JBL 2014-15 - Round 9 Report

The fate of both the Boys’ and Girls’ Premier Division shall be decided in the last round of fixtures as the top two sides in both leagues square off.

Wins for Ormesby and London Academy over Wood Green and EBATT respectively set up their date as a title clincher, with London needing a draw as they have an inferior sets record. Ormesby defeated Wood Green 4-2, with Tom Jarvis and Chris Wheeler winning two apiece, whilst London Academy beat EBATT 5-1, William Apeoqvist and Luke Savill winning two apiece.

Meanwhile, Burton Uxbridge and Ellenborough warmed up for their title match with 6-0 thrashings Draycott and BATTS. Burton’s one set advantage means they only need a draw to claim the title.

Meanwhile, Wales secured the Premier B title with victory over Bournemouth.

A Matthew Leete double helped Division 1 champions Northfield to their ninth straight win as they beat Ellenborough 4-2, whilst in Girls’ Division 1, Munster suffered a shock 4-2 defeat at the hands of Wales to give Bournemouth a two point cushion at the top of the league after they defeated Brixham 5-1.

Pompey and St Mary’s face a title decider of their own in Division 2A after the latter drew with Urban, meaning they lead Pompey by a point going into the match. Elsewhere, Fusion secured the 2B title with a 5-1 victory over London Academy 3, Shaquille Webb-Dixon particularly impressive on his way to two wins. The same can be said for Fusion’s girls team, who clinched the Division 2 title with a 6-0 victory over Burton Uxbridge 2.

Rasen Racers moved a step closer to the Division 3A title as they defeated Greenhouse 2 6-0. They need just a point against Munster to claim the league, who beat Kingfisher 4-2. Division 3B is slightly more complex, with Halton and Byng Hall having to fight off for the title after victories over Fusion and Guernsey left them level on points.

Cippenham are relying on Cardiff to do them a favour if they can win the Girls’ Division 3 title, they moved level with Fusion at the top of the league with a 4-2 over Northfield, whilst Urban drew with BATTS B. Urban now lead the division with a superior sets difference.

Ormesby crucially dropped a point in Division 4A as they could only force a draw against Westfield. They must now beat league leaders Cardiff to win the league, they beat Guernsey 6-0.

Finally, JOOLA Plymouth became the latest division winners as they managed to overcome RBTTC Hull. Josh Millman was the star as he won both matches.
