Dilcher, Kane to face off in Jr.-Jr. Boys’ Championship final

  MOORESTOWN, N.J.– Wednesday’s 59th edition of the Golf Association of Philadelphia’s Junior-Junior Boys’ Championship final is set to be a top-notch duel when Zachary Dilcher of Hartefeld National, the 2005 Junior-Junior Boys’ Champion, goes up against Alex Kane of Radley Run CC in an 18-hole grudge match at Moorestown Field Club (par 36, 2,899 yards).

  In Dilcher’s first match, the soon-to-be 9th grader at Kennett High School bested Kyle Martin of Commonwealth National GC, 4&3, Tuesday while Kane, an incoming 8th grader at The Tatnall School in Wilmington, Del., defeated Daniel Furman, also of Commonwealth National GC, 2&1.

  Dilcher and Kane swapped their methods of victory in their second match as Dilcher defeated David Pompey of the Country Club of Scranton, 2&1, and Kane took down R. Morgan Dougherty of Huntingdon Valley CC, 4&3.

  The two 13-year-old players, who have yet to trail at any point in the match play portion of the championship, will face off in an 18-hole, final-round match Wednesday morning to decide the 2007 Junior-Junior Boys’ Championship.
