Alister Walker survived a monumental scare to book his spot in the last four of the Bluenose Classic in Nova Scotia last night.

The world ranked No.15 had to go the full distance before finally disposing of Kiwi Martin Knight in a 78-minute battle that thrilled the full house.

Walker, the second seed trailed one love and 2-1 before unlocking Knight, ranked 32 places below him.

After the game, Walker acknowledge his opponent’s ability and play throughout the match.  “Martin is constantly improving and adding more shots to his weapons.  He kept me unsettled throughout the match,” he commented.
