Raivel ousts Peet in match play

August 23, 1998|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Jason Raivel, who had seen a 3-up margin sliced to 1 up, won two holes in a row to restore his lead and hung on for a 3-and-2 triumph over Andy Peet in the quarterfinals of the first Baltimore Municipal match-play championship at Mount Pleasant Golf Course yesterday.

Both shot 4-over-par 40 on the front, and Raivel turned 1 up. He won 10 and 11, but Peet, who had gone 19 holes in his first two matches, stormed back to win the next two with pars.

Raivel claimed the next two, then Peet missed on his bid to stay alive at the 16th. Peet, a county council candidate in Baltimore County, watched his 8-foot birdie putt catch the edge of the cup and spin out.

The loss was Peet's first in individual match play since he was 16, and the 22 years since he has won several times every season.

The day's other pairing saw Young Lee turn 6 up and go on to defeat Mike Wickham, 8 and 6, and in a match played earlier in the week, Blair Laubach never trailed in turning aside Jonathan Ziegler, 3 and 1.

The semifinals and final will be next Sunday at Pine Ridge GC.
