GN hunting comeback at SA U-19 IPT

KRUGERSDORP, 18 December 2014 – Gauteng North and Limpopo are still winless after three days of competition at the 2014 South African Under-19 Inter-Provincial, however, Gauteng North does have a slight advantage in games points with 11.5 – 6.

The team desperate wants to win at least once, though, but after going down 1 – 3 against Western Province, the side will have to pull out all the stops to gain the upperhand against the current log leaders.

Noel Anderson and Alistair Snowdon defeated Ofenste Nukeri and Nicholaus Frade 3 & 2 to take the first scalp, while Hayden Garcia combined with Cole Cruickshank to down Clifford Thompson and JP Cooper by the same margin.

Estiaan Conradie and Stefan Wears-Taylor combined to tie their game against Michael Sherriff and Luca Filippi, while Albert Venter and Rosswell Sinclair also forced their game against opposite numbers, Luke Trocado and Altin van der Merwe, to a stale mate.

“The mood in the camp was a lot brighter, though, after Estiaan, Stefan, Albert and Rosswell squared their games to gain one point for us,” said manager Andre Louw.

“The other two games were a lot tighter than the scores reflect, and we take a lot of confidence out of the points we scored against Province.

“We need to boost our games points count, in the very least, so the guys will go out fighting in the Singles.”


Meanwhile Southern Cape notched a clean sweep against Limpopo in the fourth round A-Division Foursomes at the 2014 South African U-19 Inter-Provincial, while Central Gauteng and Ekurhuleni drew 2-all and Western Province drummed Gauteng North 3 -1 at Krugersdorp Golf Club on Thursday.
