Matadors Card Second Round 301 But Slip to 14th at Bandon Dunes Championship

BANDON, Ore. - Cal State Northridge men's golf posted a two-shot improvement over Friday's opening round but that couldn't prevent the Matadors from slipping from 11th to 14th heading into Sunday's final round.

After carding a round of 303 on Friday, CSUN finished at 301 on Saturday but dropped after being overtaken by a trio of teams. The Matadors (604) head into Sunday's final round needing to catch four teams to reach the top-10. Colorado (577) has a six-shot lead over San Jose State (583) in the 18-school team chase.

Ryan Green moved into the individual top-20 after carding a one-over par 73. Green, who is just two strokes out of the top-10, opened with a two-over 74 on Friday and currently sits 19th at three-over 147.

Oscar Sachs dropped only one stroke from Friday to Saturday but it was enough to drop him from 23rd to 33rd after two rounds. Sachs carded a two-over 74 on Friday and a three-over 75 on Saturday and sits at five-over 149.

Kyler Sauer (78-76) remained in the exact position he began the day, tied for 66th following a second-round four-over 76. Steven Molumby posted a four-stroke improvement from round one to two as he overcame a first-round 81 to post a five-over 77 in round two. Molumby is tied for 84th at (+14) 158. Matt Siporin had CSUN's high score of the day as he finished at (+11) 83 after posting a five-over 77 on Friday. He is currently 92nd at (+16) 160.

Players tee-off the final 18 holes on Sunday morning.
