Van Wert 172 Defiance 172 (Bulldogs won on fifth man score)

DEFIANCE — In a close match throughout, Van Wert and Defiance finished tied 172-172 after the first four scores came in, but the Bulldogs won on the fifth man score, as David Jimenez posted a 46, while AJ Proffitt finished with a 49 at Auglaize Golf Course.

Van Wert’s Jace Fast was the match medalist with a 40 and teammate Keaton Foster was the runner-up with a 41. Blake Bohyer and TJ Stoller recorded scores of 45 and 46 respectively.

“The boy played well tonight,” Van Wert head coach Kim Doidge said. “They had never played this course before and they worked hard on course management. Some of the greens proved difficult for the boys to navigate. We learned a valuable lesson tonight that all shots and all scores matter”

The Cougars are scheduled to host Bath at Willow Bend on Thursday.
