WBL 2014-15 - End of Round 8 report

Victory for Ormesby against YHL tomorrow shall see them claim a third consecutive Women’s British League title after thrashing Burton 6-0. They were, once again, far too good for their opponents, flying to victory in quick precession as they ended the day without dropping a set.

And as Draycott could only manage a 4-2 victory over YHL, sets difference now means a win is enough. It could have been worse for Draycott after Yolanda King had levelled the match after stunning Emma Vickers and Alice Loveridge. However, Loveridge and Natalie Slater beat Rachel Trevorrow and Victoria Smith respectively to secure victory.

Meanwhile, Knighton Park and Halton TTC could not be separated as they drew 3-3. The result does little for either side, who both remain in the bottom two heading into the final day. Gillian Edwards and Rosemary Rainton picked up two wins apiece for their respective sides.

Fusion WAGS moved to within one point of the Division 1 championship following a 4-2 win over Byng Hall A. Lois Peake was the difference between the two sides as she secured two victories, with Amy Blagbrough and Sarah Short chipping in with one each.

Meanwhile the season defining match between Thorntons and AICES went the way of the former as they won 5-1. The pair, who both had aspirations of promotion, faced off joint on points needing a win to cement their position in second place. It was Thorntons who came out on top, aided by their Premier Division experience to come out on top, with Lisa Radford and Liz May winning two apiece.

The landscape of Division 2 looks slightly more transparent after Formby defeated Pink Pong South West 5-1. With the two teams tied on sets and games, Formby were the better on the big occasion, with Emily Bolton and Gemma Grant both picking up two wins.

That victory now means Formby are tied at the top with Draycott, who beat Halton 5-1. Inta Zdanovska was at the double once more for Draycott.

Fusion Ladies were crowned Division 3 Champions following their 6-0 win over Sycamore. Another convincing display handed them an unassailable five point lead after St Andrews could only draw 3-3 with Greenhouse.

York Garden Angels and Draycott 3 shall battle it out tomorrow for the tight to be Division 4 champions after both securing promotion. They beat BATTS and Fusion New Stars respectively to clinch glory, and will face off tomorrow afternoon.

Finally, York Garden Angels 2 and Halton TTC 3 head into tomorrow knowing one win shall clinch promotion. They overcame Halton TTC 4 and 3 respectively to put them within a victory of promotion.
