Metro Senior League teams have mixed results at Hiawatha

Reversing last week’s results the Brookview Golden team was hot and took down the team from Green Haven 18-5 and shot themselves back into 2nd place, only ten points behind the first place University team. The Valley team, playing against the first place team lost 9-15, falling one place to 6th place of the 16 teams. The two teams continue to proudly represent Brookview’s BMGA across the Metro Senior League

The Golden team started out steady but put their collective foot on the pedal with all four players winning their back nine matches. @Gary-Ridout and @Stan-Hop each shot net 73 while @Daniel-Peters and @Chris-Reuter each shot a net 76! It is surprising they didn’t win all the points! Gary and Chris were able to tie the front and win their back nine and matches. Stan’s opponent struggled while Stan was solid and took all 6 points. Dan’s opponent had a great day shooting a net 74 and squeaking out a few more holes than Dan.

The Valley team battled the University team. @Peter-Steichen had a great round shooting a net 70 but was run over by a train named Skip Schultz, the league coordinator and University team captain who shot a gross 69, net 65. He had the best score of the day. Still, Peter only lost by one hole on the front and one hole on the back. Sometimes life just isn’t fair! @Dean-Penk also shot a net 70 and feels like he should have done better than tie the front nine. He came back strong and won the back and the match for 5 points. @Chuck-Bernardy had a close match losing the front nine and winning the back nine and tying the match for 3 points. @Richard-Courtney┬áhad a tough day but was able to scratch out a tie on the back to pick up one point against an opponent that shot a net 73.

Next week Fountain Valley hosts. Golden takes on 12th place Gross and Valley takes on the 11th place hosts. Both teams are eying the July 23rd match when they play each other at Valleywood.
