Murdo on target in darts competitions

The Summer Open Darts weekend took place in the Sea Angling, Stornoway last Friday and Saturday, and saw an epic performance for Murdo who at only 18 years old won all the four competitions.

Don and Alex K beat Calum Martin and Mark in the other semi clash.

The final saw father and son, Andy and Murdo romp to a 7-1 win over Don and Alex K.

On the Saturday the Blind Draw Doubles started the day and Craig won his second title of the weekend winning with Murdo, who beat Haggis and Calum Ruddy in the final.

The last competition of the weekend was the Open Singles and there were some good games on the day.

The first semi saw Murdo get the better of his dad Andy 7-5 to get to final, where he played Willie Reid, who beat Norrie 7-6 in the other semi.

The final saw Murdo take control and win 7-2 to make it four wins in four competition - a good weekend’s work!
