Ladies from Lynn Golf Club played host to Tydd St. Giles Golf Club Ladies in the second round of the Annodata Matchplay Knockout.

Lynn ladies Karen Freezer and Diane Mann lost their games 2 and 3 and one down respectively. Sally Bettinson, who went out last, won her match 5 and 4 before Fan Brown, who won her match by one hole on the 18th.

The result all hinged on the last game still out on the course – between sisters-in-law Maggie Clarkson, from Lynn, against Maria Taylor-Vassall.

Clarkson was one hole up with just the 18th to play. Taylor-Vassall won the hole to halve and family honour was saved.

This meant that Bettinson and Lorraine Gallie had to play a sudden death play-off, which was won by the former on the second hole to send Lynn through to the third round.
