Wildcats fall. 3-2, to eighth-seeded UNLV


TUCSON, Ariz. ?- The University of Arizona men’s golf team lost its consolation match Sunday the Callaway Golf Collegiate Match Play Championship in Fort Worth, Texas, and was eliminated from competition.


For the second match in a row, 16th-seed Arizona got a pair of individual wins, but couldn’t get the decisive point, this time in dropping a 3-2 decision to eighth-seeded UNLV.


Junior Creighton Honeck posted a 1-up win over UNLV’s Matt Kinsinger and junior Travis Esway topped the Rebels’ Blake Trimble, 2-up.  But that was all the scoring for the Wildcats, as the remaining three players in the lineup, Nathan Tyler, Josh Esler and Ben Fox fell by respective scores of 2 and 1, 2 and 1, and 4 and 3.


Arizona tied for 13th place in the 16-team event.


The Wildcats will next be in action, Nov. 6-7, at the CordeValle Collegiate in San Martin, Calif.
