Hungarian Darts Trophy: Report

After a successful run to the final in Jena at the previous European Tour, Budapest was a reversal of fortunes for Stephen.

Defeat to Nathan Rafferty on day one of the Hungarian Darts Trophy meant an early exit for The Bullet after the Northern Irish youngster pinched a 6-4 win.

There was little to choose between the duo with both men grabbing legs on their own serve for long periods.

However, a crucial Rafferty break of throw in leg ten proved to be the only real difference.

Afterwards, a disappointed Stephen said: “No idea why but I just felt a little drained for some reason. But no excuses, Nathan played well.

“Would have been nice to enjoy another strong Euro run but I just have to take this one on the chin.

“But I’m really happy with my new 18g darts and they’re flying well. I’m confident they will take me to a title.”
