Playing on a course with flooded fairways and puzzling greens, the freshmen golfers dropped their first match, losing to Andover 3 1/2-2 1/2 yesterday.

Skip Kistner, who played in the number one position, described the Andover Country Club as, "very wet and soggy. The fairway on the first hole, for instance, had so much water that I lost my ball in it and had to take a penalty shot. The greens were lightning quick or very slow. You just had to guess on them."

Even though he parred the last five holes, Kistner had to go to the 18th before he won his match, two up. Tom Ellis, who was two down with four to go, took the next four holes to win two up.

Quincy Shaw, who played behind Ellis in the number four position, needed a bogey on the last hole to win his match one up. He double-bogeyed and had to settle for a tie.

Terry Wynne, Bob Gannett and John Day had lost their matches by the 16th hole. Jeff Cass, the seventh man, made the trip to Andover but became sick along the way and was unable to play.
