Lisa Aston Defends Women’s Title

Lisa Ashton retained the BDO Women’s World Championship with a come from behind win over Anastasia Dobromyslova. Dobromyslova had been the form player throughout the championship, not dropping a leg, and she whitewashed Ashton 3-0 in the opening set, taking out a 100 finish in the second leg.

Ashton then went into overdrive, dropping just one of the next 10 legs to win a fourth world title in five years. She really hit a purple patch in the third set. There was a 12 darter to break Dobromyslova’s throw in the first leg and she wrapped up the set with 130 on the bullseye.
