Brookview Golden (BG) vs Valley (BV) in the big Metro Senior head to head matchup. One year ago it was a 12-12 draw at Fountain Valley. This year, new teams, one new captain and the match was at Valleywood.
In the A slot, @Tom-Hansen takes on @Pete-Steichen and is giving 2 strokes. They halve the front side for 1 point each – then Tom manages to win the back and the match. Final : BG 5 – BV 1 Great golf by both with Pete at net 74 and Tom net 75.
In the B match, @Steve-Slivken of BV takes on @Steve-Shellenbaum of BG. Again, they spit the front 9, because of a missed putt by Shellenbaum. Shellenbaum (net 75) then puts the sleeper hold on and takes the back 9 and match. Final BG 5 – BV -1
At this point the Golden boys are feeling great – up 10-2 with 2 matches remaining. BV — “not so fast my friend”.
Match 3 it’s @Jim-Husink (BV) vs @Daniel-Peters (old one) (BG). Again – third match in a row they split the front 9. Husnik (net 76) buries Peters winning the final 9 and the match. Final : BV 5 – BG 1.
In the final match it’s @Randy-Zejdlik (BV) vs @Dan-Olson (BG). Again, the opening 9 is halved. In a battle of attrition (both battle-weary net 82’s) Randy takes the homeward 9 and the match. Final : BV 5 – BG 1.
The end result was another damned tie 12-12. Matches went 5-1 / 5-1 / 1-5 / 1-5.
The 12 points dropped BG further back from first place university. They are now 9 points behind first, but hold on to second by 10 over Braemar.
BV did move up in the standings 2 spots all the way to 4th position! They jumped over With and Daytona. BV is just 6 back of third.
