CANTON, May 17 —  On its home course, Coventry beat NCCC contenders Avon and Canton in a three-day span last week. On Tuesday, May 11, the Patriots beat Avon by four strokes at Skungamung River Golf Club in Coventry, 152-156.

Two days later, the Patriots were even more impressive in a 147-159 win over Canton (6-2, 6-2 NCCC). Four Coventry players broke 40 with scores of 38, 34, 36 and 39. Mark Amoroso in the fifth spot led the Warriors with a 36 while Blayne Houlihan at No. 2 shot a 38. Brad Parliament shot a 41 while David Roux and Jon Phelps each had a 44.
