FARMINGTON – Cool, wet conditions made things tough on golfers at Eagle Lake Golf Club on Friday as Central hosted West County and De Soto in a tri-match.
The three teams proved to be very evenly matched as only six strokes separated them. De Soto won the battle with a score of 192. West County closely followed with a team total of 194, and earned a conference win by topping Central’s score of 198.
Brandon Shannon of De Soto was the medalist of the match with a round of 43. That performance led directly to the Dragons’ separation from the pack.
