The Loogootee Lions nipped the Bloomfield Cardinals by a mere two strokes 178-180 in a three-way golf match at Phil Harris Golf Course in Linton Tuesday.

Mitchell was a distant third at 218.

“Two strokes,” Bloomfield coach Scott Yoho said.

“And we had two boys that three-putted two greens at their home course. I just said, ‘That’s part of it guys.’”

Jaekob Ham and Christmas of Loogootee shared low medalist honors, each shooting 40.

Bloomfield had three golfers break 50, as did Loogootee.

Chris Gilmore fired a 44 for the Cardinals. Patrick Beard shot 47 and Turner Royal carded 49.

Loogootee’s Seals wan one back of Gilmore while the Lions’ Clark was one clear of Beard. Arvin matched Beard’s 47 for Loogootee’s fourth score.

For Mitchell Evers shot 49, Brewer posted 50, Rasja signed for 57, Furman had 62 and Slaten 63.

Bloomfield tees it up again Friday in another triangular match at Phil Harris, against White River Valley and North Knox.
