Florida darts star, Danny Baggish‘s Alexandra Palace run came to an end on Friday evening following a 3-1 defeat to Stockport’s Nathan Aspinall. 

Baggish, who saw off Andy Boulton in round one, took the opening set in a rapid-fire start to proceedings. But as expected, back came Aspinall with a strong second set display to level the match up at 1-1. 

In the third set, Baggish responded defiantly, opening up a few chances to take the third set and move within a set of victory. However, Aspinall took the final two legs to take set three. 

The UK Open champion wrapped up the win with a strong leg in the fifth and deciding leg in the fourth set. It was an enthralling contest and there’s certainly a lot of positives to take from the defeat. 

In terms of the score in legs, Aspinall won ten legs to Baggish’s seven. It was a really close encounter, and it’s been an impressive PDC World Championship debut campaign for the Florida ace, who will be making his return to the United Kingdom in January as he competes at PDC Qualifying School.
