The first two players through to the second day of action at the International Darts Open in Riesa are Harry Ward and William O’Connor.

Ward secured his first ever win on the European Tour with a 6-4 win over Reece Robinson. It doesn’t get easier though for ‘Big H’ as he takes on the in-form Mensur Suljovic who will be one of the players to watch this weekend with Michael van Gerwen not involved.

O’Connor on the other hand saw off the returning Benito van de Pas who couldn’t continue his form from the weekend losing out 6-4. ‘The Magpie’ averaged 92 with high checkouts of 147 and 94 en route as the Irishman attempts to also continue his form that he showed last weekend in Mannheim.
