Lisa Ashton continued her dominance at the PDC Women's Series with victory at Event 12 on Sunday evening. Following on from Saturday, Ashton - nicknamed the Lancashire Rose - proved too good for Aileen de Graaf in the final as she triumphed 5-2. She also overcame Rhian O'Sullivan and Lorraine Winstanley 4-3 while Ashton beat Katie Sheldon in another final game decider (5-4) in the semi-finals. Fallon Sherrock - who has the biggest profile out of any female player - tasted elimination to De Graaf in the final four.

The results go towards their final ranking and the top two seeds will qualify for the sport's two biggest tournaments - the Grand Slam of Darts and the World Darts World Championships. Ashton will now enter next month's Women's World Matchplay as the top seed and is excited about playing at the venue in Blackpool. "I've always wanted to play at the Winter Gardens. It's going to be absolutely amazing. I just can't wait to get there now."
