WBL 2014-15 - End of Round 9 report

Ormesby clinched their third successive title in emphatic fashion with a 6-0 thumping of YHL. Utterly dominant throughout the year, it was always a case of when rather than if, and they waster little time taking the match as they eased to the eighth 6-0 win of the season.

It was Karina Le Fevre who clinched the crucial set, fitting giving her Ormesby upbringing and near impeccable record in their colours. It might well be their third title on the bounce, but this year's crop are without question the best. One dropped set is a remarkable achivement, one that may well never be replicated if they can maintain it against Draycott, who beat relegated Knighton Park 6-0.

Halton triumphed in the huge relegation match after winning 4-2 against Burton.

In one of the true British League classics, Halton relinquished the lead twice after wins for Gillian Edwards and Janay Gibson over Isobely Ashley and Kate Hughes respectively were cancelled out by two wins from Sophie Neil over Jasmin Ould and Edwards. However, Gibson came to the fore with a pulsating 12-10 in the fifth victory over Ashley before Ould, needing victory, did so in the fifth over Hughes.

The result puts Halton one place and one point above Burton, who are now in the relegation zone.

Thorntons TT secured promotion back to the Premier Division despite going down 5-1 to Drumchapel. Fusion WAGS' victory over AICES has given Thorntons an unassailable sets advantage, securing their return after a brief hiatus.

Four teams going into the final round of Division 2 with promtion still a possibility. A fourth successive win for Leeds, this time over Halton, puts them in the mix, whilst Formby's draw with Draycott means nobody is guaranteed promotion.

Greenhouse gave themselves hope of promotion after beating previously unbeaten Fusion Ladies 4-2. Zahna Hall was the star and with St Andrews drawing 3-3 with Cliffdale, they are just a point ahead of Greenhouse.

Draycott 3 and York Garden Angels face off in the last round of Division 4 neck and neck after Draycott relinquished their lead after drawing with Fusion New Stars, whilst Draycott 3 beat Byng Hall B 5-1. Both teams are already promoted.

York Garden Angels 2 secured the Division 5 crown with a 4-2 victory over Halton 3. Sandy Nash was the match winner with two victories.
