JP Cooper and Kyle Barker from Central Gauteng will face off in the first semi-final in the Nomads SA Boys U-19 Match Play Championship, while fellow Gauteng North junior Rosswell Sinclair will go head-to-head with Luca Fillippi from Western Province in the other semi-final at Polokwane Golf Club on Friday.

Cooper pulled clear of Slade Pickering from North West with a hat-trick of birdies from the 12th in the quarter-final and sealed a 3 & 2 victory with another gain at the 17th.

Barker defeated Matt Saulez from KwaZulu-Natal 2 & 1, while Filippi birdied the 18th to dispatch Estiaan Conradie from Gauteng North 2 & 1.

Sinclair, who knocked out the country’s current number one ranked amateur Tristen Strydom 5 & 4 in the first round and downed Sentanio Minnie from Ekurhuleni 3 & 2 in the second round, extended his stay in the premier junior championship with a 2 & 1 victory against Sanlam SA Amateur finalist Jovan Rebula.
