Final pits Beavers against Spartans

TODAY’S final in the 2013 Scottish Student Sport Golf Team Matchplay Championships at Moray will be a battle of old and new.

Multiple past winners, the “Stirling Spartans” will take on first-time finalists the “Fighting Beavers” of the University of the Highlands and Islands.

In yesterday’s semi-finals, UHI shocked second seeds University of Aberdeen to take both the morning foursome series and the afternoon single series to cruise to an impressive 9-6 win overall.

In the second semi-final, University of Stirling also established an early lead with a 4-1 series victory in the foursomes which they never let go.

Despite valiant rearguard actions by Vincent Blom, Freddie Edmunds and Ben Jamieson (St Andrews), the underlying strength of the Stirling team was brought to bear.

Newly-crowned Scottish individual champion Mathias Eggenberger led the team home with a two-hole victory over Guy Dalziel.
