BRYAN, Texas – The University of Houston Men’s Golf team stood in fifth place midway through the Aggie Invitational Second Round on Saturday evening before play was suspended due to darkness.

After posting a team score of 301 in the morning round, the Cougars were at 8-over in the afternoon session with all student-athletes completing at least 12 holes in the Second Round.

The Second Round resumes at 8 a.m., Sunday on the 7,146-yard, par-72 course with the Final Round to begin shortly after its completion.

Senior Michael Perras and junior Matt Williams were tied for fifth at +1 before stopping Second-Round play to lead the Cougars.

Perras drained six birdies in his First Round Saturday, including four on his first nine, on the way to a 2-under 70 to post the Cougars’ low round of the day. The defending American Athletic Conference Championships medalist was at +3 in his Second Round.

Williams overcame tough starts in each of his two rounds to join Perras among the Top-5 leaders. Starting at No. 10, the Calgary, Alberta, native stood at +3 through his first three holes in the first round, but drained three birdies on the final six holes of his first nine.

Williams endured only one bogey on his second nine and used a birdie on the 584-yard, par-5 eight hole to return to even par in the First Round.

He started at +3 through his first 12 holes in the afternoon session but took advantage of back-to-back birdies on Nos. 4-5 to stand at +1 before play was halted.

No. 8 Alabama stood atop the team leaderboard at +6, while No. 31 Kent State was in second at +15. No. 1 Oklahoma State (+16), No. 2 Texas A&M (+18) and No. 12 LSU (+19) completed the Top-5 leaders with Michigan (+22), North Texas (+32), No. 16 Arkansas (+32) and No. 10 Baylor (+34) rounding out the Top-10
