The Victorian girls have flexed their muscles today, all but ensuring the victory in the Junior Interstate Series in Toowoomba.

In a crucial morning game against title rival Western Australia, the Vics were always in trouble in the No.2 game, eventually won by the impressive Abbie Teasdale, 6 & 5 over Piper Stubbs.

But the defending champion was in trouble in the lower order games and when Sheradyn Johnson won the best of 2018 in the Australian Girls & champion Maddison Hinson-Tolchard to win 2-up, the Vics saluted 4-1.

At the same time, Queensland suffered a terminal blow later, halving with a brave South Australian outfit, which earned its first point when SA & amp; Amelia Whinney Lion-Higo collapsed minutes after Caitlin Peirce and Stanthorpe & # 39; s Hannah Reeves fighting a tense halved match.

After a flat day, New South Wales fought hard for an early 3-2 win against the Composite team, but arrived late in the afternoon against South Australia to win 5-0, the same margin that Victoria enjoyed against the Composite team.

Everything that Queensland and Western Australia left behind to engage in a major afternoon clash that went through everything.

But in the battle for the big guns, Hinson-Tolchard stood up when it counted and the Northern Territory Amateur Champion, Cassie Porter, spanned mathematically to keep WA's title defense alive.

Victoria plays Queensland on Wednesday-morning and only needs to win one of his five games to guarantee the title, and even then WA NSW would have to launder for the Vics to not prevail overall.

At Sanctuary Cove, NSW took command of the boys' championship with its fourth consecutive win to set up what is likely to be a make-or-break match on Wednesday morning against arch-rival Victoria.

After beating the ACT in the morning, NSW gathered in four of the five games one after the other to come back over the final nine and defeated WA 3-2 in the afternoon

Peter Ipkendanz, proud but relieved NSW team manager, said it was "just determination the boys got through".

"After the 13th hole, we were still in four of the five games," said Ipkendanz.

"However, they are the kind of guys that just don't give up and they just fought it."

The winners for New South Wales were Harrison Crowe, Lachlan Jones and Jeffrey Guan, the last two conquering two holes after the first nine.

After being extensively defeated by South Australia in the morning, Victoria recovered and defeated the defending champion Queensland 3-2 in a throbbing afternoon clash.

With games tied to two each, the game all came down to the number 3 match between Victorian Nathan Page and Tyler Duncan of Queensland.

After Duncan waved a pair of one-meter blade to the pair's 17th hole, Page held a one-hole advantage in the fourth parachute – their last hole. Duncan found the green in two to earn an eagle's well of 9 meters, while the long-stroke page just passed the green with an 8-iron.

First to play, Duncan ran his eagle chance right past the hole. With an uphill lie and the wind in his face, Page flung indifferently up to 2 m past the flag, but showed nerves of steel to make the birdie putt to keep Victoria & # 39; s title hope alive.

South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland all remain alive, with two and a half games each winning, but will be keenly awaiting the outcome of the New South Wales and Victoria game.

A Victorian victory would bring them all back to the title box, depending on their respective results.
