BASICS Darts caused an upset at the opening round of the Vodafone-sponsored Suva-Lami Darts League competition on Monday night at Defence Club in Suva.
The side consisting of upcoming players, siblings Isabel and Joseph Heritage alongside Simon Pene, played extremely good darts to hold off highly favoured Traps 6-5.
Basic Darts skipper Bella Whippy said she gave the youngsters an opportunity in opening round to showcase their ability in the competition.
She said they had been practising well during the two-week school break and their hard work paid off with a brilliant performance on Monday night.
"They're an enthusiastic group with their friends James and Daniel, so I thought why not and it worked," whippy said.
"Thanks to our Suva league which has just ended, they are gaining confidence especially in playing their singles game."
Meanwhile, a strong Lami-based Combine Brothers edged out Suva league number two, Wilderness Merchants Club.
The teams were locked 5-5 going into the final singles game, which saw Combine team captain and veteran Meli Delai secure their last game giving them a 6-5 win.
Rinesh Ram of Radial Darts had an 18-darts finish and also a 120 highest finish.
The highest score for the night of 171 went to Rajesh Naidu of 3Ds.
"There were some very good darts played, and we expect some close results throughout this league," the Fiji Darts Association official Nyla Alfred said.
