Day 2 dawned and the team was very prepared and confident for the game against our neighbours Gauteng North. The morning session of foursomes ended evenly on a 2 to 2 draw, this set up a great afternoon round for the singles. The two unions have been in many a tussel in recent years and this day proved no different.
The teams fought hard and played well, with no games given up easily. As usual the games all ended within the last few holes only to see that Gauteng North beat us 7 games to 5. All credit to our opposition that played steadily in the very strong winds and making few mistakes.
Our team can be proud of themselves for not giving up without a fight to the bitter end. The Union is very proud of the diversified and mostly young side that are representing us.
We face Southern Cape tomorrow and look forward to a hard fought game.
