The final night of competition within the CDO takes place on tonight Monday June 20th, with the semifinals and final of the three cup competitions: the CDO challenge cup (FA cup of darts as it was affectionately known) the secondary competition which is the CDO trophy and also we have the semifinals and final of the CDO KO cup.
The challenge cup has brought up a couple of surprises in the semifinals but such is the beauty of the lightning fast 301 double-off game and with all due respect regardless of how a team wins the object of participating is to enjoy but, also to win.
I’m going to put my neck on the block here for tonight and pick a TOTH V Quinlans final with the TOTH to just about squeeze it.
The same type of game format is played in the CDO challenge trophy and just looking at various games played across the divisions during the season the the remaining four teams Muskerry Arms, Ma Dulleas 1, Hanna Bawns and the Tower Bar have all been relatively successful in their respective divisions and in particular Ma Dulleas have been quite successful.
However I am going for a Ma Dulleas Hanna Bawns final with the Tower Street venue to take the honours in a close fought encounter.
The Groves bar in Dublin Street Blackpool will stage the semifinals and final of the CDO KO cup and with just the one leg of darts to be played by each player this format may cause nightmares for some players.
However here we go, and I have it for the Riverstown Inn to get past the Joshua Tree and the Gallows to clip the wings of the Glenryan Tavern in their semifinals match-ups with the Gallows to emerge as winners in their final against the Riverstown Inn, JUST.
