Tom Pratt became the first three-time winner of the Goosey Open on Sept. 1. Pratt captained a squad that included Nate Porembka, Rich Porembka and Mike Porembka at the sixth annual golf tournament at Glengarry Golf Course in Unity Township.

The foursome carded a 12-under-par 59. Nate Porembka and Mike Porembka were with Pratt on last year's winning team.

The proceeds from the tournament went to Adelphi Village and the Steve Breaston Foundation.
