Day 2

Our opponents on day 2 were Stirling and Clackmannanshire. Dark clouds meant rain for the morning foursomes, with players, caddies and spectators taking cover under their brollies! The opening pairing of Carys & Jenny, traded holes with Jenny Allan and Linda Robertson, before succumbing on the 17th, 2&1 to S&C. Ellie & Louise took on Erin Huskie and captain, Laura Bissett, in an exciting tussle which eventually finished in a 4&3 win to S&C. The final pairing of Abby & Jill took on Claire Capocci & Kayleigh Caine, producing a great display of golf to win 5&3.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The sun reappeared for the afternoon singles matches and the team were raring to go after being fed and watered. In game 1, Abby took on Jenny Allan, who quickly went 3 up following a spurt of birdies. Abby fought back hard to take the S&C player down the 18th where a revenge birdie meant Abby won, 1up. In match 2, Lara Douglas proved too strong for Louise, winning by 5&4. The next two matches saw Jenny take a 5&4 win over Linda Robertson, quickly followed by a 2&1 victory for Jill, against Margo Gardner. Match 5 was the box office event of the day, Kirsten V Erin Huskie. Birdies and eagles galore, the girls fought hard against each other, neither going more than 2up over the 18 holes played. With both players laying up to the burn on 18, a well deserved half was taken for team EL. Carys also had an extremely close match V Lucy Simpson, Lucy edging Carys out on the 17th, winning 2&1.
