ST HELENS darter Stephen Bunting lived up to his BDO number one billing with some amazing arrows in round two of the World Darts Championship.

The Newtown resident was in tip-top form to see off Dave Prins to reach tomorrow evening's quarter final.

Bunting, the Pride of St Helens Sportsperson of the Year, won the first set 3-1, which was good given Prins was also scoring well.

However, the Fazakerley born ace really turned on his ruthless streak wrapping up the second set in just 39 darts.

Sets three and four went the same way, both taken by 3-0 margins to wrap the game up four sets to nil.

He now plays Dutchman Rick Hofstra in the last eight of the BBC televised tournament.

The matches now get longer, with the quarters being five legs and best of nine sets.

The final takes place at Lakeside, Frimley Green on Sunday.
