BDO World Trophy Day Four Results and Match Reports
Afternoon Session - Play Starts at 12pm.
Ross Montgomery (6) 6 vs 2 Ryan Hogarth
Ross Montgomery was a man on a mission as he put in the performance of the tournament so far, recording a 102.23 average in his 6-2 win over Scottish teammate, Ryan Hogarth. Despite his best efforts, Hogarth, who registered a 92.34 average, couldn’t get close to Montgomery, who won with legs of 15, 12, 11, 15, 15 and 15.
Roz Bulmer 4 vs 0 Sharon Prins (6)
After an indifferent start, Roz Bulmer settled quickly to whitewash the number six seed, Sharon Prins 4-0. Prins suffered at the business-end of the game, missing ten darts at double over the course of the match, but a brilliant 118 checkout in the second leg put Bulmer firmly in the driving seat and she won comfortably with a 68.32.
Kyle McKinstry (14) 6 vs 3 Scott Mitchell (3)
Kyle McKinstry becomes the second man through to this year’s quarter finals, beating England captain, Scott Mitchell 6-3. Neither Mitchell or McKinstry could quite reach the form they found in their first-round matches, however an inspired 142 from the Northern Ireland captain put him 5-2 ahead, and despite an excellent 83 checkout from Mitchell in the eighth leg to keep the game alive, McKinstry closed the match in the tenth with a 92.01 average.
Peter Machin 6 vs 5 Wesley Harms (7)
Peter Machin checks out with a 109 to take a narrow 6-5 victory over Wesley Harms. Both players maintained 90+ averages, but with the advantage of throw in the last leg, Machin secures his place in the quarter-finals with a 15-dart deciding leg.
Maria O’Brien 3 vs 4 Fallon Sherrock (7)
An awesome comeback from 3-0 down sees Fallon Sherrock progress into the semi-finals over England teammate, Maria O’Brien. O’Brien looked home and dry, but one missed dart for the match saw Sherrock find an extra gear and take the match 4-3 with a 74.86 average.
Michael Unterbuchner 6 vs 5 Mark McGeeney (2)
A nail-biting end to this afternoon’s session saw Germany’s Michael Unterbuchner take out the number two seed, Mark McGeeney. Twice McGeeney broke Unterbuchner’s throw, only for the debutant to break straight back in 12 darts, checking out on a 121 and a 133. McGeeney missed 4 clear darts at 40 to win in the tenth leg, but Unterbuchner took his chances and won 6-5.
