Both candidates from Holliston faced off in a battle in which Dykema won, taking home 792 votes in Westborough, 3,169 in Southborough, 5,209 in Holliston and 4926 in Hopkinton.
Lamb won 500 votes in Westborough, 2,315 in Southborough, 2,771 in Holliston and 3296 in Hopkinton.

Lamb conceded the race to Dykema earlier tonight telling the Worcester Telegram that he was proud of the campaign that he ran.
"'I just want to thank all of my campaign volunteers from the bottom of my heart. We ran a good campaign and they were the best volunteers a candidate could wish for,' he told the Telegram.
