Tyne and Wear Ladies Super League Finals Night
Report and Results courtesy of Laura Patton.
The night started with the pairs semi finals, with Maureen Purvis and Jean Stanley of the Globe proving to be too strong for FCC (A)’s Tracey Curry and Pat Coulson, with Maureen and Jean reaching the final with a 3-0 win. In the other semi final Laura Patton and Cheryl Roper started strongly with a 3-0 victory over Annemarie Urwin and Debbie Waugh which set up an all Globe final.
In the final of the pairs competition it was a very close game, Maureen and Jean started stronger and were 2-0 ahead, Cheryl started the third leg strong and managed to get it back to 2-1, in the final leg with the score 3-3 it was Maureen and Jean who led the scoring, and then missing doubles which ultimately cost them, enabling Laura and Cheryl to catch up with some strong scoring and Cheryl taking double top out with her first opportunity to win the game 4-3.

The Voyager are the team knock out winners despite some close legs and some excellent darts thrown by both sides. Felling Cricket Club (A) took and early lead and went 1-0 up, Geri Maclennan’s high scoring kept the pressure on the Voyager, in the next few legs but Caroline Dorothy and Marie Seago’s clinical finishing along with some missed chances for FCC (A) meant that the Voyager ran out 3-1 winners.

The 3-a-side final was another close and well fought battle between Felling Cricket Club (B)’s Anne-Marie Urwin / Annmarie Potts / Debbie Waugh and Laura Patton / Maureen Purvis / Jean Stanley from the Globe. Although falling behind in the first few legs and being 3-1 down, excellent doubling from Jean Stanley ensured a spirited comeback and the Globe three, who were last years runners up regain their title with a 4-3 win.
