Borland dumps out Whitlock in memorable European Championship debut, Dolan eases past Huybrechts

The opening ties at the 2021 European Championship are complete with William Borland and Brendan Dolan making it through to the second round in Salzburg.

Borland who is making his debut in the tournament this weekend made it a memorable one by dumping out Simon Whitlock in the opening game of the night.

The ever improving Scot came from 2-0 down to see off 'The Wizard' 6-3 with a fine 121 checkout to turn the game on its head at 3-2 and despite Whitlock breaking to go within one again at 4-3, four darts at doubles were missed by the Aussie.

Borland went one away as a result and smashed in a 142 checkout to move through in the first potential shock at the weekend.

While there was no shock for a rock solid Brendan Dolan who produced a superb 6-2 victory over Kim Huybrechts.

'The History Maker' who has been in superb form this year but has flattered to deceive on TV at times breezed past 'The Hurricane' with a 96 average and three 180's.
