Quarterfinals Set at the Mid-Am Match Play Championship
BRYANâ€”Two major upsets highlighted Fridayâ€™s Round of 16 at the State Mid-Amateur Championship. Thirteenth-seeded Mike Peck knocked off fourth-seeded Chris Casey, 3 and 1, at Traditions Club. Stroke play medalist and No. 1 seed Colby Harwell fell in 23 holes to No. 16 seeded Kris Devlin.
Devlin, from Weatherford, and Irvingâ€™s Peck moved on to Saturday morningâ€™s Quarterfinal Round. Devlin faces 2013 South Amateur Champion Tony Soerries from Montgomery. Soerries got by San Angeloâ€™s Beau Davis, 1 up, in the Round of 32.
Peck will play 2011 North Player of the Year Aaron Hickman, who beat Ron Kilby from McAllen in the round of 16. “It will be a tough one for me tomorrow,” Peck said.
No. 2 seed Nathaniel James played at the top of his game and defeated Luke Loggins, 8 and 7. Jess Bonneau of Houston won 3 and 2 against Sean Skellenger. James and Bonneau will play against each another in the Quarterfinals.
After a morning Round of 32 matches, the day ended when Lubbockâ€™s Michael Pruitt holed out a 25-foot bunker shot on the 18th hole to beat Houstonâ€™s Bob Kearny, 1 up, in the Round of 16. Pruitt advanced to the Quarterfinals, where heâ€™ll face Randy Lance from The Woodlands.
“Well, thatâ€™s one way to do it,â€ Pruitt exclaimed as he walked into the scoring tent.
Play continues at 7:30 a.m. Saturday at the lush and challenging Traditions Club. For complete scoring, including Friday morningâ€™s Round of 32 matches, please click here.
