MAGA, KCGA End 2017 Mid-America Cup in Tie

Team MAGA found themselves down 3-1 after Saturday’s Four-Ball matches of the 2017 Mid-America Junior Cup.  Needing 3.5 points on Sunday to bring the cup, it was a tall order against a very talented KCGA squad at Shadow Glen Golf Club. 

Leading off Sunday was 2017 MAGA Junior Boy’s Champions Max Kreikemeier and Shannon Gould.  While the match started off slow, Kreikemeier/Gould had a 2up lead at the turn.  Four consecutive wins from holes 10-13 put that first needed point on the board for MAGA with a 6&5 win.  

The all southpaw side of Claire Solovic and Jack Cronin came out of the game with 4 straight holes won to start the day and never looked back.  They would close out their match on hole 15 with a 5&3 win for point 2.  

 The final match out was Brooke Bierman and Tyler Linenbroker who battled with back and forth in their match the entire front 9 to All Square.  They grabbed the lead on hole 10 and would close out with wins on holes 15 and 16 for the 4&2 win.

MAGA needed 3.5 points on Sunday and the final match out was Tommy Alferman and Lacey Snell.  They ran into a buzzsaw side from KCGA and just could not get on track on the day.  Ultimately falling 6&4 for KCGA lone point Sunday.

The 2017 matches would end in tie at 4-4 for the third time in its 19 year history and KCGA would retain the cup for the year.  Check out all of the match results via the link below.
