Justbet Springs march to semis

Published:Thursday | May 24, 2012 | 12:00 AM

Justbet Springs effectively booked their spot in the semi-final of the 2012 LIME Cup team match-play golf tournament following a masterful display last Sunday at the Constant Spring Golf Club to wrap up their second win in as many outings.

The Justbet Springs team amassed an impressive 20.5 points in rounds three and four as a combination of powerful swings and steady nerves saw them get by the previously unbeaten CEEN Falcons and defending champions, Advantage Generals.

With only one round of matches to be contested on June 5 before the four semi-finalists are confirmed, an intriguing tussle for the remaining spots is anticipated, with LIME Lions (16) looking to replace the Falcons (19.4), who currently occupy fourth spot.

Springs lead the six-team standings with 40.5 points, followed by Buccaneers (28), Advantage Generals (22.5), with SportsMax MaxPak at the back of the pack on 11.5.

Final fights

The fifth and final round will see the Buccaneers facing Springs, Lions playing MaxPak and Generals, and the Falcons swinging clubs ahead of the semi-final round, which tees off on the same day at the Cinnamon Hill golf course in Montego Bay.

The 2012 LIME Cup final and consolation round will take place on June 17.

In Sunday's action, the Springs turned back the Falcons 8.5 to 1.5 in the day's early match before returning to inflict a 4-1 defeat on Advantage Generals.

Advantage Generals had won their opening match of the day with a 5.5 to 4.5 triumph over Sportsmax MaxPak in round three. The other round-three match saw the Buccaneers of Appleton Estate get the better of the LIME Lions 6-4.

The Lions would, however, get their name in the winners' column for the first time during this year's competition as they condemned the Falcons to their second defeat of the day, clipping them 3-2.

Sportsmax MaxPak also endured a poor day on the course, with a 4-1 loss to the Buccaneers their second of the day.
