SAN FRANCISCO - Three Golden Bears remain standing in the Battle in the Bay Classic after Saturday's action, with seniors Christoffer Konigsfeldt and Riki McLachlan playing in the third-place doubles match and junior Campbell Johnson playing in the consolation singles semifinal round on Sunday at the California Tennis Club.

Second-seeded Konigsfeldt-McLachlan won twice in the doubles draw, beating the Cal Poly pair of Marco Comuzzo and Matt Thomson, 8-5, and then the twosome of Richard Bucalem (San Francisco) and Scott Sears (Boise State), 8-6. But the Bears couldn't get past Stanford's Nolan Paige and Anthony Tsodikov, who prevailed, 8-6, in the semifinals. The Cal duo plays Pacific's Alex Golding and Alex Hamilton for third place on Sunday.

Another Cal pair - Johnson and freshman Mads Engsted - fell to Golding-Hamilton, 8-6, in Friday's first round.

In the singles main draw, Johnson made a valiant effort but lost to top-seeded Yannick Hanfmann of USC, 6-4, 6-7 (4), 6-1, in the first round. The Bear moved on to the back draw and this time beat a Trojan - Matt Kecki - 6-4, 6-1, in the first round. Johnson then topped Pacific's Denis Stolyarov, 6-3, 6-2, to book a spot in the semifinal against Stanford's Tsodikov at 10 a.m. on Sunday.

Also in the singles main draw, three Bears won first-round matches. Konigsfeldt - the third seed - edged Cal Poly's Thomson, 6-2, 6-3, before falling to USC's Max De Vroome, 6-3, 6-4, in the round of 16. McLachlan outlasted Tsodikov, 7-5, 7-6 (8), in the round of 32, but lost to USC's fourth-seeded Eric Johnson, 6-1, 6-2, in second match. Engsted survived a tough match with Stanford's Paige, 6-7, 7-5, 6-4, before dropping a 6-1, 6-0, match to USC's Jonny Wang.

The third-annual event, which began on Friday, ends on Sunday.
