Despite a resounding 5 & 4 victory from The Australian’s Monica Johnson, St. Michael’s were too good for The Kensington outfit, running away with it 3 1/2 to 1 1/2.
Makensie Toole and Teresa Nurdi got the Maroubra women off to the best start with 3 & 2 and 2 & 1 wins, and when Danielle Vasquez accounted for Stefanie Hall 5 &4 the contest was all over, with the match of Australian Master of the Amateurs Champion, Stephanie Kyriacou and Hayley McNeill not required.
Concord, without Australian representative Doey Choi, had a much harder task against a plucky Bonnie Doon outfit, with the semifinal not decided until the final match on the 18th hole.
