Cross storms to whitewash victory over Cullen, North produces superb comeback to edge past West

Rob Cross and Richard North are both into the Quarter-Finals as the line up is confirmed at the International Darts Open in Riesa.

Cross stormed to a 6-0 whitewash of Joe Cullen which included a 101.3 average from 'Voltage'. Cullen himself averaged 91 but only hit two scores above 140 in the contest compared to 7 from Cross and two 180's.

He was only afforded one dart at double as well with Cross himself hitting just shy of 50 percent. It will be a weekend of frustration to Cullen who still does not have his luggage which meant he couldn't play with his darts or shirt.

North on the other hand came from 4-1 and 5-2 down to edge past Steve West in a 6-5 win to continue his run this weekend. He will now take on Cross in the final confirmed Quarter-Final.
