Yesterday, Sarah Wilmore, Vicky Belchamber and Fiona Horrocks went to Hindhead to play the first leg of their quarter final Derry Cup match and came up against some very tough opposition. The Hindhead ladies handicaps were 3, 6 and 9 so they were all up against it.
All the matches were tight but home advantage really helped the opposition. Sarah lost on the 18th – 1 down, Vicky also lost 5 and 3 but Fiona managed to win on the 19th coming back from 3 down after 9 and having to birdie the 18th to halve the hole and keep the match going. However Fiona also managed another birdie on 19th to give me the win!
With the scoring system it means that although they lost 2-1, they only lost 4-3 on points which means that they are still in with a chance for the home match on 9th March – so fingers crossed!
Well battled ladies keep up the good work and good luck in your next match.
