Trojan boys golf routs Pirates: Thursday sports roundup

MIAMISBURG — The Troy boys golf team picked up its second Miami Valley League Miami Division victory of the season Thursday, defeating West Carrollton in a crossover matchup 170-224 at Pipestone Golf Course.

Henry Johnston and Ryan Dowling were co-medalists for the Trojans (3-2, 2-0 MVL Miami), shooting 41s, while Tag Bender, Kellen Glover and Bryce Massingill each shot 44 and Owen Evilsizor shot 45.

“Ryan had a very steady round,” Troy coach Mark Evilsizor said. “Henry was 2-under his last three holes and finished really well, same with Kellen, who parred four of his last five holes. Tag started off real well, and it was a nice round for Bryce. Much better today. The kids played real well.

“It’s a good thing that we’re playing well in the MVL matches that truly matter for the conference title. Our best two scores have been those MVL matches, so these guys are showing up when they need to. We need to play better all the time, though. That’s our next step.”

After traveling to Greenville on Friday, Troy travels to Xenia on Tuesday.
