Fallon Sherrock found his form to crush Darius Labanauskas at Nordic Masters

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.

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.
