Social Wanderers 0 Thundershots 4

Wanderers were buoyant after last weeks emphatic win, but they were brought down to earth with a bump by in form Thundershots.

Finally some proper golfing weather has arrived.

This has been reflected in the number of entries to recent competitions, most of which have seen more than 50 members competing for prizes.

The golf course is now fully operational with all tees and greens in play.

The monthly medal competition took place earlier this month. Ian Smith won his first medal with a fantastic score of nett 62, Cliff Ralph was second with 63 and Pete Bradbury third with 64.

The next round of the Captain's day winter league competition was played out on Wednesday March 5.

And strangely enough the club captain Pete Bradbury took top honours with 22 points over nine holes.

Ian Smith continued his recent run of form with 19 points taking second place by virtue of countback in front of Steve Arthur who was third with the same score.

Last Sunday saw 65 members battle it out in an 18 hole Stableford competition played in glorious conditions.

Liam Miller playing off a handicap of six took top honours with a very creditable score of 39 points.

Paul Couch was second with 38 and Ruben Averill third with 36 points.

The Seniors' winter league competition saw Mervyn Beattie secure top spot with a fantastic score of 42 points. Lloyd Addison was second with 39 points and Roger Hall third with 39 by virtue of countback.

A mixed Greensomes competition on Saturday over 14 holes saw the virtually unbeatable pairing of Ian and Sam Harris secure top spot again with 26 points.

Brenda Morton and Derek Williams were second with 25 and Julie and Pete Bradbury third with 23.

Gorran 2 Roche 2

Neither side had played since before Christmas owing mainly to the wet weather and waterlogged pitches.

Gorran's tally of postponements up to and including March 1 was nine, with seven of the games put off because of wet grounds and a further two of the matches because there were not enough referees to go around.

Despite their recent competitive inactivity, both sides started at a brisk pace.

Roche went ahead in the eighth minute when Andy Geach was allowed to head in from close range.

This setback prompted Gorran to go on the attack but without success.

Henry Forsyth's shot hit a post and rolled clear; Peter Kirby's hard drive was well saved by visiting 'keeper Matt Lean and numerous scoring opportunities for Gorran went begging through poor marksmanship and more than an element of good fortune for the visitors.

The single goal was the difference at the interval but within five minutes of the re-start Jamie Stephens put Roche further ahead when he forced the ball into the net as Gorran's 'keeper dived at his feet.

David Jones reduced Gorran's deficit on 65 minutes from a well-judged free kick just outside the penalty area and ten minutes later the same player scored with an almost carbon copy goal from the same position to bring the scores level.

Running forward in an attempt to win the game, Gorran were in danger of being caught on the break but the defence held firm. The game finished all-square on a pitch which started and finished as a glue-pot - but at least the game was played.

Gorran plan to use a roller to good advantage before their game this Saturday, at home to Tregony.
