Metropolitan Pennant – Simpson Cup Round 6 summary

Winners in round six of the Metropolitan Pennant season played at The Vines Golf Club were Glenelg, Kooyonga, The Grange and Royal Adelaide, the same four winning teams as last week.

In the first match of the day off the 1st tee, Glenelg won 4-3 in a tight contest over The Vines.

Winners for Glenelg were Anthony Olsen 4&3 (undefeated this season), Josh Hayes 7&5, Will Starkey 5&4 and Lachlan Barker 4&3 closed out the win at number two.

For the Vines, Dean Nobbs, Matthew Bell and Sam Earl had wins but the home team fell one match short.

In the other early match, off the 10th tee, Kooyonga secured its sixth straight win defeating Blackwood 4.5 – 2.5 but had to work hard for victory after being down early.

For Kooyonga, Zak Fuller won at number seven 4&3, before Blackwood hit back and held the lead after wins to Ben Winton 2&1 and Daniel Wake 5&4 against previously undefeated Daniel Speirs and a halve to Ben Tobin.

Kooyonga’s top order however, of Heath Riches, Tim Baker and Will Somerfield were too strong and secured the win, to guarantee Kooyonga a place in the grand final.

Winners for Grange were Colin Coleman 2up, Ben Tucker 3&1, Alex Hendrick 1up and Andre Na 4&3. Halved matches were between Grange’s Scott Webb and Ryan White and Mark Demasi and Jacin Cook. Chris Austin won at number one for Tea Tree Gully 3&2 against Ben Stowe.

Metropolitan Pennant – Women’s A1 Round 4 summary

Glenelg remain the only undefeated team and Blackwood and the Golf SA combined side notch up wins after round four of the 2015 Women's A1 Pennant Competition played at Kooyonga.

In the first contest of the day, Blackwood racked up two successive wins by defeating Kooyonga 4-1 in what was somewhat a surprising result given Kooyonga’s solid start to the season.

Kooyonga’s Linda Ferris won match five 2&1 but it was all Blackwood from there with wins to Paula White 5&3, Sally Graham 5&4, Angela Masters 1up and at number one Jo Buchanan 4&3 over the previously undefeated Lyn McGough.

In a prelude to the Grand Final, top side Glenelg outclassed second place The Grange 4-1.

Cassidy Evreniadis was the only winner for Grange with a 3&1 defeat of Josie Hodge at number four.

Winners for Glenelg were Jill Hodge 2&1 over Jin-young Yun, Sophie James 3&2 against Jean Foo and Elysia Yap 5&4 over Kristalle Blum.

At number one Jenny Lee now unbeaten in her past 16 matches won against Ella Adams 1up. Despite six birdies and an eagle Lee needed all 18 holes to defeat a very tough opponent, halving the last.

In the final contest of the day, the combined Golf SA team defeated Royal Adelaide 3.5-1.5 in a close contest.

Golf SA’s matches came courtesy of Taylah Cooper defeating Sophie Hilditch 4&3, Reo Jenner 1up against Jill McEwin and Susan Keylock proved too steady for Anne Ellis 2&1.

Royal Adelaide’s sole win was courtesy of Edwina Grant defeating Cecilia Douglas 4&2.
