North, Roseburg tied with 18 holes left
ROSEBURG ' Nothing was decided between North Medford and Roseburg after the first day of the Southern Oregon Conference boys district tournament on Monday.
Roseburg shot a low team round of 307 to move into a first-place tie with the Black Tornado in the overall SOC standings.
Today's final round at Roseburg Country Club is the last of seven counting rounds that determines the conference champion.
The SOC champion receives the top seed to the Class 4A state tournament, while the winner of the two-day district gets the conference's second bid. If the same school wins both, the No. 2 team at district goes to state. The top five individuals also get a spot at the state championships next Monday and Tuesday at Trysting Tree in Corvallis.
North Medford senior Adam Browne and Jay Kirkwood of Grants Pass tied for the best score of the day with a 1-over par 73s.
The Black Tornado, which led the Indians by four strokes in the SOC standings going into district, posted a 311, while South Medford (323) stands in third, two shots ahead of Klamath Union.
— I'm a little disappointed, North Medford coach Kevin Klabunde said. We had an opportunity to put it (the SOC championship) away today. We didn't step up and do what we needed to do. We threw away some shots and didn't play up to our potential.
Browne shot a 38 on the front and 35 after the turn. He was even par going into the 18th but bogeyed the par-5 final hole.
North junior Mike Barry had a disappointing round of 78.
It was really a surprise because (Barry) has been averaging under 72 all year, Klabunde said. He shot par on the front side, but lost it on the back side.
Barry opened the back nine bogey-bogey, hitting the ball in the water on the 10th hole.
He got off to a poor start and was never able to recover, said Klabunde.
Roseburg used a balanced round with all four golfers coming in under 80.
I look for us to bounce back (today), said Klabunde. Our kids are optimistic they will play much better.
Klamath Union's Kameron Gordon recorded a double-eagle on the par-5 10th. Gordon hit his second shot 210 yards into the cup on the 510-yard hole.
The SOC standings with one round remaining are: North Medford 1,837, Roseburg 1,837, South Medford 1,921, Klamath Union 1,922, Grants Pass 1,988, Ashland 2,079, Eagle Point incomplete.
