NSW, WA rise to the top at Junior Interstate
by Dane Heverin
New South Wales held on to the top of the table in the boys, while Western Australia has the ascendancy in the girls following the second day of the Australian Junior Interstate Teams Matches at Mount Osmond in Adelaide.
The West Australian girls were dubbed as the team to beat by many of the captains in the lead up to the tournament and they showed why on Wednesday by accounting for Victoria 3-1 and halving their contest with New South Wales.
Captain Amie Phobubpa led from the front with a 3&1 victory over the previously unbeaten Victorian Amelia Harris and a 4&2 win against Charlotte Perkins of New South Wales.
Western Australia with two wins and a tie now sit half a point clear of the two other undefeated teams Queensland and New South Wales (both win a win and two ties) and they have the chance to sure up the trophy tomorrow in their matchups against South Australia and Queensland as they have a bye on the final day.
The New South Wales boys were dominant on the second day as they took out all eight matches against Tasmania and Western Australia and they now have three wins and a tie for the week.
Captain Joshua Todd has been impressive and his teammates Jye Halls and Will Moody are undefeated so far. Two-time Australian Junior Amateur champion Jeffrey Guan comfortably won his two matches for the day.
Victoria are nipping at their heels with two wins and two ties however, while Queensland have a match in hand at one win and two ties.
The boys in maroon produced a clean sweep against the ACT in their only match of the day and the Victorians could not be separated from Western Australia before defeating Tasmania 3-1.
