N19 reignited their ailing season in the Archway League by edging out Slattery’s 9-6 in a contest that will live long in the memory.

Jimmy Galvin spearheaded a strong start for the winners with a maximum, while Mark Butler landed a fine 17-dart leg to seal a fifth victory of the season after a below-par start.
