The Under-16 Team triumphed 3-1 over a gutsy Prestwick St Nicholas, all four boys giving their all with very mature performances.
Team Captain, Blair Gavin, won the lead match with comfortable 3 & 2 victory
Robbie Blackwood was second out and was also a comfortable 3 & 2 winner.
Match three became pivotal. Stuart Hope, though boasting four hole lead at the 10th was pegged back to all-square by the 16th. However, a fine 7-iron to 40 feet at the 17th was duly dispatched for a birdie 2 and an unassailable 1 up lead, ensuring that the trophy came to Barassie. A solid par 4 at the 18th completed an excellent 1 hole win.
In the final game, Elliot Masterson was really up against it from the start, giving away 10 shots. Despite reaching the 16th a credible 5 over par, still lost his match 3 & 2.
This is an excellent result for a very young team, coming out on top under the nerves and pressure of competitive golf.
Well done, Boys!
