The Canterbury team bounced back from a poor start to record its first win of the interprovincial teams golf championships.
Canterbury are still on track to make the semifinals despite a one-win, one-half, one-loss record.
After a come-from-behind half with Tasman on Tuesday, Canterbury were outplayed in yesterday's morning round by hosts Otago.
Canterbury shot low but were still beaten 3-2.
No 3 Harry Bateman finished his round four under par, but won on only the 18th. Canterbury No 1 Jordan Bakermans was even par, but got well beaten 3 and 2.
No 4 Nic Kay had even more reason to be upset, he was two under the card when his match ended at the 16th, also losing 3 and 2.
Captain Tom Turner was well beaten at No 5, going down 5 and 3.
Owen Burgess, the team's No 2, had his second win - 2up - and kept his unbeaten run with a win in yesterday's afternoon round. His win helped the side to a much needed 3 - 1 win over Poverty Bay.
Bakermans won 3 and 2, Burgess and Bateman both had crushing victories, while Kay was beaten at the last.
