Scott too Hot for the Boss to Handle

Lakeside World Professional Darts Day 2 Afternoon Session Highlights Game 1: Glen Durrant 3 – 0 Gary Robson Glen Durrant eased his way into the 2nd round at Lakeside after a strong 3-0 win over Gary Robson. Robson has enjoyed a favourable record over Durrant in the past but couldn’t touch Duzza as the Teesside thrower won with an impressive 95 average. “As a dart player you are thinking, have you done enough preparation? Have you done enough practice?” Glen explained after the match. “But once you get on that stage it’s pretty different and after the 1st leg I felt comfortable” Durrant now faces the winner of Monday evening’s clash between Darryl Fitton and Justin Thompson. Glen Durrant, Gary Robson, BDO World Championship, Lakeside, 2018, Darts Game 2: Umit Uygunsozlu 2 – 3 Chris Harris The next match of the day was a real tight tungsten tussle as neither man really got going in this Prelim. It was Chris Harris who picked up the 3-2 victory over Umit Uygunsozlu, who will go down in the record books as the 1st ever Turkish player to play at Lakeside. That has now confirmed an all-Welsh affair next for Harris who will play Dean Reynolds on Monday. When quizzed about how he will approach Reynolds, Harris stated: “I’ll approach him the same I do every game. Same practice, get up there and just play darts” Chris Harris, Umit Uygunsozlu, BDO World Championship, Lakeside, 2018, Darts Game 3: Corrine Hammond 1-2 Fallon Sherrock Last year’s runner-up played 2015’s runner-up next and after Sherrock put in a confident opening set display, Australian Hammond pulled a set-back. Sherrock then took the last set comfortably 3-1, hitting 10 Ton+ visits along the way. Post-match Fallon explained “It feels really good to get through to the next round “But, it is really hard to play Corrine as we have bonded so much recently. It was like playing a sister” Sherrock has yet another tough match coming up as she faces defending Champion Lisa Ashton in the quarter-finals. Fallon Sherrock, Corrine Hammond, BDO World Championship, Lakeside, 2018, Darts Game 4: Ross Montgomery 1-3 Scott Waites There was no doubt that the best match was save until last. Waites and Montgomery delivered top-quality darts but it was Waites’ power scoring at the right moments that took him into the next round. Waites had missed 6 match darts at 2-1 up in sets before firing in a huge 11 dart leg to claim the win. Scott spoke confidently of his chances of lifting the trophy after the win: "I believe I can win it again. "You've got to turn up to the competition and believe in yourself. If you don't believe in yourself then there's no point turning up." Scott now will play the winner of Dean Reynolds and Chris Harris in the Last 16.
