The Fairfield Ludlowe boys golf team entered its match with archrival Warde on Wednesday looking to salvage something of its 2010 season.

The Falcons did just that, shooting their low round of the year en route to their sixth win of the season in a 164-166 win over the Mustangs on Wednesday afternoon at H. Smith Richardson Golf Course in Fairfield.

"We played our best round of the year," Ludlowe Head Coach Sean Patrick said. "I guess it all came together at the right time."

The Mustangs fell to 8-10 on the year and lost their the third match by four strokes or less. Warde was led by top-players Mike Smaldone and Tim Veit who each shot 41s.

However, the Falcons had two players shoot below 40, including Cole Church who shot a season-low, 39. Falcons' third player Ryan Osborne shot a career low 42 and top-player Rex Craft was the low scorer of the match, shooting 38. Ludlowe's No. 4 player Andrew DeCarlo shot a 45.

"This is the first time all year that we've had two kids shoot under 40 in the same round," Patrick said. "We never had it work out."

Patrick was excited that his top player got some help from his teammates in the team's final match of the year.

"Cole has been consistent all year," he said. "And he got some support today."

The Mustangs third and fourth players, Matt Hamilton and Jack Zierolf each shot 42 as the Mustangs shot their third lowest round of the year in the loss. Warde Head Coach Bob Bigonette was unable to be reached before press time.

DeCarlo and Craft competed at the Chappa Invitational yesterday in Westport. Church will be the Falcons' representative at the Holahan Invitational on Tuesday at Wee Burn Golf Course in Darien.
