Pinned

Thornton 1 - 2 Dolan Oh sensational from Dolan to rescue the leg! Thornton's 136 leaves tops for a break and Dolan is back on 124 but he brilliantly checks it out on D14 to save the leg.

Both men averaging a few points above 100 thus far. Good contest.

Thornton 2 - 2 Dolan Solid hold. Thornton scores well and Dolan needs to take out a 170 with Thornton waiting on 36. He fails to find the treble he needs and Thornton is back with no problems to hold. Deciding leg needed.

Thornton 3 - 2 Dolan Sensational from the Scot!! He blows Dolan away in that leg with some heavy scoring and a terrific bull-tops 90 checkout in two darts to break the throw and win the set. He's averaging 113. Long may it continue. First set to Thornton. 1-0 he leads.

Game on. Thornton with the throw in the 2nd set.

Thornton (1) 0 - 1 (0) Dolan Break!! Thornton misses tops for a 117 checkout and Dolan pounces with a brilliant 126 finish on the bull. Been a great start to this game.

Thornton all over the place in leg two. 41 follows 28

Thornton (1) 0 - 2 (0) Dolan And Dolan punishes that poor form to win the league at ease. 104 checkout for Dolan who is finishing brilliantly. Hold of throw.

Thornton (1) 0 - 3 (0) Dolan And that's the set! Scoring from both players off in that final leg but Dolan is able to finish 100 in two darts to break the Thornton throw and whitewash the second set. Great fightback from Dolan but looks like Thornton left his form in the toilet during the ad break between those sets. Thornton 1 - 1 Dolan.

Well poised then. Back to back sets to come now as well. Dolan on throw. Both sets have gone against the darts thus far.
