KINGSBURG’S SIXTH MAN CLINCHES WIN–March 12
On Monday, the FC Eagles had a home match against Kingsburg at Sunnyside Country Club, March 12.

Normally, when a match is over, the best five scores from each team are added up and that is the final score. However, the teams were tied after this so the decision went to the sixth score. In a sort of overtime, the Eagles were defeated, 233 (57)-233 (65).

Although surprised by the strange outcome, coach Jeff Hopper remained pleased with the improvement of the team.

“This was one of those rare matches, maybe once a year, that ends in a tie with the first five players,” Hopper said. “It’s a good reminder to pay attention to all the little things because one shot really can make the difference.”

The Eagles were led by seniors Jeff Roseth, 37, and Tyler Zaentz, 38, with sophomore Jason Kim coming one under 50 at 49. This was Kim’s first time shooting below 50 and Hopper says this was a big step.

“I was pleased with the continuing strong play from Jeff and Tyler today, but most of all with Jason?s ability to reach his goal of breaking 50,” Hopper said. “You have to manage your errors to get to that level. Now he can work on the fine-tuning necessary to keep pushing that score lower a shot at a time.”

Junior McKay Mohun, who was the sixth man, felt that despite the loss on paper, many victories were made.

“I was disappointed that we lost, but I’m confident that our team will bounce back,” Mohun said. “Also, I’m very excited to see how well our team is coming together and improving our skills.”

The Eagles will next play Madera at he Madera Country Club, March 15.
