Smith leads 1 set to 0 Second Set - Smith 2:1 Lennon Smith starts this one with a maximum, and then on his next visit puts the second dart into the end of the first! Lennon gets a 180 of his own, but Smith hits d12 to keep the pressure on Lennon to hold.

Smith leads 2 sets to 0 Second Set - Smith 3:1 Lennon Wow - Smith was scoring well but Lennon was just about keeping his nose in front - then Smith takes out a 150 to steal the set! Impressive stuff, if a little inconsistent...

Smith leads 2 sets to 0 Third Set - Smith 0:1 Lennon Nice leg for Lennon to start the set, only needed the one dart at d20 too. An uphill struggle though.

Smith leads 2 sets to 0 Third Set - Smith 0:2 Lennon That’ll help. Break of throw for Lennon, double top again as Smith just missed bull. A 3-0 set for Lennon would make things interesting.

Smith leads 2 sets to 0 Third Set - Smith 0:3 Lennon Sixth 180 for Smith, but he can’t hit d15 to finish off the 90 out. Lennon misses d16 though to give him another chance - but Smith can’t finish off 30. They then both miss small finishes, before both ending up on d1! Lennon eventually does the job to win the set.

Smith leads 2 sets to 1 Fourth Set - Smith 1:0 Lennon Maximum start for Smith, looks keen to get the job done in this set - nearly takes out 130 on the bull, comes back to tidy up 25.

Smith leads 2 sets to 1 Fourth Set - Smith 2:0 Lennon Both players have good tries at 100+ out shots. Lennon then misses the small remainder he left, and Smith doesn’t. A leg away from victory.

Smith leads 2 sets to 1 Fourth Set - Smith 2:1 Lennon Lennon stays alive after some average stuff from Smith. Thought the chance had gone, but was able to break back with d8.

Smith leads 2 sets to 1 Fourth Set - Smith 2:2 Lennon Excellent leg from Lennon, 12 darter. He’s hanging on here, but still in it.

Match level, 2 sets all Fourth Set - Smith 2:3 Lennon Smith falling apart a little here, really poor scoring as Lennon keeps plugging away, and Lennon starting to look the favourite now. Smith needs to get going here.
