WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The 2018 Men's City Golf Tournament is in its third and final weekend. Saturday's semi-final match play rounds were held at Purdue's Ackerman-Allen Golf Course, located at the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex. 

The final four in the championship flight of match play included finalists Matt Toney and Ben Mattingly who edged Cam Westjohn and Nic Hofman. 

Toney, a two-time city champion, beat Westjohn 3 & 1 after 17 holes. Mattingly a division-one golfer himself, beat Harrison High School standout Nic Hofman 4 & 2 through 16 holes.

"The back nine was really my best golf and I knew that I would have to play my best golf to beat Nic, and fortunately I did," said Mattingly. "I really didn't miss any shots out there on the back nine and I birdied three holes there at the end to close him out."

"I hit a lot of greens on the front nine I was striking the ball pretty well I didn't get in a lot of trouble, and when I did, I was able to get it up and down," said Toney. "I hit a couple bad shots but most of the time I was able to get it up and down and make a couple puts."

Toney and Mattingly tee off at 8:50 a.m. Sunday morning for the city championship from the Kampen Course on Purdue's campus.
