Detroit Gold Cup Heat 2A results - Shane wins; David, Liddycoat penalized

|

Heat 2A Results:
  1. U-5 Jimmy Shane
  2. U-9 Jon Zimmerman
  3. U-6 Steve David
    ONE LAP PENALTY - TOO EARLY TO SCORE UP BUOY
  4. U-88 Scott Liddycoat
    ONE LAP PENALTY - LANE VIOLATION
Steve David grabbed lane one, but it was Scott Liddycoat leading the field across the start line.  At the Belle Island turn, Liddycoat had the lead with David right alongside.  David put the hammer down and took the lead on the backstretch of lap one.

Jimmy Shane hooked his boat and appeared to hit a buoy, but he managed to get back on track quickly without dislodging it.

Meanwhile, David lengthened out his lead over Liddycoat in lap two and subsequent laps... BUT WAIT!  Turns out David was too early to the score up buoy and Liddycoat had a lane violation.  Both were assessed one lap penalties.  So, despite finishing first and second, the U-6 and U-88 finish 3rd and 4th with Jimmy Shane taking the win.

We're also hearing of fines, but nothing official.
