After not playing in 2020 due to COVID, the 2021 Pennant season started on Sunday with mixed results for the two Nedlands Teams
At Hartfield a solid 5-2 win against well fancied opponents, The Vines, brought a smile to the faces of team captain Ben Cullinan and Manager Marty Morris.
All matches were close with 6 of the 7 matches going to at least the 17th hole. Four were decided at the 18th and Harry Traylen in fact went to the 20th. Refer scores below.
Next week the team travels to ROYAL PERTH to play HARTFIELD commencing at 11.30am– so please support the team in their quest to get to Division One in 2022
