The Southland women's golf team will play for ninth place at the national interprovincial in Muriwai today, after halving its match with North Harbour yesterday.
The Southland team put in a solid performance to halve its match with semifinalists North Harbour yesterday, with Angela Gerken and Olivia Frost both playing well to secure wins (4/3 and 5/4 respectively), leaving the game in the hands of their No 1 player Robyn Pullar, who managed to halve her game.
Team manager Robyn Boniface said the half was a deserved result for both teams.
"It was a really good learning curve for our girls to show that they can compete with the bigger associations and that they just need to keep that belief in themselves and go forward from there," she said.
Southland could have easily been playing for seventh today, had Canterbury beaten Northland, but Boniface said the team would be putting its all into securing ninth.
Auckland have been a class act all week and will play Hawke's Bay in one semifinal this morning, and Bay of Plenty will play North Harbour.
