Waites romps into BDO final
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
