Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT - SAM SMALL­BONE

Moss­man’s A-grade golf team faced a close bat­tle at the FNQ Golf As­so­ci­a­tion Pen­nants Semi Fi­nals against Cairns in Ather­ton on Sun­day.

This is the first Moss­man A-grade team to make the semis in al­most five years how­ever were un­able the boys were un­able to make the fi­nals.

The five Moss­man A-grade play­ers bat­tled in­di­vid­ual matches for 18 against last year’s run­ners-up, Cairns.

Cap­tain of the Moss­man A-grade team Shane Heath won 4-3, 17 year-old El­izah Boon won 7-5, Blain Hay­wood lost 8-7, Brett Jurie lost 6-5 and 17 year-old Daniel Coulthard lost 4-3.

Mr Heath was very proud of his play­ers and is look­ing for­ward to next year’s chal­lenge.

“I was very im­pressed with ev­ery­one’s per­for­mances on the day, es­pe­cially young El­izah who played against Cairn’s num­ber two player Heath Ka­por, one of the strong­est play­ers in far north Queens­land,” he said.

With per­fect weather the Moss­man and Cairns A-grade teams played a close match, with Cairns beat­ing them by 3-2.

“The boys were dis­ap­pointed that they didn’t win the Premier Flag on the day how­ever the match was very close and we only needed to win one more game,” he said.

“I think it is a great achieve­ment to come as far as the semis and we are def­i­nitely look­ing for­ward to an­other com­pe­ti­tion next year.”

Pretty close:

Seven­teen year-olds El­izah Boon and Daniel Coulthard
