Ritchie Edhouse Mission Darts

Weekend Recap - Edhouse Reaches Quarter-Finals In Riesa

It was a weekend to remember for Ritchie Edhouse as he enjoyed a run to the quarter-finals of the International Darts Open in Riesa.

Using the Mission Force 90 integrated flight and stem system, ‘Madhouse’ posted 100+ averages in wins against former world champions Michael Smith and Rob Cross, before being edged out 6-5 by Stephen Bunting in the last eight.

Edhouse took out an incredible 160 finish in the deciding leg of his second-round clash with Smith, before firing in a 103.49 average in a 6-4 triumph over Cross as he made the final session of a European Tour event for the first time since 2018.

Josh Rock lost out in a last-leg decider 6-5 to Cameron Menzies in the second round on Saturday, whilst Lee Evans and Dylan Slevin, who were both late call-ups to the event, lost their opening games on the Friday.

Meanwhile, Team Mission was well represented at the British Internationals in Glenrothes at the weekend.

Cam Crabtree and Tavis Dudeney helped England to win the Men’s title, and Sam Jackson played his part in the title-winning campaign for the England Boys’ team.

Llew Bevan took home the Chairman’s Cup for player of the tournament, whilst Rhian O’Sullivan and Kyle Davidson tasted victories on the oche for Wales Ladies and Scotland Boys over the weekend.

Elsewhere, Viktor Tingstrom narrowly missed out on a place in the Week 7 final of the MODUS Super Series on Saturday night. The Swede was in impressive form in Portsmouth as he won Group A to qualify for the six-player finale, where he lost out 4-3 to Colin Osborne in the semi-finals.

Archie Self leads the way at the halfway point of the JDC Advanced Tour after winning two titles at the weekend.

The 14-year-old won Events 6 and 8 to take a one-point lead at the top of the rankings, which includes an all-Mission top three with Kieran Thompson (21 points) and Daniel Stephenson (19) close behind.

Thompson sits in second place after winning Event 5, getting the better of Jack Marshall 6-2 in the final. Meanwhile, Lauren Stokoe reached a pair of quarter-finals on the JDC Girls Series.

Xiaochen Zong retained the PDC China Premier League title with an 11-1 victory against Chengan Liu in the play-off final on Sunday.

‘The Pandaman’ will team up with Liu to represent China in the PDC World Cup of Darts in Frankfurt this summer.
