The effort did more than just leave her even with Upper Perkiomen’s Lindsay Bieler for game scoring honors … much, much more.

Owen J. Roberts 10, Boyertown 5 >> The Wildcats did all their scoring in their first two at-bats, then held the Bears at bay down the stretch to win Saturday’s PAC Liberty Division tilt.

Hill School 7, Mercersburg Acad. 2 >> The Blues travelled to Mercersburg Academy to play an 18-hole match at Chambersburg Country Club on Saturday. In this annual event, nine players from each team compete in match play from the blue tees. 

The Hill earned a decisive 7-2 victory, winning seven of the nine matches sparked by a total of 13 birdies. Billy Gussler and Lucas Steinmetz each closed out their opponents early on the back nine. Thomas Beaudoin and Marcus Smith also had comfortable wins. Andy Gan and Nick Rafetto both managed to win on the final holes of their matches.   

The match is unusual both in format and in competition as the focus is on camaraderie and sportsmanship rather than on winning. All players paused at the turn to enjoy a snack (following all protocols) and the players really enjoyed the fellowship of the day.
