-A A +A
By Mike Cote

Warren Finch cruised to a big victory over two-time Atomic City Invitational champion Cale Jones Thursday.

Finch topped Jones 5 and 4 to advance to Friday's second round of the ACI. It was one of the biggest wins of the first rounds for Finch, who picks up another tough draw Friday, taking on 2008 ACI runner-up Jason Norman.

In all Thursday, three matches were decided by scores of 5 and 4. Norman knocked off Darrin Knox by that score and reigning champion Lee Sanchez earned that mark in a victory over Phil Pendorf.

Meanwhile, Curt Norman and Brett Hollander needed an extra hole to win Thursday, while Kevin Brake held off Nathan Gruda in the final hole of regulation.
