David Evans and Paul Nicholson have started their days well on Day 5 of the Icons of Darts Live League with them both picking up double wins.
Evans claimed a sixth consecutive victory in the Icons of Darts Live League defeating Andy Jenkins in a closely fought decider to start.
‘Stretch’ was lucky to claim it though as ‘Rocky’ missed a match dart en route handing the former a win which strengthens his cause for the overall win this week; which he is likely to claim if he makes it three from three today.
He followed it up though with yet another win seeing off Raymond van Barneveld 5-3 with a 95.6 average to make it 7 in a row and go half way to yet another Group win.
There was also another victory like alluded to for Paul Nicholson who only just saw off Mark Webster in a 5-4 win which saw the latter miss two match darts in the decider.
It was a game full of back and forth but for Nicholson he always stayed within arms length with a brilliant 160 checkout one of the highlights.
