Dragons finish third at final megamatch

EDINBORO, Pa. – McDowell clinched a spot in the District 10 golf championship with a win in the final Region 6 megamatch of the season at Culbertson Hills Golf Course Monday.

The Trojans finished three strokes ahead of Erie Cathedral Prep to secure second place in the region. McDowell held off a late push from Warren, who finished third in the region, and will face the Ramblers in the D-10 team title match Oct. 4 at the Country Club of Meadville.

McDowell’s Max Paris took home individual honors with a 2-under 70. Warren’s Jared Bupp carded a 79 to finish sixth, while Selvie Pearson was in a 4-way tie for seventh, with Zach Henry (Prep), Kyle Westfall (Erie) and Will Neumaier (McDowell), with an 81. The Dragons’ Owen Blum tied Prep’s Phil Pedano for ninth at 84. Drew Swanson shot a 90 and Storm Sivak a 97 to round out the scoring for Warren.

The Dragons finished third behind McDowell (302) and Prep (305) with a team score of 334. Erie was fourth with a 351, just one shot ahead of Meadville (352). Fort LeBoeuf (371) was sixth with host General McLane (383) seventh.

Prep took home the Region 6 title with a final team score of 48 points. McDowell (43) was second, with Warren (31) third, Meadville (28) fourth, Erie (22) fifth, Fort LeBoeuf (18) sixth and General McLane (7) seventh.

Pearson was the lone Dragon to qualify for the District 10 Individual Championship. He finished 13th in the region with an average of 85.333.
