SSS League – 1st Team Fixtures

SSS League – 1st Team Fixtures

28/10/2018

This semester was to prove to be one of the most difficult for Saints Golf in the league for many years. An early, narrow defeat by Aberdeen was followed up by a win away on the road to Edinburgh at Gullane. We then suffered a  comprehensive defeat at home to league winners, Stirling, before an agonising one match defeat to UHI. Going in to the final game against Strathclyde we knew a win was essential for qualification but after only managing a draw it looked like our hopes of reaching a 3rd consecutive national final were over before the end of semester one. However a rules technicality  meant the fixture had to be replayed, this took place at the end of January with the Saints edging Strathclyde 6-4 to finish the league in 4th place, thereby securing a place in the National Championship draw.

Results: 

Aberdeen (5.5-4.5) LOST

Edinburgh (7-3) WIN

Stirling (7.5-2.5) LOST

UHI (5.5-4.5) LOST

Strathclyde (6-4) WIN *In Replay
