The next players through to the final day at the Gibraltar Darts Trophy are Kim Huybrechts, Rob Cross and Krzysztof Ratajski.
Huybrechts kept his European Championship hopes alive with victory over Jonny Clayton – who has been brilliant over the past week or so on the ProTour but ‘The Hurricane’ breezed to a 6-3 win. It was impressive from the Belgian with three 180’s and 54 percent on the doubles.
Cross wasn’t at his brilliant best but didn’t have to be against Krzysztof Kciuk coming through a 6-3 winner with an 87 average, 10 more than his opponent. He showed signs of his best though with three 180’s and a brilliant 126 checkout that he will hope to take into tomorrow.
Finally Ratajski did what his countryman could not do and that was move through with another 6-3 win over Steve Beaton. He saw off ‘The Bronzed Adonis’ in a steady performance himself with a 124 checkout the highlight for ‘The Polish Eagle’.
