Auburn finishes third in Capital City Club match play

April 19, 2014

No. 26 Auburn golf rebounded from a semifinal loss to No. 5 Georgia Tech to defeat No. 19 Florida State in the consolation round of the inaugural Capital City Club Match Play Championship on Saturday at the Capital City Club Crabapple Course in Milton, Ga.

"It was a great experience today at the Capital City Club Match Play tournament," Auburn head coach Nick Clinard said. "We lost a very close match against Georgia Tech in the morning. We then had a quick turnaround and beat a very good Florida State team in the afternoon. I'm proud of the team and they showed flashes of outstanding play."

Auburn downed Florida State, 5-1, winning the one through five matches. Niclas Carlsson, ranked No. 79, defeated No. 18 Jack Maguire, 4 and 3, in the top position, No. 99 Matt Gilchrest downed No. 129 Hank Lebioda, 2-up, Will Long defeated Rowin Caron, 2 and 1, No. 119 Jake Mondy defeated Joaquin Lolas, 4 and 2, and Daniel Stringfellow defeated Harry Ellis 3 and 2.

Auburn dropped the semifinal match, 4-2, picking up a win out of Ryan Benton over Vince Whaley, 2 and 1, in the No. 6 match, and halving the Mondy vs. Bo Andrews and Carlsson vs. No. 7 Ollie Schniederjans matches.

Auburn next heads to the SEC Championships at the Seaside Golf Club in Sea Island, Ga. The event runs April 25-27.
