In the morning foursomes Surrey Schools eased into a 1 point lead with strong performances from captain Ben Partridge (St. Andrews) and Harry Crockett (Oxted) who won their match 3&2. They were very well supported by Sarah Mardani (Gordons) and Olivia Hunt (Reigate College) who played outstanding golf to win their match 9&7. Luke Barnes (Farnham College) and Rhys Williams (Jubilee High) fought hard to achieve a half on the 18th.
With all to play for in the afternoon singles, Surrey got off to a great start with well earned victories from Sarah Mardani 6&5; Olivia Hunt 3&2; Harry Crockett 3&2; Ben Partridge 4&2.
Luke Barnes and Harry Yule (Salesian) found themselves up against some inspired Middlesex golfers and although they played well ended up losing their matches. However in the final game, although the overall match had been won, Edward Dimayuga (Sutton Grammar) battled hard to a 3&2 victory.
