DOUBLE SUCCESS FOR WALTON AND GULLIVER
18 YEAR JAMES WADE CREATES A NEAR SENSATION
Trina Gulliver and John Walton showed once
again just why they are the number.1 players in Both the WDF World and the
BDO International Rankings.
Both John and Tina took the honours in the prestigious British Classic titles with a run of great games towards the end of the event to eventually take the titles of Champions, yet again.
However the Sensation of the tournament and also of the year so far is undoubtedly Hampshires 18 year old James Wade who fought his way through a tough field to meet Walton in the final and after some terrific games it took the reigning World Champion to put a stop to this youngsters run, but only after Wade had given him one or two frights did Walton emerge the winner by 2 sets to nil.
A brilliant effort on Wades part and without doubt the man of the match.
Losing semi finalists were :
Mike Veitch (Scot) and Ronnie Baxter (Eng)
Losing Quarter finalists were :
Shaun Greatbach, Wayne Mardle and Buster Ford (Eng) and Gary Anderson (Scot)
Trina came up against an old adversary in the shape of Belgiums Vicky Pruim and despite some excellant play from the Belgium girl it was not to be as Trina once again fought off all opposition to well and truly establish her position as the number 1 world ladies player.
Losing semi finalist were :
Karen Smith and Sonia Duffy (Eng)
Losing Quarter Finalists were :
Sally Smith and Nadine Bentley (Eng) Karen Krappen (Neth) Carina Ekberg (Swe)
NEW ZEALAND OPEN
ALAN THOMPSON AND MARION MORGAN TAKE THE NZ TITLES
In a competition almost totally dominated by Kiwi's it was no surprise really that the titles of Champions of New Zealand would probably go to a local.
Alan Thompson who currently holds his position
in the New Zealand International line was indeed always going to be one of
the favourites and he did indeed through some fine play justify this.
Thompson took to the final against fellow Kiwi Cody Harris and with a few good finishing shots combined with high scores and steady play ran out the winner, leaving Harris having to settle for second place.
Losing semi finalists :
Rob Grant and Alan Bolton
Losing Quarter finalists :
John Hereora -- Cyndrick Joyce -- Herbie Nathan -- Barry Whittaker
All New Zealand

TAYLOR TAKES MONTREAL
3RD ANNUAL QUEBEC OPEN - BILLIARD LE SKRATCH SARANTOS RETSINAS MEMORIAL $25,000
Phil Taylor put his recent court case worries behind him with a win over Peter Manley in the final of the Quebec Open 2001 While Crissy Howatt successfully defended her crown.
MENS FINAL : Phil (The Power) Taylor defeated the defending champion, Manley, in quick order 3 sets to nil, preventing Manley from taking a single leg. “Taylor takes a 147 finish in my best leg,” Manley commented. “How can you beat that? I played well, he was just better.” Taylor was pleased with the outcome and hopes to defend his title next year: “It was a wonderful tournament. Of course it’s always wonderful when I win,”
Semi Finals: The Taylor Priestley match
was brilliant to watch with both players shooting well. Taylor took a 2 sets
to 1 lead and opened the 4th set with 137, 95, 99 leaving a 170 after just
9 darts. After twelve darts, Priestley was resting on 184. Taylor came to
the line and stroked 60, 60 and instead of throwing the bull for the win,
he hit the 10 to leave 40. One dart later, Taylor put away a 13 darter. When
asked why he didn’t try for the 170 finish, Taylor commented, “I passed on
the 170 finish because Dennis wasn’t on a finish.
I gave myself three darts at double on my next turn.” Taylor finished the match on the next leg to advance to the finals.
In the second semi final, Lazarenko having advanced by the narrowest of margins into the last 16 and a clean sweep in the last 8. 'One Dart' Manley, however, was not about to give up his title defense without serious effort. With match level at one set each, Manley was not as sharp on the doubles as his nick name implies. He was not Mr One Dart, but still was not imminent danger of losing. Manley just increased his scoring average to compensate for missed doubles and he went on the defeat Big Cliff 3 sets to 1.
Last Eight: Cliff Lazarenko continued
with an impressive victory over Rod Harrington. Big Cliff must have gained
some confidence from his match with Valcourt as he continued to put up big
scores and take his out shot opportunities. Harrington was scoring well, but
had to be perfect on his doubles because Lazarenko offered no quarter. Andy
Jenkins had been playing very well throughout the tournament when he came
up against an in form Dennis Priestley of old.
Manley and Baxter both play fast and the match was over in quick order with Manley the victor taking 3 sets to Baxter’s 1. “I went one set up and had darts to go two sets to nil, but I started missing doubles,” Baxter commented. Taylor had no trouble dispatching Stoddart 3 set to nil on the other side of the bracket to advance to the semi finals.

THE LADIES FINAL : Pitted the defending champion, Chrissy Howat, against Guylaine Levesque, the local favorite. Howat was all business on stage taking the best of 3 sets 2 nil while Levesque was unable to win a single leg. “It’s nice to retain the title, and hopefully carry on at Saskatoon next week and retain that one too,” commented Howat. “I had a tough group, but only lost one game, but still came out top of my group. I played Rani Gill in the semi finals and she gave me a good run for my money.”
In the quarter finals, Chrissy Howat defeated France Lavoie, Rani Gill defeated Tina Phillips, Catherine Sergerie beat Lise Filiatrault and Guylaine Levesque bested Tina DiGregorio. Howat, the defending champion, showed great form as she saw off Gill 2 sets to nil in the first semi final. Levesque had a bit harder time defeating Sergerie in her semi final, 2 sets to 1.
