Reedsport graduate Monica Vaughn came up short of her goal of a second Oregon Women's Amateur title Saturday, falling 7 and 5 to Gigi Stoll of Beaverton in the final.

Vaughn, who was the event's youngest champion when she won in 2010, couldn't overcome an early run of birdies by Stoll.

The Beaverton High School senior won five of the first eight holes in the match - which was slated for 36 holes. She won the second, fifth and eighth holes with birdies and two others when Vaughn had bogeys.

Vaughn never came closer than four-down in the rest of the match as Stoll posted a score of 4-under through the first 18 holes. Stoll finished the morning round with a 6-up lead.

Vaughn was 1-over for the first nine holes of the second round, but could not make up any ground and Stoll finished the match with a birdie on the 31st hole.

Vaughn, who graduated from Reedsport last year, just completed her freshman season at Arizona State University.

University of Oregon golfer Thomas Lim was similarly dominant in the men's final at the OGA Golf Course in Woodburn, beating Austin Landis of Gladstone by a 7 and 6 margin.
