Gerwyn Price and Rob Cross shared the spoils to conclude the opening night of action at the Premier League in Aberdeen.
Price was 4-2 up but squandered his lead. He had to then battle back to force the draw with Cross who looked like he was on his way to victory.
Price and Cross shared the opening legs on throw but when the former missed opportunities to hold, ‘Voltage’ capitalised to go 2-1 up with a break.
‘The Iceman’ hit straight back and broke throw following this with a brilliant 124 checkout on the bull to make it 4-2 as he let out one of his trademark roars.
All that work was rendered irrelevant as Cross broke straight back after Price had opportunities to hold. He continued to miss chances and Cross restored it to parity.
He missed double 13 for a 146 checkout and Cross broke again. A 100 checkout assured Cross of a point.
Price smashed in a 130 checkout and gave a wry smile as he went one away from the draw and it was one he claimed as the duo shared the spoils.
