Scottish schoolboys champion Connor Syme from Dumfries was the hero as Scotland fought back to earn a 4 1/2-4 1/2 draw with France on Day 2 of the boys' international quadrangular golf tournament at Golf International de Pont Royal, Provence in southern France.The Scots took the foursomes 2-1 but the French turned the tables in the afternoon singles and were leading 4 1/2-3 1/2 with the Connor Syme v Alexandre Daydou match to finish.The match was all square after 15 holes and in a tense finish, Syme won two of the last three holes and halved the other for a two-hole win that levelled the scores overall.Other singles winner for Scotland was Calum Hill (Tulliallan). He scored a 6 and 4 victory.Blairgowrie's Bradley Neil halved the top singles tie.Italy, conquerors of Scotland on the opening day, beat Sweden 6 1/2-2 1/2 and will meet France in the title-decider.
