NEW CASTLE —
Lucas Villani, Darren Carone and Tyler Settle all shot a 40 to lift the Wildcats to a 203-223 Section 5, Division 2 win over Riverside at Connoquenessing Country Club. The win also secures at least a share of the section title for Shenango. A win over Union on Monday captures the title outright for the Wildcats.
It’s the first section title for Shenango since 2006.
Rocco Fiorilli was next with a 41 for Shenango (10-1, 11-2) and Matt DeAngelo added a 42.
“We’re pleased with the results,” Wildcats coach John Dado said. “Those were good scores for the conditions we were playing in.
“We let the kids know we couldn’t have a letdown. We lost to Riverside down there last year. It’s not an easy golf course to play. We want to go to the playoffs as outright section champions.”
Riverside is 7-4 in the section.
