Women's Premier League


WPL: By the Numbers – 9.10



5             the points haul as Glendale Merlins removed Berkeley All Blues from the ranks of the unbeaten with a 46-21 decision that put the Merls right on the Blues hind at table; 3 first forty lead changes until Glendale loosehead prop, Sarah Chobot, touched down a fiver placing homegirls at an advantage, 15-14, they would not forsake; 2:1 try-scoring ratio for the victors; 1 double for Merlins openside, Rachel Ehrecke, and 11 for 10, Hannah Stolba, on 3 conversions and 1 try;

4             -try Beantown 15, Kenyan sensation Michelle Omondi, and 17 for 12, Kim Rozier, on 1 try and 6 conversions as the Titletown XV ripped on DC Furies, 52-3, in Boston;

1             first forty double for flyer, Tiffany Tate, and San Diego rode a 24-0 midpoint advantage to 24-10 victory over Chicago on the road in Illinois;

10           -minutes the 5-0 lead, on a try by New York 14, Sara Levy, before evaporating as Twin Cities went on a 7-try rampage  culminating in a 39-5, 5-table point win; Amazons “tackle and turn” game plan stymied Big Apple’s Best and    vaulted the ‘Zons from the cellar into the middle of a lively Red Conference pack;

Upcomes the weekend:

Sat, 9.15
Furies (6) v (7) Harlequins:  Quins are coming off the bye weekend, while Furies will look to return to form after last weekend’s loss in Boston;

ORSU (5) v (11) San Diego: travelers on a 2-0-0 run just now and seek to continue their winning ways; Oregon are wanting to level their record in front of the home crowd;

Sun, 9.16
Chicago North Shore (2) v (11) Glendale Merlins in Chi-Town: road win and Merlins could be in sole possession of the ordering seat at table, dependent on the WaveRiders outcome, but the larger the points haul the better for Glendale; North Shore, meanwhile, will be trying to find ways to win, elusive paths thus far this season;

New York RC (10)  v (11) Beantown: certainly the Match of the Day if not the Weekend; should be an extremely lively battle of Red Conference heavyweights with the winner taking topspot in the division
