Fermanagh Man Rips It Up To Make Third Round At The Darts

Even having a marriage proposal in the crowd during his second round match at The Darts could not take Brendan Dolan's eye off the prize.

The Fermanagh man easily progressed to the next round at the PDC World Championships with a 3-0 win against the 14th seeded Joe Cullen.

As in his opening round match against Yuanjun Liu, Dolan lost just one leg on his way to victory.

Dolan took a 2-0 lead before Cullen won his first leg of the third set. The 45-year-old from Belcoo went on to claim the final set 3-1.

Dolan also hit the first 170 checkout of the tournament.

Dolan will face the winner of Jann Decker and Mervyn King in the third round.

It has been a good tournament for Irish players so far with Carlow's Steve Lennon, Limerick's Willie O'Connor and Derry's Daryl Gurney all still in contention.
