Lee Sanchez is in position to defend his Atomic City Invitational title with a big win.

In Sunday's final of the Atomic City Invitational match-play tournament, reigning champion Sanchez will go up against another former ACI winner, Cale Jones. Tee-off in the 27-hole final event is slated for 7:30 a.m.

Also in tournament play Saturday, Nick Silva won the senior men's title, clinching the win with a solid 6 and 5 victory over Fred Robinson. Also Saturday, Martha Waters picked up the women's ACI crown by topping Lynne Taylor 3 and 2.

For Waters, it was her first ACI victory since 2002. Waters shot even-par on the front nine Saturday en route to the win.

In the senior men's flight, Silva knocked off two-time defending champion Eddie Sanchez Friday, then came back Saturday to shoot a 2-under par through 13 holes.

In the men's championship flight, Lee Sanchez rolled to a 5 and 4 victory over Ted Ball to earn his second straight trip to the final round.
