Adams crashes out at Lakeside

Three-time champion Martin Adams exited the BDO World Darts tournament on Friday night as he suffered a 5-2 quarter-final defeat to Jan Dekker.

Dekker took a 3-0 lead but Adams responded by winning the next two, including a check-out of a 161, to put the pressure on.

It told as Adams missed five match darts, but he eventually took the seventh set to reach his second semi-final.

He will meet Alan Morris, who won a memorable encounter with James Wilson 5-2 later in the evening.

Norris and Wilson had been tied at 2-2 but Norris turned it on after the interval and won six straight legs on his way to victory.
