Southland makes Wellington work for win
Southland have gone down fighting against Wellington at the interprovincial women's golf tournament in Dunedin today.
The fancied Wellington outfit was made to work hard for a 3-2 victory in the final match of divisional play, with Southland No 1 Robyn Pullar beating her capital counterpart Julianne Alvarez 2/1 and Olivia Frost downing Barbara Parreno.
Unfortunately, Southland was unable to pull off what would have been their third win at St Clair this week with Angela Gerken losing 3/2 to Te Rongopai Clay, Kerry Mariu going down 4/3 to Lucy Davis and Bronwyn O'Brien losing 4/3 to Alanah Braybrook.
In other results, Laura Hoskin, daughter of Southland and Otago cricketer Richard Hoskin, has led Otago to an upset win over Canterbury.
Hoskin's 4/3 victory over Canterbury's Sylvie Williams helped Otago to a 3-2 win.
Southland will now take on a team from the other division tomorrow to decide its final placing in the tournament.
