East Union recovered well from its first Valley Oak League defeat of the season, outpointing Kimball 205-249 behind Will Brink’s 1-under 36 on the front nine of the Manteca Park Golf Course Tuesday.
The Lancers (4-1) were coming off a narrow three-stroke loss to Sonora up in Mountain Springs Golf & Country Club, but they were in dominant form against Kimball.
Jordan Lund followed Brink’s low-medalist effort with a 41, Zach Couch and Eric Lewis each turned in a 42, and Kyle Davis rounded out the team score with a 44.
Kimball’s top performer, Jack Gustafson with a 45, matched East Union’s throw-out score for the round.
“I really liked what I saw from the guys out there today,” East Union coach Dennis Wells said. “Everybody had three-putts, so our score could have been in the 190s.”
Sonora 197, Sierra 241
At Mountain Springs, Sonora’s lowest score was a stroke better than Matt Rose’s Sierra-leading 44. Billy Kiriluk paced Sonora with an even 36.
Also scoring for Sierra (3-2, 5-2 overall) were Essley Green (45), Blake Settlemoir (46), Joey Guinta (52) and Alex Orr (54).
