Tie-breaker leads Orange to win over Chagrin Falls

Orange and Chagrin Falls battled to a 176-176 tie on Thursday, forcing the match to be decided by the fifth player on each scorecard.

Ilan Gen carded a 51 for the visiting Lions, edging Chagrin Falls’ fifth scorer, Will Winovich, by one stroke thus handing Orange the Chagrin Valley Conference victory.

“It is very encouraging when the three youngest players on your team lead your team to an important conference victory over a big rival,” said Orange coach Rich Clark. “This is a real step forward for a team with very little experience and it provides the motivation and confidence needed to become a better team in the future.”

Freshmen Jack Stover and Jackson Fellinger both shot 43 for the Lions while sophomore Dawson Goss shot a 44 and Kyle Haddon came in with a 46.

Clark Reboul led Chagrin Falls with a 43. Luca Opperman (44), Winston Breeden (44) and Kyle Zaluski (45) also scored for the Tigers.
