JAY Jordan and Ken Kostitch are a double act which couldn’t be beaten on the weekend.
The Orange duo contested the Western Area Legends tournament in Mudgee on the weekend with Jordan taking out the men’s singles title before joining Kostitch to claim victory in the doubles.
Jordan went through his singles sheet undefeated and kept his winning form going to take out the grand final against his Lithgow opponent 3-0.
Jordan is modest about his win but Kostitch is happy to talk it up.
“He deserved to win because of his consistency,” Kostitch said.
“You might think you’ve got him but he’ll come back at you game after game.”
Jordan’s great form continued in the doubles when he combined with Kostitch.
In the doubles competition players could pick their partners rather than have them drawn out of a hat.
Kostitch said other pairs were favoured to win the title but he and Jordan beat all before them.
They went through their first sheet undefeated and downed fellow Orange pair Rob Crowe and Terry Alpen 4-1 in the grand final.
“In the last leg of the finals, we threw some awesome darts,” Kostitch said.
“Jay kicked off with a 121, then I had 100, then Jay threw another 121 and I copied him with a 121.
“I was confident. My confidence grew with each win.”
Jordan said they had a strong combination.
“I think we just click. If one of us is down, the other can pick him up,” Jordan said.
“If we stick together we’ll get to know each other’s games better and we’ll be very tough to beat,” Kostitch added.
They’ll be able to test this out next year when they compete in the NSW Doubles Championships in Gosford.
For now, they will keep playing in Orange with Kostitch playing for the Great Western Tigers in the men’s competition and Jordan for the Hotel Orange.
They will be able to work on their combination in the mixed competition as they both play for the Kookaburras.
