With two unfinished matches left heading into Tuesday's final round of the Mid-American Match Play, the Ball State men's golf team won both of its holes to advance to the finals of the Earl Yestingsmeier Championship Bracket.

James Blackwell and Albert Jennings both won their final hole of play to earn the Cardinals a tie with Xavier and advanced to the finals by virtue of the match-play tiebreaker.

Ball State is facing Eastern Michigan in the finals, while Xavier is facing Eastern Kentucky in the third-place match.

In the first two rounds of play, Tyler Merkel won both of his matches, while McCormick Clouser and Keegan McKinney were 1-1 on the day.
