Michael Smith was 5-2 and 6-3 up hitting multiple 10 darters and averaging 120 but couldn’t seal the deal with Gerwyn Price coming back to seal a brilliant draw as the action continues at the Premier League in Nottingham.
Price reeled off four consecutive legs in a thriller which included eight 180’s. His average ended up at 98.11 with Smith further down than the middle of the match at 101.7. ‘Bully Boy’ wasn’t too disheartened after the match though despite fluffing his lines.
Smith produced an incredible start to proceedings going seven darts into a nine-darter to lead 2-1 as he really began to motor to start the game off.
‘Bully Boy’ smashed in a 140 from there to extend his lead to 3-1 and his brilliant darts continued from there as he hit a fifth 180 en route to a second 10 darter of the match to make it 4-2. All while averaging a mind blowing 120.
Price made a silly error and fluffed his lines when finishing and this allowed Smith to go one away from a guaranteed point with a break of throw.
