Red Dragon London Masters
Red Dragon London Masters – 21st November, 2009
Players from many counties came together at The Tithe Farm Sports and Social Club to battle it out at the 1st Red Dragon London Masters Darts Tournament... Hertfordshire, London, Middlesex and Surrey’s top county players mixed it with local league players to see who could take the £400 first prize.
180’s and high finishes were the order of the day as the games unfolded in a fabulous atmosphere of fun and high competition.
Glasses were raised to our four semi-finalists who put on a magnificent show of marksmanship. Both semis went the full distance with London’s Jamie Freeman and Middlesex’s Ben Stevenson eventually winning through to play in a spectacular final.
The best of nine legs final produced lots of thrills as London’s finest Jamie Freeman stormed into an early 4-2 lead. Middlesex star Ben Stevenson, however, was not perturbed as he bravely fought back to level the game 4-4. Nerves began to show as in the final leg both players missed vital doubles to clinch the match in a nail-biting finish. However, Ben managed to compose himself and hit double two to win the match and more importantly the £400 first prize.
Jamie consoled himself with the runner-up prize of £200. Losing semi-finalists won £100 each whilst losing quarter-finalists pocketed £50 each. The prize of £50 for the furthest lady was awarded to Louise Bell who played magnificently all night.
All in all, a fantastic days darts at a fantastic venue.
