King breezes past Lennon in straight sets to set up Smith tie in PDC World Darts Championship Last 16
A 92 average, three 180's and two ton plus checkouts saw 'The King' march on at the Palace and he will now have a great opportunity to potentially make it to at least the Quarter-Finals.
King pounced on a slow start from Lennon on the doubles to clinch the opening set 3-1 with five missed darts coming from ‘Scuba Steve’ which allowed ‘The King’ to make inroads into the tie.
This control was extended for King as he upped his game and pinned double six for a 2-0 lead also claiming the second set 3-1. He broke throw in the requisite set as he looked to deal Lennon a real blow going into what could have been the final set.
A 72 checkout was pinned on double four. Lennon went up 2-0 in the next set as he looked to revive his fortunes but King hit back taking out 101 to go one away from victory at 2-2.
King couldn’t take out 106 but Lennon couldn’t produce 52 and King was throwing at double four for the match which he took first time to claim the win.
