Four Tigers shoot under 40 in 145-171 win at Pine Oaks Tuesday afternoon.
There was a sense of urgency with the Oliver Ames golf team in its 145-171 victory over Foxborough Tuesday afternoon at Pine Oaks Golf Course. The Tigers, who improved to 4-6 in 2011, haven’t had the consistency they had hoped for in the early going, and as a result, they find themselves in a hole having to win three of their next four matches to qualify for the state tournament. But Tuesday’s performance might give them the momentum they need with all of their remaining matches at home. “This was a great round of golf by the kids,” head coach Leo Duggan said. “I just hope we can be consistent and play like that tomorrow [against Canton].” After Tuesday’s performance, Bobby O’Donnell, Sam Minsky, Kyle Mathieson and Nick Carter – who all …

Several teams face Sharon for second time this year, while football and cross-country face Foxborough this week.

Several teams will renew their rivalry with Sharon later this week, while cross-country closes out its Davenport slate and football prepares for its first divisional game of the season. …
