Over the weekend the Otago Women play Southland in the annual Salisbury Cup fixture at the Gore Golf Course on Sunday 6th October.
The morning singles were very tight with Otago taking the morning games 4 ½ to 3 ½, led by wins from Susan Greig at the top with Joanna Booker, Brenda Sutherland and Becky Slade also winning. Amy Johns halved her much.
The afternoon did not go the same way for the Otago Women going down 3 to 5, and this resulted in Southland winning the Salisbury Cup back by a close margin of 8 ½ to 7 ½
Afternoon wins for Otago came from Amy and Joanna with halves to Susan and Brenda.
Joanna came away with two wins for the day. Susan, Amy and Brenda were unbeaten also having a win and a halve each.
