Unsurprisingly, Barney's average slipped, but his finishing remained pretty deadly. He's in complete control for now.

Back underway, Barney has the darts. Hot hot hot favourite from here.

Ooft, North looking at 170, gets the two T20 easily, misses bull by miles... No messing from Barney. 1-0

North shooting at 164, leaves 28. Barney wants 156. Leaves 96.

North can't find a double. Barney can... D4. He wanted D18

Finally. Just a 2nd successful double from 12 tries for North. 1-1

Barney has six from 121.... almost does it 3, just misses D8. Doesn't miss it next time up. 13 dart leg. 2-1

North buries a 4th 180. He's not been bad, Barney has just been that bit more consistent

Barney first to a finish, against the darts. 131 would end it. Only 57 scored. North on 135. Leaves tops

Two match darts at D16 go awry. North stretches the game out with tops. 2-2
