ANDERSON KNOCKED OUT IN QUARTER FINALS

Disappointment for Merewether’s Philippa Anderson, knocked out in the quarter finals of the 3000 point Qualifying Series event in Japan by fellow Aussie, Isabella Nichols.

Anderson started well, registering a three and a five, but that’s where her momentum stopped, while Nichols scored a six and a seven to easily claim the win.

The result won’t count as one of Anderson’s top five this year.

Currently sitting in 11th on the QS rankings, she’ll need a huge effort at the season-ending Port Stephens Pro next month in order to advance to the championship tour in 2019.
