Defending champion Michael van Gerwen survived a scare as he edged out Gerwyn Price in a nervy last-leg shootout, whilst world champion Gary Anderson was beaten on home soil by Joe Cullen in the World Series of Darts Finals at the Braehead Arena in Glasgow on Saturday evening.

World number one Michael van Gerwen was made to sweat as he came through a first-round last-leg decider for the second event running. ‘The Green Machine’ fired in six maximums and averaged 98.82, almost twelve points higher than Price.

Van Gerwen led 5-2, but Price won three successive legs to force a last-leg decider, although MvG held throw comfortably in the final leg. Price was unable to replicate his performance from Saturday afternoon, where he hit six of his seven double attempts to defeat Steve Beaton 6-3.
