The line-up has now been completed for the penultimate night of the Cork Darts Organisation Fosters sponsored super league to be played on Monday night at the Groves on Dublin Street Blackpool from 8.30pm.
Last Monday nights quarterfinals almost produced a surprise winner as the Maple Leaf came out in their quarterfinal against the Joshua Tree with all guns blazing and were full value for their 3-1 lead at the break.
Unfortunately for the Maple Leaf matters went array in the remaining three rubbers as they succumbed to the more experienced Blarney Street side by 4-3, but they will certainly rue this opportunity of a major scalp passing them bye.
Another close encounter was played out in the other quarterfinal between defending champions the Harp and Hennessy’s before the holders went through by 4-2 after the first four games on the card were shared between the sides.
The semifinal action will commence Monday night at the Groves with both semifinals timed for an 8.45pm start with the final to follow.
