Juniors Fight for a great Half

Elderslie were welcomed to Erskine last night. With Erskine keen to take the points, and their first 3 players having low handicaps (2 – 8) we knew it would be a tall order to take anything from the game.  Regardless Lewis, Ben and Caolan lead the way and fought bravely to take all 3 players to the 16 and 17th hole. Behind them young Rhys, Jack and Evan utilised their handicaps to try and restore some Elderslie pride. This is where the tie heated up, all 3 Elderslie players fluctuated from being behind to even.  Confident Rhys slowly pulled away to win his game on the 16th with Evan and Jack T continuing to fight. Consistent Evan won on the 17th  with a super chip to 1ft. So it was down to Jack T , 1 down through 15, he played wonderfull to win the next to holes and half the 18th to win his match

Not forgetting the reserve match with Josh C and Josh G , this resulted in a tight match that would have resulted in a Elderslie win (we ended on 17th due to timings). A great game played in a friendly manner; all the kids (and the adults) enjoyed the great food afterwards and the interesting speeches.
