The RSL Outlaws held the Empire Pirates to ransom last Wednesday night claiming a 6-2 win in the A Grade darts grand final game.

The A Grade and B Grade grand final games were both played at the Cobar Bowling & Golf Club last week, and with teams finalists in both grades, the Empire Hotel was hoping for a double celebration.

The RSL Outlaws however had other ideas and they were in top form for the grand final game with four team members recording high scores to help their side to a relatively easy four games win.

Kyle Roberts had throws of 125, 100 and 100, Shane Haddy and Tony Brown recorded 100s and Don Roberts, with 140, all contributed to the team’s big victory.

Some of the Empire Pirates put up a fight, with Brian Sylvester (119) and George Greer (140) pulling out some big scores in the match before they, and the rest of their team, were eventually made to walk the plank.

After the Empire Hotel’s hopes were dashed in the A Grade match, it was up to their B Grade side, the Empire Barflies to bring home the bacon in B Grade. The game tunned out to be a much closer contest with Empire Barflies narrowly finishing as 6-4 winners over the Golfie Spearchuckers,

There were however no hundreds and high scores recorded in the match.

The highest score of the night was 140 thrown by A Grade players Don Roberts and George Greer.

Rodney Coleman had the Men’s Highest Peg Out of the evening with 59 and the Ladies Highest Peg Out of the matches was 2, thrown by Paige Coleman.
