Darts results: Peter Wright defeats Fallon Sherrock at the World Series of Darts Finals

Peter Wright survived a real scare from Fallon Sherrock to reach the second round of the World Series of Darts Finals in Amsterdam.

In a repeat of their thrilling encounter at last year's Grand Slam of Darts, which Snakebite edged 16-13, Sherrock hit all four at her attempts at doubles in the opening eight legs at the sell-out AFAS Live.

Her classy finishing included a 73 on the bullseye as well as a 120 checkout in the eighth leg as she continued to punish the world champion's wastefulness on the outer ring despite a huge gulf in their respective scoring.

However, the Milton Keynes star was unable to earn an attempt at a double in the last two legs, with Wright leaving her stranded on 82 and 56.

Despite missing eight of his 14 attempts at doubles, Wright averaged 103.52 during the 6-4 victory compared to Sherrock's 88.18 while he hit four of the six 180s.

Dutch duo Danny Noppert and Dirk van Duijvenbode enjoyed victories on home soil against Simon Whitlock and Haupai Puha respectively.

Noppert raised the roof with a 170 checkout in his win over Whitlock to set up a meeting with reigning champion Jonny Clayton, while Van Duijvenbode came through a last-leg decider against New Zealander Puha and will next face Gary Anderson.

Vincent van der Voort was unable to make it a trio of Dutch successes as he went down 6-3 to Canada's Matt Campbell, whose next test will come against world number one Gerwyn Price.

Michael van Gerwen will begin his bid for a fifth World Series Finals title against Damon Heta, who ran out a 6-3 winner against Gordon Mathers in an all-Australian affair.

Leonard Gates enjoyed victory in his first TV appearance outside of USA, defeating Devon Petersen 6-4 to set up a clash with James Wade.

Gates' countryman Danny Baggish was narrowly denied in a last-leg decider by Ryan Joyce, who will now face top seed Dimitri Van den Bergh, while Dave Chisnall claimed a 6-3 win over Jamie Hughes and he will next meet Joe Cullen.

Saturday's second round winners will return for Finals Day on Sunday, when the quarter-finals will take place in the afternoon session before the semi-finals and final in the evening.
