Doull dominant for Mt Lawley
MT Lawley has continued the brilliant start to 2018 with a second straight victory in Men’s Division 1 Pennants at Cottesloe on Sunday.
The recently promoted golf side sits a game clear at the top of the table, with the consistent line-up proving too good for a gallant Gosnells outfit.
Jordan Doull’s return to Perth is yet to yield a loss, defeating Craig Tolchard in an enthralling battle, while Jayson Watson and Rob Hart had relatively easy wins at no.3 and 4.
Sean Grogan put the finishing touches on the win after defeating Paul Crystal 3 and 2.
Royal Perth clinched a classic over Mandurah, with two heavyweights of the competition going head-to-head on Sunday afternoon.
The 4-3 result could have so easily gone the other way, with five matches decided by just one hole.
Cooper Geddes took victory at no.1 over great friend Fred Lee 1up, while experienced campaigner Michael Dennis struck back with a 1up victory of his own.
Royal Perth’s middle order proved the game changer after Joseph Ha, Jamie Warman and Chris Mun all secured important victories to seal the contest.
Reigning premiers Lake Karrinyup escaped with a 4-3 win over a young Joondalup side, led by journeyman Matt Bowra and Nick Curnow.
Joondalup’s Carter Mealing caused the upset of the day, beating a more-fancied Joe Owen 2 and 1, while 14-year old Tom Addy narrowly went down to Bowra 2 and 1.
Despite Mt Lawley sitting in front after two rounds, several sides packed with talent make up the chasing pack.
The competition now returns to Royal Perth Golf Club next weekend.
