Taking the top spot in the B Division was the Berkshire Hills CC pairing of Mark Gilligan and Ed Chandler, who combined for a 66 to defeat Tony Salvatore and Dick Piretti by one shot. Dick Rivers and Dick Syriak finished third with a 69.
In the net competition, Dennis Dickenson and Mike Koperniak carded at 61 to win by two shots in the A Division over Dan Keegan and Ron McCasland while John Rybka and Wayne Shotts defeated Paul Traversa and Steve Messer in the B Division in a match of cards after both teams finished with a 62.
The divisions are determined by the combined ages of the teams, with the A Division the younger age group.
