Luke Humphries seals fantastic fourth European Tour title of 2022 at the European Darts Matchplay

Luke Humphries claimed a fantastic fourth European Tour title of 2022 at the European Darts Matchplay in Trier with a thrilling 8-7 victory over Rowby-John Rodriguez in the final.

Humphries produced a stirring fightback from 4-0 down to deny Rodriguez his first senior PDC title, surviving a match dart in a pulsating last-leg decider to scoop the £25,000 top prize.

Rodriguez had defeated three major champions en route to his maiden PDC ranking final, but an inspired recovery from Humphries catapulted the Newbury ace to his fifth title of the year.

“In my mind it was probably one of the greatest finals we’ve seen in the PDC, that’s how it felt,” said Humphries.

“I’m over the moon, but credit goes to Rowby-John. He was fantastic. He threw absolutely everything at me.

“When you make your first final, it’s not supposed to be as easy as that, and he made it look easy.

“Eighteen months ago I’d have probably lost that 8-2 or 8-3, but I never give up. That’s probably my greatest win ever.”

Humphries had breezed through to Sunday’s final in emphatic style, following up a 6-2 win over host nation qualifier Lukas Wenig by sweeping aside Ian White 6-1 with a 101 average.

The former UK Open runner-up then extended his winning sequence to 13 legs with a whitewash of Stephen Bunting in the Semi-Finals to set up a blockbuster show-down against the former World Youth finalist.

Rodriguez and Humphries exchanged maximums in the opening leg, but the Austrian was in dreamland after establishing a commanding 4-0 cushion.

The 28-year-old followed up an early hold with a magnificent 124 finish, before legs of 14 and 13 darts maintained his blistering start.

Humphries’ third 180 saw him open his account with a 14-darter in leg five, and this sparked an extraordinary spell, as he powered in a brilliant 156 checkout before restoring parity at four apiece with an 11-darter.

Rodriguez regained the initiative with a sublime 158 checkout to move 6-4 ahead, but Humphries again responded, following up a classy 112 kill with a 14-darter to level at 6-6.

Rodriguez then moved one leg away from glory in a nervy 13th leg, but a fabulous 148 outshot from Humphries forced a fitting last-leg shootout.

The Austrian had the advantage of throw, but a sixth 180 from Humphries shifted the pendulum, and despite spurning two match darts, Humphries returned to seal the deal on double four, after Rodriguez was unable to complete a 77 checkout on tops.

Despite succumbing in cruel fashion, Rodriguez has put himself firmly in contention for World Matchplay qualification after pocketing the £10,000 runner-up cheque.

The 2021 World Cup of Darts finalist dumped out UK Open champion Danny Noppert and top seed Gerwyn Price to reach Sunday’s final stages, and he ended the hopes of German number one Gabriel Clemens earlier in the day.

Rodriguez then reeled off six consecutive legs to dispatch Nathan Aspinall 6-2 in the Last Eight, before recovering from 5-2 down to edge out Madars Razma in a compelling Semi-Final clash.

Elsewhere, Bunting was appearing in his second European Tour Semi-Final of 2022, following up a dramatic deciding-leg win over Martin Lukeman by battling past World Cup Champion Damon Heta.

Razma fell agonisingly short in his Semi-Final tie against Rodriguez, but wins over Wesley Plaisier and fifth seed Rob Cross strengthened the Latvian’s bid for a World Matchplay debut later this month.

Cross averaged 101 in a 6-3 win over Luke Woodhouse earlier in the day, while Heta was denied a third European Tour semi-final of 2022, despite accounting for Dimitri Van den Bergh in the last 16.

Aspinall averaged over 103 in his superb 6-3 win over Scott Williams at the same stage, while three-time European Tour winner White enjoyed a welcome return to form to reach his first ranking Quarter-Final since March.

European Darts Matchplay 2022 | Day Three Preview and Order of Play

The ninth European Tour silverware of the season is up for grabs in Trier on Sunday as the 16 remaining hopefuls compete for the European Darts Matchplay title.

Ten seeds were sent packing on a dramatic Day Two at the Trier Arena, opening up both halves of the draw bracket.

The afternoon session on Day Three plays host to the Third Round ties, before the Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and final take place in the evening.

Luke Humphries has now been installed as favourite to claim a fourth Euro Tour title of the season, the number three seed steps up his quest with a Third Round tie against home hero Lukas Wenig.

Humphries overcame Cameron Menzies 6-4 on Saturday despite a 100 average from the Scot, and now aims to spoil the party by ending the run of the Host Nation qualifier.

Wenig, a non Tour Card holder, followed up his First Round scalp of Steve Lennon by averaging 101 in a 6-4 success over Chris Dobey with sensational finishes of 170 and 167 along the way.

Two recent televised title winners and flatmates go head-to-head as World Cup winner Damon Heta takes on back-to-back World Series event winner Dimitri Van den Bergh.

Aussie ace Heta battled past Callan Rydz 6-4 with a 91 average in his opener, while Van den Bergh lit up the stage with a magnificent 110.8 average in a 6-2 defeat of Florian Hempel to pick up from where he left off in Amsterdam a week ago.

Rowby-John Rodriguez’ reward for his 6-2 rout of Gerwyn Price in the Second Round is a show-down with German number one Gabriel Clemens – who edged out Daryl Gurney in a last-leg decider on Saturday.

Rodriguez still harbours hope of gate-crashing the World Matchplay later this month and could move within touching distance of the provisional qualification places by reaching the final, or effectively secure his spot by winning the title.

Scott Williams is another player with one eye on the Winter Gardens, having defied a 103 average from Jonny Clayton in Round Two to move less than £3,000 away from the qualification places.

The recent ProTour event winner, who does not hold a Tour Card, now faces former UK Open champion Nathan Aspinall – who is vying to reclaim a place among the world’s top 16.

Reigning European Champion Rob Cross, who has lost in three Euro Tour finals this season, comes up against Luke Woodhouse – who knocked out 12th seed Krzysztof Ratajski in Round Two.

Martin Lukeman continues his quest to reach a second Euro Tour final of the season when he meets former Lakeside Champion Stephen Bunting.

Lukeman saw off second seed Ryan Searle 6-4 on Saturday, while Bunting edged past Polish teenager Sebastian Białecki in a last-leg shoot-out.

Associate Member qualifier Wesley Plaisier looks to move into his second Euro Tour Quarter-Final of the season at the expense of Latvian World Cup star Madars Razma – who has seen off German opposition in Dragutin Horvat and Martin Schindler so far this weekend.

Ian White punished a staggering seven missed match darts from Joe Cullen to deny the Premier League finalist 6-5 on Saturday and now meets Jeffrey de Zwaan – who came from 5-3 down to defeat in-form Dirk van Duijvenbode by the same scoreline.

The action gets under way from 12pm BST, with Third Round and Quarter-Final ties to be contested over the best of 11 legs, Semi-Finals best of 13 and the final best of 15.

Rowby-John Rodriguez dispatches Gerwyn Price at the European Darts Matchplay

Rowby-John Rodriguez enjoyed a dominant defeat of Gerwyn Price at the 2022 European Darts Matchplay in Trier on Sunday, as ten seeds were sent packing in the Second Round.

Top seed Price saw his quest for a second European Tour title of the season ended by 2021 World Cup finalist Rodriguez – who averaged 96.8 and landed four 180s as he punished just 20 per cent on the doubles from the Welshman.

Rodriguez will now meet home favourite Gabriel Clemens in Sunday’s Third Round after the German number one edged out Daryl Gurney in a deciding leg with a 98.5 average, four 180s and a high checkout of 156 to his name.

Meanwhile, Scott Williams continued his sensational spell of form by knocking out world number eight Jonny Clayton 6-4 to bolster his hopes of reaching the World Matchplay for the first time later this month.

Williams, a recent ProTour event winner despite not holding a Tour Card, defied a 103 average from Clayton as he landed four 180s and 55 per cent on the doubles in a polished display.

Dimitri van den Bergh, World Series winner in Copenhagen and Amsterdam over the past fortnight, continued his blistering run of form by averaging 110.8 in a 6-2 win over Germany’s Florian Hempel, which included a 152 checkout and eight maximums.

Van den Bergh will now meet Damon Heta in the Last 16, after the Australian World Cup winner reeled off three consecutive legs to defeat Callan Rydz 6-4.

Premier League runner-up Joe Cullen paid the price for seven missed match darts as Ian White snatched a dramatic 6-5 victory with a 100.5 average.

Germany’s Lukas Wenig delighted the Trier crowd as he followed up an earlier 170 checkout with a roof-raising 167 finish in a 6-4 scalp of Chris Dobey.

Martin Lukeman, a European Tour finalist earlier this year, overcame second seed Ryan Searle 6-4, while Dutch qualifier Wesley Plaisier thrashed a struggling Jose de Sousa 6-1 and Luke Woodhouse overcame Polish number one Krzysztof Ratajski 6-3.

Martin Schindler and Dirk van Duijvenbode were other seeds to be knocked out in Saturday’s evening session as they all lost out in a deciding leg to Madars Razma and Jeffrey de Zwaan respectively.

De Zwaan fought back from 5-3 down to deny Van Duijvenbode in a pulsating contest which featured 12 maximums between the pair.

Rob Cross survived four missed match darts from James Wilson before taking out 104 in the deciding leg of their tie, while Stephen Bunting took out 110 to deny Polish youngster Sebastian Bialecki in another 11-leg thriller.

Nathan Aspinall pulled away from two apiece to reel off four straight legs for a 6-2 victory over Jermaine Wattimena.

Luke Humphries, a three-time European Tour winner this year, defied a ton-plus average from Cameron Menzies to claim a 6-4 win as he moved through to a Last 16 clash with Wenig.

Former Premier League champion Jonny Clayton comes up against recent Players Championship event winner and Challenge Tour leader Scott Williams – who is chasing down a spot in the World Matchplay later this month.
