DuBOIS — Visiting Brookville had two golfers break 50 Monday at Treasure lake’s Silver Course, but DuBois Central Catholic proved to have a deeper lineup on the Cardinals pulled out a slim 201-202 victory in boys golf action.
Central Catholic’s Austen Cogley and Brookville’s Levi Roseman each carded 46s to tie for medalist honors on the day, while Raider Zelke Bugay finished right behind them with a 47.
The cardinals were able to overcoem those two low scores by Brookville, though, as they got strong rounds from their No. 5 and 6 golfers — Noah Pettenati and Kadin Danch — to come away with the one shot win.
Pettenati shot a 50, while Danch had a 52 to back Cogley’s 46. Tyler McIntosh and Max Forcey each added 53s, with McIntosh’s score counting for the team score since he played higher in the lineup.
Behind Roseman and Bugay, Brookville got a 54 from Dane Lyle and a 55 by Aaron Briggs.
Central Catholic returns to action Wednesday at DuBois, while Brookville hosts Ridgway today.

DuBois (2-1) hosts DuBois Central Catholic on Wednesday.
Elk County Catholic 210,
At St. Marys, Elk County Catholic had six of its eight golfers break 50 en route to a lopsided 210-263 win over Kane at Leaning Pines Golf Course.
Crusader Ryan Newton captured medalist honors with a 40, with teammates Brady Schneider and Nick Daghir right on his heels with rounds of 41 and 42 respectively.
With the Top 5 scores counting towards the team score on the day, ECC (2-0) also got strong rounds from Gabe Kraus (43) and Jonah Meyer (44) to post its team score of 210.
Christo Park shot a 47 to lead Kane, while teammate Alex Rezelle had a 49.
“We had a much better score today, but you would expect that when you play on your home course,” said ECC coach Aaron Straub. “A 200 has always been the bench mark for a good target team score, and out 210 tonight is getting close to that score.
“The only way you can do that is to have two or three scores in he 30s, and we have only had three off 66 9-hole rounds in the 30s. I am hoping to change that, and Wednesday’s match would be a good place to start.”
And, that match Wednesday is back at Leaning Pines against county foe Ridgway in a meeting of two of the top teams in District 9 Class AA.
