Aussie No.1’s take out West Coast Classic

Australian No.1 Anthony Fleet defeated fellow Australian Darts Team Representative Kyle Anderson in the final of the 2nd West Coast Classic played at the Lesmurdie Club in Perth. It was anticipated to be a very close hard fought match and it was between the two top seeds. “Fleety” who took the first initiative with some clinical pegging of 122 to take a set against the darts and eventually proved to be the telling point taking the match 5 – 2 averaging 28.95 to Kyle’s 27.89 in all there was not too much between these two great players.

Anthony Fleet and number 1 seed played very solidly all day and put it all together when required defeating Rob Modra in the semi final 4 sets to nil and averaging 29.03 to Rob’s 24.04 Rob just couldn’t buy a triple and the doubles just seemed to desert him at this stage. The other semi saw Kyle Anderson defeat Lindsay Haji Ali in the other semi 4 sets to nil.

In the women’s, the stage was set for great ladies final between the number 1 and 3 seed in Melbourne’s Carol Forwood and Sydney’s Corinne Hammond. Some tentative darts were thrown at first before Corinne Hammond found her range quickly defeating Carol 4 sets to nil. Corrine Hammond averaged 22.63 to Carol Forwood 20.52. The first semis were matched up as follows: Carol Forwood defeating Tasmanian Helen Johnston winning 3 sets to 1 while Corinne Hammond had victory over another Sydneysider in Lavinia Hogg with the same score line 3 sets to 1

The men’s doubles saw some fantastic darts thrown over the day. Laurie Loch and Andrew Townes from South Australia had played great together and finished the day winning the final 4 -2 over Perth’s David Platt and Jamie Bruce.

Local Perth players Kim Kelly and Stephanie Moriarty put together a strong performance to comfortably making the final. There they met the very experienced international combination of Dot McLeod and Louise Ball who proved to be too strong
