Lakeside 2018 Day 6 Session 2 Report
Fallon Sherrock 0 Vs 2 Lisa Ashton
Defending Women’s champion Lisa Ashton shook off the challenge of Fallon Sherrock to reach the last four. Ashton won in straight sets after Sherrock missed a clutch of chances to force a deciding third set. Ashton won the opening set against the darts after breaking with a spectacular 83 check out in the third leg and came from 2-0 down to win the second. Ashton says she has to “raise my game” against Deta Hedman in the semi finals.
Martin Phillips 2 Vs 4 Michael Unterbuchner
World No 82 Michael Unterbuchner wrote another chapter in his Lakeside fairytale with a 4-2 win over Martin Phillips that takes him through to the quarter finals. The German opened up a 2-0 lead, Phillips fought back to level and with the match in the balance, Phillips started missing. Unterbuchner capitalised on the Welsh veteran spurning chances to win the first and third legs to take control of the set and go 3-2 ahead. Unterbuchner took out 102 for a hold in the opening leg of the sixth set and denied Phillips the chance to get the break he needed.
Anastasia Dobromyslova 2 Vs 0 Lorraine Winstanley
Anastasia Dobromyslova produced the best performance of the BDO Women’s World Championship to see off Lorraine Winstanley. Dobromylslova recorded an 85.08 average against the Women’s No 3 seed.
Dobromyslova, who won the last of her three world titles in 2013, has reached the last four without dropping a leg and meets Trina Gulliver in the semi finals.
Richard Veenstra 4 Vs 0 Geert de Vos
Richard Veenstra completely outplayed Geert de Vos, dropping just three legs in a straight-sets win. De Vos was out of sorts, way too many of his darts drifted into the one, but that should not take away from Veenstra’s performance. The lofty Dutchman threw brilliantly. He had seven maximum 180s and finished the match with a three-dart average of 90.85.
