Author: Kate Kellar
June 28th 2017 - Goffstown, NH –   After some long, yet exciting matches in Day 2 of the Boys Junior Championship sponsored by Junior Golf Hub, the final match of the Championship Flight will be between Jack Brown and Tommy Ethier.  It will be a Nashua Country Club final as both golfers play out of there.
 
Two quarterfinal matches in the Championship Flight combined for 12 extra holes; lefties Jack Brown and Jake Raichle went to 23 holes and the Dylan Lortie/ Phin Choukas match went to 25 holes to determine the winner.  Brown and Choukas ultimately came out of those two matches to square off in the semifinals.  In that semifinal match, Brown defeated Choukas 3 & 2 to advance on to the final match of the Championship Flight.
 
Ethier, who beat Pleva prior to beginning the quarterfinal matches, took on Nick Grimbilas and defeated him on the 17th hole, 3 & 1.  Meanwhile Brennan Hughes took Nick Hampoian to the 18th hole, but Hampoian came out on top, 2 UP.  Ethier used his early morning momentum to propel him in a good match with Hampoian which ended in an Ethier victory on the 17th hole, 2 & 1. 
 
The First through Fifth Flights concluded their matches today with strong playing by all golfers.  In the First Flight, CJ LaDue defeated Justin Grondahl 2 & 1 to take the victory.  The Second Flight had Ryan Rothdiener against Ethan Emerson in what was one of the closest matches of the day; Rothdiener won 1 UP.  In the Third Flight, Ben Burdett beat Luke Ramsay 3 & 2.  Noah Leclair showed his strength in the Fourth Flight by defeating Nick Nadeau 4 & 3.  And in the Fifth Flight, Anthony Andronaco played a solid round and was able to oust Patrick Sullivan 6 & 5.
 
The 2017 Boys State Junior Championship sponsored by Junior Golf Hub, being held at Stonebridge Country Club, brings together the top junior players from around the State to compete in 18 hole stroke play qualifying to advance to match play round in their respective flights.
