Matadors Finish 12th at SCVB Pacific Invitational

STOCKTON, Calif. - Cal State Northridge finished with a final round 284, a season-low, but could not move up from 12th-place at the conclusion of the Stockton Visitors & Convention Bureau Pacific Invitational Wednesday at Brookside C.C.

The Matadors finish with a three-round score of two under-par 862 (293-286-283) which is also a season-low for CSUN. Unfortunately for the Matadors every team in the 12-team field blistered the par-72 course with Kansas State (817) pulling out a one-shot win over the host Pacific Tigers (818) in the team race. In the individual competition, Devon Purser of Brigham Young claimed a one-shot win with a 19 under-par score of 197.

Leading the Matadors was junior Kyler Sauer who finished tied for 26th at eight under 208. Sauer finished with rounds of 68-70-70 which is the low three-round score of the season for a CSUN golfer. 

Senior Matt Siporin was next as he finished tied for 36th at four under 212 following rounds of 73-69-70. Siporin's second round 69 is a season-low.

The three remaining Matadors had a tough time moving up the leaderboard as Oscar Sachs and Shane Blanchard finished tied for 56th at six over 222 and Ryan Green placed 60th at (+17) 233. Sachs posted rounds of 78-72-72 while Blanchard finished with scores of 74-75-73. After a tough two rounds (78-84), Green finished with a final round of one under 71.
