UMSL Tritons weekly rewind
The University of Missouri–St. Louis men’s golf team opened its season by winning the Arch Cup for the third consecutive year, besting a 14-team field at Gateway National Golf Links in Madison, Illinois. The Tritons set a school record with a 36-hole total of 550, shattering the previous record of 561 set at the 2016 Arch Cup. Cyril Henault, Juan Antonio Padilla and Joel Sylven each finished in a four-way tie for third with a total score of 136. Ian McCrary and Leo Baudry finished in a tie for 29th with scores of 146. UMSL put a second team in the field that finished ninth, led by Brandon DiMemmo‘s 3-over-par total of 145. The Tritons will play in their first two-day tournament of the fall season in the Doc Spragg Invitational on Sept. 19-20 at Findlay Country Club in Findlay, Ohio.
Senior forward Arman Kovac scored the decisive goal in the 51st minute of UMSL’s Great Lakes Valley Conference season-opening 1-0 victory at Lewis Sunday in Romeoville, Illinois. Kovac followed up his own shot after being stopped by Sebastian Doppelhofer and scored to snap the scoreless tie on an often rainy afternoon. UMSL (2-2-1, 1-0 GLVC) had to play a man down over the final 21 minutes but still pulled out the victory with goalie Austin Reis making six saves. The Tritons will next play Quincy on Friday at Don Dallas Field and will also play host to Illinois Springfield on Sunday.
UMSL split road matches with Maryville and Lewis last week, beating the Saints 1-0 in the first leg of the St. Louis Derby on Thursday before falling 2-1 against Flyers in Sunday’s GLVC opener in Romeoville, Illinois. Freshman Kennedi Hooks scored her first collegiate goal in the 28th minute, sending a cross into the penalty area that deflected off a defender into the net. The Tritons played fairly even at Lewis but came up short after Cameron Sengstock snapped a 1-1 tie with a goal in the 89th minute. Jalyn Richardson scored UMSL’s only goal in the 19th minute. The Tritons (2-3, 0-1 GLVC) will play host to Quincy on Friday and Illinois Springfield on Saturday.
The Tritons went 1-1 in the McKendree Triangular, beating the hosts in straight sets 25-8, 25-20, 25-16 in Friday’s first match before falling to Maryville 25-22, 25-23, 15-25, 25-20 in Lebanon, Illinois. Outside hitter Charlotte Richards led the way with a combined 39 kills in the two matches, including a season-best 23 in the loss to Maryville. Lexie Rang added 21 kills, and Caitlin Bishop had a combined 74 assists. UMSL (7-3) will open GLVC play next weekend when it visits Illinois Springfield on Friday and Quincy on Saturday.
