Australia's Chelsea Hedges topped Blanchard in the second round, posting a two-wave score of 11.83 to 7.67 for Blanchard.

Hedges then went on to win her third-round heat, with Moore finishing second. Ho also finished second in her third-rounder. She'll face Jacqueline Silva of Brazil in the fourth round. Moore will surf against California's Courtney Conlogue.
