The fourth round for the women’s pennant on Monday was played in wet and stormy conditions.
The Division 1 team went to Alexandra to play against Kilmore and stayed dry until the storm that swept across the state forced them to abandon the round.
The conditions did not allow them to continue play so a drawn match was the result.
The Division 2 team had an earlier and wet start off the tee at Strathbogie where they played against Alexandra. Fortunately the team were able to complete four games with wins prior to the storm hitting and play being abandoned.
Therefore the team were wet but happy managing a 4 ½ to ½ win.
On Sunday the men’s pennant season finished with the Handicap Division Section 2 team playing in the final against Euroa at Broadford.
Unfortunately the team lost two and five although they did put up a good fight with three matches getting as far as the 18th hole.
Congratulations to the team for making the final and representing the club again in pennant finals.
