Williams and Bellmont enjoy Challenge Tour victories

Scott Williams

Scott Williams and Stefan Bellmont were victorious in Events Six and Seven of the PDC Winmau Challenge Tour on Friday in Hildesheim, Germany.

Williams produced some sublime darts throughout the day, including a 102.95 average in a 5-0 defeat of Jamie Lewis in round four, to rack up his third Challenge Tour title of the year.

He overcame a duo of Germans in his first two games, beating Steffen Siepmann and Marvin Koch, before defeating two Welshmen in Shaun Thompson and Lewis in the third and fourth rounds respectively.

Next came two Belgians in the last 16 and quarter-finals, overcoming Kevin Blomme and Kenny Neyens respectively in convincing fashion.

A 5-1 victory followed in the semi-final, this time over Peter Jacques set up an all-English final with Scott Marsh.

Williams didn’t make things easy for himself in the final as he blew a 4-1 lead, taking the match to a deciding leg, but he managed to regain his composure and complete an impressive comeback.

Stefan Bellmont

It was an equally impressive day for Bellmont, who started the day off with a 5-0 whitewash of Germany's Markus Kessler.

Next came a victory over Luxembourg’s Alex Flohr, before impressive wins over Jesus Noguera and Michal Smejda sent him into the last 16.

There, he put Steffen Siepmann to the sword, beating him 5-1. 

Another 5-1 victory, against Spaniard Toni Alcinas, meant he was just two wins away from the title. 

These came in the form of two last leg deciders in the semi-final and final, the first against Nathan Girvan and then against Karel Sedlacek, securing him the £2,000 top prize.

Saturday will see Events Eight and Nine take place in Hildesheim - play will begin at 1000 CET.

The top two players from the final 2022 Challenge Tour Order of Merit will secure a PDC Tour Card for 2023/24 and a place in the 2022/23 Cazoo World Darts Championship.
