I came, I saw, they are down!; I came, I saw, they are gone!


Explanation:
"Veni Vedi Foetsie" is the name of a of Dutch dart team!!!

"Veni, Vedi" is Latin for "I came, I saw"

"foetsie" is Dutch for "(it's/they are) gone/disappeared"

Given above context I would suggest:

"I came, I saw, they are down!"
