BRETTON WOODS, N.H. — The two co-medalists found themselves squaring off in Saturday afternoon's finale of the 112th New Hampshire Amateur Championship.

Joe Leavitt, the defending champion from Atkinson, and Connor Greenleaf, the Boston College sophomore from Windham, needed all 36 holes in the championship match as Greenleaf held his 1-up lead and halved the 18th hole for victory.

Leavitt, who will be a senior this fall at the University of Rhode Island, went 20 holes in the semifinals against TCU standout Chelso Barrett to reach the final match for the second straight year.

More to come in a full story from the New Hampshire Golf Association later this evening.
