In a rematch of last year’s final, Gary BenDavid defeated defending champion Elmer Silva, 3 and 2, on a picture-perfect Saturday morning, to win the men’s club championship at Farm Neck.

The match of the day proved to be the men’s ‘A’ Flight final between Rick Marotta and Alan Schweikert. Marotta led most of the way, but Schweikert rallied in the latter stages and won the title, 2-up.

The men’s ‘B’ Flight championship went to Carl Lawrence, who downed Paul Garcia, 6 and 5.

In a bit of deja vu from 2011, Al Alexander once again defeated Steve Amaral in the Senior Flight final, this time by the count of 4 and 3.

Due to heavy morning rain, the final round of the women’s club championship was postponed from Tuesday until July 31.
