The 2016 Lakeside World Championship Ladies Final capped off a fantastic week of darts for Harlequin Icon, Trina Gulliver MBE.
It was a dream title victory for either player, Trina, as 9-time World Champion looking for a record 10th title, or Deta Hedman who was searching for her debut win on the stage.
The game was best of 5 sets, and Deta took the first to take the early inititive, checking out on 118, but Trina hit straight back to level the match 1-1 with an out shot of 133.
Despite the Golden Girl continuing to play well, Hedman took the lead once more, knowing that a win in the 4th set would seal her maiden title. However, Trina was resilient once more, showing she had the ‘fire’ inside her to go on to win a history making 10th title, and squared up the game 2-2.
The Golden Girl was in emphatic form, and broke Deta’s thrown in the deciding leg, before going on to hit double 18 to seal her dream 10th title, and picking up the trophy with the loyal Lakeside crowd chanting her name.
We are absolutely delighted for Trina Gulliver, and look forward to the year ahead as her proud Official Shirt Supplier.
