A DOUBLE 5 was all it needed for Lani Dampag to win the first Cordillera Darts Ladies Club Open Thursday at Goldmine Bar.
After failing to close out losers bracket winner Nancy Decaran in the best of three 501 first portion of the finals, Dampag recovered to win the decider 701 for the winners bracket topnotcher in the first offering of the ladies darts organization.
"It was difficult, I hard a time closing thus the decider," said Dampag in the 16-women offering of the CDLC, a double knock out tournament which is a race to two winners bracket and a 701 losers bracket.
Dampag took her first game with a win by deciding Jen Fuertes, then surprised top rated Genn Garlejo in a 2-0 501 victory. She then took out Justin Aguilar, 2-0, then decided Jaja Lamaria, 2-1, with a double 10 closer that set her for the finale.
"I was overwhelmed that many are supporting me," said Dampag, a former national ladies champion.
