KALKARA ST JOSEPH RETAIN NATIONAL TITLE

Kalkara St Joseph edged out Floriana Ajax A in a thrilling match to retain the darts title and deny the Greens a clean sweep of all the national team honours.

Before the start of play Kalkara held a two-point lead over Floriana, therefore a draw would be sufficient to lift the title for the second consecutive year and they started on the right foot with Martin Azzopardi winning the opening game.

An immediate reaction from Floriana as they reversed the score in their favour with wins coming from Norbert Attard and John Ciantar.

Andy Keen and Gordon Stanmore levelled the score again in the fourth with David Attard giving Floriana the lead again in the fifth.

The next two game followed suit with Gordon Stanmore making the score 3-3 and Vincent Busuttil giving the greens a one game lead.

The winner of the 8th and final game would determine the destination of the title with Vincent Busutill & John Ciantar lined up for Floriana and Chris Cohen & Martin Azzopardi for Kalkara.

With the game score tied at 2-2, Martin Azzopardi checked out double 5 which sent Kalkara players, delegates and fans into raptures of joy as they retained a hard-fought title.

At the other end of the table, Gudja POs Bar A came out on top in a must win direct relegation match against Bormla Bocci Club which condemned the blues into playing in Division two next season.
