Argentina passed has taken the second-round lead at the 2014 World Amateur Team Championship in Karuizawa, Japan.
The Argentines, who began the day in fourth position, posted a nine-under 133 at the Oshitate Course to hold a one-stroke lead over Sweden, Switzerland and the USA at 18-under-par 268.
Canada, which shared the lead with Sweden and Switzerland after the first round, held the lead at 19-under par through 15 holes, but lost four strokes in the last three holes to hold fifth place at 270.
“Both days, we gave a few shots back on the way in. It’s something we will talk about (Thursday night),” said Canadian captain Graham Hill.
“There are lots of low scores and it’s a bunched-up leaderboard. While it’s not exactly what we wanted, six under is still a good score and we are still right there,” he added.
Play was suspended at 12:08 p.m., local time for dangerous weather and resumed at 1 p.m.
Taylor Pendrith of Richmond Hill, Ont., shot a 67 for Canada, while Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont., and Adam Svensson of Surrey, B.C., each had a score of 69.
