The Mules golf team played their version of a double header with back to back nine hole matches. In the first match the Mules posted 194 losing to North Beach 191 by three strokes and to Life Christian Academy by two strokes.

St. Onge tied for first place with a 43 having good control of his game in steady drizzle conditions on a sopping wet course. Except for Doiron's 49 the rest of the Mules failed to break 50. Johnston shot 50, Moon 52, Logan LaBerge 59 and veteran Good struggled to a front nine 63.

The next nine hole match seemed to shake every thing upside down. St. Onge posted 47 but everyone else improved their scores significantly which resulted in a win over LCA 191 and a draw with North Beach at 182.

Moon shot 43 to finish tied for third in the 14-man field while Johnston got fourth with a 44. Doiron shot 48 and LaBerge improved by six with a 53. Good shot 54 in the second match.

The Mules moved their intra conference record to 14-5-2. Next match is today (Thursday) at Skyline Golf Course for the last home match of the year.
