9 Dart Cadby Wins Russell Stewart Classic

The Russell Stewart Classic was held on Sunday at the Warilla Bowls and Entertainment Club with 68 players in attendance. The final was as it was the night before, a clash between Corey Cadby and Loz Ryder, but this time Cadby was much more comprehensive with a six nil win and the collection of the illustrious Russell Stewart trophy.
Again the competition was tough in the table stage but most of the big name players made it through to the round of 32. In that round Raymond Smith defeated the man whom today’s trophy was named after in Russell Stewart whilst Lucas Cameron defeated WA’s Tim Pusey. Other big guns GG Mathers, James Bailey, Steve Macarthur, Ray O’Donnell and Corey Cadby all progressed. Both Allens made it through the round. Bill Aitken defeated New Zealand’s Graeme Lowe but his Kiwi compatriot Mick Lacey was more successful. Team Danger’s Dave Williams progressed whilst compatriot Zinzan Culshaw lost to Dave Marland having led 3-1. Loz Ryder also turned a 3-1 deficit into a 4-3 victory. Jason Seinfreid and Steve Fitzpatrick rounded out the round of 32 victors.
In the round of 32 Corey Cadby whitewashed Jason Seinfreid whilst GG Mathers defeated Dave Williams 6-2 having been 2-2 after 4 legs. Despite going behind after three legs Raymond Smith was able to turn things around against Lucas Cameron and won 6-4. Marshall Allen upset Raymond O’Donnell 6-2 as General Macarthur won the battle of the Steves 6-2. Kerry Allen joined his uncle Marshall in the final eight by defeating James Bailey 6-4. Bill Aitken missed out on 34 for the win in a tight match with Loz Ryder who hit double twelve for the win. At 5-4 up Mick Lacey missed five match darts as Dave Marland finally scored the double required to take the match into a deciding leg, of which he had first throw. He took full advantage of the situation to win 6-5.
At the quarter final stage Corey Cadby continued his strong progress by defeating Marshall Allen 6-1. GG Mathers came from 4-1 down to tie the match at 5-5 and watched as his opponent, Raymond Smith, could only move from 125 to 71 before hitting hit tops to win the deciding leg. Loz Ryder stayed ahead of Kerry Allen throughout his match and despite a mini revival towards the end from his opponent won the match 6-3. Dave Marland also continued his strong form over the weekend by defeating Steve Macarthur 6-2.
In the semi finals Loz Ryder went to an early 4-0 lead over Dave Marland. A double 2 gave Marland his first leg before Ryder resumed normal service, winning the last two legs for a 6-1 victory.
In the other semi final GG Mathers went 2-0 up early before Corey Cadby gained a leg back. In the fourth leg Mathers missed tops to check out a 106 draw and Corey got double 16 to tie the match back up. Mathers then moved ahead before Cadby missed a double six for a 126 check out. Mathers could not convert and the match went to 3-3 with his next dart. In the seventh leg a double 16 gave Cadby a break of throw. He then moved two legs clear before Mathers pulled a leg back. Cadby then missed a double 16 for the match as he attempted to check out 108 but Mathers was unable to punish him and Cadby secured the win with his next dart.
In the final Loz Ryder won the bull but in his most comprehensive decider of the weekend Corey Cadby made sure it would be the only thing Ryder won in the match. He immediately broke Ryder in the first leg in 15 darts before hitting two maximums on a 12 dart leg to go two up. Ryder had two chances to win the next leg but missed them and Cadby secured tops for a second break.
The fourth leg saw poorer throwing from both players but Cadby was able to take it out through tops once more. In leg five Ryder missed the bull for the leg whilst trying to check out 96 before Cadby secured the 76 required for a third break of throw in a row. The sixth leg saw Cadby do the job in 13 darts, securing the match with yet another tops. For Cadby it was three from three and his first Russell Stewart Trophy success.
