A pair of Trail juniors topped the West Kootenay Junior Golf Circuit stop at Granite Pointe last Saturday.

Birchbank Golf Club’s Brenan Moroney and Tyler McKay both shot three-over 75s in the tournament to come out tied for the top. Moroney then took home the title when he beat McKay in a playoff hole.

Nelson’s Carson Arcuri was the top local golfer, finishing fourth in the 14-player field. Granite Pointe’s Hanno Southam was right behind finishing fifth.

Two other Granite Pointe juniors — Ben Kelsch and Kyle Hall — played in their first junior circuit event of the season on Saturday.

In the Sunday event at Christina Lake, McKay bounced back from his playoff loss to capture that stop on the tour.
