Rockmount came up against a very strong team playing away to Co Armagh and suffered a  heavy loss of 5 games and 23 holes. With a lot to prove the team put up a very good response at home winning 4 games  with 16 holes up. unfortunately this was enough.  However all the girls who played on the Minor Cup Team deserve great credit for their commitment, time and effort.

The home leg was played in very changeable conditions, it was cold, there was torrential rain, occasional hail showers and dry periods. Despite the conditions, Rockmount ladies came home with a very creditable 4-1 scoreline with 18 holes up. The away match at Cushendall was surprisingly played on a very pleasant sunny afternoon.  Once Carol and Anne had achieved their wins, the match was over.  Rockmount winning by 6 games to 3 with 1 match called in.

Both matches were played on days when the weather was atrocious.  All the girls are to be commended for playing so well and staying so focussed in the face of driving rain, ferocious hail showers and biting cold.  Although the score after the 1st leg would seem to have been a foregone conclusion, nothing was taken for granted and play at Banbridge was fought as competitively as in the home leg.  No one should be singled out but Bernie's 7 and 6 win at Banbridge was received with delight by all players who were more than happy to be called in. 
 
Next Opponent: Round 2 against Cushendall, Date to be confirmed.

The away match to Greenisland proved to be a very tough encounter.  The first uphill hole was rather daunting.  Weather was very pleasant with some sunshine.
All matches were played in a competitive manner and Rockmount came away with a 3-2 win.  Wendy and Kathleen won their matches while we had to wait a considerable time for Anne to produce her win after having to play 4 extra holes.  I have to thank Noreen who stood in at the last moment and who also had the dubious pleasure of having to go up the 19th. While 3-2 win away from home is very useful, team captain suffered a heavy defeat so we came away with a deficit of 3 holes.
The return leg was played on a glorious afternoon.  Excitement and tension built up as the results came in.  Greenisland once again proved very competitive and managed to win 3 games.  Thankfully Carol and Vi proved winners and their cumulative tally of 10 holes against Grennisland's total of 6 holes meant we won by 1 hole.

The opening leg of the First Round was played away to Downpatrick on a cold but sunny Sunday afternoon. Play was exceptionally slow due to congestion on the course and at one time 3 Minor Cup matches were waiting on the 4th tee.    
 
Some very competitively fought matches saw Rockmount home with 3-2 win and an 8 hole advantage.   

The return leg was played on Monday 23rd April after a postponed start due to course closure because of flooding saw Rockmount ladies romp home with very comfortable wins. 
 
Next opponent:   Greenisland  ( to be played before 4th June)

Playing conditions weren't great for the second round match, standing on the first tee it seemed more like November than end of May. The girls battled their way round despite the wind & rain. One match went to tie hole and lost, 2 matches lost, one match was all square on 18th and last match was won but it was too late. Unfortunately it wasn't our day.
 
Thanks to everyone who played in both rounds.

On a cold windy Monday Morning the Minor Cup kicked of the season at Ardglass against Clandeboye.. Vi got off to a great start and was in very quickly with a 7&6 win followed by Carol winning 5&3, Wendy was 4 down after 4 holes and managed to get the match turned around and won 2&1 Aileen & Noreen's matches both went down the 18th, we had our 3 wins so it didn't matter.
Well done ladies and on to the 2nd round against Mahee Island at Carnalea on Wednesday 25th May..
