MASON, W.Va. — In baseball, it has been said that a hitting spree or a hitting slump can, at times, be contagious.
Considering the final results of the Wahama White Falcon versus their counterparts from Buffalo, the same may now be said about golf.
These two teams squared off against one another Tuesday afternoon in a play six, count four format at the Riverside Golf Course.
It was a beautiful day to play. The sun was shinning, the temperature was pleasant and the humidity from the past week had disappeared. The golf course was green and lush and in excellent condition. In other words, it was almost a perfect day to be on the golf course.
However, the host team failed to play near their potential shooting a team total of 202 losing by 21 strokes to the visitors. Buffalo’s final four-man tally was a 181.
Senior Cory Hoshor, considered to be one of the top high school players in West Virginia, led his team with a score of 39. That score included a triple bogey six on the ninth hole, but still earned Cory the medalist honor by three strokes.
Nic Gunter gave Cory amble support shooting a 42. Bradley Harris added a 48 while Anthony Blankenship’s 52 was the final score in Buffalo’s team total. Both Blaik Caplinger and Nicholas Whittington turned in a score of 54 with neither score included in the final tally.
Michael MacKnight managed a 47 for his nine holes to lead the White Falcons. Nathan Redman, battling a nose bleed the entire round, hung in there and finished with a 50 for his efforts.
Michael Hendricks added a 52 while both Mason Hicks and Benjamin Foreman shot 53 with only one of those scores being included in the team total. Nolan Pierce also play for the Wahama team with his score not included in the final tally.
The White Falcons overall season record now stands at 24-12.
