KENLY—The North John-ston boys golf team took advantage of its home course last week as the Panthers won their second conference match of the season, held at Cardinal Country Club last Wednesday.

Justin Richardson led the way with an 88 and North Johnston’s top four scorers turned in an all-around solid day on the course to best SouthWest Edgecombe by two strokes.

The Panthers finished at 395; SouthWest had 397 and Nash Central came in third place with a team score of 402.

Despite not having their best day, the boys were able to come away with our second conference match win,” North Johnston coach Rodger Fisher said of the team’s performance.

Brice Godwin and Zack Ramirez both shot 102, Blaine Crocker posted a 103 and Richard Evans shot his best round in conference play of the season, finishing with a 119.

It’s the Panthers’ depth that has benefitted them the most with each of the top four golfers taking turns going low thus far in the early stages of the season.
