Only DiLisio, Hervol remain at Massachusetts Amateur
Steven DiLisio (David Colt/Mass Golf)
On Thursday at The Country Club, six second-round matches still had to be completed before the Massachusetts Amateur quarterfinals could begin. By day’s end, only Swampscott’s Steven DiLisio and Hopkinton’s Jimmy Hervol remain in the field and will face each other for the title on Friday. The championship match will be conducted at 36-holes.
Competing in his first career Massachusetts Amateur quarterfinal match, rising Duke University senior Steven DiLisio took down Brockton’s Matt Parziale, the former U.S. Mid-Amateur champion and 2018 U.S. Open low-amateur, 7 and 6, before taking down Walpole’s Jack Boulger, a soon-to-be-junior at the University of Connecticut in his semifinal match, 4 and 3, to punch his ticket to tomorrow’s 36-hole championship match.
On the opposite side of the match-play bracket, Jimmy Hervol tapped in a four-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to defeat Andover’s Brett Krekorian, 1 up. The 21-year old Hervol, the 2015 Massachusetts Junior Amateur champion, had previously defeated Alejandro Soto, 5 and 3, early Wednesday in the Round of 16 before his defeat of Nick McLaughlin, the 2015 Massachusetts Amateur champion, in the quarterfinal round.
