Hanover — It took a tiebreaker to give the Hanover High golf team a win in a nine-hole match on Monday afternoon at Hanover Country Club.

The host Marauders tied with Timberlane, 201-201, when the top five players for each school were counted. The tiebreaking sixth score for each school settled the match. Hanover’s Cameron Woods shot a 9-over-par 43 on the front nine at HCC to top a 47 for Timberlane’s sixth player, shifting the decision in the favor of the Marauders.

Jack Meehan led Hanover with a 38, ahead of Peter Lukovits with a 39. Kyle Rozzi and Justin Alderdice each shot 41 and Caleb Hamblen shot 42.

“We’ve had this (a tie) happen a few times through the years, even in the state tournament,” Hanover coach John Donnelly said. “Every stroke counts, right down to the sixth guy.”

Barring an interruption from Mother Nature, the Marauders are scheduled to visit Londonderry and host school Bishop Guertin at Nashua Country Club today.

Team scores: Hanover 201, Timberlane 201, Exeter 203.

Hartford Second At Rutland Invitational

Rutland — Brady Hathorn shot a 5-over-par 75 to lead the Hurricanes to a second-place finish in the Rutland Invitational at Rutland Country Club.

Hathorn was neck-and-neck with Raiders star Logan Broyles for most of the round; the Rutland ace made a pair of birdies late in the round to win the medal with a 71. Jared Vanderpot added a 94 for the Canes, followed by Logan Raymond (97), Justin Jasmin and Billy Mann (100 each).

“This (366) is our lowest 18-hole score since probably 2010,” Hartford coach Mike Hathorn said. “I was hoping we’d break 380 this year, so to already get under 370 is pretty good.”

The VPA Division II sectionals will be at Rutland later this fall. Getting as many tournament reps as possible while learning the importance of staying below the pin on Rutland’s notoriously difficult greens should benefit the Canes going forward.

Team scores: Rutland 330, Hartford 366, Burr & Burton 368, Mount Anthony 424.
