Tony O'Shea 7-2 Dean Winstanley
It was another frustrating night for Dean Winstanley as he fell to a fourth straight defeat on Tuesday night. The man from Buxton struggled to get into the match as his opponent Tony O'Shea calmly picked up five legs in a row from leg three onwards to motor ahead 6-1. Winstanley seemed edgy throughout the contest and has now made finishing above John Walton his main tournament aim.
James Richardson 7-1 John Walton
James Richardson produced the biggest win of the tournament so far as he crushed John Walton seven legs to one in the second match of the night's play. Picking up from his heavy 7-2 win against Gary Robson on Monday, Richardson kicked on here to lead 4-0 in the opening exchanges. Walton pulled one back in the fifth leg as he switched darts but it was to no avail as Richardson took the final three to win 7-1.
Paul Hogan 7-0 Wes Newton
Whatever James Richardson can do, Paul Hogan can do better. A 7-1 win for Richardson in the earlier game was eclipsed by Hogan as he whitewashed Wes Newton in match three. Hogan turned on the style as he posted three 180's, a 177 and a 121 checkout, Newton on the other hand failed to take his chances in the middle part of the match and met with the ultimate defeat.
Jim Williams 6-6 Darryl Fitton
This intriguing match did not disappoint as it went to the wire with the points shared. Darryl Fitton will be kicking himself with the Stockport man 6-3 up with three to play and on the verge of an upset. Tournament fav Williams showed real character to take the final three legs and maintain his unbeaten record in this competition. Despite the late drive Williams complained of being deflated and not reaching his usual levels.
Gary Robson 7-4 Alan Norris
Gary Robson picked up his second win of the Remote Darts League tournament with a fairly comfortable 7-4 win over Alan Norris. Robson was out the blocks quickly with some excellent scoring as he set up a 3-0 lead and immediately put Norris under pressure. The Yeovil man found his rhythm in the middle part of the match as he picked up a couple of legs but Robson kicked on to lead 6-2. Despite a late effort from Norris, Robson signed, sealed and delivered the match 7-4.
