WBL 2014-15 - End of Round 7 report

Ormesby move a step closer to claiming a third successive Women’s British League crown as they crushed Halton 6-0. With five 6-0 victories under their belt, they need just eleven sets to secure the championship.

Draycott remain valiant in their pursuit to chase them down, and secure another victory of their own as they defeated Burton 5-1, yet another dropped set only edges them further away from the league leaders, with Isobel Ashley coming from behind to beat Natalie Slater.

Meanwhile, YHL moved up to third as they secured an important 5-1 victory over Knighton Park. Victoria Smith recovered from her two defeats in the morning by picking up a double against Knighton, who draw closer to their almost inevitable relegation.

Fusion WAGS returned to winning ways in Division 1 with a 4-2 win over Ulster. They were forced to come from behind as Hannah Lynch-Dawson and Erin Thompson had given Ulster the lead, but two victories for Lois Peake saw them on their way, with Amy Blagbrough and Sarah Short chipping in with a win each. There were also 4-2 wins for Thorntons and AICES, who face off in the next round of fixtures in what could well prove to be a promotion match, with both tied on ten points each gunning for second place.

Division 2 is, without question, the must watch division in the hall with three teams all tied on ten points. Draycott 2, Formby and Pink Pong South West are all tied on 10 points, with sets ratio, as is the case with the two latter, game ratio, the only way to separate the sides. It comes after Draycott were to latest to fall victim to Leeds Ladies, with Joanna Roberts once again the star.

Fusion Ladies show no signs of relinquishing their spot at the top of Division 3 following their 5-1 victory over Cardiff, two wins apiece for Sarah Horsnall and Natasha Walsh aided their course, with Sally Cimiotti registering one.

York Garden Angels and Draycott 3 continue their chase for Division 4 glory after registering further victories. They beat Greenhouse 2 and Batts respectively to keep their gap at the top of the division intact.

Finally, Halton 3 moved to within a point of York Garden Angels with a 4-2 victory against Byng Hall C. Beth Farnworth and Kate Roberts won two each, whilst York could only draw with Stantek after surrendering the lead on three occasions.
