North West lost the title bid to Ekurhuleni last year, but Stefano Marchetti and Ockert Britz ensured that the 2016 runners-up are in an attacking position in this year’s Nomads SA Under-13 Championship.

The pair threw down the gauntlet with sub-par rounds and team mates Rorisang Nkosi, Dandre de Villiers and Leonard Bevan did the rest to push North West to the top of the pile at Port Elizabeth Golf Club on Tuesday.

Marchetti racked up five birdies on his way to a three-under-par 69 while Britz birdied one, six and 18 for 71. Nkosi contributed 77, Villiers returned a 78 and Leonard Bevan added an 80 for an opening total of 15 under 375 and a one shot lead over Central Gauteng.

Marchetti’s effort was never challenged and he leads the Individual Competition by two shots from Britz and Central Gauteng’s Hannes Strooh.

Strooh and Amilkar Bhana, who opened with a 72, led the chase for Central Gauteng.

The duo was well supported by two rounds of 77 from Joshua Hirsch and Jaden Deltel and a 79 from Stephanie Barbaglia.

Gauteng North and Western Province sit in joint third on 384 and the defending champions have their work cut out if hope to capture a fourth successive victory. Ekurhuleni is fifth on 398.

Bhana – who won last year’s Individual Competition by eight shots – sits in fourth place, while Tiaan Hugo from Southern Cape and Ekurhuleni’s Kiera Floyd carded 73s to finish a further shot back.

Reinhardt Uys, Rialdo de Bruyn and Dujuan Snyman all tied for seventh on 74.

Jordan Wessels was the top performer for Eastern Province. The Wedgewood junior carded a 76 to grab a share of 12th.
