The County Ladies 2nd team travelled to Bedford and County Golf Club for their annual match against Bedfordshire County 2nd team.
County 2nd team Captain Cindy McIntyre continued her policy of selecting a team combining youth and experience by introducing some of the former and current Junior County team players.
In the morning foursomes Cindy McIntyre (Bourn) and Lindie Tapping (Gogs) produced some excellent golf to run out winners by 5 & 4. In the second match Chloe Ashman (Ely City) and Chalani Allen (Gogs) came up against an experienced pair and lost out 4 & 3. Lucy Mills-Cripps (Ramsey) and Morgan Tritton (Gogs) put in a solid performance but lost a close match 2 & 1. This gave Bedfordshire a 2 – 1 lead after the morning foursomes.
In the top singles Lindie Tapping put in a great performance against a very experienced player and ran out a winner by 2 & 1. Ely City’s Chloe Ashman fought very hard to secure a valuable half.
In the third match Cindy McIntyre used her experience to claim a 2 up victory. Chalani Allen (Gogs) came up against a tough opponent and although she fought very hard she lost by 5 & 3.
Current County Junior player Morgan Tritton (Gogs) was in top form as she romped home with an excellent 4 & 3 victory. In the final match Lucy Mills-Cripps (Ramsey) put up a brave fight but just lost out 3 & 1. With Cambs and Hunts winning the singles 3½-2½ the match result was a 4½-4½ draw.
