Leongatha Golf Club Women’s Pennant Results 3rd April 2017
Once again there were some good individual performances, but the only positive team result was in Section 4 where Leongatha squared with the ladder leader Woorayl.
Section 1 went down to Foster 3 1/2 – 1 1/2 with Colleen Touzel the only winner defeating Trudi Prue 3/1 and Wendy Parker squaring with Robyn Galloway, which was a great result. Toni West lost to Barb Warren, Dot Stubbs lost to Gale Tyers and Marg Berry lost to Beth Curram. We are only 2 pts above Wonthaggi on the ladder, so need a win next week against Meeniyan (tough assignment against the ladder leaders who have an unassailable lead) or Foster to defeat Wonthaggi. Nail biting stuff.
Section 2 played their last game this week just losing to Korumburra 3/2.Trish Owen defeated Chris Rickard and Marea Maher overcame Carrie Harding. Maxine Eabry lost to Lee Clements, Pat Pease lost to Joan Peters and Kerry Hogan went down to Heather Grist. With Korumburra already headed for Section 1 next year we are relying on the results of the two games next week to avoid relegation. At the moment we are two points ahead of Lang Lang and Meeniyan so would hope one of those teams are defeated so we will remain ahead of them on points.
Section 3 lost to Phillip Island to remain firmly on the bottom of the ladder. Coral Gray won against Lyn Ward, and Marianne Leaver defeated Sharon Davie. Fay Quilford lost to Wendy Hopkins, Shirley Welsford lost to Liz O’Neill, and Louise Schache lost to Ros Reid. Whilst all players have been trying hard it is inevitable this team is headed for section 4 next year.
Section 4 did very well against the ladder leaders Woorayl, squaring the match. Marg Griffiths played very well to defeat Elly Berryman 6/5, Sue Woods defeated Ann Poole and Libby Seebeck squared with Inge Gilliam. Loris Clark lost to Heather Sullivan and Sue Bowler lost to Marg Tuckett. There would have to be exceptional results next week for Leongatha to move past second place on the ladder, most likely Woorayl will remain in first place.
