SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (March 12th, 2017) -- A handful of matches went beyond just 18 holes as the San Francisco City Championship is down to less than 10 players.

Fifth-seed Brendan Hy of San Ramon is the highest seed remaining in the field after knocking out Mikey Slesinksi and Sebastian Iqbal in Sunday's round of 32 and Round of 16 matches.

Hy will now face Ned Jensen who took out last year's semifinalist Ben Peters in 19 holes to advance to the quarterfinals. Jensen is playing well at the course he works at, TPC Harding Park.

One the most notable players to make it to the quarterfinals is 2016 U.S. Mid-Amateur quarterfinalist Jason Anthony who advanced with a narrow 1 up win over Lucas Lam. The match was all-square through 15 holes before Anthony made clutch birdie on the par-4 16th. The final two holes were halved with pars and Anthony will now face University of San Francisco Golfer Seb Crookall-Nixon.

Graysen Huff will take on Brian Ma in the third quarterfinals match. Huff has knocked out Cal Bear Sebastian Crampton along with Christian Banke on his way to the quarters.

The final match will be between Kyle Wilkinson and the winner of the Brandon Jacobs and Kalle Kangas match which went to 19 holes before being suspended due to darkness. Amazingly, Wilkinson was the 63-seed who had to earn his spot through a playoff after the stroke play qualifier. He took out second-seed Ashkaan Hakim in the opening round and hasn't looked back since.

The San Francisco City Championship will continue with quarterfinal matches at 7:30 a.m. local time March 18th.
