The Scottish Darts Association’s flagship tournament, the Winmau Scottish Open, held at the Normandy Hotel since 1999, kicked off the first of five tournaments with the Open Triples on Friday night. Battling through an entry of over 100 teams the first semi-final was contested by the Cleveland Bellends (Allan Edwards, Claire Stainsby and Barry Davies) and PC Plods (Lisa Ashton, Lindsey Ashton and Paul Higgins). The Bellenders progressed 3-0 to the final where they met the winners of the Geds (Brian Welsh, Wayne Shepherd and Chloe O’Brien) from Perthshire who played Two Blue Sox and a Red Sox (Euan Callander, Brian Woods and Chrissie Manley). The various Sox players won the semi 3-1 giving us a final between the Bellends and the Sox, with the Cleveland trio triumphing 4-1.

                   

Almost a thousand entrants battled through to the last eight of the Mens Singles where Scotland’s Mark Barilli defeated Paul Hogan from

England 5-1, Cody Harris from New Zealand defeated Welsh player Nick Kenny 5-4, Dutch star Wesley Harms beat Scots teen sensation Nathan Girvan 5-1 and finally English player Jamie Caven beat Wayne Warren from Wales 5-2. Also reaching the last 16 from Scotland was Ryan Hogarth while Graham Cummings, Joe Devlin, Jared Rafferty, Neil MacDougall, and Steve Ritchie made the last 32. At the semi-final stage the former two times winner of the SDA Masters, Mark Barilli took on New Zealander Cody Harris. The match went to the New Zealander 5-0 but the scoreline belied the quality of the match as both players hit 177 and Mark had a maximum. Cody’s winning average was 31.71 while Mark had a 28.63 average. The second semi-final pitted former Scottish Open champion Wesley Harms from the Netherlands against England’s Jamie Caven with Wesley progressing 5-3 with the aid of three 180’s and a 130 checkout. The players shared the opening two legs before Wesley took three in a row to lead 4-1 before Jamie pulled the score back to 4-3. In the eighth leg Wes checked out 130 on the bull to take his place in the final, ending with a 28.00 average compared to Jamie’s 25.69 average. In the best of eleven final Wes started well with a maximum in the opening leg to lead 1-0 and checked out 111 in the second to double his lead. Cody fought back strongly with a 119 checkout on the bullseye to take the third leg only to see Wesley strike back to win the fourth leg. Wesley went further ahead by taking the fifth leg with the aid of a 180 and then started leg six with another maximum, going on to take the leg to lead 5-1. Cody then produced three consecutive 140’s in leg seven to reduce the deficit to 5-2 before taking leg eight to take the score to 5-3. Wesley wired a 136 checkout for the match only to see Cody steady his nerves to take the ninth leg and claw back the difference to just one leg. Wesley had another match dart in the tenth leg but could only watch as Cody nailed double sixteen to take the final to a deciding leg. 2013 champion, Wesley hit a 180 in the eleventh leg followed by a 171 to set up double twelve for the title and duly obliged to win his second Scottish Open. Wesley finished the final with a 32.83 average compared to 30.91 for Cody. In the first Ladies Singles semi-final World No.1 Lisa Ashton took on the five times previous champion Deta Hedman. The match started with a 13 dart leg for Lisa and then both players took a leg each up to 3-3 before Lisa surged ahead taking the match with a double top checkout at 5-3. Lisa’s average for the match was 26.04 while Deta returned a 25.44 single dart average. She would be joined in the final by the 2017 champion Fallon Sherrock who defeated Maria O’Brien 5-2. Fallon took the opening leg against the darts with a 76 checkout and Maria levelled the match in the second before going 2-1 ahead with a treble 18/double 18 finish on 90. Despite both players having chances to finish subsequent legs, Fallon took the next four to get the better of her opponent. In the final Lisa started strongly and with the help of a 180 took the leg in 13 darts and despite some lacklustre finishing made it 2-0 after the second leg. The Lancashire Rose was again caught napping with poor finishing as Fallon checked out 112 to pull the score back to 2-1. Lisa took the fourth leg to stretch her lead to 3-1 and then started leg five with a maximum and duly took the leg with the help of a second 180 and double 8. This left Lisa just one leg away from a first ever Scottish Open Ladies title. With a 15 dart leg Lisa took the title to finish with a 28.34 average while Fallon had to be content with 23.90. The losing quarter finalists in the Ladies Singles were England players Roz Bulmer and Kirsty Hutchison with Anastasia Dobromyslova from Russia, the four-times winner and reigning champion along with Tricia Wright who won the tournament in 2001 and 2009. Scotland’s best performance came from Ayrshire’s Lorraine Hyde who lost 4-2 in the last sixteen to England’s Fallon Sherrock. Grampian players Christine Hyde, Louise Paterson and Sharon Leslie reached the last 32 along with Chelsea McMahon from Fife.

                    
In the Mens Pairs the first semi-final was a Scotland v Netherlands clash as Cameron Menzies & Ryan Hogarth took on Martijn Kleermaker & Chris Landman. The match went all the way and it was the Dutch pair who triumphed 3-2 to book their place in the final. In the other last four clash Aaron Turner & Simon Stainton took on Dogo Portela & Cody Harris. Brazilian Portelo and Harris from New Zealand took the match 3-1 and would now play Kleermaker and Landman for the Scottish Open Pairs title. In the final Chris and Martijn started with a 12 dart leg which was quickly levelled by Cody Harris in the second leg. The third leg went to the Brazil/New Zealand combo but Chris Landman ensured it would go all the way with a double five checkout. The deciding leg saw Dogo Portela finish 87 to take the title against the Dutch International duo. The champions team average was 28.07 with the runners-up hitting 29.11. Cody becomes the second player from the Southern Hemisphere to take a Scottish Open title following the first Singles champion Russell Stewart while Dogo is the first Brazilian player to feature in the winning roll. Losing quarter-finalists were Paul Hogan & Jason Heaver, Mark Graham & Mark Warburton, Wesley Harms & Richard Veenstra and Kevin Mills & Antony Freeman.

                      
The first ladies Pairs semi-final featured Maria O’Brien & Lisa Ashton versus Anne Marie Potts & Linda Ithurralde where Maria & Lisa won the match 3-1. In the second semi-final Beau Greaves & Deta Hedman would face Christine Savvery & Jan Robbins and it was Beau and Deta that won 3-1. In the final history was created as Beau Greaves became the youngest ever SDA Open finalist at the age of 15, partnering Deta Hedman to a 3-2 victory over Lisa Ashton and Maria O’Brien. The match came alive in the third leg as first Beau hit a maximum and then Maria did the same giving the large crowd something to cheer about.
