MANISTIQUE - Escanaba High School graduate Polly Anderson stayed alive in the Upper Peninsula Ladies Golf Association tournament, topping recent Calumet High School graduate Zoe Woodworth 1-up in a quarterfinal match Wednesday at Indian Lake Golf Course.
Woodworth was 2-up after 16 holes. But Anderson, now a member of Gogebic Country Club in Ironwood, won the next two holes and prevailed in sudden death.
"It was really a fun match to watch," said Jackie Villemure of Indian Lake, who bowed to JoAnn Poncino of Iron Mountain 4 and 3 in another quarterfinal. "They both played real well. One would take advantage of the other once in a while, but I didn't see where either faltered. Polly's drive on 18 was beautiful.
"We had some very nice matches. I thought I played very well. My partner just played better."
Cathy Shamion of Ontonagon also advanced to today's semifinals with a 5 and 4 victory over Judy LaValley of Menominee and Avery Rochester of Wawonowin beat Pam Frankini of Iron Mountain 9-and-8.
