The Sandwich golf team continues to make tough courses look like mini golf holes.
Hosting Martha’s Vineyard on Tuesday, October 5 on the par 36 front nine of Sandwich Hollows, the Knights saw two players shoot under 40 as they edged out the Vineyarders, 255-260.
Junior Mike Barrasso tied the Vineyard’s Pete Gillis as both shot a 38 on the afternoon, but Sandwich was aided by the performance of Thomas Hurley, who shot a three-over 39.
Hurley was followed by junior Sam Hood’s 41. The combined five stroke difference between Hurley and Hood and their MV counterpart’s scores of 42 and 43 proved to be the difference between winning and losing for Sandwich.
Colin Norkevicius shot a 44 to tie MV’s Liam Marek. Parker Hunt tied with Andrew Marchard, as the two shot a 46 while Sandwich’s James Murray and MV’s Jacob Silvia each shot a 47 to round out the top scorers for either team.
The win comes five days after the Knights dominated Falmouth on its home course of The Cape Club on Thursday, October 3. Hunt was the low scorer for Sandwich on the afternoon, tying the Clippers’ Jake McKenzie’s 40. Hood shot a 41 to beat out Harry Hennessey’s 48 in convincing fashion.
Both Mike Barrasso and Thomas Hurley’s 43 was more than enough to beat out Falmouth’s Jack Hamilton (49) and Mike Maseda (51). Colin Norkevicius and Tyler Pino each shot a 50 on the par 36 front nine and that was still good enough to beat the Clippers Connor Hennigan (52) and Nick Champani (53).
Sandwich (12-2, 7-0 C&I Atlantic) host nonleague foe Duxbury on Monday, October 14 at 3:15 PM at The Ridge Club.
