The NSW and Qld events ran over the 18th and 19th of May. At the Mount Pritchard Club Scott Johnson returned to success with a win over Mark Lennard in the final of the first competition (5 legs to 4) before Kerry Allen took out the evening’s event with a 5-2 win over Luke Wilson. Sunday saw the two winners from the previous day face off in the first final with Allen taking the win over Johnson by five legs to two. In the fourth event the two most consistent players of the weekend took on each other again and it was Allen who took the win over Johnson again, this time 5-3.
At the Mollymook Beach Bowling club Many Kato defeated Mat Goozeff 5-0 in the first final of the weekend before Russell Northey finished the Saturday night by whitewashing Dave Boyle in the final of the second event. The next day, as at Mount Pritchard, the two winners from the Saturday played out the final of the third event with Northey taking it out in a final leg decider, 5-4, over Kato. Kato was not done for the weekend though and defeated Danny Watson 5-4 in the final event of the weekend.
At the Young Services Club it was no surprise to see both Josh Townsend, fresh off success at the pro tour level in Dubbo, take on Greg L’Estrange. Townsend got the best of his opponent and won 4-3 in the final. The two players were back at it again in the Final later that evening with Townsend winning a final leg decider for the second time in the day (this time winning 5-4.) On the Sunday morning Adam Faulkner broke the dominance of the same two players in the final by defeating Josh Townsend 4-2 in the semi final only to fall to L’Estrange in the final (4-2, including a 12 dart leg from L’Estrange.) Replicating the day before the Final was a copy of earlier in the day in terms of the result, although the scoreline read L’Estrange 4 Faulkner 1 this time. (Townsend lost to L’Estrange in the semifinal this time around.)
Meanwhile in Queensland at the Pine River Darts Club players bucked the trend of the same players making the finals all weekend. In the first event Michael Ruthenberg won his maiden event of the tour with a 5-3 win over Tony Davy. In the second event of the Saturday Jimmy Raroa took out a final leg decider to defeat Jackson Davies 5-4. The next day Mark Dutton beat Andrew Brown 5-2 to be crowned the third separate winner of the weekend (in fact there were twelve different semi finalists in the first three events.) On Sunday afternoon Andrew Brown was the first player to make a second final on the weekend but he was unable to change his runners up position, this time losing 5-1 to Dave Evans in the final (and thus crown four different winners over the four events on the weekend.)
Last weekend the Tasmanian challenge tour got underway with John Riley winning the first event by defeating Braydon Abbott in the final 5-3. That night Riley made the final once more but lost to Nathan Seabourne 5-2. Seabourne would add to this success on Day 2 with wins over Matt Woodberry (5-0) and Riley once more (6-4) to come away from the weekend leading the competition with Riley one place behind him. Weekend 2 of this event is May 25th and 26th at the East Devonport Recreation Centre.
In Victoria their tour continued at the MDDA centre it was Tyler Fitch doubling up on the Sunday with wins in each final, both over Brandon Weening (5-2 and 5-3.) The previous day Weening had made another final but in that he had met Brody Klinge who continued his good form across this tournament by winning another final, this time 5-1. That night Klinge made the final once more but came up one leg short of a perfect day with a 5-4 loss to Aaron Bradley.

Day Four of the Harrows DPA Pro Tour Dubbo events saw the competition move back to a round robin format at the ALH Macquarie Inn. The final eight had a couple of surprise entrants but the first should not have come as a shock to those who have followed the challenge tour. Josh Townsend has been making his mark in that tournament not too far away from Dubbo in Young and he defeated Michael Cassar and James Bailey to make the top eight. In that quarter final he played Ryan Lynch, who had played so well through the week. Townsend got through in another deciding leg after being down four legs to two.
Dale Burton-Pye caused a huge upset by knocking out Damon Heta in the round of 16 (having already seen off Greg Major) by five legs to three. In the quarter finals he met Haupai Puha but unlike Townsend this was one step too far as the Kiwi won 5-1.
In the other quarter finals Koha Kokiri and Steve Fitzpatrick repeated the final of the night before with a similar result. Fitzpatrick won the first game but then Kokiri, of team Kiwi (DPA and DPNZ), rattled off four straight games and the gap was too great for his opponent to close and Kokiri went through to the semi finals, winning five legs to three. In the other semi final Mick Lacey, who had enjoyed so much success in Tasmania, defeated Brendon McCausland 5-2, both players having left their most success in Dubbo to the final event of the week.
The first semi final saw Puha take a strong early lead over Townsend of 3-0. He broke Townsend in the second leg and in the third, with Townsend needing 48, he hit Shanghai to hold throw. Townsend held his throw in the fourth leg, and Puha did the same in the fifth to move a leg away from the match. In what would be the final leg Puha missed the bull for a 164 check out but Townsend was unable to convert 68 and Puha put the 25 away for a 5-1 win.
The second semi final saw Lacey go to an early two leg lead before Kokiri did what he had in his previous match, and win four games in succession. He broke Lacey in the fourth and sixth leg to go 4-2 up only to have Lacey break him for the second time in the match (after doing so previously in leg one) in the seventh leg. However, with Lacey needing 32, Kokiri was able to put 48 away to make his second final in succession.
The Final was a tight affair although early it looked like Puha could run away with it. The first leg saw Kokiri miss has chance to hold throw and Puha pounced on his next visit to take an early lead. He consolidated this in the second leg thanks to a 16 dart leg and two successive visits scoring 130 or over. A tight leg three saw Kokiri hold throw before he took the break back from his team Kiwi (DPA and DPNZ) colleague. 15 darts from Kokiri was enough in leg five to take the lead for the first time (he converted 83 with his opponent needing just 41 so the pressure was ever present.) Puha then demonstrated his class with a 12 dart leg where he averaged 125.3 across the leg, including a 140 finish.
At 3-3 something had to give and it was Kokiri as Puha followed up leg six with another confident throwing display and broke his opponent once more. He then held throw in 15 darts to take a two leg lead. Kokiri held his nerve in the next leg to reduce the deficit to one leg but it left him needing to break Puha in the next leg to take the match to a decider. Both players opened with 81 visits but a 140 turn on the oche for Puha gave him the impetus in the leg and he checked out the required 40 to win the match and event 18 of the Harrows DPA Pro Tour.

Day Three of the Harrows DPA Pro Tour event at the ALH Macquarie Inn Dubbo held two further straight knockout events.
Event 17 saw Steve Fitzpatrick do a job on Ben Robb jumping ahead 5-1 before taking the match 6-2 whilst Damon Heta won his match 6-0 for the second game in a row (having won his first match 6-1.) The other quarter finals were also one sided affairs with James Bailey and Koha Kohiri beating Dave Marland (6-2 – with a 138 final check out) and Dave LIttleboy (6-1) respectively.
In the first semi final the match was level after two legs. A check out of 111 with his opponent on 87 saw Heta return to the lead after three legs. Fitzpatrick then hit a 14 dart leg to take the match back to parity after four. Heta then took three games in a row, including breaking Fitzpatricks’s throw in the second of those games. Heta then had a shot at the match but missed and his opponent secured the leg with his next but one dart. In the next leg Heta missed match darts and saw the Team Rebel man win against the throw. Fitzpatrick then threw a 146 to go to a deciding leg against his Team Misfits opponent. He then broke the throw of Heta with 17 darts to take the match 6-5.
In the other semi final Koha Kokiri won the first leg before breaking the James Bailey throw to go two up. Bailey then broke the Kokiri throw to get back into the match and then, despite his opponent having a shot at the leg, held throw. Both players then held throw to move the match to 3-3. Kokiri then held throw and broke his Team KIWI DPA DPNZ team mate’s throw to lead 5-3. Bailey then missed three check out darts in the next leg and watched as Kokiri took full advantage to win 6-3.
The Final of event 17 saw Team Kiwi DPA/DPNZ’s Koha Kohiri take on Team Rebel’s Steve Fitzpatrick.
Kokiri won the throw for the first leg and it was he who had first shot at the leg, leaving 32. With his opponent failing to convert 141 he was able to take the leg with his next dart. A 137 in the next leg saw Kohiri leave himself 50 and Fitzpatrick had to chase an unlikely 152 for the leg. He failed to do so and Kohiri had a 2-0 lead after two more darts.
After five visits in the next leg each player had scored 100 or over (and the sixth was a 97 from Fitzpatrick to leave 170). Both players then missed leg darts with Fitzpatrick scoring 25 in two darts to break his opponent. A 139 start was followed up by a maximum and then a 140 from the Tasmanian (Kohiri had also had three ton plus visits.) In 11 darts Fitzpatrick had tied the match back up after four legs.
Kohiri was unable to hit a 170 finish in the next leg but was far enough ahead to get it on the next visit anyway. Fitzpatrick was unable to convert 70 on his own throw and watched as Kohiri put away tops to take a 4-2 lead. Kokiri attemped to check out 136 on the next leg with his opponent standing behind him on 110. Both players failed to check those totals out and it was left to Kohiri to convert on his next visit and move within a leg of the match.
A 140 start from Fitzpatrick was matched by Kohiri on his second visit to the oche in leg eight. A 115 then left Fitzpatrick requiring 89 as Kohiri moved from 176 to 76. Fitzpatrick missed the bull for the leg and Kohiri was good enough to take full advantage and win the match by six legs to two.
Kohiri was delighted to win “It was a good statement of intent and my first win of this season so I am obviously happy. It is great to have a team around me like Team Kiwi for support and this win was important to me.”
Event 16 on the DPA calendar saw Steve Fitzpatrick comprehensively defeat Ben Robb 6-1. Robb had some tough matches all morning whilst Fitzpatrick had felt he should already have beaten Robb in on one of their other titanic struggle of the previous days. Damon Heta started strongly in his match and went to a 4-0 lead before Paul Cotton took a leg. In the end Heta won the match 6-2. Robbie King was one leg away at five legs to three before Lynch held throw to put King’s throw under some pressure. King was able to hold his nerve though and took the match 6-4. Haupai Puha went 3-0 up and had his chances in the fourth leg but Raymond O’Donnell took his chance to get back in the match. In the seventh leg O’Donnell held throw to move back to within one leg of his opponent. He was then able to finish off the stronger of the two players and won 6-5.
In the semi finals Damon Heta took an early break to lead 2-0 against Steve Fitzpatrick before the Tasmanian broke back and levelled the match at 2-2. Heta then won two legs in a row to take back a two leg lead before Fitzpatrick broke his opponent in the seventh leg and then held throw to move the match back to 4-4. The next two legs went on throw to move the match to a single deciding leg which was won by Fitzpatrick as he broke the throw of Heta to lock up a 6-5 win.
Raymond O’Donnell won the first leg of his match before Robbie King took three games in succession to gain the upper hand in the match. O’Donnell held the next leg to move back within one of parity. King then moved to another two leg lead and ended up winning the match by six legs to three.
The final was a battle of a previous world youth championship player verse a 2018 Australian representative in the same competition. Robbie King of Team Misfits won the bull to throw first but a poor first visit and a 140 from Steve Fitzpatrick gave the Team Rebel player the early momentum. A maximum on his third visit moved King closer but it was Fitzpatrick who set up a first opportunity for the leg by leaving 125, which he completed with his 12th dart to take an early break. On throw Fitzpatrick threw 90 and then 100. King was unable to get a treble in three successive visits and a 60 from Fitzpatrick left him requiring 134 (and at least six darts to get it.) A 134 from King put his opponent under pressure but in the end Fitzpatrick took the leg with a double 18.

Leg three saw Fitzpatrick get his first maximum on his initial visit to the oche but his following visits were inconsistent. A 140 moved King to 100 whilst Fitzpatrick could not convert 108. King missed double ten for his first leg and with two darts the Tasmanian had a three nil lead in the match. King hit a maximum on his second visit against the darts in leg four but could only follow up with a 42. A ton visit from Fitzpatrick left him needing 147 as 125 from King left him requiring just 71. Neither player could convert on their next visit and King eventually took the leg with a double eight. He then threw first in leg five but a 180 from Fitzpatrick gave him a good lead in the leg. King stood needing 89 when his opponent missed tops for the leg. King then missed five darts to hold throw and Fitzpatrick finally took his chance to lead 4-1.

Leg six was critical to King but Fitzpatrick got to a check out first, requiring Nelson (111). He missed and King then converted 115 to get back into the match. Having had three breaks in a row it was vital that King held throw for him to get back into the match effectively. He left Shanghai as his opponent moved to 137. Neither player converted their high check outs with King finally hitting double 8 for the leg.
Leading by only one leg Fitzpatrick looked to regain the impetus by holding throw. King pounced on a poor visit from his opponent to move ahead in the leg but his 140 was matched by Fitzpatrick on his next visit. King missed tops for the leg as he chased 154 but was able to return to the oche and secure it with his next dart.

With the match at parity after eight legs King hit two visits of 137 to leave 136. Both players chased the same check out but neither could convert and it was left to King to hit double two and lead the match for the first time. King had won four games in succession and to stay in the match Fitzpatrick had to hold throw. He moved his way through the leg to leave 170 but was unable to convert it. His opponent failed to convert the second biggest check out possible and Fitzpatrick converted the 74 required to move the match to a final deciding leg.

Neither player could hit a treble with their opening six darts of the final leg but King scored 100 on his third visit and followed it up with the same. With Fitzpatrick well behind King chased 105 for the match and missed a double for the match. Fitzpatrick required 142 but also missed a match dart. King then hit the double 16 with his next dart to take his second final in successive days.

King was ecstatic with the win once again “With the quality of the field to win two tournaments in successive days is a real buzz. I am aiming for consistency but my win yesterday has given me real confidence that I can win tight finals.” For Fitzpatrick there was obvious disappointment but also pride in his result. “I have beaten players of the calibre of Ben Robb and Damon Heta to make the Final today and Robbie and I had a cracking match so it is hard to be too disappointed but obviously at this stage of my development in the game I am here to win finals.”

Event 13 saw quarter finals of the calibre of Ryan Lynch v Dave Marland, where the youngster outlasted the former Melbourne Darts Masters competitor 5-4, Steve Fitzpatrick v Damon Heta where Heta’s strong run of results came to a bump in the road, losing 2-5 to the Tasmanian, Robbie King v Haupai Puha, where the all conquering Kiwi was taken down by a resurgent former World Youth Championship player in King five legs to two and James Bailey v Mick Lacey, both of whom have been very consistent of recent times but Bailey demonstrating his class with another match finishing 5-2.
In the semi final stage Bailey hit the best average across the four players as he took out King five legs to three. Bailey had gone out to an early 2-0 lead and was never headed as each player then went leg for leg before a 13 dart leg handed the match to Bailey. The other semi saw both Australian representatives for the World Youth Championship from last year go head to head. Both players won their opening games before Ryan Lynch took two legs in a row. Steve Fitzpatrick was unable to put two legs in row of his own and thus Lynch took out the match 5-3.
The Final was over before it began as Bailey smashed out four legs in a row, averaging over 100 in the third leg alone. Lynch finally took out a leg in the fifth leg (despite Bailey averaging over 120 for the leg) and he also secured the seventh leg but missed his chances in the eighth and Bailey secured a 6-2 win.
Afterward Bailey was delighted, “I always want to play consistently and am absolutely ecstatic to have taken out another final.” For Lynch it was a day of contrasting fortunes, “It was a funny day as I know I can play better but I did take my chances to make the final and am happy to have made that stage.”
Day two started with a knock out event as event 14. Damon Heta put behind his defeat in the quarters of the previous day to beat veteran Bill Aitken in a deciding leg whilst Ben Robb also moved through that stage, by the same scoreline over Team Rebel’s Steve Fitzpatrick. In the other quarters Robbie King took out the winner from the previous day, James Bailey, by six legs to two, and Raymond O’Donnell defeated Haupai Puha.
The semi finals both finished 6-3 with Robb overcoming Heta and King taking O’Donnell down.
The final saw Robb open his throw with a 180 only to lose the leg. King then held his throw, holding a 100% check out conversion after the two legs. A second maximum from Robb in leg three was enough to give him a big enough lead but even then King had one dart at a 3-0 lead. He missed and with his next dart Robb had halved his opponent’s lead.
The next leg was very close but Robb missed double 16 for an equaliser and two darts later King had checked out to take a 3-1 lead. Robb then secured the next two legs, with a double eight putting the match back into parity at three legs each.
Robb then had to hold his throw to take the lead for the first time in the match and a third 180 looked to have helped his cause until King responded with the same later in the leg. Robb still had two shots at tops for the leg but missed them and a double four was enough for King to regain the lead. King then held his throw in the next leg with a double five after Robb had two shots at double ten for an immediate break back.
With a 5-3 lead King was just a leg away but with Robb throwing first he could stay in the match by holding throw. Another 180 visit moved him to 139 and within five darts Robb had put the pressure on King throwing for the match in the next leg. In that leg King hit a 123 but Robb responded with a 140. King had first shot at a check out score, needing 135, but only managed 55 to leave 80. Robb then chased 141 but could only move to 58. King then left tops after his next visit but Robb then missed his own chance to check out. The next dart after that from King turned out to be the winning dart, as he secured the match and the event, with a 6-4 win in the final.
King was delighted to have finally secured a tournament win, his first since 2014. “It was great to have the monkey off my back and win a final. It is really pleasing to have this winning feeling once again at this level and I am looking forward to using this to help my game in the future.”

The DPA Challenge Tour was on again over the weekend and in Sydney the second venue for the event, the Blue Cattle Dog Hotel at St Marys, saw James Doherty take out the first two events over Liam McLennan on both occasions. The following day Doherty picked up a hat trick of wins with victory over Nathan Walsh (5-3) before another regular winner, Kerry Allen, returned to winning ways with a 5-2 victory over Doherty (who had played in every round over the whole weekend.)
At Mollymook, on the South Coast of NSW, Manny Kato won his first event of the Challenge Tour with a win over regular victor Shane Wolter in the second event after Wolter had taken out the first event of the weekend with a 5-3 win in the Final over Russell Northey. Day two started the same way day one had, with a 5-3 win to Wolter over Northey. Manny Kato then doubled his own victory tally with a 5-0 whitewash of Matt Craig in the last event.
At the Young Services Club in south western NSW Greg LeStrange continued his good form with a 5-3 win over Rod Crawford before Josh Townsend took out the second event, defeating Adam Faulkner 6-4 in the Final. Le Strange then took out both events on the Sunday, with a 4-2 win over Faulkner and then a 4-3 victory over Mick Lean in the final event of the weekend.
At the Italian Club in Morwell the Victorian leg of the championship saw Brode Klinge defeat veteran Dean Gibbs 5-2 in the second final having won the first event 5-1 over Brandon Weening, a young player riding a wave of success in recent weeks. Weening followed up on the weekend by handing another defeat to Gibbs in a Final, taking out the win 5-4. In the final event Klinge completed a hat trick of wins on the weekend with a 5-2 win over Kjell Ove Almeland.
The next Challenge Tour event will be occurring in Tasmania before the action returns to Queensland and across NSW and Victoria. The Harrows DPA Pro Tour has a bumper round this coming extended weekend at the ALH Macquarie Inn Dubbo, host of the first two DPA/DPNZ Australasian Championships in 2016 and 2017.
