Premier British League end of round five report

Drumchapel Glasgow moved to the top of Premier British League on GAMES difference following their 8-0 win over Cardiff.

The Chinese trio of Chih Wei Yeh, Xiaoxun Wu and Hongsheng Wang joined forces with Craig Howieson to secure a commanding victory for the team, dropping just four legs on their way to victory.

Debutant Chih Wei particularly impressed for Drumchapel as he comfortably defeated Yongbo Zhang and Craig Bryant, whilst Dan O'Connell put up the most resistance in the Cardiff team as he took an end of both Howieson and Wang.

Drum moved above home team Sycamore despite their 7-1 victory over  Kingfisher. Sycamore opted to rest Chris Doran and replace him with Adam Harrison, and although Harrison became the latest victim of seasoned pro David Barr, David McBeath, Petko Gabrovski and Viktor Gorman all won two apiece before Harrison's loss to secure a comfortable win.

As for Ormebsy, they kept the pressure on the leading pack following a 5-3 win over London Academy. The defending champions raced into a 3-0 lead thanks to five end victories for Darius Knight and Gavin Evans over Matt Ware and Ryota Kawai respectively before Danny Lawrence defeated Stephen Beerling.

Gabriel Achampong pulled one back for London with a 3-0 win over Marsden. However Knight went on to beat Kawai, and whilst Ware overcame Lawrence, Evans sealed victory for Ormesby following a 3-0 triumph over Achampong.

Finally, BATTS moved a step closer to survival following an impressive 5-3 victory over Fusion. BATTS' two European imports; Israel's Michael Tauber and Sweden's Johan Hagberg both won two matches, with a single through Adam Nutland securing victory.

A comfortable 3-0 for Tauber over Kazeem Adeleke was followed by a narrow 3-2 victory for Hagberg over Michael O'Driscoll. When Nutland extended BATTS' lead  to 3-0 after victory over Okoh, BATTS were well on their way to victory, although Lorsetas Trumpauskas did pull one set back with victory over Jack Bennett.

But BATTS made sure soon afterwards as Tauber and Hagberg defeated O'Driscoll and Trumpauskas respectively to secure victory.
