Hurricane struggles but edges Indians by one stroke


HILLSBORO — Two players had 38s Monday in the boys golf match between Wilmington and Hillsboro here at the Elks Golf Course.

But after that, scoring was hard to come by as the other 10 players had 50 or higher.

Wilmington prevailed by one stroke, 193 to 194, in the non-league matchup.

“We did not play well,” WHS coach Phil Gilmore said. “We need some consistency and get some of our players confidence up. We have a couple of big matches coming up.”

Murphy and his Hillsboro counterpart — Gabe Mycroft — both had 38s.

Brayden Conley posted Wilmington’s next best score with a 50.
