Corydon Central tripped up Austin and Eastern last Thursday afternoon at Old Capital Golf Club here, winning by 20 strokes.
The Panthers fired a 159, with Austin coming in at 179 and Eastern third with a 156.
Leading the charge for the home club was medalist Dustin Thomas, who shot a 38 on the afternoon.
Alex Zimmerman and Matt Key each had 39s while Chris Becker and Bruce Toler marked 43s.
Earlier last week, Corydon dusted Providence at Old Capital, 152-179.
Thomas shot a 36, Zimmerman a 37, Toler a 39 and John Enlow a 40.
At the Ron Veleta Invitational at Wooded View Golf Course on Saturday, Corydon fought off blustery conditions to finish in sixth place.
Zimmerman had an 82, Toler marked an 88, Thomas shot a 91, Becker had a 97 and Key a 97.
‘My take on this team at this time is that we are better than last year, definitely a little more consistent,’ Corydon coach Jack Miles said. ‘Alex is playing better and Dustin has improved a lot over last year’s scores. But we need some others to raise the level of their game to be really competitive with the good teams like North Harrison, plus Alex and Dustin having a good day.’
Also at the Invitational, North Harrison ‘ a team with a current mark of 29-3 ‘ wound up in third place with a team total of 338.
Floyd Central won the event with a 319 and New Albany was runner-up with a 335.
Kyle Mattingly shot an 80, Ben Fouts had an 82, Zach Davis an 84 and Bryan Stephens a 92.
In a match on Monday at Country Oaks, North Harrison (160) defeated Washington (180), Barr-Reeve (191) and Bloomfield (203).
Cole Duffy came through with a 38, Ben Fouts carded a 39, Bryan Stephens had a 41 and Michael Rigot shot a 42 for the winners.
Miles said his team has the ability to compete with the elite squads in the area, but the margin for error is slim.
‘I think our ability to play with North Harrison will likely depend on how our third, fourth, and fifth men match up. It seems that any of North Harrison’s players are capable of shooting a very low score, while we generally have only two people who can do that,’ Miles said.
Corydon returns to the links tomorrow (Thursday) at home at 5:30 p.m. against Shawe, Scottsburg and Salem.
North is off until May 2.
