The Wapakoneta Redskins varsity boys golf team was unable to take advantage of its home course advantage as it suffered a two-stroke loss to the Elida Bulldogs in a Western Buckeye League dual match Monday at Wapakoneta Country Club.
Elida defeated the Redskins 175-177.
“When you play at home, you have to win at home to have a chance at the WBL title,” Wapak coach Ken Wayman said. “I tell the kids every stroke counts in a golf match. We can never assume we are out of a match. We have to always grind it out and play smart golf.
“Today, we gave away to many strokes on silly mental mistakes. We can’t have a bad hole and play the next hole just as bad or worse. If we do that, we will lose more than win a golf match.”
Wapak golfers turned in the top two individual scores. Caleb Acheson was medalist with a 39. And Drew Wayman shot a 40.
Bobby Crow turned in a 48 for Wapak, followed by Aaron Johnson and Marshall Gerlach, both at 50. Josh Apple carded a 54.
Elida’s Ian Handle scored a team-high 41.
It was the WBL opener for both teams.
