YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y.— Yorktown golf coach Skip Marini knew it would take a big day for his young Husker team to match up against a veteran Somers squad when the two teams squared off last Thursday, May 5 at Mohansic Golf Course.

Unfortunately, it was Somers that turned in a big day as the Tuskers put up an impressive team score of 195, led by senior star Christian Cavaliere as he finished three under par with a 32.

“I thought the Somers team was outstanding in their performance, etiquette and class,” Marini said.  “This is a team that I have known about from last year how good they were and with the addition of a few young players they are really a team to be reckoned with. I informed my team a few weeks back that we needed to shoot in the low 200s but I never thought they would come to our home course and throw up a 195.”

In addition to Cavaliere, the Tuskers had five of the top seven scores on the day to pull away for the victory. Jon Henning was second behind Cavaliere with a 37, while teammate Nathan Han was third at 39 for the Tuskers.

Conor Frawley was the top finisher for Yorktown as he was tied for fourth with Tusker Joe Danko as they both shot a 41. Husker Matt Gorstein was right behind in fifth with a 42.

Nick Fierro of Somers was sixth with a 46. Three players were tied for the next spot as Huskers Kevin Glynn and Matt D’Orio, along with Tusker R.J. LaSpina each shot a 48. Yorktown’s Cameron Cuparo was next with a 51, while Husker Ryan Ferrara rounded out the team scoring with a 53.

“Cavaliere had an exceptional round and I was very proud of my number one Conor Frawley, a senior captain, who had a valiant effort to try to keep the pressure on him,” said Marini, who is the Assistant Golf Professional at Mohansic. “Matthew Gorstein, another senior captain, also had a nice round of 42 and I was missing my other big gun in senior captain Aidan D’Alessandro. All three captains have a chance at qualifying for sectionals. It has been a pleasure to have them on the team for the past four years. They all came up through my Junior Program at Mohansic and it has been extremely gratifying to watch them grow and develop.  They will be missed but I am also excited about my three young freshmen Kevin Glynn, Matthew D’Orio and Ryan Ferrara, who will be with me for the next three years.”

With the loss Yorktown fell to 5-3 overall on the year, while the Tuskers improved to 10-2.
