Ballarat and Buninyong faced off in the 2018 BDGA Junior Pennant Final at Mount Xavier Golf Course today with Ballarat running out winners in a very competitive day’s golf.
Both sides played some outstanding golf in the fine conditions, but it was the boys from Ballarat who stepped up to capture the champions trophy, winning 3 1/2 to 1 1/2 over a gallant Buninyong.
Kieran Chapis (BAL) and Liam Howlett (BAL) got Ballarat off to a great start, scoring victories over Luke Inglis (BUN) 5/4 and James Inglis (BUN) 6/5 respectively, to go two up early in the clash.
An exciting battle followed between Joel Smith (BUN) and Ryan Wilson (BAL) with neither giving an inch before fighting out a well earned draw in the closest match of the final.
In the next match Brandon Davidson (BAL) got the better of Paddy Murphy (BUN), winning 5/4, to give Ballarat an unassailable lead.
David O’Donnell (BUN) got one back for Buninyong late in the day when he defeated Kacee Kirwan-Hamilton (BAL) 2Up in a tight affair.
All matches were of a high standard and played in great spirits, which is a credit to all involved.
