Lots of Pennant’s activity at home over the past few days with successful results for a number of MGGC teams.
On the weekend, MGGC played host for the Men’s Metro Pennants Round 4 with the MGGC Division 2 team climbing off the bottom of the ladder with a 4/3 win over The Vines. Victories to juniors Aaron Hall and Ethan Lim as well as Brad Taylor, who had a hard fought win over 2019 MGGC Junior Classic winner Liam McEvoy and a win by Pennant newcomer Jon Hutchinson, gave the team its first win for the season and will head to Nedlands GC full of confidence on April 28 (following the Easter break) to take on Division 2 ladder leaders’ Hartfield CC, which is undefeated thus far in the 2019 series.
Our South Division 4 Metro Pennant team is yet to record a win after going down 4.5/2.5 in their match against Royal Perth. Congratulations to Chris Lee and Cassidy Steel for their comfortable 3/2 victories, whilst Rod Constable finished square with his opponent. Next round they play Gosnells at RPGC.
The MGGC Senior Individual Pennant team sits equal top of the Division 2 table after Round 2 of the season, halving their game at home on Tuesday with Cottesloe 2.5/2.5. The five member team, headed by MGGC Pennant legend Dennis Warburton, sits on 3 points equal with Cottesloe, both teams having won their first rounds at Mount Lawley. Congratulations to Dennis and Rod Constable who had victories, whilst Asta Mendis secured the all-square half point result by squaring with his opponent at the 18th.
