Clayton set to face Petersen in German Darts Championship Final

The final is confirmed at the German Darts Championship with Jonny Clayton set to take on Devon Petersen shortly in Hildesheim.

Clayton was the first through with a 7-3 victory over Mervyn King hitting four 180’s and a 97.7 average as he looks to gain a second European Tour title.

He surged into the lead early on taking out 90 to make it 4-0 against King and the latter answered back momentarily with a 177 and 180 followed by double 16 for an 11-darter for 4-1 down.

‘The Ferret’ though went one away from the final at 6-2 up. Questions were asked following that with Clayton squandering three match darts at tops and King survived at 6-3.

But this proved nothing more than a consolation with Clayton pinning 62 with King sat on the same to reduce the deficit further. A brilliant weekend has just got better for the Welshman.

While for Petersen, he saw off Danny Noppert in a 7-4 win as he reaches another ranking final and his first European Tour with a 100.7 average to boot. Can he claim his first PDC title?

He moved 2-1 up in the early stages and 3-2 with no 180’s between the pair as the tie began to get really scrappy but a first maximum was timely from ‘The African Warrior’ who held his throw to go 4-3 up and broke throw from there at 5-3 up.

He suddenly went to within one with a 101 checkout but getting over the finishing line was a different story.

Missing one match dart allowed Noppert to stay allowing at 6-4 down. Despite that though like in the Clayton match, it proved nothing more than to prolong the tie as Petersen got over the line hitting double 16 after setting it up from 130.
