England beat Scotland 8 1/2-6 1/2 in today's Under-16s boys' golf international for the Shamash Quaich at Dundonald Links.
The Scots lost the foursomes by 1pt (2-3) and the singles also by 1pt (4 1/2- 5 1/2). It could have been a different story in the morning play when three of the five ties went to the 18th and Scotland did not win any of them. Two were halved and England won the other.
Scotland's only foursomes winners were the all-St Andrews pairing of Ewan Scott and Ben Kinsley who beat Rob Burlison and Cameron Long by 2 and 1 in the top game.
Singles winners for Scotland were Bradley Neil (Blairgowrie), Callum Gorrie (Kilmarnock Barassie), Calum Hill (Tantallon) and Euan Walker (Kilmarnock Barassie).
