Modus Live League Phase Four: Andy Jenkins takes title on Day Four
Andy Jenkins won his first four games of the day to do enough to collect the Day Four title ahead of Mike Warburton as the Icons of Darts Phase Four continued.
The same set of players competed online on Tuesday with David Evans coming out on top, but after he won his first three matches on Thursday to continue an incredible run, Scott Mitchell edged him out in a decider to give Jenkins the chance to capitalise.
The former PDC World Championship semi-finalist had got off to a flyer with three straight wins for the loss of just five legs, and beat ‘Scotty Dog’ 5-4 in the day’s penultimate contest to seal another title.
The league began with a closely-fought win for Ritchie Edhouse over Mark Webster with both players averaging in the mid 90s, before Evans averaged 101.5 in a 5-2 success over ‘Madhouse’.
Webster came agonisingly close again, but went down 5-4 to Evans, while Edhouse whitewashed an out of sorts Mitchell before losing 5-2 to Jenkins.
Jenkins got his day underway with a scrappy 5-2 victory over Webster, with Evans strengthening his position at the summit courtesy of a 5-3 win against Warburton with an average of 96.7.
Mitchell improved markedly from his opener, and saw off Evans in a deciding leg with 5/7 on the doubles.
Another close game saw Edhouse edge out Warburton, before Mitchell produced another finishing masterclass against Webster.
‘Jenks’ then showed impeccable timing to go to the brink of the title by denying a 101 average from Evans, who also checked out 170.
Warburton moved on to six points by seeing off Mitchell 5-2, and the former BDO World Champion finished off a disappointing day with a 5-4 defeat to Jenkins, which handed the latter the title.
He couldn’t complete the clean sweep as he went down to Warburton in the day’s final contest, but it was a pleasing result for ‘Jenks’ who adds to his tally of online titles.
Phase Four continues on Friday with Keane Barry and Martin Adams among the players in action.
