Matt Soreide beat Trevor Kulseth by just one stroke to claim the Championship flight of the Sweetwater Open golf tournament Sunday.

Kulseth finished with a total of 78, just one stroke less than Andrew Bagley, who placed third in the championship round.

After nine holes, Soveide had a one-stroke lead (36 to 37).

Karsen Kulseth won the first flight with a total of 76 strokes, the best score of the tournament. Kevin Bagley was second with a total of 84 strokes, barely beating out Mike Emch who finished with 85 strokes for the 18 holes.

In the second flight, it was Butch Cox winning with a score of 90, while Ken Steiner finished second with 92 and Deidre Mack was seven strokes back with a total of 99.
