DORSET — Julia Dapron finished in second place at the Vermont Women's Amateur Golf Championship on Wednesday. The Dorset native was playing on her home course, the Dorset Field Club.

Dapron was one of 64 members to take part in the tournament, and after two rounds, was tied with Andrea Brown of Lakeside Golf Club at a combined score of 14 over-par. Dapron shot a 79 in both rounds, while Brown shot a 78 in round one and 80 in round two.

The tournament began on Monday, and play was cancelled on Tuesday due to the weather conditions. That forced the typical three-round tournament down to two rounds total.

The tie forced a three-hole playoff. The two golfers were still even after that. It would take another two holes before the winner was decided. Brown beat Dapron on the fifth playoff hole, clinching her victory.
