NFL teams tee it up with title at stake

Niagara Gazette — staff reports

Every golf team in the Niagara Frontier League will close its regular season today at the NFL championship match at 9 a.m. at Willowbrook Country Club in Lockport.

The stroke play tournament pits six golfers from each of the eight NFL schools in 18-hole competition. The top five scores from each school are then added into a total score, which is then compared to that of other schools for placement.

The first place team earns wins over each of the other teams competing, and would therefore add 7-0 to its regular season record. The second place team would add 6-1, and so forth.

Kenmore East (13-1) can win the NFL title outright by finishing in first or second place, and a third-place finish would clinch the Bulldogs at least a share of the title. Lockport and Niagara-Wheatfield, both 11-3, need a first-place finish and the Bulldogs to finish third to earn a tie atop the standings.

The match is also a chance for the top golfers in the league to compete against each other in an 18-hole event. Favorites to win the individual NFL championship are Ken East’s Mike Davern and Ricky Shotwell, Grand Island’s Kevin Borowicz and Aaron Schauger, N-W’s John Liberti and Zach Dubuc, and Niagara Falls’ James Spanbauer.
