Day #2 at the 2016 Lakeside World Darts Championships saw two Harlequin Stars take to the stage – last year’s finalist Fallon Sherrock, and 9-time World Champion, Trina Gulliver MBE.
Fallon took to the stage in the afternoon session live on BBC, off the back of a number of big wins throughout 2015, including the Finder Masters. Fallon started in fine form, with a number of 180’s and big scores, taking the first set. However her opposition, Denmark’s Ann-Louise Peters, battled back to cause a shock and win the match 2-1.
In the evening it was The Golden Girl’s turn, as Trina Gulliver MBE took on Dee Bateman. Trina started the game well and won the opening set. Dee became more comfortable on the famous Lakeside stage as the game progressed, and equaled game 1-1. The match was destined to go all the way, with Trina having to fight back in the 3rd set to take the game to a deciding leg. The 9-time World Champion did not disappoint and won the vital bull-up in the 5th leg and went on to seal the win.
Well done to Harlequin Icon, Trina Gulliver MBE on progressing to the next round, she will face former-Harlequin star, Lisa Ashton.
