Sage took away Stephanie to go in the quarter finals by scoring a total of 14.27 against 13.54 for Stephanie Gilmore. After winning 3 times the #ROXYpro, Stephanie has struggled to find his rhythm in the competition because of his injury that prevented hier from participating in CT since April.

Conlogue would be eliminated later in the day by an in-form Tyler Wright. With Conlogue’s elimination, Moore will overtake the frontrunner position on the Jeep Leaderboard with a Semifinals berth in France.
