Ashton’s Awesome Foursome

Red Dragon Darts

Four time women’s World Champion Lisa Ashton continued her impressive run in the LP Metal Detecting Women’s Championship Tour, winning all four events in Middlesbrough to lead the Championship Tour table with 42pts, 13 ahead of the WDF Girls World Champion Eleanor Cairns. 

Ashton had claimed two titles from the opening weekend in Manchester of the new ADC Women’s events defeating Natalie Gilbert 5-1 in the Event 5 Final including a superb injection of momentum at the bottom of the opening leg. The multiple PDC Women’s Series Tour winner clocked a 150 checkout in the opening leg, before adding a 180 to move away at the start of leg 2.

Gilbert, making her ADC Open Tour debut, reached the semi finals of the next event before again being defeated by Ashton in a more contested match up.

The 52-year-old then completed the daily double, beating Jane Robson 5-2 in the Final of Event 6 with a 14 darter in the 3rd leg after checking out 95 in 2. 

Lisa added to her total on Sunday after claiming Women’s Championship Tour’s 7 and 8 at Middlesbrough Sports Village, whitewashing Lorraine Hyde 5-0 in the Final of Event 7 with a first 9 dart average of 102.20 as both players hit a maximum each. 

The Lancashire Rose wrapped up what was a fantastic weekend in the Northeast, beating last year’s WDF Ladies World Championship Finalist Kirsty Hutchinson 5-3 in the Final of Event 8.

Kirsty provided the toughest test for Ashton in her Final matches including the only 180 of the match but was broken crucially in the 8th and Final leg.
