With the Central MA title under its belt, Algonquin Golf vied for the State honors on Monday. The team fell short at 7th place in the Division 1 Championships.

One of the team’s top players didn’t make it to the greens and another didn’t fare as well as he hoped. The Telegram reports:

Any chance that Algonquin had of contending for the state title was probably lost when senior Matt Umphrey became sick and had to stay home. Umphrey had tied for second behind [Jack] Tobin in the Central Mass. tournament last week and won it last year.

“We thought if we both had played our ‘A’ game,” Tobin said, “we could have won, and once he wasn’t here, we knew we couldn’t win, and I wasn’t as focused as I would have liked to be.”

Nevertheless, Tobin still managed to card a 4-over 75, tops among Central Mass. golfers. Last week, he shot the same score, and it was good enough to earn him Central Mass. Division 1 medalist honors, but on Monday, it tied him for 10th. (read more)

Other Gonk teams have just begun their championship bids in region sectionals.

4th seed Field Hockey shut out lower seed Doherty 7-0 in yesterday’s Central MA First Round. The Girls will play 5th seed Auburn in the Quarter Finals on Friday. The game is posted as 2:30 pm on November 2nd with location TBA.

Volleyball enters the fray this afternoon. The 9th seed team will go up against 8th seed Westford Academy for the Central/Western MA First Round at 5:00 pm in Westford. If they win, they’ll have to take on top seed Acton-Boxboro for the Quarter Finals. 

Boys Soccer will hope to start the tourneys the same way they started the season, by beating Groton-Dunstable. The 7th seed Gonk team will host the 10th seed challengers on Saturday at 7:00 pm. If they win, they’ll face Marlborough in the Quarter Finals on Monday.

Girls Soccer starts with the Quarter Finals on Monday at 5:00 pm. The 4th seed Girls will host 5th seed Westborough, a team they already beat this season. If they prevail, they’ll play in Semi-Finals a week from tonight.
