AYRSHIRE JUNIOR GOLF LEAGUE- Champions hopes hang by a thread, whilst West Kilbride and Ballochmyle finish on top of their sections

Three of the 4 League Championship qualifying sections have been decided, with West KIlbride, Ballochmyle and either Ravenspark or Ardeer going into the last four.

In Section A, The season ended in farce, with Routenburn conceding 4 of their 8 section matches in total, including an early match at Ballochmyle and the return on Sunday at Routenburn, for which Ballochmyle turned up as arranged, to find an open competition taking place and no Routenburn team to play. St. Cuthbert completed their programme of matches with a 4-2 win at New Cumnock on Saturday to keep their qualifuication hopes alive, but the inability of Routenburn to fulfill thier fixtures, and the resultant match award to Ballochmyle saw the latter club through to the semi finals by virtue of tie difference over all matches, Ballochmyle and St. Cuthbert being tied on points at the top of the table. Final positions in the section are :-

TEAM P/W/D/L/F/A/Dif/Pts
BALLOCHMYLE 8/5/2/1/32.5/15.5/+17/24
ST. CUTHBERT 8/5/2/1/29.5/18.5/+11/24
ANNANHILL 8/2/3/3/21/27/-6/14
ROUTENBURN 8/2/1/5/22/26/-4/10
NEW CUMNOCK 8/1/2/5/15/33/-18/6

In Section B, West Kilbride claimed the semi final place by virtue of a 4.5-1.5 win at St. Meddans. This, coupled with a 3-3 draw at largs and a defeat by 4-2 for largs at Beith, halted Largs' hopes for the 2005 Championship. Present positions are :-

WEST KILBRIDE 8/6/1/1/30/18/+12/26
LARGS 7/4/1/2/24.5/16.5/+8/18
BEITH 8/4/1/3/24.5/23.5/+1/18
BARASSIE 7/2/1/4/22.5/19.5/+3/10
ST. MEDDANS 8/1/0/7/12.5/35.5/-23/4

In Section C, positions remain the same, with three fixures left to play. Present positions in the section are :-

TEAM P/W/D/L/F/A/Dif/Pts
AYR BELLEISLE 8/5/2/1/29.5/18.5/+11/24
TROON WELBECK 6/3/2/1/22.5/13.5/+9/16
KILBIRNIE PLACE 6/4/0/2/18/18/0/16
LOUDOUN 7/3/0/4/22/20/+2/12
ST. NICHOLAS 7/0/0/7/10/32/-22/0

In Section D, A similar problem to that in Section A has arisen, with Skelmorlie conceding matches away to Ardeer and at home to Ravenspark. Consequently, with only the two matches between Caprington & Skelmorlie remaining to be played, the present positions are:-

ARDEER 6/4/0/2/21.5/14.5/+7/16
RAVENSPARK 6/4/0/2/21.5/14.5/+7/16
CAPRINGTON 4/2/0/2/9.5/14.5/-5/8
SKELMORLIE 4/0/0/4/7.5/16.5/-9/0
