GEARHART — The Seaside boys golf team rebounded from a dismal showing Monday to defeat Astoria in a dual match Tuesday at Gearhart Golf Links, 354-361.

The Gulls came back from a 1- stroke deficit after nine holes to outpace the Fishermen on the back nine.

Seaside finishes the Cowapa League schedule at 3-1, with districts up next week.

Astoria’s Campbell Roscoe was Tuesday’s medalist, as he carded an 83 (40-43).

Charlie Kloss and Andrew Gooch led the Gulls with a pair of 86’s. The rest of Seaside’s scoring came from a pair of 91’s for Joe Huddleston and Garrett Flowers, followed by Seth Duncan (93).

“It was good to get this win after (Monday),” said Seaside Jim Poetsch. “We didn’t get any great scores today, but we didn’t have any terrible ones either. Gooch put together a pretty good round and has played right with Charlie the past two days. He had seven pars and one of our only two birdies on the day.”

Huddleston had a birdie on the fourth hole.

“I was a bit worried after the front nine when we were trailing, but we played some pretty good golf on the back side,” Poetsch said. “I think it is the tougher of the two sides and we had four scores of 44 or better. If we play like we did on the back, we will give ourselves a good chance to finish in the top two next week.”

After Roscoe, Astoria’s other scorers were Will Brooks (86), Austin Flukinger (94), David Harrison (98) and Noah Muniz-Hilton (108).

The Seagulls also won the junior varsity event, 409-458. Seaside freshman Sam Hinton was medalist with a 97, while teammate Trenten Meyer was a stroke back at 98.
