Baltimore beats Washington, ends five-year losing streak

September 21, 1997|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

The pairings of Joel Kaye-Rick Riddle and Bob Kaestner-Justin Klein each scored 3-0 wins to lead Baltimore past Washington, 10 1/2 to 7 1/2 , in their annual team match at Hillendale Country Club yesterday. The victory ended Washington's five-year winning streak.

The Kaestner-Klein pair shot 5-under-par 67 to thwart Dave Rasley-Mike Watson, who combined for a 70, and Kaye-Riddle posted a 68 in turning back Matt Lucas and Henri deLozier.

Marty West III-Vance Welch, the State Amateur finalists, teamed to get 6-under for 14 holes in beating Adrian Druzgala-Alan Zimmerman, 3-0.

Washington received some late heroics, or the score might have been more convincing.

Bobby Bilbo, who with West and Baltimore's Steve Thomas were just back from the U.S. State Team championships in Arizona, birdied the 18th to salvage a point against Tim Dilli-Larry Storck, and Jack Vardaman's 17th-hole birdie meant a half for the match he and Bob Sherwood had with Clark MacKenzie-Jackie Rites.

Baltimore 10 1/2 -D.C. 7 1/2 : Clark MacKenzie-Jackie Rites split with Jack Vardaman-Bob Sherwood, 1 1/2 -1 1/2 ; Adrian Druzgala-Alan Zimmerman lost to Marty West III-Vance Welch, 0-3; Tim Dilli-Larry Storck def. Bobby Bilbo-Tim Landers, 2-1; Joe Kaye-Rick Riddle def. Matt Lucas-Henri deLozier, 3-0; Bob Kaestner-Justin Klein def. Dave Rasley-Mike Watson, 3-0; Mike Larson-Steve Thomas lost to J. R. Shasteen-Joel Sandler, 1-2.
