Casco — Will Kannegieser rolled in a 5-foot birdie putt on the fourth extra hole Thursday to defeat Caleb Manual in the championship match of the Maine State Golf Association Match Play Invitational at Point Sebago.

Kannegieser, a senior at Williams College, trailed by two holes with three to play, but made a 40-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole. After both players made pars on No. 17, Manuel, a Mt. Ararat High senior, found both the woods and the water on 18, allowing Kannegieser to send the match to extra holes.

Both players parred the first three playoff holes before Kannegeiser made a birdie on No. 18, ending the longest championship match in the tournament’s 10-year history.
