A Week To Remember For Scutt

Recap – A Week To Remember For Scutt

Team Mission’s Connor Scutt enjoyed a memorable few days on the oche last week as he won the British Pentathlon and his first PDC title.

‘The Sniper’ caught the eye in the British Pentathlon in North Devon on Thursday, throwing four scores of 180 in a row during one leg of 1001.

Scutt racked up 473 points to win the title and join a roll of honour which includes Eric Bristow, John Lowe and Phil Taylor.

It was a Mission one-two in the men’s event with Tavis Dudeney making a late push to finish in second place with 392 points.

On Saturday, Scutt claimed his second title of the week as he won Event 13 on the Challenge Tour with a series of impressive performances.

The 28-year-old posted four 100+ averages on the spin, including a 109.93 average in his quarter-final success over Bradley Brooks.

After edging past former world champion Richie Burnett 5-4 in the semi-finals, Scutt whitewashed Dragutin Horvat in the decider to clinch the £2,500 top prize.

There was a strong contingent of Mission players in Leicester for the third weekend of the Challenge Tour season, with Cam Crabtree impressing with a run to the semi-finals of Event 11.

Scutt showed early promise by making the last eight in the opening event of the weekend, whilst Germany’s Dominik Gruellich broke new ground with his maiden Challenge Tour quarter-final in Event 15.

Meanwhile, Thomas Banks came out on top in a high-quality final against Jenson Walker to win the England Open boys title on Sunday.

‘The Bulldog’ checked out 112 to force a deciding leg before securing the victory with a 13-dart leg against the throw in the decider.

In the men’s events, Matthew Edgar continued his push for Lakeside with a pair of quarter-finals in the England Open and England National Singles.

Fresh from her victory in the first ever MODUS Super Series Women’s Week, Rhian O’Sullivan made the final of the England Open and the last eight of the England National Singles.

On Friday night, Team Mission’s Madars Razma and Dennis Nilsson took to the stage for the Nordic Darts Masters – the PDC’s annual stop in Scandinavia on the World Series of Darts.

Razma lost out 6-2 to the eventual champion Gerwyn Price, whilst Nilsson was beaten 6-3 by Dimitri Van den Bergh in a tie which saw the pair fire in nine 180s between them.
