He recorded five birdies, three bogeys and ten pars to complete his round at 2-under par.

At 1-under par 71, Brian Ahern of Wampanoag stands alone in second place as the only other player to break par. Three players, Steve Wagner (CC of Farmington), Ronald Soccoli, Jr. (Black Hall Club), and former winner Dave Szewczul (Tunxis Plantation CC) recorded even par rounds of 72.
