Well, played my 2nd ever League Match tonight against the team closest to us at the top of the League.
I had a Doubles and I was thrown in at the deep end with a singles.
The first doubles came up and there were tons flying all over the place, even a 180 and I thought "f**k" !!!!!!!!!!!
Anyway, I was up next in the 2nd doubles and what a shocker, the best score of the leg was 1 solitary ton which was mine. The average was probably about 50 between both teams and I was left 82 whilst the other team was still on 293.
I went the Bull route and hit the outer bull, single 17 and had a bounce out at the double top!! Me and my partner then took a further 12 darts at the double from here for them to then finish out 1 shot at the double!!!
It was a very close match and I was the penultimate singles, praying that it wouldn't be down to me for the important leg. It came to my singles and we were 5-4 up, with me and 1 other to go!!
I was very nervous and started with an outstanding 9. Followed this with an honest "60". The other guy then threw, wait for it ................. s20, d18, t14!! What the .................
I think this was what I needed to get me going, next throw 81, next = 140, next 66, next 66 and so on and so. Suddenly I was left with 122 and scored a 74 to leave myself 48.
He was still back on 202, I steadied myself and just missed T16 (I know, close one!! ) but hit the single, wired the D16 and hit another S16.
Here I was heart pumping, pressure mounting, 1 dart on D8. I stepped back, took a deep breath and planted it right smack bang in the middle of the D8 to take the deciding leg!!!
To say I was ecstatic is an understatement!!!
Phew, still coming down from it now.
