Jamestown claimed its second Bay Rivers District win of the regular season Friday, blowing away the field at Cypress Creek Golf Club in Smithfield.

Matthew Shield of Jamestown took home medalist honors, carding a five-over 77 and pacing Jamestown to a 313 combined score.

New Kent took second place as a team with 334 strokes, while Smithfield finished third with 348.

Scores were up from season averages almost across the board. Jamestown’s four scorers — Shield, CJ Montero, William Bell and Triston Buckley — were able to navigate the course and shoot near their season averages.

Warhill’s Blake Sawyer tied his season-best round with an 11-over 83, while Grafton’s Brennen Strachan missed tying his season-best round, an 11-over 83 at Ford’s Colony, with a 13-over 85.

The final Bay Rivers District regular season match will be held Sept. 22 at The Hamptons Golf Club in Hampton.

Below are the individual and team scores from the match:
