Lakeside 2018 Day 6 Session 1 Report
Justin Van Tergouw 3 Vs 1 Killian Heffernan
The Final of the world youth championship took off in style with Killian taking out a 156 checkout in the first leg of the match. Dutch sharp-shooter Justin van Tergouw had a 170 check out on his way to retaining the BDO World Youth Championship. The maximum check out came in the opening set against Killian Heffernan. Heffernan shrugged that off to go 1-0 up in sets, but after that, van Tergouw was unstoppable. The Dutch teenager won the next nine legs and finished the match with an average of 93.04 and a 3-1 scoreline.
Sharon Prins 0 Vs 2 Deta Hedman
World No 1 Deta Hedman produced a stunning finish to her quarter final against Sharon Prins. She wrapped up the match with an 84 check out on the bulls eye. That completed a 2-0 win for Hedman. Both sets went to a deciding leg.
Jim Williams 4 Vs 3 Conan Whitehead
No 9 seed Jim Williams is through to the last eight after surviving three match darts against Conan Whitehead in a thrilling, see-saw second-round shoot-out. The match went all the way to a deciding seventh set and Whitehead was only 57 points away from victory when Williams took aim at a 161 check out in the third leg. Williams pulled off his great escape with treble 20, treble 17 and the bulls eye. Whitehead fashioned three match-winning chances in the next leg, but missed and then cracked in the fifth after Williams piled the pressure on his throw with a superb 174. Williams tidied up for a break and then held for the match.
Trina Gulliver MBE 2 Vs 0 Aileen de Graaf
Trina Gulliver turned the tables on Aileen de Graaf to reach the semi finals. De Graaf came out on top when they clashed at the same stage last year, but this time, Gulliver was dominant. De Graaf never really settled into the match and only won one leg as Gulliver stayed on course for a possible 11th Women’s World Championship.
