Bell and Lynn go through.

DARTS ANDY Lynn, Joe Gaffney, Paul Bell and Arthur Dobey fought it out for the latest two qualifying spots for the Mark Williams Memorial Competition's finals night.

Against Gaffney, Lynn took the first leg with scores of 135, 137 and an 86 checkout with a bullseye in 18 darts.

Scores of 81, 100, 140, 140 and double top put Gaffney on level terms with a 15-dart leg.

However, totals of 140, 83 and 134 scores in a 17 -dart game put Lynn back into the lead - only for Gaffney to roar back with 180, 140 and 130 shots in 17 darts.

The experience of Lynn eventually proved decisive, firing in two tons and a 140 in a 19-dart winning game to claim a finals -night place.

The second final featured Bell and Dobey, Dobey taking a nervous first leg in 20 darts.

There was to be nothing nervous about the rest of the match, though, as Dobey powered in scores of 100, 95, 140, 134 and double 16 in a 14-dart game to go 2-0 up.

Two 140s, an 80 and a 96 in a 16-dart leg put Bell back in contention.

With a fabulous 12-dart game of 140, 125, 125 and a 111 checkout he tied the game . Bell then went on to secure his place on finals night with an 18-dart winning game including 82, 180, 100 and 83 scores.
