The last time UCT golf met Diman, the Tigers dominated the Rams on their home turf, winning 8.5 to 0.5.
That match occurred on September 11. Since then UCT has not lost. On Tuesday, October 1, the Rams had an opportunity to avenge the ugly loss at Sandwich Hollows.
Hosting Diman, UCT got its revenge in the form of a 6-3 victory to run its winning streak to eight games. The Rams top pair of Pat Ghelfi (41) and Connor McEntee (42) narrowly edged out the Diman brother tandem of Landon (42) and Hilton Bagin (43).
In the previous meet, Landon Bagin shot an even-par 36 while Hilton scored a two-over 38 to edge out McEntee’s 40 and Ghelfi’s 42.
The fifth and sixth Rams’ golfers also won their matches. Chris Peckham (56) outshot Diman’s Jayden Landry (60) while Pete Langan (53) squeaked by Ryan Fruci (56).
Ben George shot a 55 while Chase Romiza’s 56 rounded out the Rams’ scorecard on a blustery, overcast afternoon.
UCT 6, Cape Cod Academy 3
It didn’t take long for the Rams to clinch a sectional berth. UCT needed only 12 matches to reach nine wins and secure a spot in the Division 3 South Sectional golf tournament. They got there by defeating Cape Cod Academy on Monday, September 30 at Sandwich Hollows.
Ghelfi led the way with a 46 and McEntee wasn’t far behind with a 51. Romiza (52), George (55), Langan (57) and Peckham (58) also played well in the match win for the Rams.
