Hadrian League Match 12 - Stocksfield 6 Ponteland 6

Team was Alex Brown, Josh McCutcheon, Sam Wilkinson, James Cram, Jon Douglas and Ben Squire. This was a highly anticipated game in both camps. Ponteland have been winning the league since the beginning of the season with a very good squad of low handicap players and we have had some good results both home and away but in particular at home losing only 2 games from 30. The resulting matches proved to be a great test for all players with 2 matches finishing on the 17th and 4 finishing on 18 with some great golf being played. Alex was beaten 2-1 by their number 1 off a +3 handicap and Josh had a narrow defeat 1 down on the last. Sam had a great 2-1 win and James went on to beat ex professional Mike Archer 2-1. Jon halved his match as did Ben coming back from 3 down. The result keeps us third in the league, still, for the time being at least but definitely still in the frame. So well done on yet another great team performance. Next up Bedlingtonshire away next Wednesday 25 July . We are also in the semi final of the Davison Cup against Alnwick at Tyneside this Sunday 22 July.
