Aberdeenshire and Renfrewshire first-day

winners at women's county final

Aberdeenshire, the Northern Division champions, took a first step towards the Scottish women's county championship by beating Dumfries-shire 6-3 on the opening day of the county finals at Kilmacolm Golf Club today.
In the other tie, defending champions Renfrewshire staged an outstanding comback from 2pts in arrears after the foursomes to beat past champions Midlothian 5.5-3.5
Aberdeenshire built up a useful 2pt lead at the end of the morning foursomes and edged the afternoon singles 3.5-2.5.
Kimberley Beveridge (Aboyne) partnered Sammy Leslie (Murcar Links) to victory in the foursomes and maintained a 100 per cent record by beating Fiona Allison 8 and 7 in the singles.
Aberdeenshire's Curtis Cup player Shannon McWilliam (Aboyne) halved the top singles tie with former professional Corisande Lee.
Defending champions Renfrewshire were overpowered in the foursomes by Midlothian who led 2.5-0.5 at lunch-time but bounced back off the ropes to win five of the six afternoon singles for an overall 5.5-3.5 victory - a remarkable recovery.
