Fallon Sherrock claimed her third PDC Women’s Series title of 2022 on Sunday, as Lisa Ashton completed a weekend double in Barnsley.
Sherrock dominated throughout Event 11 and found herself in the semi-finals after losing just three legs in her opening four matches.
The 27-year-old’s rampant run continued into the semi-finals, with Sherrock averaging 102 and firing in an 11-darter to defeat Aileen de Graaf 5-2, setting up a showdown against Natalie Gilbert.
Gilbert provided a tough test as the pair shared the opening six legs, but Sherrock stepped up to the plate, holding her throw in a nervy seventh leg, before closing out the final with a 14-dart leg to claim victory in Sunday’s opening event.
Sherrock couldn’t use the momentum of the morning session however, as fellow star Lisa Ashton took centre stage in Event 12.
Ashton began in typically dominant fashion, dropping just one leg in her first two matches, before a tough tie against Rhian O’Sullivan produced some stunning arrows.
Ashton went two legs up after an impressive 12-dart leg, only for O’Sullivan to win back-to-back legs, including a 12-darter of her own.
The pair then traded holds before Ashton came out on top and progressed through the last 16, where it again took seven legs for the Lancashire Rose to book her place in the quarter-finals, recovering from 3-0 down to defeat Lorraine Winstanley.
Following a convincing 4-0 win in the quarter-finals, Ashton again went the distance against Katie Sheldon, setting up a final against Aileen de Graaf.
The Order of Merit leader looked poised to extend her lead with a comfortable victory, but De Graaf bounced back from a slow start by winning consecutive legs to level the match up.
However, Ashton held her nerve and never looked back, winning three legs on the spin to wrap up victory and finish the weekend with yet another Women’s Series title, her seventh of 2022.
