Bobby Davenport won his third consecutive event Monday at Woodgate Pines and extended his lead within his age group on the Mohawk Valley Junior Golf Tour.

Monday’s win follows first-place finishes at Cedar Lake July 12 — Davenport’s 73 was four strokes better than the 77 shot by Armand Cadieux of New Hartford — and July 16 at Stonebridge where Davenport shot a 71 and finished seven strokes ahead of Rockwell.

Colin Criss of Old Forge shot 73 Monday and finished one stroke ahead of Deerfield’s Joel Jakubowicz in the boys’ 16-18 competition; Migliore and Alex Malta of New Hartford both shot 78s. Kalil, who had an 80 Monday and tied for fifth, dropping two points back in the season standings, won the Cedar Lake event and finished second behind Ian Campbell of Canastota at Stonebridge. Migliore was fourth at the Cedar Lake and Stonebridge stops after a season-opening win at Crestwood and a second-place finish at Valley View.
