The pair then held throw to be locked at 2-2. In the 5th leg, a stunning 161 from James broke the Chizzy throw. James powered into a 6-3 with some big scoring, with his average well over the 100. An 180 in the final leg put James in the driving seat, as he sealed the match winning 7-4.
After James said,” I’m happy, very happy with that.” “The 161 was key, think that hurt Dave. Playing a close friend is always hard but it’s what we have to do.”
