The Northview Knights boys' golf team came away victorious at the Forest Park Golf Course in a match against Clay City, 153-172.

The Knights' Larry Knight led the day with a total score of 33. One great hole for him was on hole two, where he birdied.

Second for Northview was Brad Smith, who scored a 36 on the day.

"I'm satisfied with tonight," Knights' head coach Scott Buell said. "Larry had a great round, two under par. He's been playing well. Brad played well tonight, I'm proud of that. Our 153 is the same thing we shot on Tuesday, so we've got some momentum going for us for conference on Saturday and that's what we're really focusing on right now"

Jacob Musgrave shot a 40, Drew Atkinson scored 44, Dylan Nesty scored 45, and Austen Bowen shot a 48.

Koby Rhodes led the Eels with a score of 39. Darius Farmer shot a 42, second on the team.

Third on the Eels' squad was Rhett Bigger with a score of 44. Colten Dyer shot a 47, Austin Sinders scored 48, Nathan Buell shot a 49, and Bailey Smith scored 53.

"We need to work on our short game," Strain said. "Work on putting. We had a lot of puts out there. So we'll be working on that."
