Shouldn't this directive:
"ProxyPassMatch ^/(.*\websocket)$ ws://10.x.x.x:80/$1" 

must be defined before "ProxyPass /  http://..." for it to not be ignored ?

In terms of intent, two application servers are load balanced by apache which upgrade their http connection to ws connection when the requested url has the string websocket towards the end of the url. 

I have attempted proxypassmatch for the upgrade and used the ROUTEID session would forward the request to the appropriate application server. 

Based on the valuable inputs, it seems that the ws request url is incomplete.

ProxyPassMatch 2nd parm as opposed to the balancer definition.
