Scotty Mitchell Wins Munsterland Open/Classic – The Dog’s Diary

On the Saturday was Munsterland Open where I lost out in a tight 4-3 in last 16 against who new name to me Daniel Zygla.

He went on to make the semi finals. The eventual winner was Rick Hofstra beating fellow Dutchman Jeffrey De Zwann in the final.

The Munsterland Classic was played on the Sunday. A shorter format of best of 5 for the early group stages. Group finals were best of 7. Group final beat German Kevin Munch 4-2, Last 16 i defeated Dutchman Matthew Medhurst 4-3. The quarter finals were best of 9, an my opponent was Gary Robson. in tight game i broke his darts in the 7th leg and held my own in 8th to win 5-3. My England captain was my semi final opponent Tony Oshea. I broke throw twice early to find myself 4-1 up. Tony broke back to go 4-2 but i broke again with a 12 dart leg with a 140 check out in the 7th leg. Won the 8th with 13 dart leg to hold throw for 6-2 win and a very pleasing 99.1 av.

Final i was to Play Kent^s Pip Blackwell. I broke darts for 16 first leg on double 4.Pip broke me back immediately with classy 104 for 12 dart leg, a scrappy 3rd leg i took after missed darts at double from Pip. This led the way me taking next 3 legs in 13,15,18 and 5-1 lead in a best of 11 leg match. Blackwell came back with 2 classy 14 darters on the trot to take it to 5-3 in legs. Pip started leg with darts and 1st 9 dart with scores 95,60,140, to my 85,60,60. His next score of 41 i punished with a 135 an i followed that with a 137 to leave 24 which shot double 12 1st dart. My average 91.74 and Pip^s a 90.99av after 2 long days i felt were very creditable. I was very pleased to make the Bulls Munsterland classic is my 8th BDO tour title with currently holder of 4 of those.
