The National Deaf Darts Championship continued in Perth yesterday.   After the results from yesterday’s matches, the West Australia black team top the leader board, followed closely behind by West Australia gold team, with Victoria blue in third, South Australia in fourth, New South Wales in fifth and Victoria white last.



Team match play saw Victoria blue beat New South Wales 7 – 4, West Australia gold defeat South Australia 9 – 2 and West Australia black beat Victoria white 9 – 2. Craig Simms of West Australia gold had the high peg on the day for men with 64, while Katrina of West Australia gold had the high peg for the women with 40, an achievement she set twice.


On the first day of competition, Craig Simms also set the men’s high peg with 78 while Rosemary Johnson set the high peg for women with 53. That day saw South Australia defeat Victoria white 7 – 4, West Australia gold beat New South Wales 6 – 5, and West Australia black defeat Victoria blue 7 – 4.
