Day two is generally movement day and what a move Midlothian made! On the first tee bright and early stood Jane Turner and Rachael Watton, leading the team into battle against defending East Division and Scottish Champions, Fife. The girls led by example winning by a great 5&4 margin. Next up Karen Marshall and Louise Fraser joined their team mates with a 2&1 victory. Finally in a hard fought battle, Claire Hargan and Wendy Nicholson succombed by 2&1. However a joyful team found themselves 2 – 1 up at lunchtime and after throwing down a sandwich, their attention turned to the afternoon singles as Michaela (below) waited patiently for the action to begin.
The weather and the golf got hotter and hotter as the afternoon went on. Jane lost to level the scores at 2 all, but not for long. Rachael recorded a great victory to put the team ahead just before Louise Fraser lost a gallant fight on the 18th. But before long Midlothian flags were flying as news resounded around the course of a victory by Claire MacDonald, followed swiftly by Claire H. Riding on a cloud up the 18th, Kirsten brought home another half point and another day’s celebrations began.
We would like to add that the team have now been brought back down to earth as preparations for tomorrow’s vital match against Stirling and Clackmannan begin.
