Cardinal wins at Harvey

In golf, sometimes the safest shot is the best shot.

That was the game plan for the Cardinal Huskies in Monday’s dual match against Harvey at Painesville Country Club. The Huskies focused on keeping their ball in play and came away with a 204-223 win over the Red Raiders.

“We definitely left there with a good feeling,” said Cardinal coach Greg McCandless. “It’s good to get the win. We kind of talked a little beforehand about playing the course a little bit conservatively. The back nine there is a little bit quirky, so we talked about that and for the most part they executed that pretty well. We didn’t hit many drivers. We just tried to keep it in play. That was the game plan.”

Danny Knippenberg carded a team-low 48, Joe Callison shot 51, Geno Argento finished with a 52 and Tyler Carroll ended the day with a 53.

Callison showed some consistency after finishing with a 47 in Cardinal’s last match against Geneva.

“He was pretty solid up there,” McCandless said. “That’s two good rounds in a row for him. He was kind of struggling at the beginning of the year. The last two matches he shot a 47 against Geneva and then backed that up with a 51. If we can get him into the high 40s that will go a long way in getting us competitive.”

The Huskies return to action on Thursday when they host Kirtland.
