Helen Pascoe of Buninyong and Yarrawonga’s Sharon Wilson have taken home the silverware at Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort.

Pascoe who has dominated the senior tour this year will add her first ever Betty Kernot Trophy for leading Country Championship qualifier to her collection. The Buninyong member held onto her overnight lead with a 78 on the Murray Course to give her a total of 159 for the 36-Holes.

 Pascoe also took out the Victorian Women’s Autumn Tournament earlier this year at Murray Downs and will be looking to add the Country Championship to her 2018 collection when the match-play takes place tomorrow.

 The second qualifying position goes to fellow Buninyong member, Amy Leeson. Leeson produced the round of the day shooting 76 including two birdies and an even par back nine. The 19-year-old will do battle with another up and coming star in Steffanie Vogel.

 Vogel finished two shots back from Leeson on 162. The Cobram Barooga native represented Victoria for the first time earlier this year at the Australian Interstate Series held in Adelaide.

 The final qualifying position went to Judy Langford (Wodonga). Langford finished on 163 and will be looking to take down Helen in their match in the morning. Hit off will be at 8am and 8:10am respectively for the two matches before the final takes place from around 12:30pm.

The best nett score for the two days in the Championship field went to Glenda Clarke of Warrnambool. Clarke has showed solid form, backing up her nett 76 yesterday with a 73 today to finish on 149 for the two days.

 Closely behind was Meredith Ramadan (The National) who had the best nett of Day 2 with 72 to go with her 80 nett from Day 1 to finish 3 shots back.

Yarrawonga Mulwala’s own Sharon Wilson has taken out the Glenelg Cup title, playing in the event for the first time.

 Wilson came from one shot behind after Day 1 to finish on nett 150 for the two days with 74 and 76 respectively.

 Closely behind was Kaye Gallagher (Maffra) who had rounds of 74 and 77 to finish just one shot back.

 The best gross again went to another local Yarrawonga Mulwala member in Wendy Dickson who finished with 198 after rounds of 95 and 103. Two shots back in second was Angela Broadbent (Belvoir Park) on 200 for the 36 holes.
