WGAP Amateur and Senior Match Play Finals Set

Our Amateur and Senior Match Play Finals are tomorrow at Riverton Country Club.

The Amateur final has two Inter-City teammates facing off.  Ava O’Sullivan (Applecross) was the low qualifier (71) and won her semi-final match today against Meghan Adams (Wilmington) 7&6.  She will face Riley Quartermain (Llanerch) who had a very close semi-final match against Barbora Millichip (Honeybrook).  The match came down to the 18th hole where Quartermain made a 4 foot birdie putt to win the match 1 up.

The Senior Championship Flight has our defending champion Suzi Spotleson (RiverCrest) facing a newcomer, Jane Sassaman (DuPont).  Spotleson defeated fellow RiverCrest member, Lisa Klein in another close semi-final match, coming down to the 18th hole, where Spotleson held on to win 1 up.  Sassaman’s match was equally close against her opponent, Stephenie Harris (Huntingdon Valley).  Harris’s drive went OB on 18, forcing her to have to press.  Sassaman remained steady, winning the hole, and the match 1 up.

The Senior First Flight has Anne Sonoga (Medford Village) facing Susie Kirk (Tavistock).  Sonoga played Virgil Maderich (Riverton) in today’s semi-final match.  Maderich tried to use the home course to her advantage, but Sonoga held on, winning the match, 2 and 1.  Kirk faced Monica Pedano (Springhaven).  She closed out the match on the tricky par-3 16th hole, winning the match 3 and 2.

The Senior Second Flight has DuPont’s Julie Smack facing Meadia Height’s Lisa Dichter.  Smack won her match against Meg Carr (St. Davids) 4 and 2, winning the 16th hole to close out the match.  Dichter faced Karen McFadden (Overbrook).  She won the match 4 and 3, closing out the match on the par 5 15th.
