The Cork Darts Orginisation Division 2 semifinals and final were played at the Local bar on Monday last. The semifinals saw the Glenryan (2) beat Glenryan (1) and the Joshua tree beat the Local. It was a close and tense final between the Josh and the Glenryan with the score at 2-2 after 4. Paul McGarry for the Glenryan was in to face Gordon O’Brien for the Josh to dispute the final game. O’Brien was quick off the blocks in the first leg, leaving himself on double 16 after 12 darts. But failing to hit the winning double after 6 attempts, McGarry was soon down to Top’s but narrowly missed as O’Brien checked out the first leg on double 1. McGarry brought the game back to par and a 3rd and deciding leg got underway. McGarry started with 100, 140 and 85 as O’Brien was close behind him with scores of 100, 100 and 121. And It was a battle for doubles at the end, with McGarry missing 2 match darts at double 10, and O’Brien checking out 68 to win the match, and the cup for the Josh.
The CDO Junior Division semifinals and final took place at the Riverlane, and it was the Gallows bar and the Muskerry arms that won their semifinals games against the Island tavern and Tower bar. The Gallows went on to beat the Muskerry arms 3-1 in the final.
