Dogsthorpe darter Dennis Harbour failed in his bid to defend the Isle of Man Open title yesterday (March 13) but Deeping ace Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams reached the last four.
Harbour went out at the last 32 stage, going down 4-3 to Jimmy Hendriks, while number two seed Adams went three rounds further before losing 5-1 to Ryan Joyce.
Adams, who pocketed a cheque for £600, threw some brilliant darts early on in the competition, especially in the quarter-finals where he beat Mark McGeeney 4-1 with a 37.11 dart average.
The event was won by Tony O’Shea, who beat Royce 6-4 in the final.
Harbour also entered the Isle Of Man Classic competition and made the last 16 before suffering a 4-1 exit at the hands of Glen Durrant. Scott Mitchell beat Geert de Vos 6-2 in the final.
