STANFORD, Calif. -- The No. 6 University of Oregon men's golf team fired a 3-under 277 in the second round of the U.S. Intercollegiate to move within one stroke of co-leaders Washington and San Diego State with 18 holes to play at Stanford Golf Course.

The Ducks stand at 3-over 563 through 36 holes, one shot better than No. 14 USC (564) and one behind the third-ranked Huskies and 33rd-ranked Aztecs (562).

As has become the norm this season, Oregon received stellar play from its top two golfers, sophomores Eugene Wong and Daniel Miernicki. Both players have a medalist performance to their credit in 2010 and both are in the hunt once again.

Miernicki followed his opening round of 70 with a 68 and heads into the final round tied for fourth at 2-under 138, two strokes behind leader Nick Taylor of Washington.

Wong also shot a 68 in Round 2 and stands in a tie for tenth at even par 140. Both players had three birdies and one bogey during Monday's afternoon round at the 6,742-yard course.

Jack Dukeminier and Andrew Vijarro are tied for 23rd at 3-over 143. Isaiah Telles (+6, 146) is tied for 41st , but his 71 contributed to UO's second-round score. Telles was in position to break par if not for a double-bogey at the 464-yard, par 4 18th.

The 20-team field will take to the course for the final round Tuesday at 8 a.m.
