Son­ning turn it around to move into Hill­man Tro­phy fi­nal

The Wokingham Paper - - ROUND-UP -

SON­NING came from be­hind to de­feat Don­ning­ton Grove and move into the Hill­man Tro­phy fi­nal.

Son­ning found them­selves 3-1 be­hind af­ter four matches, but a storm­ing come­back saw the hosts tri­umph 4-3 to book their spot in the show­down at Hun­ter­combe Golf Club next month.

Rod­ney Bar­ratt’s 2up win was a rare bright spot early on as Kelvin Hodges, John Cameron and Sean Green were all beaten.

But Mark Sawyer (3&2) and Colin Hodges (8&7) se­cured big vic­to­ries to send the tie all the way, where Paul Sid­dle won 2&1.

Else­where, 20 golfers made the trip to Guernsey for the Ball Trough Tro­phy, hav­ing won when the is­lan­ders trav­elled to Berk­shire back in June.

Satur­day’s four­balls ended with Guernsey 6.5-3.5 ahead with the pairs of Mal­colm Reid/Dun­can Forbes, Bill Branagh/Chris Gur­ney Jr and Mark Sawyer/Alex Mea­sures earn­ing Son­ning points.

And while the vis­i­tors fought back on Sun­day thanks to full points from Branagh/Richard Ginn, Reid/ Peter David­son, Forbes/ Gra­ham Burgess, Richard Shillito/Sean Green and Paul Rob­son/Mea­sures, Guernsey edged to a 10.5-9.5 suc­cess.

Son­ning’s sec­ond string picked up a 3-2 league win over East Berks for their first away vic­tory of the sea­son. Ja­son Kemp­son and Mark No­viss (6&5) posted the biggest suc­cess.

The 4th side were beaten 3-2 at Gor­ing and Streat­ley.
