Modus Icons of Darts: Askew does the double with clean sweep on Day Four
Jason Askew secured the Modus Icons of Darts Live League Phase Three double on Thursday afternoon, adding to his success two days beforehand.
Askew has started scintillatingly well as Phase Three of the innovation has commenced, losing just once and clinching the title on both days Pool B players have taken to the oche.
The UK Open qualifier reigned supreme on Day Four courtesy of six successive victories, and opened his bid with a 5-3 win over Mark Webster – who ran out victorious on the same day of last week.
Askew then converted five of his seven attempts on the doubles and clocked a 96.28 average in edging past former world champion Scott Mitchell in a deciding leg thriller, before defeating Keelan Kay with another excellent display in the finishing department.
Saturday’s winner Andy Jenkins was next to be added to Askew’s growing haul of impressive scalps, prior to the Surrey star coming through a high-quality affair with Russian number one Boris Koltsov.
Despite Askew emerging as a comfortable 5-1 victor, both men performed superbly as Koltsov recorded a 101.06 average compared to his opponent’s scintillating 103.11.
Koltsov’s heavy defeat in his concluding match had a detrimental effect on his leg difference, meaning he finished in fourth place below Askew, Jenkins and Webster.
Former World Championship semi-finalist Jenkins registered the most prolific performance of the day as he averaged a remarkable 105.85 and executed five of his seven shots at double in a flawless showing.
Phase Three of the Modus Icons of Darts Live League resumes on Friday as nine-dart hero Martin Adams returns to action after celebrating his 64th birthday on Thursday.
