GALION — The Galion Tigers boys golf team remains at .500 in the Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference after a three-way match Thursday with Jonathon Alder and River Valley at Sycamore Creek Golf Course.

Galion finished with a final score of 171, good enough to defeat the Vikings from River Valley, 171-181. Jonathon Alder was able to edge the Tigers though, scoring a 170 over the nine holes.

Sophomore Jack McElligott was atop the leaderboard for Lehman’s Tigers. McElligott finished with a 37, tying his lowest round as a high school golfer. Matt Kingseed shot well, finishing with a 44. Right behind Kingseed was Nick Kruger and Kaleb Harsh, both recording 45. Brevin Owens and Mitch Dyer shot 46 and 47m respectively.

“We had the opportunity to knock off the league leader and came up two shots short,” coach Bryce Lehman said. “Again, we were our own worse enemy. My six players didn’t finish off their rounds like we should have. We played the last two holes a combined 19 over par and lose by one.”
