JBL 2014-15 - Round 8 report

Ormesby relinquished their lead at the top of Boys’ Premier Division after drawing 3-3 with EBATT.

In a repeat from the previous round of fixtures, EBATT managed to go one better having lost 4-2 previously. Alex Ramsden’s flourishing career hit another high note as he defeated Chris Wheeler, whilst it could have been so much better for EBATT had Jack Bennett managed to complete victory against Tom Jarvis, however Jarvis showed guts to claim victory, a set that could prove pivotal.

It gave London Academy the incentive to move level at the top of the league, and they did so with victory over Wood Green 4-2. Little separated the sides other than the magic of Luke Savill, who claimed another two victories to give his side victory. They now trail Ormesby on sets difference alone, their final round match appearing likely to be a championship decider.

Burton suffered the same fate as title rivals Ellenborough as they could only claim a 3-3 draw with Irish Girls. Despite another two wins for Burton’s Eva Wang, Ireland’s trio won a set each to take another point off one of the league’s high-flyers.

Burton still lead the division, but only on sets difference after Ellenborough defeated Draycott 5-1, with Emily Bolton and Denise Payet winning twice.

Draycott secured a big point in Boys’ Premier B as they drew 3-3 with leaders Wales. A win apiece for the Wales pair, including a superb win for Abhijay Mishra over Ryan Oyler saw them claim a point.

Northfield became the first champions of the season as they wrapped up the Division 1 title with a 5-1 win over London Academy 2. It was a comprehensive victory for Northfield, who go into Sunday with the aim of remaining unbeaten all season.

Bournemouth moved to the top of Girls’ Division 1 despite drawing with Wales 3-3. They moved top after Munster suffered defeat at the hands of Draycott, with Kate Cheer and Isabelle Joubeily bringing an end to Chloe O’Halloran’s unbeaten season.

St Mary’s TTC’s lead in Division 2A was stretched to two points as they beat Halifax 6-0, whilst Pompey could only draw with Urban, whilst in 2B Fusion shall wrap up the title if they can beat London Academy 3 on Sunday morning after overcoming BATTS A 4-2.

Fusion TTC shall also secure the Girls’ Division 2 title tomorrow morning if they can defeat Burton Uxbridge 2, following their 6-0 demolition of Ashford Brunswick.

Rasen Racers took the upper hand in the race for the Division 3A title as Ulster lost 4-2 to Sussex Blades. Ulster’s loss was to Rasen’s gain as they defeated Kingfisher 5-1. Meanwhile, Byng Hall reduced their arrears in Division 3B as they went joint top with a 5-1 win over Fusion 2, whilst leaders Halton only drew 3-3 with Burton Uxbridge.

Ormesby and Cardiff gave nothing away in the Division 4A title race with 6-0 wins over Ashford Brunswick and Westfield respectively, whilst in 4B JOOLA Plymouth moved to within one win from the title after defeating Ellenborough B 5-1.
