Match Play Captain Barry Lakas reported “Congratulations to the BHCC Sr. Match Play team. We beat a very good Polo CC team in the first round of the NASMGA playoffs this afternoon. The final score was Berkeley Hills 10.5 points- Polo 7.5 points. Notable performances were the teams of Harvey Gammon/Rick O'Dom, and
Ed Odmark/Paul Dillon taking all three of their points with the teams of Bob Beebe/PaulWhite and
Jim Andersen/Hugh McGonagle taking two out of three points.
Great playing guys!”
The match was very exciting and the winning result wasn’t sure until the final. After the first four flights were completed, Berkeley was trailing 5.5 to 6.5. Ed Odmark and Paul Dillon added 3 points to our total bringing us up to 8.5, still a half point short of a tie. But the last flight of Jim Andersen and Hugh McGonagle came in with the
final 2 points giving us the win. We knew that the Polo Team wanted very badly to win after last month’s reversal of their winning score in September. Special thanks to Shawn McKinnon and the pro staff for their work in
getting the match ready to go at the last minute. Also, thanks to assistant pro Drew Lagan for playing in the pro position and shooting a 72! Well done. NASMGA has determined that Berkeley will play a very tough St. Ives in
the semi-finals. St .Ives accumulated 55 points during the abbreviated preliminary season, the highest of all 18 teams in the match play program. The match is scheduled November 5 at St. Ives.
