Alek Mauro and Jillian Friyia followed up tour opening wins by beating the pack a second straight time. "Overall my round was good as I hit the ball very well off the tee" said Friyia, who normally plays on the Tyson Tour in London.
She made the trek down the 401 and posted a 2-over-par 73 at Essex Wednesday.
