Emanon Country Club
It’s a pretty easy name to spell, but if the person responsible for adding names to the championship boards at Emanon Country Club needs any help, there are plenty of places to double check the spelling.
That’s because Len Coleman etched his name to his 24th individual championship at Emanon over the weekend, adding the Senior Club Championship to his long list of accomplishments, which already include the Super Senior title earlier this season.
Coleman rallied with a closing 2-under-par 68 to capture his ninth senior title, slipping past runner-up Gene Chiavacci in Sunday’s final round.
Chiavacci led by a stroke after a 72 in Saturday’s play, and backed it up with a solid round of 71, but Coleman posted the weekend’s only sub-par round to add to his legacy, which also includes 14 men’s titles.
Coleman (141), Chiavacci (143), John Petrosky (145), Guy Fasciana (148) and Jim Joseph (161) will represent Emanon in the Senior Coal Scuttle on Aug. 27 at Huntsville Golf Club.
Flight results: First, Jim Joseph (151), Bill Yurkon (161), Jack Linskey (162), Rick Evans (162); Second, John O’Connor (162, match of cards), Mark Kolmansperger (162), Joe Vasil (165), Tom Rosencrance (165); Third, Dave Snell (166), Joe Graziano (168), Dan Podwika (171) and Mike Busch (175).
Also at Emanon, it was a week of sweeps in Industrial League play, with Ardee’s Foodrinkery leading the way and keeping its lead after taking all three points from Fiscus Law. Tim Anderson (37) and Mark Eyet (39) led Ardee’s, with Mike Fiscus Jr. (37) shooting a solid score in a losing effort.
Central Air Freight swept Selenski Insurance to move into second. Bob Chabak (37) and Walter Volinski (40) led C.A.F while Mike Chiampi (42) was low for Selenski’s.
O’Connor Plumbing and R.J. Burne also blanked their foes. Ted Matthews (35) and Sean Kerrigan (37) paced O’Connor’s while Ky Saitta (42) was low for Reliable Transportation. Dave Ketterick’s 37 led Burne’s win over Bryan’s Construction, which was paced by Dave Lewis (41).
The lone non-sweep was by Ashley Machine and Tool, which took 2½ points from Red Mill. Len Coleman (36) and Bill Yurkon (38) paced the win. Sean Carey (39) was low for the Mill.
Warren Rozelle and Mike Vassil overcame scorching heat and some tough pin positions to fire an even-par score of 60 to win the Senior Member-Guest championship by four shots.
Rozelle-Vassil outdistanced wily veteran Jerry Dougherty and Bob Graham, and Mark Seamans and Gary Broad, who both shot 64.
First flight: Barry Westington-Jim Harvie (67), Bill McDermott-Dave Torrisi (68), Bill Bender-Harry
Dowling (68); Second, Joe Manley-Dan Sullivan (71), Butch Schmaltz-Alan Silverman (72), Tom Wolff-Jeff Jones (73).
Chris and Corey Cuneo turned in a 1-under to capture the Father/Son Westington tournament by a three-stroke cushion. Mike and Colin Hopkins (62) were second, with Jerry and Patrick Dougherty (63) third.
Flight results: First, Bill Bender-Bill Bender Jr. (68), Ed and Gary Bugno (69), Jim and J.C. Davis (70); Second, Carmen Caputo-David Ross (77), Joe McGrath Sr.-Joe McGrath Jr. (78), John and Chris Pesota (80).
Joe Petrillo got his holiday week off to a bang when he aced the 200-yard second hole at Emanon Country Club on Wednesday using a 3-wood. Witnessing the shot was J.T. Gober.
The toughest par-3 on the course requires a good swing, and that’s what Matt Riggi put on his 6-iron to ace the fourth hole Saturday at Scranton Canoe Club while playing in the second annual Fruehan Open. His hole-in-one was witnessed by Pat Fruehan, Ben Mattrisch and Tomm Evans.
