FARMINGTON — Coach Kevin Charleston's Belmont golf team had about the shortest preseason anyone could imagine.

The Raiders had just two days of official practices before the first match of the season, which took place on Thursday, Sept. 10, at Farmington Country Club. The match was hosted by Prospect Mountain, with Plymouth and Gilford also in attendance.

Plymouth was able to come away with the win, firing a 182 overall, with the host Timber Wolves in second place at 223 and the Raiders in third place at 234. Gilford had just three golfers so did not record an official team score.

This year, Division III has gone back to stroke scoring after a couple of years using the Stableford system. Golfers can record a maximum score of double-par on each hole.

The Raiders were led by Eamonn Kelley out of the top spot in the lineup, as he fired a 49.

Nick Pucci, playing out of the fifth spot in the lineup for the Raiders, finished with a score of 59 to place as the second Belmont scorer.

The final two scorers were Oliver Mahoney out of the second spot and Kyle Plaza out of the fourth spot, as both fired a 63 to round out the scoring for Belmont.

Miles Miller played in the third spot and fired a 64 to round out the field of Raiders.

Belmont was set to be back at Farmington after deadline on Wednesday and will be at Pheasant Ridge in Gilford for a 4 p.m. match on Wednesday, Sept. 23.
