PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (August 14, 2014) — Call it the Clash of the Yolo Causeway.

Aaron Beverly, a junior at Sacramento State, and Matthew Seramin, a senior just down the Interstate-80 corridor at UC Davis, will meet in Friday’s finals of the 111th NCGA Amateur Match Play Championship after the pair swept through both their quarterfinals and semifinals on a grueling day at par-72 Spyglass Hill.

Beverly stamped his finals ticket via a 1-up semifinals win over Ryan Han, while Seramin moved on with a 19th hole victory over Matt Cohn.

“It was a grind all day,” said Beverly, the No.1 seed. “It’s physically and mentally exhausting.”

Playing in his first career match play event, Beverly finally got past the No.12 seeded Han when the freshman to be at UC Davis missed a 3 foot putt for birdie on the 18th hole that would have sent the match to extra holes. With Han’s miss, the two halved the hole par with pars, thanks to a brilliant up and down by Beverly from off the green.
