---- — GOLF
The wins came from the top of the Salem High golf lineup, but the bottom half also produced some important points yesterday against Revere.
The Witches got victories from their top four golfers — Kyle Doherty at No. 1 (6-3), Madison Ballou at No. 2 (5 1/2-3 1/2), Cam Fraser at No. 3 (5-4) and Cam Twomey at No. 4 (7-2). They also got critical points from Wes Schaejbe and John Ballou at the bottom of the order in a 39 1/2 to 32 1/2 win over the Patriots.
”It was a great start for us and we sustained it,” said Salem (3-7) coach Tommy Doyle. “The last two guys won the last hole each to tie their matches, and those were big points. We needed them, too.”
