DARTS: Unbeaten Poppies on cloud nine

IT’S now odds-on that Legion Poppies will pocket another HUCKNALL LADIES DARTS LEAGUE title after extending their 100% record this season to nine matches.

Poppies, who have dropped only 14 legs all season, head the table by four points from George Street and Foreign Legion.

They have also reached the semi-finals of the league’s Knockout Cup after defeating Royal British Legion 4-2 in the last eight.

Poppies are joined in the semis by Foreign Legion, who beat Masons Arms 4-1, Station Hotel (Hucknall) B, who knocked out bottom-of-the-table Empire 4-1, and George Street, who defeated Harrier 4-2.

On the individual front, the maximum 180s have been flowing this season, with the first coming from Sara Nuttall, of George Street. She was followed by Pauline Elkington, of Poppies, and Sheila Lowe for Foreign Legion.

The highest finish of the campaign so far has been thrown by George Street’s Sherrell Binch, who produced 104 in a match against Royal British Legion.
