BRAZIL — Terre Haute North won its second boys high school golf match of the week Thursday, defeating Northview 149-161 at Forest Park.

The Patriots are 3-0 in nine-hole matches and had a score below 150 for the second time this week with five players shooting in the 30s.

Junior Adam LaGrange led the Patriots with 1-below-par 34. “I had two birdies and a bogey,” he said.

Andrew Behnke had a birdie and carded 37, while Evan Perdiew, Dante Bagnoche and Ryan Baker all had 39.

Seth Payton led the Knights, now 3-2, with 38 and Dylan Nesty shot 40.

North coach Abe Nasser Jr. was pleased with the scores posted in the match in chilly, windy conditions.

“Adam played very well. I am happy … the course played tougher than we expected with the wind and cold,” he said.

The Patriots and Terre Haute South will vie for Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference honors Saturday at Hulman Links. Tee times begin at 10 a.m.

Carmel is the defending champ and is ranked fifth in this week’s poll. North and South both received votes to gain honorable mention.

“It’s always about beating Carmel. We’ll see what happens,” said Nasser.

“We’ll have to bring our A game,” said LaGrange.

Northview will be in action again Monday, meeting Linton and South at Forest Park.
