Sunday 4th September 2016 at Perranporth
Our team consisted of :
The rain had stopped but there was still a fresh breeze.
Danielle & Laura made the first pair out - they played so well, winning their match 4&2.
Cath & Gemma were next, finding themselves in some awkward positions early on, although they did rally, were unable stop a win from the Devon pair. Followed by Emily & Olivia who at one stage were down but they rallied on the back 9 to take the lead and to finally win 2&1.
We enjoyed a much needed lunch of pasties leading 2-1 into the afternoon.
PM.. line-up: Danielle;Laura;Gemma;Cath;Olivia;Emily
Devon came out fighting in the singles - goodness we saw some excellent golf, it was a joy to watch them. Danielle took the first point for Cornwall winning her match, 1up after 14 Danielle won the next 2 holes to win her match 3&2. Unfortunately Laura & Gemma lost their matches on 16 & 15th holes. Two of the matches went to the 18th, Cath & Olivia trying to fight back for the half point, but Devon showed a calmness in securing the points needed. Finally bringing up the rear Emily Wilson, was in fine form to secure a much needed point, winning her match 4& 3
Congratulations to Devon for their 5/4 win, we put up a good fight, both teams really did play some lovely golf.
Our team did us proud, as always. Thank you to caddies Jan, Gary, Sean, Bev, Nikki & Victoria and the supporters who took time to watch.
So the final result of the Divisional matches:
Dorset 3 Cornwall 6
Devon 2.5 Dorset 4.5
Cornwall 4 Devon 5
Congratulations Cornwall II we are now likely to play Gloucestershire in the Divisional Final on Sunday 25th September.
A very excited County Vice Captain - Sue Roworth
