TERRY TEMPLE WINS 4-0
NIGEL HEYDON WINS 4-1
JOE MURNAN WINS 4-1
PAUL NICHOLSON VS HARRY MILES
This should be straight-forward for “The Asset” but nothing is for sure at the UK Open!
Nicholson is winning 1-0 …
Nicholson averaging 96 and Miles is averaging 100 …
1-1 Miles hits Double 8 to equal out the match so far
2-1 to Miles could there be another upset tonight? I don’t think I could take it 🙂
No, or not yet at least, 2-2
ON BOARD 2 HANKEY IS BEATING ANDY JENKINS 3-1
3-2 to Nicholson … The Asset on 197 and Miles on 201 .. Paul has left himself on D16 for the Match
FIRST DART .. Nicholson is through
Nicholson says ” I’ve been missing doubles I haven’t been missing last year” Paul has a bit of a shoulder problem, could this hinder him from progressing ?
TED HANKEY WINS 4-1 HE PLAYS MERVYN KING NEXT MATCH Ted is getting “a bit of support” tonight, I think it is helping him.
