Devon Petersen unable to add James Wade to list of prize scalps at PDC World Championships

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Devon Petersen Devon Petersen

Devon Petersen’s fine run in the PDC World Championships came to an end in a last-16 showdown against James Wade on Saturday.

The former Bradford-based player – who trained at Cue Gardens in Odsal – lost 4-0 to the world No 6.

South African Petersen surprised Justin Pipe and Steve Beaton in earlier rounds but was no match for the seven-time major champion.

Wade took first two sets with relative ease before Petersen threw away his shot at taking the second when missing one dart at double 16.

Wade hit his seventh 180 in the deciding leg and took out double six to ease through to the quarters.

“That wasn’t as easy as the 4-0 scoreline suggests, and I’m just glad to get past Devon, who is very dangerous on his day,” said Wade.
