JOONDALUP and Royal Fremantle will again battle it out for Golf WA’s boys’ division 1 title this weekend after Mt Lawley snared an upset win over last year’s runners up at Gosnells Golf Club.

Royal Fremantle’s 4.5-2.5 loss has left the side equal on six points with defending champions Joondalup, with just next weekend’s round at Lake Karrinyup Country Club remaining.

Joondalup defeated Mandurah 5.5-1.5 and in the battle of their young guns, Josh Greer defeated Mandurah’s Connor McKinney 5& 3.

The girls’ division 1 battle is just as tight, with Gosnells and Mt Lawley Devils equal on top with six points each.

If both sides were to lose this weekend at Kwinana Golf Club, Mt Lawley Angels could sneak into contention, given they trail the leaders by just one point.

Madison Hinson-Tolchard continued to lead her Gosnells side towards a championship with a 3&2 win over Royal Fremantle’s No.1 Abbie Teasedale, while the Angels and Devils also recorded easy wins at Royal Fremantle Golf Club.

Melville Glades and The Vines will face off for the boys’ division 2 title next weekend, with the top teams set to meet at Joondalup Country Club.

Both recorded easy victories to set up the mouth-watering clash.

WA Golf Club has clinched the boys’ division 3 competition after a dominant 4.5-1.5 win over Mt Lawley, giving the side an unassailable three-point lead at the top of the table.

Tyreece Jeakins and Liam Barclay led from the front with strong wins, before Riley Gott and Shaun Raj finished off the fixture to secure the title.

Gosnells just need a victory over bottom-placed Pinjarra this weekend to win the boys’ division 4 flag, having kept their undefeated season ongoing with a whitewash win over Sun City.

Pinjarra are yet to win a game this season.

Melville Glades/South West will need a victory over Joondalup/Sun City at Kwinana Golf Club this weekend to have any hope of taking the title in girls’ division 2.

Joondalup sit unbeaten at the top of the table after a 4-1 victory of Mt Lawley, with the side sitting two points clear of Melville Glades/South West with a round to play. Given both sides play each other, if the top side wins, the competition is all but over.
