Under 18s battle hard in second away loss

 

The East Riding under 18's headed to West End Golf Club looking to make amends after a loss last time out, this time versus last years champions, Halifax and Huddersfield.

 

The morning foursome produced some great golf from both teams with pretty much one sided matched all the way through. The Hull team of Jacob Hodgson and George Clark won 5&4, whilst debutant Harry Anderson and Tom Benson claimed a 3&2 victory.  Jake Sowden and Tommy Risker where 3 down with 4 to play and salvaged a half meaning the East Riding were 7-5 behind...not insurmountable.

 

Into the afternoon singles and the match was soon level as Captain Tom Duck claimed his second singles win of the year with a 4&3 victory.  It was a great start to the afternoon, but sadly one that would not last.  Halifax and Hudderfield won the next 3 matches giving them a firm hold on the tie.  Wins for Tommy Risker (5&4), Tom Benson (3&2) and Will Storr (3&2) gave the East Riding consolation points, but in the end a 23-13 scoreline favoured the home team.

 

Our next fixture is against Sheffield Union at Filey Golf Club on 2nd June...it would be great to see a big support for the first home game of the season.
