History-Maker Fallon Sherrock Eliminated From World Darts Championship

History-Maker Fallon Sherrock Eliminated From World Darts Championship

Fallon Sherrock's history-making run at the World Darts Championship has ended in the third round with defeat to Chris Dobey.

The number 22 seed came from behind to win the match 4-2.

Sherrock, who earlier this month became the first woman to win a match at the championships, led 1-0 and 2-1. Dobey claimed the last three sets to take the victory.

"I needed to be at my best," Dobey told Sky Sports.

I wasn't doing anything wrong during the game and I was 1-0 and 2-1 down and I was like, 'How am I getting beaten here?'

She's been absolutely astonishing and she fully deserved all this support.

Sherrock's scoring was inconsistent throughout but she papered over the cracks early on with some remarkable finishing which Dobey could not match. As the match rolled on, Dobey's higher scoring became the difference.

Dobey will play Glen Durrant in the fourth round after he beat Daryl Gurney on Friday afternoon.

"I have enjoyed myself so much," said Sherrock, who next week plays in the BDO Women's World Championships.

"I didn't think this was ever possible. This is amazing and hopefully I can experience it again."
