Darts: Adams and West rally to deny underdogs
Monday 03 January 2005
Martin Adams hit back from two sets down to edge through to the second round of the British Darts Organisation World Championship with a 3-2 win over Davy Richardson at Frimley Green.
Martin Adams hit back from two sets down to edge through to the second round of the British Darts Organisation World Championship with a 3-2 win over Davy Richardson at Frimley Green yesterday.
The 48-year-old seventh seed was outplayed in the early stages but, after levelling the match, prevailed 4-2. Richardson appeared to tighten up when the prospect of taking another well-known scalp in the wake of Andy Fordham's first-round exit to Vincent van der Voort looked like becoming reality.
Another seed to overcome a poor start was Tony West, who came through 3-2 against the Netherlands' Rick Hofstra. A third fightback came in the final match of the session with Robert Wagner beating Jarkko Komula 3-2 after trailing 2-0.
The second seed Ted Hankey beat John Kuczynski 3-0 while John Henderson ended the chances of teenager Stephen Bunting, and Robert Thornton ousted World Masters quarter-finalist Martin Atkins.
Wow - what a weekend for British Motorcycle racing!
