WBL 2014-15 - End of Round 6 report

Ormesby and Draycott raced to quick victories as they set out their stalls for the remainder of the weekend.

The two teams demolished Knighton Park and Halton TTC 6-0 respectively, wrapping up their matches within 90 minutes.

Draycott were first over the line, showing their superior class as they cruised to victory over Halton, who are without Nicole Hall. Alice Loveridge was impressive on her first appearance of the season, having missed the last weekend due to the European Championships.

Hot on their trail were Ormesby, who dismantled Knighton Park in a similar fashion with few games dropped. The trio of Sarah Berge, Maria Tsaptsinos and Chloe Whyte were quickly into the groove, looking comfortable as they maintained their near impeccable record of just one dropped set.

The match of the round was unquestionably the one between YHL and Burton Uxbridge, which ended 3-3.

Whilst the game was a spectacle filled with heightened drama, the result does little for either side as they both look to fight off relegation and push higher up the league.

Sophie Neil put in a superb to defeat both Yolanda King and Vicky Smith, but Rachel Trevorrow’s double, salvaged a point for YHL, defeating Isobel Ashley in the final set of the match after Kate Hughes had excellently defeated Smith.


In Division 1, Fusion Wags dropped their first point of the season as they drew with bottom side Drumchapel. The previously unbeaten Nividita Sunil was defeated twice, first by Lynda Flaws and then Lucy Elliott, however Lois Peake saved Fusion with two victories.

Yet they peculiarly extended their lead at the top of the league after Thorntons TT lost 4-2 to Ulster, who played brilliantly to earn the two points, with Hannah Lynch-Dawson winning twice.

Division 2 league leaders Draycott East Midlands 2 made their intentions clear with a 6-0 thumping of Cippenham Ladies. The result moved them to outright leaders of the league after Pink Pong South West succumbed to a surprising defeat to Leeds Ladies, with Joanna Roberts picking up two victories whilst Rebecca George and the returning Nicole Finn won one each.

Fusion Ladies defeated Cliffdale Chandlers 4-2 to put them top of Division 3. Fusion raced into a 4-0 lead, with Sarah Horsnall winning twice, before Alex Lee and Jane Ellis scored two consolation sets for Chandlers.  That victory gives Fusion a two point cushion at the top of the league after St Andrews TTC were shocked by Cardiff City Ladies, going down 5-1.

York Garden Angles got off to a winning start in Division 4 with a 4-2 victory over Byng Hall B, with two victories apiece for Linellis Kazimieraityte and Silvia Trenti forcing their side over the line. They remain a point clear at the top of the division after Draycott East Midlands 3 defeated Greenhouse 2 6-0.

Finally, York Garden Angles got off to a flying start in Division 5 as they defeated Byng Hall C 6-0. Jessica Monis was particularly impressive on her way to two victories, not dropping a single game in the process.
