#IntSeries: Tassie lives on a blue day

Posted by on   /   Posted in golf news


New South Wales won the day by TKO, but Tasmania is alive and kicking.

That is the result of the #IntSeries of the men after a blood-curdling third day at Tasmania Golf Club, interrupted by powerhouse displays from the Blues in order to end two undefeated strands in succession.

NSW first stopped Tasmania 6-1 & # 39; in the morning in a game that was tighter than the score suggests, and then backed up and arch-rival Victoria picked up 5-2 for a final berth in to close the afternoon

However, Tasmania was not counted and bounced in the afternoon to halve the game against Western Australia.

This result ended WA & # 39; s mathematical opportunity to reach the final and, more importantly for the hosts, enabled them to control their destiny.

Should Tasmania defeat Victoria in the last provisional game of Friday morning, it has been playing since 1977 for the first Interstate trophy. If the match is halved or Victoria wins, then it is the Grote V that tackles NSW for all marbles later in the afternoon.

Tasmania sat in the boxing seat very late in the afternoon to cover WA when Sandgropers skipper and inspiration Haydn Barron earned his second 1-up win for the day at Greg Longmore on the final hole.

Earlier, Barron had done the same with former Australian Amateur champion Matias Sanchez when the Vics & # 39; beat WA in the morning.

Emerging younger Josh Greer rose to the crescent to halve Tasmania skipper Mitch Van Noord, also to remain unbeaten on Thursday after having previously defeated Blake Collyer from Victoria.

But the Tasmanians had points early on to breathe calmly after the NSW victory, with the victories of Andrew Phillips, Mark Schulze and former professional Craig Hancock enough to keep the home team's dream alive.

In the other afternoon game, South Australia broke through for the first win, beating the Northern Territory 5.5-1.5 to ensure they finished the sixth and seventh respectively.

In better news for the NT, however, No.7 Lachlan Morgan noticed his first Interstate victory, while Malcolm Roney halved his match with Ben Layton. The top match between good prospects Jake Hughes and Jack Thompson ended with a 1-up victory for the South Australian world No.54.
