Rd 5 Pennant Wrap – Women’s A1 ‘Sanderson Cup’

With one round to play in the ‘Sanderson Cup’ the two teams to contest the final on 10 July have been decided. The Grange will play Kooyonga after both teams secured wins in round 5 played at Kooyonga.

In the penultimate round, The Grange defeated Blackwood 5-0 in an impressive display with all players controlling their matches.

Jean Foo won 3&2 against Paula White, former state captain Caitlin Roberts defeated Laura Birchmore 2&1 and Cassidy Evreniadis won 8&7 over Angela Masters.

At number two Jin-young Yun won 4&3 against Sally Graham and Ella Adams at number one defeated Jo Buchanan 3&1 to seal the 5-0 victory in favour of the defending champions.

In the second contest of the day, Kooyonga defeated Glenelg 3-2 to cement its place in the final.

Matches sat two games apiece, after wins to Glenelg’s Jill Hodge 6&4 over Jodie Deacon and Sarah Crocker 1up against Lisa Brien. While for Kooyonga, Deb Percey won 2up against Matilda Wheare and Hayley Hunt defeated Charley Jacobs 5&4.

In a high stakes number one match, with Glenelg’s finals chances still alive with victory, Kooyonga’s Lyn McGough pulled out all stops, to defeated Elysia Yap on the 18th 1up, to secure victory and guarantee Kooyonga a place in the final, in a fortnight.
