The final two first round clashes in the afternoon session of the German Darts Championship have been completed. Andrew Gilding completed a shock win over Max Hopp and Krzysztof Ratajski came from behind to defeat Vincent Van der Voort.
Gilding first of all claimed a 6-2 win over Hopp, a home favourite and a seed from next week in Maastricht. He averaged 91 as he aims to avoid Q-School in January.
Ratajski was 4-1 down to Van der Voort but reeled off 5 straight legs to see off the Dutch Destroyer. The Polish Eagle hasn’t been in destructive form himself on the European Tour this year but will hope to put a good run together this weekend.
