Norway Win European Boys' Team Championship, Division 2

Norway have triumphed in the European Boys' Team Championship, Division 2.

They faced Portugal in the final match at Pannonia G&CC, Hungary.

Bard Skogen, who topped the individual ranking in the stroke play qualifying, and Jonas Aulie, defeated Joao Maria Pontes & Pedro Cruz Silva 2&1 in the foursomes to put the first point on the board for the Norwegian team. 

Herman Sekne & Jakob Stubhaug added another point for Norway shortly afterwards in the second foursomes match of the morning to make the score 2-0, and leave their team within two points of securing victory.

Sekne won his singles match 5&3, leaving the door open for Jakob Stubhaug to win his third match out of three and secure the deciding point on the 14th green with a 5&4 win.

The other three singles matches finished soon afterwards, with two going to portugal and a fifth win going to Norway to leave the final score at 5-2. 

In the match for third place, Iceland took on Slovakia. The cold and windy conditions seemed to favour the Icelanders, as they claimed both of the morning foursomes matches. Viktor Ingi Einarsson & Dagbjartur Sigurbrandsson scored an 8&6 win in match two, while Ingvar Andri Magnusson & Sverrir Haraldson clinched the second point on the 17th green.

This meant just two points were needed from the five afternoon singles to secure the bronze medals, and the third and final promotion spot to next year's European Boys' Team Championship, Division 1.

Early wins in the afternoon from Ingvar Andri Magnusson (5&4) and Sigurdu Bjarki Blumenstein on the 13th (6&5), meant Iceland had put an unassailable four points on the board and secured themselves the victory. 

Two further wins from the Icelandic team, and one match going to Slovakia meant the final score was 6-1.

The Icelandic team will join Norway and Portugal at Golf de Chantilly in next year's Division 1 championship.
