Sheikh battles Her Way to Women’s Match Play Victory at Cataraqui G&CC


A picture-perfect day greeted the final day of the Ontario Women’s Match Play Championship from Cataraqui Golf & Country Club. The beautiful Monday morning saw two tough semi-finals ending before the 18th hole, followed up by a see-saw battle in the afternoon finals.

In the midday match, Raesa Sheikh (Public Player Member) jumped out to an early lead over Aryn Matthews (Bigwin Island Golf Club), watched herself drop back two holes, and then never look back cruising to a 4&3 victory and claiming the hardware.

The morning semi-finals saw Sheikh defeat Lexie MacKay (King Valley Golf Club) 4&2, while Matthews took down Team Ontario member Nyah Kelly (Lindsay Golf & Country Club) 4&3.
