After getting off to a rousing start with a pair of wins in succession, the Falmouth High School boys’ golf team ran into a buzzsaw in the form of reigning Cape and Islands League champ Sandwich High School on Tuesday, October 6. The Blue Knights ended Falmouth’s win streak by winning a 237-274 match.
Falmouth did not play as well as it had been in its two previous matches, finishing 11 strokes higher than the last time out. Sandwich had everyone in its starting line go under 42 for the day.
Senior Mike Maseda had the low round of the day for the Clippers, firing a solid 42. Bud Driscoll was next for the Clippers, scoring one shot behind with a 43. Three Falmouth golfers finished with rounds of 47, as Harry Hennessy, Chris Shanahan and Connor Hennigan each had that number. Kyle Souza rounded out the scoring for Falmouth with a 48.
Hennigan had helped pace Falmouth to their wins over Barnstable (260-271) and Cape Cod Academy (263-310) in the first two patches. Hennigan had rounds of 40 in both matches. Maseda, who has also been playing very well, had a 41 against Barnstable and a 45 against CCA.
The two twins to start the season had Head Coach Rich Mason feeling good about where the team is headed. Sandwich aside, FHS has had a lot to feel good about of late.
“For us to win our first two matches is great. We haven’t had that many wins the last couple of years, and to start with two in a row felt really good,” Mason said.
