Coldstream’s Brandon Chai finished in a four-way share of 11th place in the B.C. Junior Boys Golf Championships Friday at the Kamloops Golf and Country Club.

Chai carded a final-round 73 to finish at 290. He scored a double-bogey on the par-5 second hole while reeling off three birdies. His earlier rounds were 75-72-70.

Ilirian opened with 68-69-71 and defeated Song Bai of Vancouver (Marine Drive) by four strokes.

Joel Veenstra of Smithers took third at 69-69-73-70-281, one stroke ahead of Michael Crisologo of Richmond (Marine Drive) and Khan Lee of Langley.
