Gurney Sets up Second Round Clash with Smith

Gurney Sets up Second Round Clash with Smith

12 November, 2019

Daryl Gurney sealed his spot in the Grand Slam of Darts second round last night after taking a 5-2 win over fellow Northern Ireland World Cup team-mate, Brendan Dolan.

The pairing faced a straight shoot-out in Group G to see who would join Germany’s Gabriel Clemens in the knockout stages. In what was an unbelievable tight contest, it was Gurney’s finishing that took the day with two 100+ checkouts, including a 161 in leg six.

Gurney will now face Michael Smith after the Bully Boy clinched a last leg victory over Martin Schindler. Smith found himself 3-0 down but bounced back to defeat the already-eliminated German. Glen Durrant also whitewashed UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall 5-0 in group H and will now play Clemens in Round 2.

Ryan Harrington continued his dream run into the knockout stages after defeating Wayne Warren 5-1 in a scrappy affair - whilst Peter Wright defeated Danny Noppert 5-2 to see the Dutchman eliminated at the group stage.

Group E also concluded last night with drama to the last as Rob Cross picked up a 5-4 win over Jamie Hughes. Cross burst into 4-1 lead, but Yozza battled back valiantly to force it into a deciding leg as Cross missed seven match darts. Cross rallied once again in deciding leg to set-up a last 16 clash with Peter Wright, whilst Dave Chisnall topped the group and plays Ryan Harrington next.
