The first day of the SA Inter-provincial tournament presented a fine, sunny and calm day. The side took full advantages of the conditions and managed 3 games to 1 victory in the morning foursomes against Western Province.
The wind picked up as did the mood of the Western Province side and a very hard fought battle saw our team losing to Western Province 4 ½ games to 3½. This resulted in an overall victory of 6 ½ to 5 ½. All credit to the Western Province team that proved that they are a force to be reckoned with. A game played in Great Spirit and sportsmanship that could have ended as either side victorious.
Tomorrow we face Gauteng North and old rival that have proved to be a very strong team in the past, we look forward to the match and the challenge.
The result of today’s games is as follows:
Schaper/Van Tonder - 2&3 - James/Colditz
Rall/Du Preez - 4&3 - Trocado/O’Reilly
Boshoff/Mostert - 4&3 - Roux/Van Der Merwe
