Sanderson Cup three-peat for The Grange

The Grange has won the 2017 Sanderson Cup, by defeating Glenelg 3.5-1.5, claiming three A1 Pennant titles in a row.

The final was played at Royal Adelaide Golf Club in pleasant conditions and The Grange minor premiers, held the ascendancy from the onset.

The Glenelg side were without the talented Charley Jacobs at number two due to an ongoing wrist injury and would need everything to go their way to cause an upset.

The Grange were well up in matches two and three thru nine holes and Jean Foo led Matilda Wheare 1up at number five. Glenelg though, were right in the contest with number one Elysia Yap 1up against Ella Adams and match four between Sarah Crocker and Louaise Glennon all square.

First match in was Caitlin Roberts for The Grange winning 7&5 over Jill Hodge and then shortly after Jin-yun Young closed out her match with Josie Gale 6&4 to give The Grange a two-nil lead.

In match four Sarah Crocker for Glenelg edged ahead to claim the match 3&2 against Louise Glennon to give her side some hope, but it was short lived as The Grange Captain Jean Foo closed out her match with Matilda Wheare 3&1 by winning the third hole and securing the overall contest for her side.

At the time, match one between Ella Adams and Elysia Yap was square resulting in a half match and official score of 3.5-1.5 in favour of The Grange.

The Grange Team Captain Jean Foo, who along with Roberts claimed her third title, was ecstatic with the victory.

“We are all really stoked that we won again this year and to have a really good team together to win three in a row. We were all really ready this season and didn’t take anything for granted as the Glenelg team girls were very good.” Foo said

“Overall really happy we got over the line today.” Foo added.

The three-peat and win is The Grange Golf Clubs seventh Women’s A1 (Sanderson Cup) Pennant title.
