Tullamore, a big club with no less than six single figure players on their team.were the opponents for B & S who had just the one single figure player were very much the underdogs.

The 2nd pair out had been 2 up but lost the 15th and also the 16th to a lovely birdie from the 1 handicapper. All square playing 17th the B & S girls won with a shot then on to the 18th the opposition needing to win. Margaret McConnell after a great drive played a brilliant 2nd shot into strong win to land a few inches short of the green then the 1 handicapper after even a longer drive pulled her 2nd shot a little to the left but with a clear shot to the pin. She overcooked it a bit and missed the putt. ~Game over, Margaret put her long putt close to the pin to win.
