Pupuke’s dominance in the North Harbour Women’s Nine Hole Pennants Competition was crushed by Warkworth when the local team triumphed in the final round last month.
Warkworth was running third in the competition when it went into the final round against Pupuke, which has won the competition every year bar two since the competition started in 2007.
“We wanted to play well enough to cement our third place spot, because Warkworth has never placed in the competition before,” Warkworth team convenor Judi Dooling says. “But then everyone in the team played fantastically and we leapfrogged over Waitemata and trounced Pupuke to win.
“I honestly don’t know how we did it!”
Members of the team who played in the final round were Shirley Wilson, Helen Kelly, Wendy Moore, Judi Dooling, Colleen Hicks and Margaret Foster. Other Warkworth team members in the comp were Bella Boston, Joy Martin, Gail Cash, Pippa Edwards and Lesley Stone.
