The momentum continued for Hurley in the afternoon round as he built his lead to 8 holes at the turn before Sajevic again claimed the 10th hole trimming the lead to 7. The pair halved the par 3 11th hole with pars and the 12th hole with eagle 3's ending the match 7 and 6.
Hurley has two years of eligibility remaining at Texas A&M University where his team won the national championship in May. He previously won the match play championship in 2007.
