WA Golf Club have extended their lead at the top of the Women’s Division One Pennant table after a narrow 4-3 victory over Lake Karrinyup Country Club on Sunday.
Mardi Freeman won the opening match for WAGC before Lake Karrinyup went on a roll to take the next three matches to lead the contest 3-1. Needing only to win one more match from the remaining three, WAGC proved too strong and ran out 4-3 victors.
This result sees the women from Yokine move four points clear of the group. However, they are yet to have their bye and the teams of Lake Karrinyup, Mount Lawley and Royal Perth have an extra contest up their sleeves.
Wanneroo and Royal Fremantle battled it out in a contest that would leave one of them languishing at the bottom of the table and the other claiming valuable points in the race to avoid relegation.
Wanneroo claimed victories in the early matches, but Royal Fremantle rallied late to draw the contest level at 3-3. A walkover in the final match handed the victory to Royal Fremantle.
Royal Perth put in a dominant performance to soar to a 6-1 victory over Cottesloe. Jan Kilburn won the opening match for Cottesloe on the 19th hole. From there, it was Royal Perth who dominated. Amie Phobubpa recorded a fantastic 7&6 victory for Royal Perth.
WA Golf Club has extended their domination of Women’s Pennants into Division Two where they also sit atop the leader board.
The women from Yokine put together a strong performance to take a 5-2 victory over The Vines.
Royal Perth is one of four teams currently sitting on four points, although they have played one game more than the other three.
Lake Karrinyup proved too strong for the Royal Perth women who lost 3-4. Royal Perth’s Shelley Bell continued her impressive form with a fourth consecutive win.
Melville Glades romped to a dominant 6-1 victory over Nedlands. This victory moves Melville Glades into that group of four teams currently sitting on two wins.
Meanwhile, Nedlands have lost all four of their contests and are struggling at the bottom of the table. The task doesn’t get any easier next week as they take on first-placed WA Golf Club.
Mandurah Country Club and Joondalup Country Club both remain undefeated after two rounds of Division Three action.
Joondalup had a convincing 5-2 victory over Royal Perth. Despite losing the opening two matches, Joondalup rallied to win the next five and earned a comfortable victory.
Mandurah made the most of their home course advantage to record a fantastic 7-0 win over Cottesloe. Only one match needed to go the full distance to 18 holes. Even then, Mandurah’s Shan Terry held strong to ensure it was a whitewash for the Mandurah women.
Gosnells secured their first victory of the 2019 season thanks to a 6-1 victory over Royal Fremantle. Lyn Bennett and Julie Tink both recorded impressive victories for Gosnells whilst Jane Brockhurst recorded Royal Fremantle’s solitary point.
The undefeated teams of Joondalup and Mandurah will face-off next Monday at Cottesloe Golf Club in what is sure to be a tight contest.
