Panthers Continue Strong Play By Beating All AMCC Teams At La Roche

PITTSBURGH -- The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford men's golf team continued its strong play into Tuesday's event hosted by La Roche at Wildwood Country Club.

The Panthers finished third out of 10 teams with a score of 319, behind Saint Vincent (316) and California U (318). 

Pitt-Bradford was the top team of all AMCC squads in the event.

"It was a struggle out there, but the guys hung in there. The course played really difficult," Head Coach Keith Stauffer said. "We are proving to be a contender in the conference, beating all the other teams in the AMCC once again."

Pitt-Bradford's team success was guided by Johnny Fiore's score of 76, which tied for the individual lead. Fiore played a tiebreaker to determine the event's medalist but did not come out victorious.

Three strokes behind Fiore was Cooper Cordova who shot a 79. 

Cary Ignaczak shot an 81 -- working a 37 on the front nine holes to lead the Panthers early on.

Matt Moonan shot an 83 and Jamie Rook fired a 91 to round out the Panther competitors. 

The Panthers bested Penn State-Behrend by just one stroke, as the Lions shot a 320.

Up next, the Panthers will have the rest of the week off as they next compete at the Westminster Invitational hosted at New Castle Country Club Monday.
