Corey Cadby returns to the winners circle

Corey opened with the throw and with a check out 72 Mathers broke at the first attempt and then opened the next leg with 140. However, Cadby was able to check out a 160 to tie things back up after two legs. A 115 start from him was then coupled with a 180 at the start of the next leg and with a 146 check out Cadby went 2-1 ahead. He then scored 180 at the start of the next leg but Mathers was able to capitalise on the world youth champion not completing his doubles in this leg to tie things up once more at 2-2.
A 41 start in the next leg from Cadby was jumped on by his opponent, as Mathers collected 119. However Cadby consolidated through the middle of the leg to edge back control and took it out although both players had enough chances to take the leg on multiple occasions.
Games were back on throw in the sixth leg as Mathers threw 58 to start but Cadby failed to capitalise early. It looked as though Mathers had the upper hand mid round with a 96 but he did not take full advantage with a 42 and left him 164 to take out the leg. A score of 46 was not enough and Cadby had a shot at 170 but missed by 45. However given another chance by his opponent Cadby took the total out in two darts
This had been a critical leg as Cadby now had the throw to move three legs ahead and he took full advantage of the position, throwing double twelve for the leg. Mathers was not going to give up thought and despite Cadby opening with 140, and later throwing a 180, it was Mathers who showed his class by checking out a 119 to take the eighth leg. Cadby then threw first and could only open with 80 but Mathers could not make the most of this. A 140 was almost matched by Mathers (135) but consistent throwing from both players saw Cadby leave 81 for the win (he scored 75). Mathers had a chance with 72 but was unable to convert and Cadby hit the double three with his first throw on the next visit to win the match 6-3. Both players finished with average over 80, although mid match Cadby was tracking towards a triple figure average finish.
In his semi-final clash with Kiwi superstar Cody Harris, the two players finished the last three legs with check outs of 104 (Cadby), 125 (Harris) and 102 (Cadby), each breaking the other with Cadby winning 6-5. Mathers meanwhile had seen off Rhys Mathewson in the other semi with a 6-1 victory.
Cadby was pleased with the result. “It feels excellent to win today, but it also feels like so long since I have won. There is always pressure, Cody pushed me all the in my semi-final too.” As for retaking the lead over Rhys Mathewson in the race for the Ally Pally Cadby said “Rhys is a great player, he was unfortunate to get knocked out tonight, I would have loved to have played him in the final tonight to go head to head.”
