London Darts Super League: Wood Green 4 Romford 3

Romford were narrowly defeated 4-3 at second-placed Wood Green in the London Super League.

Starting off for the visitors, Rob Donat (20.64) had the toughest draw of the night against PDC Tour player George Killington.

Donat did manage to take two legs, but was always chasing the game and was on the receiving end of the first of three ton-plus finishes on the night as matters concluded in the sixth leg.

John Costigan (26.57) produced his best display in a while, also going six legs in an even contest that saw him secure the equalising point.

The third game saw another real tussle with the two players combining for 21 tons and two maximums as they went the distance.

Although having the throw in the decider, Terry Goddard (25.04) could not finish the job, but showed what he is capable of.

Jason Geraghty (25.32) was making his debut for Romford, and also went the distance.

However, it was the home player who was unable to take advantage of throw in the final leg, as Geraghty got off the mark with a fine performance which included 12 tons and a superb 129 checkout.

Wood Green nudged back in front once again as John Loeber (23.69) was seen off in the sixth leg despite playing well.

Steve Woodside (23.50) was another player to require the full complement of legs, and got the all important break when it mattered, which meant everything came down to the final game of the night.

Stuart Patt was charged with the task of bringing home the spoils, but was on the back foot from the get-go.

The fifth leg of the contest saw the winning double for Wood Green in a fine advert for Super League darts.

Romford will want to finish the season on a positive note at home to Bermondsey on Monday night.

*London are back in action as they welcome Nottinghamshire in their penultimate BICC Division One fixture.

Their fine win at Surrey has almost assured safety, but a good performance will be sought following their subsequent defeat at Cornwall last time round.
