Winning streak continues for Under 18's team

The East Riding u18's moved their winning streak on to 4 with a hard fought victory over a strong Leeds team at Hainsworth Park.



The East Riding made just one change from their last outing with Jake Sowden coming in to replace Jack Maxey, so keeping the spine that won so convincingly last time out. 


At one point during the morning foursomes it looked like finishing 6 points apiece with George Clark and Jacob Hodgson along with Harry Wescott and Matt McDonnell 2 down with 4 to play and 4 down with 5 to play respectively.  George and Jacob won 3 out of the last 4 to claim 2 points, but perhaps more importantly Harry and Matt battled to a half to give the East Riding a 9-3 lead at lunch.


The momentum was certainly with the East Riding as they won 3 out of the top 4 games with victories from George Davies, Jake Sowden and Tommy Risker to put the East Riding in touch distance of another win.  After the impressive Jack Northgraves won his match 5&4 it was left to Tom Benson to roll in a 45 foot putt on his final hole to record a 2up victory.  His victory ensure the East Riding won for the forth time in a row and remain on course for a strong finish to the season


In the Player of the Year competition it is all change at the top as Captain Tom Duck uncharacteristicly failed to take any points which opened the door to his challengers.  Early season leader Will Storr collected 2 points for the match to close the gap, but the big winner of the day was Tommy Risker.  2 victories meant 6 points and top spot over Tom and Will.


Unfortunatley Tom Benson(who scored 6 points in the match) will miss the last match of the season meaning Tommy, Tom and Will will battle it out for this years Player of the Year.
