CUMBERLAND — Birdies on each of the three extra holes in the woods propelled Bill Shreve and Jay Goodman to victory in Week 8 of Winter Doubles League on Sunday at Central Assembly of God in Cumberland.

Upcoming events for the Allegany County Disc Golf Club through March 4. Visit for details on the tournament, glow rounds and more.

Shreve, 46, of Cumberland, and Goodman, 20, of Frostburg, combined to throw only two bogeys on the day as they finished with an 11 under par 54 in best shot format (no cap) on the 21-hole layout, which included 12 from the short tees and nine from the long tees. They occurred on No. 7 from both short and long. The basket was made into an island hole a 40-foot diameter. Failing to hit that from the tee pad sent players to a drop zone with a slight down hill path to the pin some 65 feet away.

All 12 players’ names were entered into a random generator and with the click of a button and the spin of a digital wheel, teams were formed. The result? Six teams were separated by a total of seven strokes. The day, marked by a start time temperature of about 54 degrees with a shining sun and negligible winds of around 3 mph, was the final club round of WDL and served as a tuneup for the Allegany County Disc Golf Doubles Championship on March 4, which features a morning round at Central followed by an afternoon round at Mile Lane Disc Golf in Mount Savage.

Colby Mallery, 19, of Mount Savage, and Kevin Spradlin, 43, of Frostburg, matched the winning team over the traditional 18 holes with a seven under par 47. However, Shreve and Goodman went 2-2-3 in the woods, while Mallery and Spradlin went 2-3-4. That effort, plus a bogey on long No. 5, resulted in a four-stroke deficit from which the pair (led by Mallery on the day) could not recover. The boge

Mallery and Spradlin finished second with a final tally of 56, two behind Shreve and Goodman. Shania Farris, 26, of Wiley Ford, W.Va., and Ethan Shreve, 18, of Cumberland, placed third with a 57 (including a 48 on the traditional 18). Tim Farris, 26, of Wiley Ford, and Luke Spradlin-Vogelsang, 9, of Frostburg, placed fourth with a 58. Ethan von Hagel, 20, of Cumberland, and Noah Spradlin, 23, of Frostburg, were one stroke back in fifth place with a 59 while Scott Mallery, 54, of Mount Savage, and Keith Raynor, 46, of Vale Summit, finished sixth with a 61.

The pair earned a birdie on 13 of 21 baskets (61.9 percent), including eight on the front 12. Mallery and Spradlin finished with 12 birdies (57 percent), followed by: Farris and Shreve (9); Farris and Spradlin-Vogelsang, and von Hagel and Spradlin (8); and Raynor and Mallery (7).

Week 8 notes

* Only two teams — Shania Farris and Ethan Shreve, plus Tim Farris and Luke Spradlin-Vogelsang — managed to drive and land inside the circle on the island hole on short No. 7; none of the six teams hit the mark on long 7. Round 1 of the Doubles Championship on March 4 is at Central, and both short and long 7 will be an island hole.

* Bill Shreve won CTP on long 7; he won a $10 gift certificate to the Mile Lane Disc Golf retail store.

* No ace was hit today; the ace pot is up to $147.

* The club has collected $603 that will go directly towards the Hoffman Park Ace Place Disc Golf Course in Frostburg, which will be the first public disc golf course in Allegany County.

* There are now five teams registered for the Allegany County Disc Golf Doubles Championship set for March 4. It is likely that Feb. 26 will be the last day to register.
