Boxer Dave Allen KOs sporting stars to win Darts At Home competition
Last Updated: 16/05/20 8:21pm
Boxer Dave Allen overcame the star-studded field of snooker's Mark Selby, golf's Andrew 'Beef' Johnston and cricket's Alex Hales to win the PDC's Darts at Home: Sportsman Special.
The event was all in aid of NHS Charities Together, as the athletes from various codes stepped up to the oche for a good cause.
The format was played as best-of-three legs, and each leg was played from 301.
'The Doncaster De La Hoya' made it three wins from three in the contest, dropping just one leg en route to the victory.
|Andrew Johnston 0-2 Alex Hales|
|Mark Selby 0-2 Dave Allen|
|Alex Hales 0-2 Dave Allen|
|Andrew Johnston 1-2 Mark Selby|
|Dave Allen 2-1 Andrew Johnston|
|Mark Selby 0-2 Alex Hales|
But it was not the boxer who boasted the moment of the afternoon, as Hales hit an eight-darter to finish off the 301. The England cricketer hit 100, 140, 61 in a stunning leg against Selby in the last game of the afternoon, but it was a case of too-little, too-late as Allen already had the group wrapped up.
