The annual Sussex Boys v Sussex Girls match took place at East Brighton Golf Club on Thursday 6th August.
The match plays an important part in the girls' preparation for their Junior County Matchweek next week, and the boy's for the 6 boy foursomes also next week.
Weather conditions in the morning foursomes were damp and very windy. The girls played well, but just went down 2-3 after the morning session to the boys.
In the afternoon, the weather conditions improved and this seemed to spur the girls on. A 2-3 deficit had been improved to 7.5 points with two matches remaining.
This was left down to the final two matches for the remaining half that the girls required and Brandy Rook holed a 20ft putt against Elliott Webster to win the hole and the match for the girls.
Well done to the girls, and good effort to the boys. Both teams will have picked up some valuable experience ready for their important matches next week.
