2006 All Star Challenge

3nd Annual Match, October 22, 2:00 pm

Hosted by Windy City Darters at Di's Den, 5100 W Irving Park Road

Southside Dart League won the 2006 All Star Challenge, beating Windy City Darters for the first time since the annual contest began in 2004.
SDL shooters eaked out a 19-17 victory powered by a most determined women's team. The Brass, Nickel and Masters teams each churned through tight matches to arrive at a 4-5 loss, while the Southside ladies rang up a 7-2 to carry the day.
The actual finish was a barnburner: All matches were finished before Masters' games 8 & 9. As the score was 18-16 favoring Southside, Windy City needed to win both remaining games to force a tie*. An unflappable Sonny Loepke won the deciding point in singles cricket that ended with a scorching final leg of 700 points
