The 30th annual Riverhead Invitational Drill took play Saturday afternoon, hosted by Riverhead’s own — the Ironmen.

The drill competition, which features events like the 3-man ladder and bucket brigade, had teams from across Suffolk County competing on a hot, sunny afternoon.

The West Sayville Flying Dutchman took home the title by scoring 30 total points to finish ahead of the second-place Islip Wolves. The Ironmen scored two points to finish in a tie for ninth. The Cutchogue Panthers were one spot ahead with four points.

The Ironmen’s top finish came in the motor pump event, where they finished fourth.
