Mens Pennants Round 3 ReviewPublished on 15th April 2021 in General & Club News, Golf News, Latest News, Members News, Tournaments & Draws, Uncategorized
It was a mixed weekend for our Men’s pennants teams with most teams following their previous form. Once again there were some strong individual performances across all teams. Adam Baillie was the stand out in our division 2 team, winning 6&5, whilst Darryl Hawkey won 7&5 in our division 6 team, which remains undefeated.
Our division 2 boys really need to turn things around if we are to avoid relegation this season. Adam Baillie and Daz McLoughlin stood up but it wasn’t enough as we went down to Rockingham at their home course 2-5. Daz McLoughlin has won all 3 of his games which is an impressive effort. The boys have a must win match-up this weekend against Sea View at the Vines. No excuses here, we simply must get our season up and running here.
Division 4 put up an improved performance against at Cottesloe against Mt Lawley but suffered a similar fate to the Division 2 boys, losing 4.5-2.5. Well done to Trevor Beazley and Peter Simmonds who won their match ups. The boys face Joondalup at Joondalup this weekend which isn’t the ideal match-up when we desperately need to turn the season around but it certainly is a winnable match-up given Joondalup have a mixed bag of results so far. Another must win match-up!
On a more positive note, our division 6 boys continued their outstanding start to the season and sit on top spot! It was slightly closer than desired against the bottom of the ladder WAGC, but a win is a win! Ben Hawkins, Darryl Hawkey and Biff Brody won their matches while Andrew Farmer and Larry Florido crucially halved their matches to secure a 4-3 victory.
Division 6 also travel to Joondalup to play a winless Joondalup. They will be looking to come away with maximum points here to pencil their names in for a finals position.
More positive news from division 7 who got their season up and running with a home win over Lake Karrinyup. Wins for Daniel Soderman, Chris Cooper, Nic Johnson and Matt Clune secured a narrow 4-3 which moves us level with Lake Karrinyup on points and in a good position to climb the ladder in the coming weeks.
A tough trip this week to face an inform Sun City at Wanneroo but these are the kind of ties we need to win if they are to make a late surge for the finals.
Division 8 put a brilliant effort at home against an undefeated Sun City but ultimately fell agonizingly short, losing 3-4 with a couple of games going right down to the wire. Elliott Reid, Shaun Tamehana and Chris Alexander all won with strong performances. It leaves us right in the middle of the pack, certainly not out of contention.
A win this week at Wanneroo against Lake Karrinyup would be a huge boost after last week’s narrow loss. It should be another close one with both teams looking very evenly matched on paper.
