ANDERSON IS THE CHAMPION
By John Lowe, May 22 2015 07:08AM
After 15 weeks of Premier League play Gary Anderson was crowned champion at London's O2 arena in front of 11,000 fans, he didn't win without a little good luck though, in his semi-final against Dave Chisnall he was looking at defeat with the match at 9-9 Chisnall left 32 after 12 darts then amazingly missed D16 D8 and D4 to let the Scott back to the Oche and a 116 out shot meant Anderson was in the final.
The second semi-final between Barney and MVG was a close match, both players averaging over 100, drama struck in the 10th leg when Barney needed D12 to throw the first 9 dart game in this seasons P.L. he missed and MVG stepped in to try and steal the leg on 161 only to miss the centre Bull, Barney returned and took the leg in 10 darts, 6-4, Barney takes the next leg to go 7-4 in front but that's when fortunes changed and MVG took the next 5 legs, Barney pulled back to 9-8 to keep his hopes alive only to see MVG take out D4 and book his place against Anderson in the final.
The final was when Anderson came into his best, after the lucky escape against Chisnall he was determined not to find himself in the same position again, it did take him 3 legs to find his finishing ability, then he never lost control of the match, at 6-3 Anderson had taken 6 out of 7 legs, MVG threw an 11 dart leg to reduce the gap to 7-5 but could not manage to get back on level terms, Anderson always finding the edge to stay 2 legs clear, in the 17th leg he took out 96 to move within one leg of the title and he followed up with a 64 out shot to win 11-7.
Anderson was the better player on the night but he will always remember that miss by Chisnall that could have changed everything
