Marriotts Ridge boys golf edges Reservoir, stays unbeaten

In a span of two days, Marriotts Ridge’s boys golf team has endured a weather-shortened tri-match and its closest overall match of the season thus far.

In the end, with its sweep of Glenelg and Oakland Mills Wednesday followed by a 61-56 victory over Reservoir on Thursday, the Mustangs’ undefeated streak lives on.

Manny Guillen’s 18 points led the way for Marriotts Ridge (5-0) at Willow Springs against the Gators, as the Mustangs posted their lowest team total of the year. The team, which did not play their top two players in terms of scoring average — Isaac Kim (26 points) and Akash Marakath (23) — had scored 84 or more points in each of its previous matches.

Ultimately, Marriotts Ridge did just enough to stay unbeaten and win its 60th straight county match overall. Behind Guillen, Josh Lee posted 17 points, Will Morgan had 14 and Daniel Tuma 12.

For Reservoir (0-3), Trace Teodori posted a match-best 21 points to lead the way in the loss.

A day earlier at Cattail Creek, Marriotts Ridge was ahead of both the Gladiators and Scorpions when lightning forced the match to be suspended. When it was determined that play could not continue, the match was called and — with Marriotts Ridge leading both matches — the Mustangs were named the winner.

The lead group was on the seventh hole when play was halted. No individual scores for any team in the match will count toward the end of the season averages.

Marriotts Ridge is back in action on Tuesday at Waverly Woods against fellow undefeated Atholton.
