Ceres only sent three golfers to Manteca Park Golf Course, but the Lancers didn’t take the day off.

East Union shot 211, it’s average for the last three matches, and Kyle Harman remained under 40 strokes for the third straight outing, turning in a 3-over-par 39.

Tanner Bragg was hot on Harman’s tail, finishing with a 40.

Ryan Plum carded a 43, Jordan Duvall a 44, Guillermo Barajas a 45, and Evan Lewis had the throw-out, a 48.

“Team-wise, I couldn’t be happier with one through six,” EU head coach Dennis Wells said. “They have all progressed over the course of the last two months.”

The match was East Union’s final regular season Valley Oak League tilt.

Wells says the race to the league Most Valuable Player honors will be determined at Lockeford Springs Country Club Monday, the site of this season’s VOL tournament.

“It will come down to Kyle, Austin (Whitworth of Oakdale) and a couple of the Sierra guys,” he said.
