Regiona claimed an incredible 10th title when they won the Inter-regional darts championship Sunday. The champions, who swept the singles, team game and the youth category, amassed 501 points at Makerere Guild Canteen.

Buganda, who snatched the women and doubles titles, finished in second place with 410 while Western came third with 143. Eastern region failed to field a team.

Michael ‘Computer’ Nyeko was the star of Northern. His cruise past Buganda veteran Edward Mukiibi 3-0 in the final sparked off jubilations. Nyeko, who saw off Charles Nkuruziza (Western) in the semi-finals, produced a devastating display of precision as he reeled off 100s and 80s.

Mukiibi, a 3-1 winner over Terrance Ongal (Northern) in the other semi-final, struggled to score.

Fourth seed Nyeko showed his tough stance earlier in the round robin event when he disposed off favourite David Tabaro.

And he lived up to the billing as he hit three maximum 180s against just one by Stephen Hunter (Western) and Buganda’s Mukiibi.

Good organisation gave the winning edge for the Celtel sponsored Northern Region Darts Organisation (NOREDO) who have dominated the event since 1987.

“We shall continue to dictate the pace if others do not improve,” said NOREDO official Charles Langol. “And whenever they improve, we shall also improve further. We are here to stay”.

Buganda’s Harriet Mugalu clawed from behind to edged Rosette Okwonzi 3-2 for the women’s title.

The two-day meet precedes the Uganda International Open due September 26-27.
