Ovens is hot stuff in Scotland

Stevenage darts ace Denis Ovens was beaten by Alex Roy in the final leg of the Scottish Players Championship.
Roy claimed a dramatic victory at the Magnum Centre in Irvine to win the £5,000 title - and a Players Championship qualifying place in the European Championship at the end of the month - while Ovens had to settle for £2,500.

The eventual winner took the final's first set before Ovens won four of the next five legs to lead 2-1 in the game.

Roy won set four without reply, but an 11-darter saw Ovens lead in the deciding set.

Watford-based Roy levelled with a 101 finish to send the match all the way, and a brilliant 161 checkout earned him victory.

Ovens reached his third final of the year with a 3-1 win over Steve Maish in the semi-final, and narrow five-set wins over Wayne Jones, Dave Smith and Mark Dudbridge.

And Ovens followed up Saturday's appearance in the final with a run to the quarter-final of Sunday's competition 24 hours later, where he lost 3-1 to the eventual beaten finalist Mark Walsh.

Walsh edged the final two sets of the match 2-1 against Saturday's runner-up who hit seven perfect darts in one leg.
