TALLAHASSEE, Fla. --- Georgia sophomore Rocio Sanchez Lobato remained atop the individual leaderboard following the second round of the Florida State Match-Up Tournament at Southwood Golf Course, while the 16th-ranked Bulldogs slipped from first to third in the team field on Saturday.

Sanchez Lobato signed for a 2-over 74 and is tied with Furman's Laura Weam at 4-under 140 entering the final round. The Bulldogs' 12-over 300 leaves them tied with Tennessee at 590, eight shots off the pace of No. 6 Oklahoma.

Georgia started slow and dropped to fourth, reclaimed the lead after the turn but then stumbled down the stretch.

"I was pleased with the way we fought back," head coach Josh Brewer said. "Through 14 holes, I think we had a three-shot lead, but we lost something like 11 shots on the last four or five holes. We were in perfect position but didn't end very well."

The tournament also features a "Match-Up" competition, with two schools combining their low four and high individual rounds for an additional score. Georgia and Oklahoma shot 4-over 364 on Saturday and own a four-shot edge of the duo of Florida State and Texas A&M, 730-735.

Freshman Manuela Carbajo Ré supplied Georgia's low loop of the day with a 1-under 71. The Bulldogs also counted a pair of 74s from Sanchez Lobato and Kailey Walsh and an 81, the score posted by both Emilie Burger and Amira Alexander. Collins Bradshaw, who is competing as an individual, shot 82 on Saturday.

Carbajo Ré's round was even more impressive considering she started the day with a double-bogey followed by a bogey. The Bulldogs teed off from No. 10 and played the back side of the course first. After that 3-over opening, she birdied No. 15 and eagled No. 16 to turn at even. A pair of birdies at No. 1 and No. 4 pushed her to 2-under but she gave back a stroke with a bogey at No. 5 before finishing with a quartet of pars.

"Manuela played great after her start," Brewer said. "She 4-putted on the first hole and 3-putted on the second. After that, she settled down and stayed steady the rest of the day. She's as cool a customer as you'll ever meet. To shoot 1-over after her start is very impressive."

Overall, Carbajo Ré is tied for fourth at 1-under 143, three strokes away from her co-leading teammate, while Walsh and Bradshaw are tied for 37th at 154, Burger is tied for 42nd at 156 and Alexander is tied for 51st at 158.

The sixth-ranked Sooners shot 4-under 284 on Saturday and lead Florida State by six shots in the team race. Trailing the Bulldogs and Lady Volunteers are No. 21 Texas A&M at 595, Furman at 597, No. 15 Notre Dame at 599, Texas-San Antonio at 608, Kansas and Michigan both at 616, UNC Greensboro at 624 and UNC Wilmington at 630.

Sunday's final round will begin with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Live scoring is being updated on a three-hole basis at www.golfstat.com.
