ME3/A1  Peter Bronder (Noble) Lost dec 7-5 MA3 Matt Donohoe (Tyngsboro)

Smith looked great his 1st three matches, dominating his opponents.  Couldn't carry this momentum into the finals.  Jacob Berry lost a close decision to Garrett in the quarterfinals then fought back with 4 consecutive wins to take third.  Berry also placed (5th) at New Englands last year.  Bronder had a tough 1st match opponent in Donohoe.  Donohoe was ranked #1 in Massachusetts for a good part of the year.  Being a junior, Bronder should do well here next year.  It has been a great pleasure watching Smith and Berry's progress since their peewee days.  Both have been successful from the beginning and I'll definitely miss watching them next year.

ME1/A1  Steve Martin (Bonny Eagle) Lost md 10-2 CT3 Mike Bellagamba (New Milford)
