Darts: Bridgwater men^s darts round-up

There was no real change in the Division One title race in the Bridgwater and District Men’s Darts League after last week’s games, with the top two both winning.

The Hope Inn’s Clive Royce threw a 14-dart leg that included a 180 as his team beat OVH Wanderers 6-3 to remain two points behind the leaders. Pete Wright hit a 180 for the OVH.

British Flag were 6-3 winners over the Blake Riversiders.

Flag’s Dave Taylor hit a 160 away while Tom Gill replied with a 180 for the Blake.

The Jokers beat the Malt Shovel 6-3 – a result that means the Malt are just one loss away from relegation.

The Buccaneers are now just one win away from the Division Two title after they beatr nearest rivals Railway B 7-2 with the aid of a Kalib Bowers 152 away.

The result leaves them eight points clear with just four rounds of matches left to play.
