PENNANT – Simpson Cup Rd 5 / Women’s A1 Rd 3

Flagstaff Hill Pennant Player – Scott Ready Metropolitan Pennant – Simpson Cup Round 5 summary In bitterly cold conditions and misty rain, Tea Tree Gully has retained top position of the Simpson Cup ladder after accounting for Glenelg 5.5 – 1.5 in round five of Men’stop grade Pennant at The Grange Golf Club. Matt McMahon gave Tea Tree Gully the perfect start defeating Ben Magi 3&1 before Glenelg s Sam Hynes in his first A Grade Pennant Match hit back squaring his contest with Paul Wyllie. From there it was smooth sailing for The Gullies with Ryan White, Brett Crosby and Zak Fuller all scoring comfortable wins along with Greg Blewett who defeated Andrew Grzybowski 6&5. Some consolation for Glenelg was Matt McGowan s victory over Chris Austin 3&2 in the top-order match. In the first match of the morning The Grange proved too powerful for Royal Adelaide securing valuable games in its 6.5 – 0.5 victory. All players had convincing wins, the only player forced to go the distance was Jack Williams who fought to square his match with Alex Curtin. Retaining fourth place on the ladder, Flagstaff Hill has kept its season alive after a hard fought win over Blackwood 4 – 3. Stenner and Coulson got the job done early with wins over Tobin and Locke respectively before Dylan Thomas hit back for Blackwood defeating Clive Renner 5&4 and Nick Wake accounted for David Hiern 2&1. Match three was a tight affair with Shane Cotton squaring his game with Michael Munn, before Scott Ready at number two proved too strong for Ben Leske 1up, giving Flagstaff Hill the slight edge. At number one Andy Humphries from Blackwood needed a win to square the overall contest however Jacob Sewell fought hard squaring the game denying Humphries outright victory. Kooyonga proved too strong for a valiant Highercombe winning 4.5 – 2.5. With three squared matches for the day and Mark Deacon winning again at number two, 2up over Tim Baker, Highercombe gave themselves every chance of victory. Kooyonga who now sit in second place, potentially need only one win from the remaining two matches to qualify for the 8th July final.
