THE rising star of Cork darts Ciarán Teehan came close to a stunning upset in round two of the World Darts Championship.
The 20-year-old from the northside already upset the odds at Alexandra Palace last weekend against Ross Smith.
This time he was against the number 19 ranked Mervyn King, who had to withstand a stunning comeback to edge through 3-2.
After coming from two sets down to tie it up he had all the momentum but came up just short.
Teehan, who only took up darts when he was 12 and is a popular figure on the local scene in Cork, was a quarter-finalist in the BDO Masters in October, where another Leesider John O'Shea landed the title.
