Kraus, Pelisek gain Metro final

June 11, 1993|By John W. Stewart | John W. Stewart,Staff Writer

Andrea Kraus and Sandy Pelisek set up a rematch of their 1983 final when they rolled into the final of the women's Metropolitan championship at Eagle's Nest yesterday.

Kraus lost the first hole, then played the next 12 two under par in beating Cindy Peterka, 7 and 5, and Pelisek was never behind in thwarting Marty King, 4 and 3.

The tournament will be concluded today with finals in all flights over the West Course at Baltimore Country Club.

Kraus has won this event four times, including 1983 when the then Andrea Francus defeated the then Sandy Persinger.

Against Peterka, a three-time titlist, Kraus had to take an unplayable on the first hole, then put together 10 pars and two birdies in piling up her margin.

Pelisek played well enough to win against an opponent who did not putt as well as she had in earlier rounds. Three down after nine holes, King cut the margin to two when she won the 13th after Pelisek found water, then gave it back with a three-putt at the 14th.

Pelisek closed it out on the par-5 15th with a two-putt par from 50 feet, the second from six feet.
