Emma Abramson put up a very good 41 for Sandwich while Dylan McCabe was next with a 41. Mitchell Norkevicius rounded out the six scores that counted for the Knights, finishing his day with a 42. Zarren Graff and Adam Schwager each had rounds of 45.
For Falmouth, Chris Shanahan had one of his best days of the season to lead the team with a 39. Connor Hennigan and Kyle Souza were both near the top of the lineup, scoring 40 each. Declan Norris was next for the home team, scoring 42, and Bud Driscoll shot a round of 43.
