Brendan Dolan progressed through to Round Three of the William Hill World Darts Championship with a comprehensive 3-0 win over 14th seed Joe Cullen at the Alexandra Palace yesterday (Wednesday).
Dolan, who eased past Yuanjun Liu in the first round on Sunday, came storming out of the blocks as he claimed the first leg 3-0, including a 118 checkout.
Dolan, who averaged 93.15 over the course of the contest, continued to boss matters in the second set and he sealed the set 3-0 with a stunning 170 checkout to complete a 12 dart leg.
The Belcoo man lost his first leg of the match as he missed darts at doubles to allow Cullen to go 1-0 up in the third set.
Dolan though was not about to let his dominant position slip and he hit double six to tie things at 1-1.
With confidence high, the Fermanagh thrower hit a 13 dart leg to make it 2-1 and he went on to secure the victory and his place in the last 32 by hitting double four.
The win guarantees Dolan, who is number 45 in the Order of Merit, prize money of at least £25,000.
Next up for Brendan is a clash against the winner of the Mervyn King v Jan Dekker game which is scheduled for Sunday afternoon.
