Europe Retain The Weber Cup

Europe Retain The Weber Cup

October 12th, 2014

Mika Koivuniemi’s men were 14-10 down at the start of Sunday evening’s final session but singles victories for Martin Larsen, Stuart Williams and the captain pulled the holders to within one point of Team USA.

Chris Barnes returned his side to two ahead but subsequent wins for Dominic Barrett and Koivuniemi saw the match levelled at 15-15.

Williams then put the hosts in front for the first time but debutant Wes Malott forced a tie-break Baker match with a win over Koivuniemi in a captain’s pick singles match.

Europe won that tie breaker though, and with it the Weber Cup XV for a seventh time.
