San Marcos improves to 4-0 in league play and Dos Pueblos is 3-1.
Chad Metzger of San Marcos and DP’s Andres Fairbairn shared medalist honors at 1-under par 70.
The next three Royals, Chad Visser, Bennett Reichard and Bryce Quesada, carded 72s, and Andrew Rice scored a 78.
Mikhan Benedictus and Zach Steinberger each fired 73s and Joseph Pigatti had a 76, and Luke Vigna an 80 for Dos Pueblos.
