LEEDS'S Kiran Matharu added a three-under-par 69 to her opening 68 to lie tied 10th in the Ladies European Tour’s Lalla Aicha Tour School Final Qualifier in Marrakech.

Matharu birdied three consecutive holes on her outward nine at Amelkis as she had at Samanah the previous day.

However, her birdies at holes four to six were followed by three consecutive bogeys, which meant she stood level par for the day at the turn.

Undeterred, she picked up three more birdies on the way in - at holes 13, 14 and 18 - to return to seven under for the event.

Germany’s Karolin Lampert carded a career-low seven-under-par 65 at Amelkis and at 12 under par overall took a two-stroke lead over Denmark’s Daisy Nielsen, who had a 66, also at Amelkis, and France's Justine Dreher, who had a 66 on the Samanah Course.

There are two fields playing on the Amelkis and Samanah courses alternately for the first four rounds, followed by a cut to the leading 60 players and those tied before the fifth and final round to be played at Samanah on Tuesday, all chasing a place on the Ladies European Tour in 2016.

The top 30 and ties will earn their cards for next year.
