Cynthia Bounleutay and Alison Gorman needed more than 18 holes to decide the winner of their match play round. Bounleutay finally pulled it out on their 20th hole to advance to the Rockford Women's Golf Classic championship final.
"I was shaking so badly," Bounleutay said. "I wanted this so bad. That last putt came at the right time."
In the other semi-final match, Boylan senior Melissa VanSistine defeated Allee Graceffa 2-and-1. VanSistine birdied 15 to take a two-hole lead, then finished it off on 17.
She hopes to become the youngest winner in tournament history at the age of 17.
"It would be amazing," VanSistine said. "I couldn't ask for anything better right now. It's only my 2nd year playing in this. Just making it this far is great but I would love it if that could happen."
Bounleutay and VanSistine grew up playing golf together around the Rockford area. They tee off at 7:30 a.m. Thursday in the championship match.
