Albany -  There aren't any mulligans in an 18-hole golf tournament.

Deerfield-Windsor did get one after posting one of their worst rounds of the season.

The Knights beat Stratford in a one-hole playoff to win a second consecutive GISA AAA state golf tournament.

Deerfield-Windsor, which this season set the school record with a team score of 289,  made the turn at 12 over par.

The Knights finished at 308 with Ashton Pellicano leading the way with a 71.

Stratford also posted a 308 score and the two teams had to play the 18th hole to break the tie.

Deerfield-Windsor won the coin toss and the Knights played the 18th hole first.

Deerfield-Windsor got a birdie from Pellicano and three pars to post a one-under score.

It was the kind of pressure coach Gordy Gruhl wanted to put on Stratford who could not get a birdie from any of their five players in the playoff.

Augusta Prep finished third with a score of 312 and Cavaliers Lee Knox was the medalist with a score of 68.

Ashton Pellicano was the only Knight to earn all-state honors and Southland's Kathryn Fowler was the girls medalist with a score of 77.
