Gerald Griffin moved to the top of the Cork Darts Organisation Fosters sponsored first division section one league by two points after their 6-1 home victory over Baker Street on Monday night last.
Trevor Banks got the away side off to a great start with a 2-1 win over Jerry McCormack but it was all downhill after that only success for Baker Street as fine performances from Garry Murphy, Timmy Marshall, Dave Looney, Garry Dowling, John Marshall and Paul O’Neill saw them ease over the finishing line.
Quinlan’s were also in form on their own board, again in the first division section one for the visit of Hennessy’s as they put five past the Mayfield lads with wins coming from Denis O’Shea, Alan Murphy, Paul McKeon, Podge O’Brien and Tommy Healy while Tony Noonan and Ger Egan were winners for Hennessy’s.
Over in section two of the first division the local derby between the Gallows and Ma Dullea’s ended in a win for the Gallows who just edged out their neighbours on a 4-3 scoreline to stay top of their section.
Gallows who were playing with home advantage took the first two games through the good efforts of Ray Glynn and Aaron McGrath but Alan Ramsall and the evergreen John Lyons had this derby all square as the teams went into the break.
William Kennedy for the Gallows and Tom Falvey for Ma Dullea’s with a win each had the match all square with just the one to play and the seventh and final game fell to Gallows as Chris Musgrave took it 2-0 ahead of Paul McCarthy.
River Lane completed a 5-2 win over the Old Reliable as they came to visit the Blarney Street venue for their first division clash also in section two.
Alan O’Sullivan and Christy Coughlan gave the Shandon Street based side a 2-0 lead as they accounted for William O’Driscoll Jnr, and Mick Foley but then the remaining five games all went the way of the home side as James Dowdall, Pat Kieran, Noel Barry and William O’Driscoll Snr, all won.
