Dundalk Golf Club are through to the semi-finals of the AIG Women’s Junior Cup after a fantastic win over Ulster North champions Ballycastle in Dundalk last Saturday.
Teenager Anna Rowland held her nerve on the 21st hole of her match against Catherine Black to secure the winning point as Dundalk won 3-2.
In a closely fought contest Dundalk lost the top two matches as Gillian McDonnell was beaten 2&1 by Brenda McNeill while Juliette Morrison took her battle with Mary T McKiernan all the way to the 18th before losing by one hole.
Katie Rowland put the first Dundalk point on the board with a comprehensive 6&4 win over Susan Crawford while Pauline Campbell saw off Fiona McComb on the 16th green as she recorded a 3&2 win.
That left the overall outcome resting on the final match where Rowland came from three down after nine to force the match into sudden death. She holed a clutch putt for par to halve the 20th and then finished the job off on the next hole to book Dundalk’s place in the last four.
Dundalk will now face Munster West champions Castletroy in the All-Ireland semi-finals on Thursday, September 21 in Westport after the Co Limerick club beat Royal Curragh by 3.5 to 1.5 in their quarter-final in Doneraile over the weekend.
With the Revive Active team already preparing for their All-Ireland semi-final against Gowran Park on Saturday, September 16, it promises to be a busy few weeks for the Dundalk ladies. The Revive Active semi-final is scheduled for 11:40 in Knightsbrook with the final against either Gort or Cahir Park fixed for 10:00 the following day.
