Championship match report

With thanks to Maggie here is a full match report of the championship final !

Rachel went up in the match with a birdie at the 2nd and then won the 3rd and 6th. Alison fought back by winning the seventh and then holed a great putt for a birdie 2 at the challenging short hole 8th where Rachel just lipped out for her birdie. After an excellent approach shot, Alison squared the match at the 9th.

After Rachel winning the 10th, Alison again squared the match with a birdie 4 at the 11th. Rachel again edged ahead and although her first putt at the 14th went 8ft past the hole, she holed the return to go 2 up. At the long 15th Rachel holed from just off the green for an eagle 3 which gave her a three-hole lead. Alison won the 16th to take the match to the 17th, which was halved in 3 to give Rachel a 2/1 win and the championship title.

Congratulations to both girls on an exciting final, played in the best of spirits, it was a pleasure to watch.

Thank you to all who supported and watched the girls over the two days at Haddington. It is most encouraging to see so much talent in the East of Scotland Girls.
