Pete Skirpstas of Medina posted a 68 on Cleveland Am Saturday for the low round of the day.

Dave SotkaDave Sotka of Chardon backed up his first round 71 with a second one, maintaining a one shot lead in the 2010 Cleveland Amateur Golf Championship at Manakiki after Saturday.

But with a slightly friendlier golf course setup on this second day of play, a handful of guys posted under par rounds to put some heat on Sotka.

Two-time Cleveland Am champion Brad Steven of Concord shot a 3-under par 69 on Saturday to get to 1-under par after 36 holes, while Mark Belasic of Mentor followed up yesterday’s even par round with a 1-under 71 today to sit at 1-under total.

Pete Skirpstas of Medina posted the low round of the day, shooting a smooth 34-34 for a 4-under par 68 to get to even par for the championship and just two shots back of Sotka.

Doug Barber also posted 1-under par 71 and sits at 1-over par for the tournament, very much within striking distance.

Jim StultsAnd in a real hot streak that shows what’s possible in tomorrow’s final round, Jim Stults of Seven Hills (left) made six birdies in a row from holes 11 – 16 to shoot a scorching 30 on the back nine at Manakiki.

Sunday’s final round should be quite a shoot-out!
