Junior Pennants Final Round Sunday 9 September at Titirangi

The final round of the Auckland Junior Pennants scratch division was held on Sunday 9 September at Titirangi.

Remuera 1 only needed one point (ie one win) to close out the season and win overall. Connor Barker got off to a great start to get three up early on in his match against Jay Michael Lindsay from Pakuranga early on. Ultimately he won 3 and 2 after never really being challenged.

Kelly Wu struggled from early on and sadly was never really in the match against Henry Wang. She eventually lost 5/4 but did put up a better fight towards the end.

Playing 3 and 4 respectively Grace Jung and Nathan Smith had much more competitive matches, with Grace getting back from 3 down to be even before ultimately losing 2/0 against Stephen Liu. Nathan Smith got up to 3 against Ryan Forde and never relinquished the lead to win 3/2. The team ended up drawing 2 all but this was enough to give them a comfortable win over Akorana in second.

Remuera 2 was playing Royal Auckland, who only fielded 3 players on the day. Jamie Lansi had a default win, with Karl Jorgensen easily dispatching the no. 2 player 8/7. It was a one way match.

Playing 3 and 4 respectively Hugh Lee and Findlay McKechnie both had more difficult days. Hugh struggled and finally lost 5/4 while Findlay to his credit hung in the match to close it out 3/2 to see the team win 3:1. Sadly that wasn’t enough to get up and in the end Remuera 2 finished the competition a close 4th just behind Pakuranga.
