Baltimore, Columbia win, set up state title rematch Both teams get points from every pairing


Baltimore Country Club and Columbia CC won area championships yesterday to set up today's rematch of last year's championship in the Maryland State team matches.

Baltimore CC qualified with a 12-6 victory over the CC of Maryland, and Columbia, defending state titlist, advanced by beating Congressional CC, 12-6. The winning clubs got points from every pairing in earning 6 1/2 points at home, 5 1/2 away.

The No. 3 teams for BCC dominated their foes, as Bob Kaestner-Bob Lee, playing at home, took three points from Joe Wintsch-John Bartholomew, and, at the CC of Maryland, Tim Dilli-Mike Reitz won 2 1/2 from a veteran pairing of Charlie Harris-Jackie Rites.

Among the other pairings at BCC, the father-son side of Richard-Justin Klein won the front, 4 up, and the match, from Butch Clemmens-George Marin, and, at the CCM, visitors Scott Hargest-Paul Obrecht got 2 1/2 points in the day's closest match, as they won the front, 1 up, and were even on the back against Gary Matz-Al Mank.

Kaestner-Lee produced the only shutout when Lee birdied the eighth and ninth holes for a 4-up lead; Kaestner birdied the 13th for a 2-up margin, and the two sides parred the remaining holes. BCC pro Brian Morrison and amateur partner Mike McShane won the back 2 up for a 1 1/2 -1 1/2 split with pro John Sarrett and Larry Storck.
