We had times today when we didn’t execute the shots we needed to execute. On a few of these hole locations, the ball had to be in certain spot on the green from the fairways or the tee boxes. At times, we did execute and were able to make those birdies, but a few other times we hurt ourselves. We know exactly what is there in front of us by playing this course and being familiar with it. It just comes down to execution for us. I expect we will come out tomorrow ready to play and execute those shots tomorrow.

Charlotte moved up one spot to ninth from round one to round two after 36 holes on Saturday at the Irish Creek Collegiate, co-hosted by Charlotte, Davidson and the Charlotte Sports Foundation at The Club at Irish Creek and its Par-71, 7,099-yard course.

The 49ers are at 17-over (294 291  585) and trail Kansas by one stroke and Marshall by two strokes with one round left to play on Sunday.

North Carolina sits one-under after two rounds (282 285  567) and has a four shot lead over second-place Davidson with a five-shot edge over North Carolina State and UNC Wilmington.

“We had times today when we didn’t execute the shots we needed to execute,” said Charlotte head coach Ryan Cabbage. “On a few of these hole locations, the ball had to be in certain spot on the green from the fairways or the tee boxes. At times, we did execute and were able to make those birdies, but a few other times we hurt ourselves. We know exactly what is there in front of us by playing this course and being familiar with it. It just comes down to execution for us. I expect we will come out tomorrow ready to play and execute those shots.”

Charlotte junior Franco Castro (Alpharetta, Ga. / LSU) has the 49ers low score after round two, sitting in a tie for seventh at one-under (72 69  141) following his two-under second-round 69 Saturday.  It was Charlotte’s lone sub-par round, despite five of ten rounds within three shots of level par.

Playing as an individual, senior Braeden Cryderman (Huntsville, Ontario / Queens University of Charlotte) is tied for 23rd at three-over (71 74  145) with one round to play

Individually, Davidson’s Richard Fountain tied for the tournament low round with a second-round 66 to sit at six-under (70 66  136). Fountain is one shot ahead of Kennesaw State’s Jimmy Beck, two shots better than North Carolina’s Michael McGowan, three shots up on North Carolina State’s Albin Choi and four shots better than a pair of UNCW golfers, Thomas Bass and Payne McLeod.

The teams will go off in the shotgun format Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m.
