DOUBLE TWELVE DENIES ANDERSON IN GLASGOW
By John Lowe, Mar 20 2015 03:31PM
Gary Anderson missed double 12 to finish his victory and complete the perfect 9 dart leg over Kim Huybrechts in front of his adoring fans in Glasgow last night, the match itself was very close with the averages, maximums and overall scoring almost the same, just one break of throw to anderson was enough to secure the win for the Scott. The first two matches of the night both ended in draws, Wade v Lewis and Wright v Bunting, nice result for them but for me it was an hour of TV time wasted and I almost switched channels, thankfully I did not because the next match was electric, Barney v Taylor produced everything I could ask for in professional competition play, 5 breaks of throw 3 for Barney, 12 maximums, 9 from taylor, Barney won 7-4 with an average of 104.18, Taylor lost with an average of 115.80 the highest losing average in TV history, little consolation to Taylor, but a big thank you from me for giving us the very best darts and a result. Chisnall lost to MVG in a semi-climax match, it was always going to be hard to follow the Anderson game and more so the Taylor/Barney game, MVG won 7-4 with a dissapointing 93 average, however his 41% on the doubles was enought to seal the win. MVG stays top of the table with 12 points, Anderson is now second on 10, Chisnall third with 9, Huybrechts is rooted to the bootom with just 3 points.
