“What a good bounce back win for our team,” Elma head coach Collin McMaster said. “They came into this match as focused and confident as I have seen to begin a round. They started hot right out of the gate and let that momentum carry them along throughout the day.”

Riley Montoure led Hoquiam with a round of 40.

Oliver Costales shot a 48 for the Grizzlies.

Trevon Ramos scored a 47 to round out the Bobcats top five scorers.

“It is sure nice to be on the winning side of something that wasn’t supposed to happen. On paper, we should not have defeated Tumwater today,” Aberdeen head coach Dan Sundstrom said. “I hate to say it, but I think we like to play golf in the rain. We had our lowest team score of the season. … It was a great day to be a ‘soaked’ Bobcat.”

Aberdeen takes on Rochester at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday at Highland Golf Course.
