Black Knights win dual with Winfield

By Paul Boggs -

TORNADO, W. Va. — Brothers in clubs.

Bolstered by brothers Bryce and Dylan Tayengco, the Point Pleasant High School golf team captured a dual win with Winfield on Thursday, as the Black Knights notched a dozen-stroke victory at Big Bend Golf Course in Kanawha County.

It was the Generals’ home course, as the Black Knights competed in their second match of the season — following Tuesday’s triangular tilt against Ravenswood and Wahama.

Point Pleasant, paced by the brothers Tayengco, fired a team total of 136 —compared to the 148 for the Generals.

Both squads fielded four golfers on Thursday, which is the minimum number needed to post a team score, as senior Bryce Tayengco earned match medalist honors with a five-over-par 41.

Dylan Tayengco followed with a 44, as the leading Winfield score was a 45 from Chase Milbee.

The other two Black Knight cards were a 51 from Haley Pierson and a 57 from Colton Fridley.

Bryant Moore broke 50 for Winfield with a 49, while the other two General scores were a pair of 54s from Logan Lightner and Austin Arthur.

Point Pleasant is only fielding four golfers this season, and graduated its two senior captains from last year —Doug Workman and Matt Martin.

Bryce Tayengco qualified individually for last season’s Class AA state tournament.

Point Pleasant plays next against Meigs on Monday at Riverside Golf Course in Mason.
