Regina’s Hallie Crozier continued her solid play in Nipawin at the NextGen Prairie Championship and will enter the final round one shot off the lead.

The Royal Regina Golf Club member fired her second straight 77 at Evergreen Golf Course Saturday leaving her at 10-over par, 144 gong into Sunday’s championship round.

Crozier is behind Manitoba’s Addison Kartusch who has led the event since Friday’s first round.

Manitoba’s Cala Korman will join the pair in the final group Sunday that will tee off at 11 a.m.

On the boy’s side there is still a two-way for the lead at 1-under par, just like after Friday’s round one, but two new players sit atop the leaderboard after moving day.

Spruce Grove’s Seth Mottershead-Yee and Kye Fisher of Leduc will enter the final round with scores of 143. Fisher had the low round of the day stroking a 68 after 75 in round one. Mottershead-Yee has rounds of 73 and 70 on his card.

Cayden Kwan of Unionville, Ont. will play in the final group with the Alberta golfers.

The top Saskatchewan player remains to be Saskatoon’s Carter Bell. The Riverside Country Club player was tied for the lead after day one, but a second round 76 dropped him to a tie for fifth at 3-over par, 147.

Myles Johnson and Luke Cote are the other two Saskatchewan players inside the top-10 going into Sunday’s final round.

The final group will tee off at 10:10 a.m.
