Platt pings Perez in Goleta playoff

Niall Platt and Andrew Perez needed a three-hole playoff to decide Goleta’s City Championship at Glen Annie Golf Club this weekend.

Platt, a senior at Laguna Blanca, held off Perez, a former Santa Barbara Don, after both carded five-under 137s after two rounds.

Current Don Shane Lebow finished in third place, scoring an even-par round on Sunday to come up one stroke short of the playoff. Lebow shared the lead after the first day with Perez thanks to a four-under 67 on Saturday.

Platt posted a 68 on Saturday and caught Perez on Sunday by recording a 69.
