Curtis trumps Keppel in junior golf competition on Sunday

GOLF: The Curtis Zone golfers had the edge over Keppel Zone in a closely contested round one of the Lindley's Panel Works Junior Pennants.

Sunday's competition at Boyne Island Golf Club was predicted to be a tight competition, and so it turned out with Curtis Zone narrowly beating their Keppel Zone counterparts six matches to five in the two-round contest.

The match between Rowan Coombes (Keppel) and Gladstone's Jay Clampett was hard fought with Clampett winning the match one up on the 19th hole.

In-form Keppel Zone golfer Sarah Antcliff beat Curtis Zone's Lily McKelvie, also on the 19th hole.

Other Curtis zone winners included Rhian Hamilton, who beat Josh Tann, Joel Spencer, who defeated Toby Maher and Ryan Stitt, who had a win over Ben Swaffield. Morgan Lewis also beat Jamie Lee Salway, while Cara Collins won on the 19th, against Tyran Maher.

In the Keppel contingent, Tanner Ward beat Lachlan Cartwright, Brandon Ingram won against Jayden Bayless, Brody Ingram defeated Cameron Ward and Kiera King triumphed over Georgia McManus.

The second and final round of the junior pennants will be played at Yeppoon Golf Club on March 10, where Keppel will try to win back the title.
