Bruin golfers Brianna Do and Tiffany Lua endured different results on opposite sides of the U.S. Women's Amateur Publinks bracket Friday at the Old MacDonald Course at Bandon Dunes, Ore.

Do won her quarterfinal match against teammate Stephanie Kono - proving that last year's victory over the consensus first-team All-American in the same tournament was no fluke - and then recharged to beat Annie Park of Levittown, PA, 2-up in the semifinals.

Do will be making her first appearance in tomorrow's 36-hole final.

Lua won her quaterfinal 7 & 6 against Brittany Altomare of Shrewsbury, MA, but lost 2 & 1 in the semifinals to Marissa Dodd of Allen, TX.

The match between Do and Kono see-sawed until the 14th hole when Do birdied to take a 1-up lead. The next three holes were halved and Do sealed the victory with a birdie at the 18th.

Against Park, Do never trailed although she did lose an early 2-up lead by the 10th hole. At the 16th, she had rebuilt that cushion with a birdie at the 14th and a bogey at the 16th. The 17th was halved and she had earned a trip to the finals.

In the quarterfinals, Lua built a 5-up lead at the turn. She sealed her victory with a winning par and bogey at the 11th and 12th holes, respectively.

Against Dodd, Lua lost an early 2-up lead, only to move ahead at the 5th with a par. The match was evened at the 7th when Dodd made a par. Dodd won the 8th and 9th holes and was 3-up after a winning par at the 12th. Lua cut the lead to 1-up by the 15th, but Dodd won the 16th with a par. The 17th was halved and Lua had run out of holes sending Dodd to the finals.
