The Mascenic golf team is back to its winning ways this season, remaining unbeaten through three matches after Thursday’s victory at the Shattuck. 

Despite graduating a slew of seniors, the Vikings are right back in the hunt this fall, with the Lisio brothers, George and Joe, in front of the pack. Joe Lisio was medalist at Thursday’s home match against Hillsboro-Deering and Sunapee, scoring 26 of Mascenic’s 64 points – enough to have beaten the Lakers (24) and Hillcats (23) by himself with his one-over performance. George Lisio and Ryan Goodrich weren’t far behind, and the Vikings cruised to the victory.

Mascenic doesn’t have much room for error this season. With a six-man team, something as simple as a turned ankle or a driver’s ed class can leave the Vikings with no more than their scoring four, and coach Jeff Hakala hasn’t forgotten the illness that swept through his team at the end of last season. He hasn’t forgotten how that season came to a close, either, losing in the Division IV finals to Hopkinton after going the entire regular season without a loss.

“I would rather have lost one earlier in the season, and flopped it with [the championship],” Hakala said Thursday. 

Now, the Vikings are right where they were last season, undefeated, after winning matches at Hopkinton and Sunapee and then Thursday’s sweep at the Shattuck.

Mascenic is on the road for the rest of September; they travel to Newport Monday and Hopkinton Thursday.

ConVal

On Wednesday, ConVal bounced back from its worst score of the season to post its best score to date in the closest match of the season at Bishop Brady.

ConVal had 45 points but lost a tie-break to John Stark by two points to finish fourth behind Bishop Brady, Prospect Mountain and Stark.

Brady Proctor led ConVal once again with 13 points, followed with season highs by Nick Tower (11) Riley Momenee (11) and Logan Burnham (10).

ConVal is at Gilford Monday and at undefeated No. 1 Derryfield Wednesday.

Conant

Hayden Ketola and Jeno Saari tied for third overall with 19 points each on Thursday as the Conant golf team went 2-1 and finished second at Campbell.

Pelham won the day with 85 points; Conant scored 55, Campbell 40 and Monadnock 29.

The Orioles are at Monadnock Monday and home at the Shattuck Wednesday against Belmont, Kearsarge and Sanborn.
