The Louisville Leopards Boys Golf team opened up the season with a fifth man tie-breaking victory over the West Branch Warriors Thursday at Skyland Pines.
Louisville and West Branch each shot 174 as a team before the match went into the “overtime” of high school golf. Both Dan Duplain and Nick Fawver shot a 46 for the fourth and fifth best scores for the Leopards. West Branch’s fifth man shot a 49 and that gave Louisville a three-stroke edge and the match.
The Leopards were led by Domenic Lacernza who shot a 41. Matt Eddins also shot a 43 and Hunter Williams finished with a score of 44.
The win snaps Louisville’s three match losing streak against West Branch and the Leopards have now taken 5 out of the last 7 against the Warriors at home.
