Moreton players share in trophy time

THE Moreton District added another piece of silverware to their trophy cabinet on Sunday.

The district team won the Colts division at the Gold Qld Inter District Challenge against the Darling Downs at Warwick Golf Club.

The win came by the shortest possible margin of one shot from the four best combined scores of five players.

The team of Ipswich Golf Club's Josh Miles, Brentley Heaton, Bart Cafe and Brett Gemmell joined with Sandy Gallop's Ben Daniels to card a combined score of 286.

"I didn't play that great today out there but the other guys played consistently all day just hitting fairways and greens,'' Daniels said.

The form of 18-year-old Cafe was more impressive considering he had been bedridden just hours before tee-off.

He was unsure if he would even be able to take place in the field.

Even as he played the front nine he was visibly not well.

Through it all he managed to card an impressive 77 off the stick.

In other divisions, the masters, opens and junior teams were defeated by the Darling Downs.

Moreton's junior team was impressive on the day, lining up against a Darling Downs team that were all at least 2-3 years older than the young Moreton District team.

The junior boys scores were Matt Frohmuller 73, Alex Thompson 77, Tom Attenborough 83, Alex Littlejohns 85 and Shaun Etherden 93.
