New Brunswick wins Atlantic Junior Match Play Championship

AMHERST, Nova Scotia – It was razor thin victory, but New Brunswick has back-to-back championships at the Atlantic Junior Match Play Championship after taking top honours Wednesday at the Amherst Golf Club.

Heading into the day with a half point lead over Nova Scotia and only a point lead over Prince Edward Island, the New Brunswick team was able to inch ahead in a championship that came right down to the wire.

This marks the second straight year New Brunswick has won the event, as it edged Nova Scotia last year as well. Prince Edward Island, making its first trip to the event in the last two years, was impressive and added to the championship format.
