MEADVILLE - Meadville won its third straight Region 3 megamatch, this one at home, with Warren a distant second on Thursday.
Nate Sandberg, after winning the Blueberry Classic Golf Invitational on Wednesday, tied for low round at Meadville Country Club with Bulldog Matt Burchard. Both shot a 75. Anthony Deppas was second for Warren at 81.
"He just made a ton of pars," said Warren coach Dan Passmore, who said the greens in Meadville were quick. He said you could either put it in or putt right past the green in a hurry.
This year's format of golfing twice at each of the four courses will help golfers improve the second time around.
Meadville's top four shot 311, and Warren's a 332.
"We knew Meadville would be tough at Meadville," said Passmore. "We're playing at Blueberry on Monday, so we're hoping to give Meadville a little more on Monday."
