GOLF: Ford, McCord power PA to win

August 2, 2013 7:00 a.m. ALLIANCE, Ohio — — Cochranton’s Zach Ford and Titusville’s Matt McCord teamed up to lead Pennsylvania to an impressive 19 1/2-12 /2 win at the 12th annual Bi-State Challenge at Alliance Country Club on Wednesday and Thursday.

The Bi-State challenge pits 16 golfers — 10 boys and six girls — from Western Pennsylvania against 16 from Ohio.

The first day of action saw Ford and McCord team up for morning best-ball action against Ohio’s Corey Barnett and Travis Fowler. The Pa. duo notched a 2 and 1 victory as Pennsylvania took best-ball play by a score of 5-3.

Afternoon play saw teams switch to alternate shot. Ford and McCord again teamed up against Barnett and Fowler, and this one was not even close. In a manner that would make Ryder Cup golfers jealous, the local pair rolled to a 6 and 5 win. Pa. grabbed a 4 1/2-3 1/2 advantage in alternate shot, and took a 9 1/2-6 1/2 lead into the second day of action.

Thursday was all about singles.

McCord took on Barnett for the third time in the tournament, and the results were no different. The Titusville duffer wrapped up a perfect tournament with a 3 and 1 victory.

Ford found a new challenge in Ohio’s Jacob Braskett. Much like McCord, the results were no different as Ford, who plays scholastically for Meadville, closed out his perfect two days with a ridiculous 6 and 5 victory.

Annie Ciacchini, a golfer for the Villa Maria girls team, was also perfect in three matches.

Ford, McCord and Ciacchini are all eligible for next year’s Bi-State Challenge, which will be held at Oakland Beach Golf Club in Conneaut Lake.
