WITH just a few games left and competition finals on the horizon, things are hotting up in the Penarth Darts League.

While champions in waiting Ex’s Sparrows have a comfortable 35-point cushion, second-placed Golden Lion (four games left) are just eight points clear of third-placed RAFA B (five games to play) so the runners-up spot looks likely to go right down to the wire.

Points so far this season:

P Pts

Ex’s 25 208

Lion 24 173

RAFA B 23 165

Coro 24 133

Keys 25 126

Station 24 119

RAFA A 24 109

Legion 24 108

Games for this Friday are: Legion v Coro; Ex’s v RAFA B; RAFA A v Lion; Station v Keys.

Qualifying for the 501 (best of three legs) singles was played this week and the quartet through to finals night are: Mitch Wainwright, Paul Wingren, Anthony Adams and Steve Turnbull.
