LAST Thurs­day, Kyabram Golf Cro­quet trav­elled to Rich River to con­test the fifth round of the pen­nant sea­son. A con­vinc­ing win has put Kyabram into fourth po­si­tion on the lad­der.

Un­for­tu­nately, two play­ers were un­able to play on the day, so the team had to call on two emer­gency play­ers, Chris Puetz and Mar­garet Sul­li­van.

Chris won her first sin­gle game against Rich River Emu’s num­ber one player. Her sec­ond sin­gles game proved very com­pet­i­tive, Chris end­ing up los­ing 5/7. She then went on to win her next two doubles games.

Rayleen McDon­ald starred for Kyabram, win­ning both sin­gles games then both doubles .

Mar­garet Sul­li­van, play­ing her first ever pen­nant game, started off a bit shaky and found the court much faster than she was used to. She lost her first sin­gles 3/7. She started to get used to the courts in her sec­ond game but un­for­tu­nately lost by one point on the last hoop. She also won both doubles games. Well done Mar­garet.

Trudie Ser­afin also strug­gled with the pace of the courts in her first sin­gles match, los­ing 3/7. She then came back and won all her next games.

The fi­nal scores were Kyabram eight games 73 hoops. River River Emus four games 65 hoops The scores for the day were C. Puetz d I. Grant 7/5 R. McDon­ald d B. Floyd 7/6 M. Sul­li­van lt G.
