The Falcons carded a team total of 371, while the Mariners entered the clubhouse with an aggregate score of 442.
The victory is the second of the fall for Albertus Magnus and the third in the program's young history. The Falcons also topped the Lions for the second straight autumn at their home course.
Albertus Magnus senior Aaron Macchia (Utica, N.Y.) earned low individual medalist honors with an 80, while junior Zach Schatz (East Haven, Conn.) continued his strong play with an 88 to finish in solo second.
AMC senior Tyler Donnan (Meriden, Conn.) landed in fourth-place with a 101 and classmate Tom Moore (East Haven, Conn.) rounded out the scorers for the Falcons with a 101 to enter the clubhouse in fifth-place.

The two-day, 36 hole event takes place at Gorham Country Club and the winner of the tournament receives the league's automatic qualifier for the NCAA Tournament in May of 2017.
