 On-form Murcar Links through to Northern Counties Cup semi-finals at Lossie

The Northern Counties Cup tournament is down to the semi-final stage on Sunday morning at the Moray Golf Club links at Lossiemouth. Dark horses Turriff play Murcar Links at 8.30 while Inverness play Moray 1 at 8.45.
The final will tee off at 1.30pm.
 Royal Aberdeen, beaten finalists last year, went down in the second of this year's tournament, beaten by two holes by Nairn 1 in a very close match today (Sat). 
During the morning play in some of the matches had to be suspended after torrential rain and hailstones made the course white for a time. 
Two matches, Royal Dornoch 1 v Elgin 1 and Murcar Links v Forres, went to the 19th to settle their games, which also held up proceedings in the afternoon.
The young team of Nairn 2 ran out of steam, losing the last hole of the second match to lose the game to Turriff although they have had a great performance for such a young team. 
The only other surviving second team, Moray 2, were beaten by an on form Murcar Links team with their first pairing of Adrian Styles and Bryan Innes two under par for their round. 
Royal Dornoch 1 KO'd Elgin I but were beaten at the 4th extra hole by Inverness.
Moray 1 must be strong contenders now for the title after defeating the 2015 champions, Nairn 1, by six holes.
