Poly’s Connor Young was the match’s medalist, with a 40.

The match was played on the back nine at Wild Quail Country Club, with a par score of 36.

On Tuesday, the Indians faced Smyrna and got back on the winning track with an impressive 179-206 decision over the Eagles.

Isabella Binko held the hot hand — well, um… foot (yeah — that’s it) — for the Indians during Saturday’s win over the Blue Raiders in Henlopen Conference action.

Binko scored four goals and assisted on another to lead the way for the Indians on April 28. Anastasia Diakos had a pair of goals to go along with an assist. Lauren Meehan booted home the other goal for IR.

Binko got things rolling for IR just five minutes into the contest, on an unassisted shot. She would follow that up less than two minutes later on a helper from Diakos. Isabella Keith served up a pass to Diakos at the 11:15 mark to make it 3-0 IR.

Diakos got the scoring going in the second half, on a helper from Meehan. Three minutes later, it was Binko again, with Grace Engel getting credit for the assist.

The fourth goal from Binko came at the 54:42 mark, on a pass from Tobi LoRusso, before Meehan closed out the scoring for IR at 70:45.

IR outshot their hosts 25-3 in the contest and had two corner kick opportunities.

Fabrea McCray needed to make just one save for the Indians.
