualified for the quarterfinals, with the Joshua Tree booking their quarterfinal place in a 4-3 final game win against the Harp who also did enough to qualify, while Hennessy’s also won with a 4-3 win at home against the Top of the Hill with the last qualifying place going to the Maple Leaf despite they going down by 5-2 away to the Joshua Tree 2.
The quarterfinal line up at the Groves on Monday night is as follows: Joshua Tree v Maple leaf and Hennessy’s v Harp with both games timed for a 9.45pm start.
Tonight will see the final series of games in the remaining three Fosters sponsored league being played and the knockout games in all will be played on Monday night next December 4.
Section one of division 1 has the Gallows out in front on 42 points just the one point ahead of the Gerald Griffin who went down heavily to the Bandon Road team by 5-2 on Monday night last on their own board.
Quinlan’s are on 35 and they will be hoping to claim the third qualifying place but they have a very tough assignment away to the Gallows while waiting on for any slip up are Hennessy’s who have amassed 28 points.
Section 2 of the first division would seem to be sorted with Riverstown Inn heading the table and qualifying for the quarterfinals will be Baker Street and River Lane.
Ma Dullea’s have clinched their semifinal place in the first section of the second division and the two quarterfinal places here should go to the Glenryan and possibly the Old Reliable who must first steal in and win 3 points from their encounter away to the Local who certainly will remain defiant to the end.
Cow are through to the knockout stages in the first section of the second division, but have they enough points on board with 33 and their programme finished to claim a semifinal place or will they be outpointed in the final straight on Monday night, I don’t think so as their nearest challengers are meeting Monday night with the Residence on 24 at home to the Red Cove on 28.
Delegate meeting Tuesday night at Residence.
