PHOTO SUBMITTED

BUCKHANNON — Since league play opened up just over two weeks ago, the teams participating the 2022Buckhannon Country Club’s Bob Cupp Memorial Golf have been showing off just how competitive this league is, as several of the matches within the open two weeks decided by thin matches.  

Week one, saw the teams of Baker Tilly and Hank Ellis Insurance establish themselves as premier threats for the league’s team title, with the two claiming a pair of convincing victories against the teams of High Point Construction and Sam’s Pizza, respectively.  

As week two got underway last Wednesday, April 20, the UniFirst Corporation team pushed themselves out to an early season lead with a strong day on the course in their match against week one’s dominate team, Baker Tilly. UniFirst Corporation beat Baker Tilly to grab sole control of first-place in the standings at the end of week two, with a 18-16 lead. The win pushes their total on the year to 36 1/2 points.  

While the Baker Tilley team came up short in terms of team success, Owen Bragg earned praise for individual performance, taking both Low Actual and Low Net honors for his play during his team’s close loss.  

Deadlocked in a tie for second-place in the Bob Cupp Memorial Golf League are the teams of: Hank Ellis Insurance and Custom Cabinets, who each trail UniFirst Corporation by just a 1/2 point in the standings. Both the second-place teams won their matches this week, with Hank Ellis Insurance beating First Community Bank (17 1/2 - 14) and Custom Cabinets beating Feola’s Flowers (18 1/2 - 14 1/2). The wins by both second-place teams offers a glimpse at what is shaping up to be a very interesting race for who sits atop the week #3 leaderboards.  

The team representing Highland Landscaping held firm in its week #1 position at fourth-place, despite suffering a setback to Sam’s Pizza in a close match (18-17 1/2), while Lisa Cain Edward Jones easily outlasted the High Point Construction team (18 - 14).
