Sequim 174, North Kitsap 216

PORT LUDLOW — The Wolves put together a solid performance in a sunny match on the par-36 front nine at Port Ludlow Golf Club.

Ben Sweet and Dominic Riccobene tied for match medalist honors for Sequim with rounds of 2-over-par 38, with Sweet sinking three birdies and Riccobene posting two.

“Ben Sweet had an amazing recovery shot from the bank of a pond on hole No. 6, having to remove his shoe and sock to hit it,” coach Sean O’Mera said. “Dominic Riccobene had an absolutely unreal up-and-down for birdie on hole No. 8, hitting a delicate chip shot perfectly down a slope to a tucked pin.”

Garret Hoesel added a 45 and Pryce Glasser a 53 for the Wolves.

“I am proud of the guys,” O’Mera said. “We still have not had a match yet where we have fired on all cylinders, but it is coming soon.”
