Dutch Darts Championship: Michael van Gerwen delights home crowd with whitewash

Michael van Gerwen advanced into the last 16 of the Dutch Darts Championship as he whitewashed Kevin Doets 6-0 in front of his home crowd.

Peter Wright crashed out after he failed to beat Cameron Menzies in an all-Scottish affair.

Menzies remarkably won five straight legs to knock out the multiple world champion 6-3.

Gerwyn Price was also on form as he booked his place in the next round with a dominant 6-0 win over Mickey Mansell.

Price will now face Gian van Veen who defeated Dom Taylor 6-5 in a close contest.

Reigning champion Dave Chisnall kicked off his title defence with a resounding 6-2 success against Niels Zonneveld, averaging over 100 to advance to a last 16 showdown against Jonny Clayton.

Clayton defied five 180s from Host Nation Qualifier Marvin van Velzen to seal his progress, while Ryan Searle reeled off four straight legs to dump out James Wade with a ton-topping average.

Searle now plays Dutch-born Swede Jeffrey de Graaf, who was the first player to move through to the last 16 in Rosmalen, courtesy of a 6-3 victory over Masters champion Stephen Bunting.

Ritchie Edhouse converted 150 and 164 checkouts to deny second seed Damon Heta in an extraordinary tussle to continue his impressive European Tour form this year, after Luke Woodhouse averaged 99 to end Daryl Gurney's hopes of World Cup qualification.

Germany's Martin Schindler defied a 145 checkout from Brendan Dolan to maintain his hopes of a second European Tour win of 2024 with a 6-4 second round success as he moves through to meet Van den Bergh.

Northern Irish number one Josh Rock impressed with an average of 104.83 as he overcame Dirk van Duijvenbode 6-3 - taking a 3-0 lead before holding on to that advantage.
