Essley Green started out his career-best outing with a chip for eagle on the par-five first hole of Manteca Park Golf Course on Wednesday.

He would finish with a personal best 2-over 39 on the front nine, and Sierra cruised to a 218-322 victory over Lathrop.

It was collectively a rock-solid effort for the Timberwolves. Blake Settlemoir added a 41, Chris Schmitz carded a 44, Matt Rose a 46 and Alex Orr rounded out scoring with a 48. All six of Sierra’s players finished with sub-50 scores, as Chuck Good checked in with a throw-out 49 that topped all Lathrop scores.

Sam Fallon paced the Spartans with a 59.
