Junior Girls Matchplay is over with two tired girls arriving home tonight. They can be very proud of their efforts in their first Junior Jug experience. Wide Bay Burnett were the winners, followed by Far Nth Qld, Gold Coast, Nth Qld, Downs & SW, Brisbane & District then Central Qld. WELL DONE GIRLS!
28th June 2012
The two Downs and South Western District juniors playing for the Junior Jug in the Interdistrict Matchplay at Yeppoon are flying the team colours in between showers of rain, wet bunkers and blustering winds.
Paige Large from Gatton and Darcy Habgood from Toowoomba both off 10 are currently in Yeppoon for the event. After a slow start in the inclement conditions, they bounced back well on Tuesday with a team win. Darcy played to her handicap to win 2up and Paige came back strongly from 3 down after 11 holes to square her match. A rest day Wednesday worked in their favour as they gained another team win against the in form Gold Coast girls on Thursday morning and in the afternoon match against Brisbane & District, Darcy won 5/3 against a 6 handicapper and Paige staged a good comeback to again end up square against a 1 marker.
They play their last match tomorrow against North Qld. Anything could happen on the last day of competition. GOOD LUCK GIRLS!
