Round 5 of the Wellington Soldiers Memorial Club darts competition was played last Sunday with a small field of dart players on hand to play, maybe this week there will be an increase with names to be in by midday.

Round 5 winner was Carl Ludwig again and he now has a big lead over the field, but remember its the top 8 that play off for the prize. Didn't forget you Richard Kent as he hit the 2nd 180 of the competition.

Point score top 8 after 5 rounds see's Carl Ludwig on 29 pts, Eugene Spicer 18pts, David Wilson 18pts, Jason Robbins 8pts, Kevin Baker 7pts,Wendy Wilson 7pts, Kirsty Watts 5pts. High scores were.Richard Kent 180, 124, 6x100, Carl Ludwig 3x140, 125, 10x100, Kevin Baker 133, 121, 100, Eugene Spicer 132, 121, 109, 4x100, Tenna Hill 105, 2x100. Men’s went to Richard Kent with 75.

Come along and play this week as I keep saying there are still plenty of weeks to make the top 8, so hopefully we will see an influx of darters this Sunday.
