Despite cold, heavy rain, and the decision to stop play on Saturday, Kirk Barkley and Vicki Boivin hung in to claim the 2014 Morrisburg Golf Club’s men’s and ladies’ championships on the weekend.
Barkley charged out of the men’s B flight for his win, while Boivin put together 18-hole rounds of 93-86 for her 11th club championship win, her ninth consecutive.
The heavy rains on Saturday were a big factor in this year’s club championship. The ladies had the early start and had to call it a day late in the round. They finished up their four holes Sunday morning, took a break and then headed out for the second 18 hole round.
For the men who had the late Saturday tee-off, the weather forced them to call it after nine holes. For the championship they counted their nine holes played Saturday, and the 18 hole round on Sunday.
A flight’s Blake Barry had the lead after Saturday’s nine with a 39, while Barkley was three strokes back in B flight with a 42. Barry posted a 78 in Sunday’s play for a 117 total, while Barkley added a 74, for a 116 which gave him the men’s championship.
Defending 2013 champ, Ron Lapier did not play.
The ladies B flight was highly contested with Linda Barclay claiming the win on retrogression.
Barclay, for her fourth consecutive B championship, posted rounds of 103-96 for a 199 total. Her effort was matched by Judy Laurin who posted 101-98, for a 199 total.
That forced a one-hole sudden death playoff between the two, and after three sudden deaths and still tied, the two agreed to go to retrogression to decide a winner. That gave Barclay, with her 48 front nine score, the win over Laurin, by one stroke.
The ladies section C flight, was not contested and the winner of the D flight championship was Candace Jamieson with 118-123.
In mens play, after Barkley at 116, and Barry at 117 the low shooters, both in B flight were Lee Beaupre at 120 and Don Mabo at 133.
Beaupre got the nod for the senior club champion with his nine hole 43 added to a 77 on Sunday, and Mabo won the B championship, for the second consecutive year (45-88).
In C flight, Bob Barclay and Doug Warner finished tied with 140s. Barclay shot a 48 Saturday and added a 92, while Warner posted a 50 Saturday and added a 90 on Sunday.
Using retrogression Barclay won the C flight championship for the second consecutive year.

The South Dundas “Signature Homestyles” Novice B Lions continued their hot streak last week racking up two more wins to move into first place in the East Division.
The Lions, who jumped over Brockville #2 and South Grenville in standings, won both their games with a 4-3 win over Kemptville #2 and 7-0 win over Athens.
On Sunday afternoon in Athens, the Lions jumped on the Aeros and controlled the play and game earning Brendan Shaver his first shut-out of the season. Although he wasn’t busy in the Lions pipes, Shaver made a couple of big saves to preserve the shut-out.
Ben Lapier led the Lions offensively with four goals.
He started things off in the first period when he picked up a pass from Spencer Barclay and broke in on the Aeros goalie who made the save on his first shot. Lapier then tapped home the rebound.
Kayne McCadden scored on a Kolby Latulippe rebound as the right winger moved the puck up the side boards and got a shot on net. McCadden was there to shoot the rebound home and Nolan Henry picked up the secondary assist.
Lapier scored again in the second when Trent Rae was able to keep the puck alive at the blue line, where Owen Fetterly set in up by burying his backhand shot.
Joshua Broad gave the Lions a 4-0 late in the second scoring into a wide open when Lapier’s shot was stopped. Broad, wide open in the crease, to scored his seventh of the year.
In the third, Latulippe scored and Ben Lapier netted another two for a the 7-0 Lions win.
Cassidy Bilmer and McCadden picked up assists on Latulippe’s goals, while Owen Fetterly and Joshua Broad picked up two assists each on Lapier’s goals.
Wednesday night in Kemptville, the Lions held on to a 4-3 lead as the Panthers pressed for a tie late in the game.
The Lion’s built a 4-1 lead heading into the third period but two third period goals by the Panthers turned it into a nail bitter.
Shaver was sharp in the Lion’s net as he stopped several Panther break aways, while Emytt Fetterly, on defense, kept the Panthers on the outside to eliminate scoring chances.
Ben Lapier opened the scoring on a broken play when Trent Rae iced the puck and the Panther goalie stopped it near the crease but did not get the whistle. When he went to play it away, Ben Lapier was standing right there to knock it in.
Kayne McCadden gave the Lions a 2-0 advantage, when he took the puck off a face-off at the blue line and weaved around two Panther defenders before scoring.
The Panthers made it 2-, but Ben Lapier restored the two goal lead in the second during a Panther line change. Lapier took advantage of the line change to burst through the middle of the ice, earn a breakaway and score on a shot to the glove side.
Owen Fetterly rounded out the Lions scoring from Broad and Lapier who dug the puck out from along the left wing boards and found a wide open Fetterly in the slot.
The South Dundas “Signature Homestyles” Novice B Lions next home game is Sunday, December 18th at 1 p.m. against the Kemptville #1 Panthers.
