#Hong Kong's #Ng On Yee claimed her third UK Ladies title in Leeds over the weekend.

On Yee, 26, defeated Dudley's #Reanne Evans in the final at the Northern Snooker Centre 4 - 1 denying Evans the chance of a ninth UK title.

It was a strong field in the knockout stages of the Litetask UK Women's Championship with On Yee coming up against Ronnie O'Sullivan's cousin Maria Catalano in the semi-finals 4 - 2.

Evans had a convincing win over Katrina Wan 4 - 0.

It was another rival duel between the two since their summer encounter at the Paul Hunter Classic in Furth, Germany, which saw Evans come out on top that time 4 - 1.

There were other successes too in the field.

Heidi Doodar Degruchy went further than last year with a last 16 place, and got to play Reanne Evans but lost 3 - 0.

She wrote on Facebook about the fact that since she started playing the game well over a year ago, she has finally achieved her dream of playing the World Number One.

"Today (Saturday) has been a massive achievement for me," she said.

Success in U-21 for talented teen

There was also success for younger ladies in the events in Leeds, which included the Under-21, Challenge Cup and Seniors event.

17-year-old Emma Parker won the U-21 defeating Shannon Metcalf in the final and in the Challenge Cup, Parker also managed to book a place in the final against Ho Yee Ki.

She was apparently managed at The Grove, and started playing pool at 4, but turned to snooker by 15.
