Broward Summer League played at Jacaranda on September 26th. Jacaranda is a very tough competitive team who knew they had to beat us badly to have a chance to win this year’s league trophy. Unfortunately, they did beat us but it wasn’t enough for them to go into first place... Final Score, Jac 2 1/2, LPGA Amateurs 1 1/2. So here’s how the leaderboard is looking... we are in 1st place with 28 points and one match left to play. Jacaranda is in 2nd place with 27.5 points and no remaining matches. Our only competition now is Fort Lauderdale who currently has 21.5 points, 6.5 points behind us. They canceled their match this week so they still have two matches left to play, October 3rd and Wednesday, October 9th. So, on October 10th, when we play Lago Mar, we’ll know how many points, if any, we’ll have to win to take the trophy. It just could be a photo finish!
