Project Darts - Super Daffs Takes SFL Singles Championship

It was some competition that had seen Panthers Star Peter Daffin into the last four along with Former world champion John Walton, PDC and Yorkshire star Trevor Burkhill both from the Black Eagles and the man of the season Mick Swift who has transformed the Vulcans and risen them from the Ashes. All four men had battled into the semi finals with some decisive performances seeing off John Lieber, Micky Stocks and Mick Hulley and also the reigning champion Ryan Goffin in the last 8.Mick Swift was first up against Pete Daffin and hitting a 15 dart leg and a selection of 100+ shots he raced into a 3-1 lead and looking like he and his team have done all season and do it against the odds and although Mick never let up Super Daffs Pete Daffin came back with 3x16 legs to edge passed Mick Swift to make his first SFL singles final. The other semi final was amazing and had everything with ton plus out shots 4 180s between them which saw John race into a 2-0 lead before Trevor came back at him to level the game with a 12 dart leg and miss a chance to go 3-2 up before John went ahead again and then rattled in a 12 dart leg with the arrows and record a 109 average with Trev not too shabby in the 90s and to set up a mouth watering final between two of the best players the region has ever produced. Pete won the arrows and basically kept strong on throw all the way while John beat the treble 20 bed into submission hitting 5x180s in the final including a 12 to level the game at 4-4.In the last leg John forged ahead with another maximum and was left sitting on a double with Pete trailing but then took out a sweet three dart finish on the bull to take the Singles championship for the Wolves. It was arguably as good as any singles competition seen to date. Brilliant and entertaining. 2017/2018 season Premier League was once again won by the Woodbourne Black Eagles but it was much tighter than last year as runners up Station Railwaymen took it too the last week of the season and the battle for 2nd place was close too as the Aces fought hard for the top spot in an exciting four way battle all season as the Wades also played a big part in matters setting an early pace only to just fall off at the end and be pipped for fourth by the resurrection of the Wolves side. Hawks in there first season played well to take 7th spot but close up and also last seasons 3rd place team Panthers holding well in 6th.Academicals played another solid season clear in 8th from the Pirates a new side that played well and held there own. The Vulcans came good towards the end after an appalling start but came strong at the half way point and last but certainly not least the ever popular Midland Warriors who did actually top the table at one point during the season and finished it with credit giving quite a few sides a big scare. The team knockout was won by the Black Eagles but was pushed in the final by the Wades with missed doubles only preventing a 3-3 and the Black eagles found themselves fortunate to be in the final after narrows wins in the last 8 and semi finals. Team plate was won by the Aces who proved too strong for all team and beat Hawks in the final.
