Busscher and Van Leuven shine in the Malta International Darts Open finals

Michael Busscher and Noa Lynn Van Leuven won titles at Malta International Darts Open that was held in the past week at the Kirkop Sports Complex.

Dutch player Busscher overcame the challenge of German player Marcus Maier 5-3 in what turned out to be an exciting encounter.

The match turned out to be an open contest but in the end, Busscher seemed to hold too much prowess for his opponent to secure victory.

As regards the Maltese contingent, Norbert Attard and Eucharist Baldacchino reached the Last 32. Attard bowed out to tournament finalist Maier 4-2 while Baldacchino lost to German player Marc Burmeister 4-0.

In the women’s category, Van Leuwen was in a class of her own when she brushed aside German player Irina Armstrong 5-0 in the final.

Althea Ciantar was Malta’s top performer in the women’s category when she reached the Last 32 only to be eliminated by England’s Rebecca Brouse 4-0.

In the Youths category, Maltese player Kyle Satariano reached the final but was beaten by Englishman Ryan Branley 5-0.

On his way to the final, Satariano beat fellow Maltese player Thomas Sammut in the semi-finals.

In the Standing Paradarts competition, Malta’s Joseph Martin reached the quarter-finals but was then defeated by Denmark’s John Jensen 3-0.

It was English player Steve North who won the final after defeating Norwegian player Alan Rask 4-1.

In the Masters category, Wheelchair Para Darts player Bradley Zerafa played in group B where he got a win and two losses.

After a 2-0 loss against Kevin Stringer of England, Zerafa beat Italian player Sergio Bartolini 2-0 although he was unlucky to go down to Norwegian Jesper Andersen 2-1.
