RANDOLPH, Vt. -- It took two extra holes and a sudden death play-off, but MCLA's Matt Gover won his third individual title of the season today claiming the Tony Mariano Invitational hosted by Norwich University at the Montague Golf Club.
Gover shot an even par 71 with a birdie on the 8th hole and an eagle on the 15th to tie Norwich University's Cooper Bertrand before winning the title on the second play-off hole.
Two weeks ago, Gover won the Norwich Invitational on the same course and earlier this week he won the MCLA Invitational at the Waubeeka Country Club.
The Norwich Gray team took the overall team title with a combined score of 306 with New England College finishing second with a 309 and MCLA taking third place with a 320.
MCLA's Alex Ferris shot a 78 to finish tied for 6th. Fellow Trailblazers Paul Roeder (85), Alex Ferris (86) and Addam Brunner (98) all contributed to the team's third place finish.
