Wright crashes out

West Lothian Courier - - Drivetime Extra -

Liv­ingston-born darts ace Peter Wright’s in­con­sis­tent form this year con­tin­ued af­ter he was dumped out of the World Series of Darts fi­nals in the sec­ond round.

The flam­boy­ant Wright, who was run­ner-up in the event in both 2015 and 2016, was the num­ber one seed but was hand­ily swept aside, 6-1, at the hands of Ger­wyn Price.

The Mel­bourne Mas­ters cham­pion never looked at the races against Price, who would go on to de­feat Si­mon Whit­lock in the quar­ter-fi­nals be­fore be­ing de­feated by Michael Smith in the semis.

James Wade took the ti­tle in a thrilling 11-10 fi­nal vic­tory over Smith in Vi­enna.

Mean­while, Wright is the sec­ond seed in the Grand Slam of Darts which gets un­der­way at the week­end.

Wright, who lost out in the fi­nal last sea­son, was drawn in Group E along with Max Hopp, Josh Payne and Jim Wil­liams.
