WBL 2014-15 - End of Round 10 report

Ormesby reasserted their true dominance with a 5-1 thrashing of second placed Draycott.

The mouthwatering spectacle proved to be one sided, with Karina Le Fevre and Sarah Berge supplying the goods with two wins each. It was another sign of their utter dominance throughout the year, with Maria Tsaptsinos' defeat to Alice Loveridge just their second dropped set of the season. Karina Le Fevre, playing at number one, ended the season unbeaten, a truly outstanding effort.

Meanwhile, Burton Uxbridge performed a dramatic escape as they avoided relegation at the bitter end. After defeat to Halton they needed to catch a point up on them, and did so with a 3-3 draw to Knighton Park. Another superb double from Sophie Neil was the catalyst before Kate Hughes sealed safety with one win after Halton had lost 4-2 to YHL. It means Burton stayed up by a solitary set.

The surviving Premier Division teams can expect a challenge from Fusion WAGS, who sent a note to their competitors of next year with a 5-1 win over the leagues runners up Thorntons.

Without question, the most spectacular conclusion was that in Divison 2, as the four teams battling for promotion faced off. In the end, the two teams that held first and second spot, Draycott and Formby, were promoted, yet that tells just half a tale. Both Pink Pong and Leeds held leads against their rivals, and threatened to invade the promtion party, and whilst the maths eventually got the better of Leeds, they took Formby to the wire when Rebecca George defeated Zoe Cheesman. It meant Gemma Grant had to defeat Nicole Finn or Formby and Pink Pong would have to be seperated on games difference. Thankfully for Formby, and the referees, Grant won 3-1 and the celebrations commenced.

Greenhouse snatched promotion at the very death as they stole the pockets of the disappointed St. Andrews. Greenhouse defeated Cardiff 5-1, and, with St Andrews losing to Division 3 champions Fusion Ladies, Greenhouse leapfrogged their rivals.

York Garden Angels won the battle for the Division 4 championship with a 4-2 victory over Draycott 3. The two teams were tied on points going into the match, with Draycott having a superior sets difference, however, York Garden Angels came out on top with Linellis Kazimieraityte and Silvia Trenti winning both.

Finally, Halton 3 gained promotion from Division 5 after all three teams going for the final spot drew. Halton themselves drew with promotion chasing Stantek, whilst Sutton drew with York Garden Angels 2.
