Wade hit the nine darter in the fifth set as taking out two 180’s and 141 to hit the elusive perfect leg. Wade’s first 180 was met with a 99 from Bunting and a mere 36 scored after Wades second 180.
The Englishman then returned to the oche with 141 left which he too out easily timing up the game at 2 sets and 1 leg each.
