Pontefract Ladies Challenger 2: Kennedy Takes Second Win In Five Days

Georgina Kennedy has secured her second victory in just five days, with a win at the Pontefract Ladies 3k Challenger 2 following her success at the Sumner Malik Memorial on Wednesday evening.

The Challenger 3 level tournament was held with only those currently residing in the United Kingdom being allowed to enter, due to the ongoing COVD-19 pandemic.

Kennedy, who was fresh off the back of her first victory on Tour at the Sumner Malik Memorial on Wednesday, began her campaign in Pontefract on Friday with a comfortable win over Finland’s Emilia Korhonen.

She then downed top seed, and World No.28, Emily Whitlock in the quarter-finals, before getting the better of No.3 seed Alicia Mead in the last four, winning her semi-final contest in just 18 minutes.

Kennedy, who was only featuring on Tour for the second time since 2016 due to a stint at university in the United States, completed her clean sweep of straight-game wins in the tournament, beating No.2 seed Anna Kimberley to win the title.
