Gavin Moynihan has advanced to the last 32 of the Belgian Knockout but Michael Hoey missed out.

Moynihan followed up his opening 70 with a 69 for a total of three-under-par that left him 17th in his section. The Dubliner hit five birdies and three bogeys.

Antrim man Hoey paid the price for two double-bogeys in his 74 as he missed out on a play-off by four shots (+3) .

Chris Paisley secured top seeding at after producing back-to-back 65s on Thursday and Friday.

The 33-year-old carded seven birdies and a solitary bogey on day two to finish the traditional stroke play phase of the tournament on 12 under par.

Paisley leads the 64 players - 32 from each side of the draw - who progress to the weekend's knockout stages.

He told Sky Sports: "It's great to play well again. To follow up a low round with another one is great.

"You try to win every week and this week is a bit of a different one, slightly annoying that those two rounds are going to be basically wiped clean.

"I'm playing well, I enjoy match play, I enjoy the course so I've got a chance."

Early starter Anton Karlsson was a single shot behind Paisley on 11 under, with Justin Walters and Espen Kofstad in a tie for third two strokes further back.
