    Canada set up a virtual final in the Under 19 Tri-series by defeating Australia 8-3 at the North Harbour Badminton Centre. The Canadians now take on New Zealand on Friday night with the Kiwis slight favourites after beating Australia 9-2 on Monday.



    One of the stars for Canada was number one Alex Pang who is touted for a big future. Pang beat Jeff Tho in straight games 15-6 15-1 and is sure to be a big challenge for Kiwi number one, Chance Cheng of North Harbour.

    Australia's wins came in the two and three men's singles thanks to Raymond Tam and Chad Whitehead and in the number three women's singles where 14-year-old Erica Pong beat Audrey Bonneville in straight games.

    Cool!!! I coached Audrey Bonneville 4 years in juniors! Such a competitive player. But, she puts sometimes too much pressure on her shoulders, not enjoying enough the game. It is sad that she lost her WS. But yay for her XD!

    NZ won 5-4. I was told it was a great match where the last game was the decider. Chance lost to Alex in straight games.

    Go NZ .............................

    Chance was trashed, 1st set under 10 and 2nd under 5. Alex looks impresive. BTW the final result was 6-5 to NZ and not 5-4 mentioned earlier.
