Larsson & Kantele's PDCNB Wins
Daniel Larsson and Marko Kantele shared victories on the latest weekend of the PDC Nordic & Baltic season in Gothenburg.

Sweden's Larsson - a four-time World Cup of Darts representative - took victory on home soil in Saturday's Event Seven by defeating Finland's Kim Viljanen 6-3 in the final.

Viljanen missed double 18 for a nine-dart finish during his semi-final win over Darius Labanauskas, but was unable to go all the way in the decider.

Sunday's Event Eight did see victory for another Finn, as Kantele overcame Labanauskas 6-5 in the final, landing a 12-darter in the deciding leg to take victory.

Kantele also qualified for October's final European Tour event, the European Darts Trophy, as he won one of the three PDCNB Qualifiers held over the weekend.

Labanauskas secured a spot in September's Dutch Darts Championship in Maastricht, while Swedish ace Magnus Caris won a place in the International Darts Open in Riesa.

Youngsters Nicolai Rasmussen and Hampus Norrstrom sealed places in the PDC Unicorn World Youth Championship through the PDCNB Qualifier on Sunday, meaning that they will compete in November's event for the first time.
