Geordie Morton sealed his place in Grand Finals night with two fine wins in the Knack Premier Darts League.
Morton defeated Lincolnshire’s Richard Selby 5-1, aided by a maximum and a 15 dart best leg. Geordie then sealed his spot as he beat Alan Smith 5-3.
Rob McCluskey picked up maximum points, giving him a glimmer of hope in securing the final spot.
McCluskey strolled to a 5-1 victory over Will Neave and then ended any hope of Anth Skelton progressing with a 5-3 win. Skelton had kept his hopes alive earlier in the night with a brilliant 5-0 victory over Davey Thompson.
Graeme Hills picked up six points as he coasted to two 5-2 wins over Alan Smith and Richard Selby.
Philly Dunn completed his league fixtures, playing four games on a busy night.
However, Dunn was beaten 5-0 by Dave Prins, Grahame Mullen and then again for a third time by Neil Rose.
Dunn spared the blushes as he beat Barry Rutherford 5-1.
Will Neave made up for his loss against McCluskey as he went on to beat Lee Walton 5-3.
Neave then thumped David Brown 5-0 in his third game.
Paul Williams didn’t drop a leg in his 5-0 wins over David Brown and Neil Richardson.
Lee Walton was a 5-0 winner over Dan Gillibrand and Matthew Hodgson also thumped Neil Richardson 5-0.
Hodgson then shared the spoils in a draw with Chris Wood.
Wood was a shock 5-1 winner over Mullen, but was on the wrong end of a 5-3 result against Paul McGowan. McGowan and Eddie Ashman couldn’t be split in their game.
Davey Thompson was a 5-3 winner over Andrew Ambler, but was on the wrong end of a 5-3 result against Spiller Henderson.
Thompson was then a 5-2 winner over Neil Mather in his third game. Mather had earlier shared the spoils in a 4-4 draw with John Allan. Allan then lost 5-2 against Dan Gillibrand.
Ryan Joyce continued to apply some pressure on league leader Dave Prins as he secured two wins against Dougie Hall (5-1) and Neil Rose (5-1).
Rose defeated Barry Rutherford in his earlier game as he strolled to a 5-0 win. Dave Prins came from 3-0 behind to beat Eddie Ashman 5-3.
Spiller Henderson was in fine form against Dougie Hall in his second game as he came away a 5-2 winner.
