Nocera two clear ahead of final day

Gwladys Nocera on Saturday carded a scintillating 65 to claim the lead of the Lalla Meryem Cup in Morocco.

The French contender started with two birdies and a bogey on the front nine before producing a stunning back-nine of 30 that featured no less than five birdies.

The 12-time Ladies European Tour winner is two shots clear of the field at 11-under with compatriot Sophie Giquel-Bettan occupying second place.

Halfway leader Ariya Jutanugarn is another two shots off the pace at seven-under while Thai compatriot Titiya Plucksataporn stormed through the field with a 65 to lie joint fourth on six under.

English’s Holly Clyburn and Charley Hull are level with Pluckstataporn.

Clyburn carded a 67 blemished only by a bogey on the 18th.
