by Dane Heverin
A thrilling finish is on the cards at the Australian Junior Interstates Teams Matches at Mount Osmond in Adelaide after New South Wales held onto their position at the top of the table with another victory on day three.
The New South Wales team's only assignment for the day was a matchup with the Australian Capital Territory in the afternoon where they took the win in all eight matches.
Jye Halls, Will Moody and Ella Scaysbrook are still unbeaten for the week, and they will be eager to keep that record intact in Thursday morning's contest against Victoria.
The Big V have the chance to draw level with their rivals from north of the Murray River if they can get the victory and they will confident they can do so after also clean sweeping the ACT in their only match today.
Western Australia are in second place just half a point behind NSW and they will be handed a victory tomorrow morning due to Covid-19 protocols forcing Tasmania to withdraw from the competition - Queensland and South Australia were both awarded wins for their scheduled matches against Tasmania today.
After getting the better of South Australia 6-2 this morning, WA had to win their matchup with Queensland to keep their title hopes alive and they prevailed 4.5-3.5 in a nail-biter.
Captain Amie Phobubpa, Celine Chen, Jorja Hinson-Tolchard and Riley Gott all won their matches, but it was Ollie Marsh's efforts to halve his showdown with Tai Egea that secured the overall victory.
