The Southland women's golf team will be chasing its first win of this week's national interprovincial, when it faces Aorangi this afternoon.
The southerners had two tough losses yesterday, going down to defending champions Auckland in the morning, then Waikato in the afternoon.
It was always going to be a tough day for the southerners, facing a classy Auckland side that seemed to do no wrong as it powered its way to a 5-0 victory.
In the afternoon Southland went down 4-1 to Waikato with Olivia Frost securing Southland's only win of the day.
Team manager Robyn Boniface said the team played good golf in the early stages of the afternoon's round, but let Waikato back into it late in the piece.
"Waikato probably played their best round to far against us," she said.
"The were looking pretty good the first 12 holes, but just let them in in the last bit and you can't give them that opportunity.
"We'll be looking for a good win against Aorangi."
Conditions at the Muriwai Golf Course were good, Boniface said.
Southland has the bye this morning, before playing Aorangi this afternoon.
