Nanaimo's Shirin Anjarwalla shone when almost everyone else struggled during Day 2 of the B.C. Golf Juvenile Girls' Championships at the Crown Isle Golf Course in Courtenay.
Anjarwalla, 13, was the only player to break par, shooting a 1-under 71, to vault from third to first, sitting at 3-over-147, heading into today's final round. Sumi Francois, from Burnaby, led after the first round after opening with a 3-under-69, but she fell to second place with a 7-over-79 on Wednesday. She now sits one shot behind Anjarwalla.
Naomi Ko, of Victoria, moved from fifth to third after shooting a 1-over-73 on Wednesday and is three shots off the pace. Maple Ridge's Keanna Mason moved from sixth to fourth, shooting an identical 73, and is at 7-over-151 for the tournament.
On her home course, Abigail Rigsby started the day one shot ahead of Anjarwalla, but shot a 6-over-78 to fall all the way to fifth.
Anjarwalla opened the day with a birdie, but bogeyed the next three holes. She composed herself and finished the front 9 with another birdie. She then shot 2-under on the back 9, with the only blemish a bogey on the Par 5 15.
