LAST Wednesday night saw 22 players contest the Dhodoi’s Fast Food singles title. The top half of the draw saw Nine Pillay beat Rowen Pillay 2-1, and Jerry Arunachellum beat Devan Gounden 2-0 to move into the next round.

Pillay, who was producing good darts throughout the night, proved too strong and defeated Arunachellum 2-0.

Justin Naidoo, who lost to Pillay a fortnight ago, came to the party with high intentions and swiped past Meersingh Soobram with a 2-0 victory.

Newcomer Aston Muthoosamy beat Jullian Munisamy 2-0, while Devan Gounden beat Sameer Lakraj 2-0.

Devan Gounden went on to take Muthoosamy in the next round and proved too strong and beat Muthoosamy 2-0 in straight sets.

Naidoo was seeking revenge and beat Pillay in a close 2-1 victory to advance into the semis to meet Gounden.

Naidoo, who started the first set against Gounden, played top darts to win the first set, however, Gounden replied well, levelling the scores 1-1.

Naidoo wasted no time in the third set and defeated Gounden 2-1 to advance into the final.

The bottom half of the draw saw Vinesh Geanbally beat Ajen Singh 2-0 and Sanjay Singh beat Preolin Muthoosamy 2-0 to meet each other.

Geanbally and Singh put up top scores against each other, but it was victory for Geanbally who proved too strong, winning 2-1 to enter into the semis.

Leon Moonsamy and Vasa Rungasamy put up top performances right to the end but it was Rungasamy who won 2-1 to meet Geanbally in the semis.

The semis were a real humdinger as both Rungasamy and Geanbally threw score for score which kept the supporters cheering. However, it was Geanbally who drew first blood to win the first set.

Rungasamy kept his cool and won the second set to level the scores 1-1.

The third set was nervewrecking as the game was closely contested but Geanbally claimed victory 2-1 to advance into the finals.

The final was one-way traffic as Geanbally was unstoppable and he beat Naidoo 2-0 to claim the Dhodoi’s Fast Food singles title.

KDDA officials would like to thank Ravendran Govender for his third year of sponsorship.

Tonight, KDDA will start the Trophy Engravers Team League at the Quartz in Stanger Manor.
