HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa. --- Freshman Stephen Pastore (Greenwich, Conn.) shot a five-over par 75 Sunday to lead the University of Connecticut golf team's second-round scoring as the Huskies finished eighth at the Big 5 Invitational.
Pastore's 79-75-154 placed him in a six-way tie for 17th place overall, a logjam that also included two of his UConn teammates, senior Brian Hughes (Fairfield, Conn.) who shot 75-79-154, and junior Michael Masso (Suffield, Conn.) who shot 74-80-154.
Also for the Huskies, sophomore Chris Wiatr (Woodbury, Conn.) shot 80-80-160 to finish in a tie for 50th in the 99-player field, while freshman Zach Zaback (Farmington, Conn.) finished in a tie for 84th place with an 81-87-168.
Temple's Brandon Matthews (76-69-145) was the overall medalist of the two-day event, held at the Philmont Country Club, just outside Philadelphia. Bryce Edmister of Binghamton (73-73-146) and Greg Jarmas of Princeton (71-75-146) tied for second place.
UConn's aggregate 308-314-622 was eighth among the 19-team field. The University of Hartford, which last week won The Connecticut Club, won the Big 5 Invitational with an aggregate 318-291-609, just one stroke in front of Sacred Heart (306-304-610). Binghamton (311-301-612) finished third.
UConn will wrap up the fall portion of its 2012-13 schedule on Oct. 29-30, when it competes in Wendy's Kiawah Classic at Turtle Point Golf Course at Kiawah Island, S.C.
