On Yee Wins Ladies Crown

Hong Kong’s Ng On Yee won the WLBSA World Ladies snooker title for the first time by beating Emma Bonney 6-2 in the final in Leeds.

On Yee ended the ten-year reign of Reanne Evans in the semi-finals and went on to score a comfortable win over Bonney and become the first non-British winner of the event.

Bonney led 2-0 in the final before On Yee, who is coached by Wayne Griffiths, son of Terry, reeled off six frames in a row.

Evans, who lost to Ken Doherty in the professional Championship qualifiers last week, had been seeking her 11th consecutive Ladies title until she lost to On Yee. In the other semi-final, Bonney beat Hong Kong’s Jaique Ip Wan In.

Jasmine Bolsover, age 15 from Woking, won the Plate competition, the under-21 title and the doubles event alongside Evans.

“It feels amazing to be a World Champion,” said Bolsover, who was given permission by her school to take time out of her GCSE schedule to compete in the tournament. “I’ve had a brilliant time and it’s the greatest achievement of my career so far.”
