Two horse race in Boys Teams Matches

Queensland and New South Wales have streaked ahead of the pack to lead the 2007 Australian Boys&apos Interstate Matches at Royal Perth Golf Club. Both sides remain undefeated with just two rounds left to go in the event – including the much antiticpated showdown between the leading teams. Queensland sits atop the table by the barest of margins on point difference, leading by one half over their rivals. The defending champions enjoyed a 4-1 rout over Australian Capital Territory in Round Four. Tarquin McManus started the charge with a 6/5 win over Kris Hellier and was backed up strongly by team mates Kris O&aposSullivan, Eagle Chang and Boyd Watts who all recorded wins. Nicholas Cochrane claimed the sole point for the ACT, beating Mark Song 1up. NSW also had a convincing win over Tasmania, winning 4 1/2 to 1/2. Lincoln Tighe, Tim Hart, Matthew Gleeson and Alex Katholos all had wins while Brendan Smith was held to a square by Leslie Chamberlain. In other results, hosts Western Australia regained their form with a 5-0 trouncing of the Northern Territory and South Australia pipped bitter rivals Victoria 3-2.
