Fallon Sherrock demolishes ‘Lucky D’ Darius Labanauskas 6-1 – including an impressive 142 to reach the Nordic Masters quarter-finals; Sherrock was a runner-up when hosting last year’s tournament in Copenhagen

Fallon Sherrock beat Lithuanian Darius Labanauskas 6-1 to reach the Nordic Masters quarter-finals on Friday.
Grand Slam quarter-finalist Sherrock, runner-up at the inaugural tournament in Copenhagen last year, averaged 80 and notched a stunning 142 en route to a stunning victory.
‘The Palace Queen’ has bounced back from his disappointing early exit at last week’s US Darts Masters to Leonard Gates to advance to the last eight and a potential meeting with top seed Michael Smith if ‘Bully Boy’ can see Denmark Vladimir Andersen.
Fallon Sherrock says she’s happy to inspire a generation of female players to take up the sport
Sherrock was beaten by Van Gerwen in a thrilling final 12 months ago, after producing a remarkable 8-2 comeback to stun Dimitri Van den Bergh in the semi-final.
The 27-year-old, who hopes those positive memories can inspire another dream run in Copenhagen, took a 4-1 lead against former World Championship quarter-finalist Labanauskas before notching a 142 (T20, T20, D11) .
Labanauskas, who missed a total of 16 double darts, was broken again in the very next round as Sherrock struck out 85 for a stunning win.
Saturday’s second day of action will see the quarter-finals take place in the afternoon, followed by a blockbuster evening session with the semi-finals and final.
