UNRANKED darts youngster Beau Greaves stunned world No44 Ricardo Pietreczko to claim a 5-1 win at the Grand Slam of Darts.
Greaves, 19, raced into a 3-0 lead with finishes on double two, 10 and 20.
Pietreczko then pulled one back in front of a Greaves-supporting crowd – putting his hand to his ear in an attempt to goad the fans shortly before he won the leg.
But it did not affect Greaves one bit as she completed the rout by winning the next three legs in the first-to-five format.
