Waites romps into BDO fi­nal

Sunday Express - - SPORT - DARTS

SCOTT WAITES booked his place in today’s fi­nal of the Lake­side BDO World Darts Cham­pi­onships with a 6-1 defeat of Ger­many’s Michael Un­ter­buch­ner – and vowed to raise his game.

Waites, the world cham­pion in 2013 and 2016, made sure his dou­bles counted as he moved into a 5-0 lead by drop­ping only four legs.

Un­ter­buch­ner then won the sixth set 3-1 be­fore Waites took the next by the same score to seal vic­tory in this semi-fi­nal, land­ing dou­ble 18 for glory.

But he said: “I am happy to get through but I would rather play bet­ter than that – and I will do.

“That was such a strange game as nei­ther of us got into it prop­erly.

“Some­times you have to just bat­tle your way through. That was the only dif­fer­ence – I took my chance and he didn’t.”

PURE JOY: Brad­ford’s Scott Waites
