Freeport 229, Leechburg 285 — The Yellowjackets (4-0) improved to 2-0 in Division II, Section 1 with their win at Lenape Heights Golf Course. Freeport's Robbie Miller tied Leechburg's Matt Barto for the match low of 44.

Greg Newman, Luke Mariotti and Cole Hepler each finished one shot behind Miller for Freeport, and Tyler Swarmer had Leechburg's second-best score, a 49.

West Shamokin 212, Ford City 236 — Jason McCaslin shot a match-low, 2-over 38 for the Wolves (3-0, 2-0) in the Division II, Section 1 win. Dylan Kube (41), Anthony Rocco (42), Cory Egley (45) and Derek Fleming (46) rounded out the top five.
