TRICORN triumphed in two cliff-hanging Runcorn Apec Taxis Darts League finals at the Runcorn War Memorial Club on Thursday - victory only being sealed in the deciding legs.
In Section Two's Committee Challenge Cup against Halfway Mixed, Tricorn took two of the first three singles games through Paul Walsh and Paul Lawrenson with Wayne Conway (19 darts) replying.
Halfway Mixed took two of the three doubles games with wins from Chris Vaughan & Wayne Conway and Brian Coakley & Gordon White - Tricorn's Peter Langton and Ian King in reply.
In the first of the remaining three singles, Halfway Mixed went into a first-time lead through Gordon White's 18-darter. But Tricorn's Rob Law levelled and team-mate Ian King went on to win a tense decider.
In the 'Todger' Jones Cup final against Grapes, Tricorn won the opening game through Mark Cantwell and Stuart McCormack but their opponents drew level through Bob Ward and Stephen Lea.
A win from Rob Law and Jack Tarr restored Tricorn's lead only for Grapes to level again through Dylan Lewis and Neil Sanders.
The deciding game went to Tricorn's Paul Walsh and Paul Lawrenson.
It was Navvy's night on Friday when they triumphed in two cup finals.
Halfway Gents were opponents in the Section One Committee Challenge Cup and Navvy raced into a 3-0 lead, winning all three singles in the first set through Neil Ward, Paul Carr and Ian Deakin.
Navvy followed up by winning all three doubles through Kev Jones & Ian Darlington, Barry O'Connor & Glynn Thornhill and Marc Chimes & Steve Smith.
Halfway Gents gained consolation by taking the first of the three remaining singles through Keith Massey. Navvy, however, took the last two - courtesy of Peter Murphy and Glynn Thornhill.
Navvy faced local rivals, Albion, in the Best Sports Cup final with the latter taking the opener through Paul Melia.
Navvy's Ian Deakin squared the match but Albion went into a 3-1 lead through Phil Littler (12 darts) and Nick Hough.
Navvy came back strongly to take the next two games through Peter Murphy and Barry O'Connor.
But, again, Albion regained the lead through Dave Houlgrave.
Navvy, however, had the last word. Ian Darlington made it four apiece before team-mate and anchor man Glynn Thornhill won the decider.
