2020 03 junior pennantMt Xavier claim the 2020 Junior Pennant title

Mt Xavier have claimed the 2020 Junior Pennant title with a 4.5 to 1.5 victory over Bacchus Marsh West in an absorbing final played at Ballarat Golf Club on Sunday 15th March.

The final margin didn’t do justice to the closeness of the match, as the result was still undecided with the last two games on the 18th green.  Tom Bosworth holed a short putt to defeat Harry Cowan (on their first extra hole) to give Mt Xavier the victory.

Congratulations to Nicholas Crellin, Mo Haintz, Jackson Connor, Tom Boswoth, James Yorke and Eli Smart from Mt Xavier Golf Club on the high quality of their play in the final and for their consistency over the course of the season.
