Eastern Province pushed to the front in the promotion battle in the 57th SA Inter-Provincial, sponsored by Tempest, at Bryanston Country Club on Wednesday.

Eastern Cape led Limpopo 3 – 1, but North West had the advantage in the foursomes until Andile Adam and Fezekile Kana won the last hole to level the score.

Captain Dillon Germshuys led the side into the singles.

He defeated North West skipper Douglas Mc Cabe 5 & 4 and rookie Sean Lottering, Kyle de Beer and Alan Lones piled on the points. SA Country Districts veteran Rhalf Manuel guaranteed the 6.5 – 5.5 win when he halved with Christo Peens.

Manuel, Adam and Kana racked up three points against Limpopo and Germshuys, Lones, Kyle de Beer and Altin van der Merwe halved their games for a 9 – 3 result.

Eastern Province tops the B-Section log with eight points, but North West beat Limpopo 8 – 4 to move to second. They have six points, and so has Free State, after beating Boland 7.5 – 4.5.

“We’ve given ourselves a chance, so will enjoy a well-deserved break,” said Du Preez. “Free State play Border and Limpopo on Thursday and North West tackle Mpumalanga. We can’t control what will happen in those matches, but we will be back guns blazing for our final match against Boland.”

Eastern Province 6.5 vs North West 5.5
Eastern Province 9.0 vs Limpopo 3.0
