Humphries continues title defence with 109 average against Aspinall as Wade ends Van Veen's World Matchplay hopes

James Wade put an end to Gian van Veen's strong tournament at the European Darts Matchplay on Sunday night. This also allowed the Dutchman to draw a line on the World Matchplay, which required a title in Trier.

However, Van Veen started the match promisingly. Finishes of 62 and 94 gave the 21-year-old dart player a 3-0 lead. In the sixth leg, however, he missed four chances to maintain the lead. Wade then levelled the match with a double 10.

Wade then broke Van Veen with a 12-darter, before 'The Machine' took advantage of another miss by Van Veen on the double. The left-handed darter then pulled off the 6-3 victory with a 15-darter.

Luke Humphries then became the last semifinalist at the European Darts Matchplay. Thanks to an average of over 109, he convincingly defeated Nathan Aspinall 6-2.

In the semifinals, Humphries and Wade face each other. The other semifinal is between Joe Cullen and Dirk van Duijvenbode. Later in the evening, the final will also be played.
