Hughes wins PDC Home Tour Group 24 after perfect night with clean sweep of victories
Jamie Hughes has claimed victory in PDC Home Tour Group 24 after a perfect night with a clean sweep of victories for the former European Tour winner.
Hughes' path to victory in the latest action in the PDC Home Tour was changed initially after Darius Labanauskas had technical difficulties which saw him not able to locate the DartConnect website. He then faced Krzysztof Ratajski as a result 5-3 then faced 'Lucky D' and claimed a repeat scoreline.
'Yozza' finalised his group win with a 5-4 victory over Toni Alcinas to make it six points from a possible six and as a result, Ratajski went into the final match not playing for anything.
He finished second though after a 5-3 win over Darius Labanauskas with the latter missing 18 darts at double en route.
Every evening, the four players will each face off; with each match being the best of nine legs. This group stage lasts 32 days with that amount of players set to reach the next round to play it out from there to crown a winner.
All players have webcams set up in their houses and say their scores out loud; to make sure that they can be inputted correctly without any cheating taking place.
With each night’s action commencing at 1930 BST, darts commentator Dan Dawson will be on hand to talk through proceedings; which will also include live score graphics on screen.
In addition all live-scores can be followed on DartConnect; with match statistics being available after every match.
