Maybe the biggest layoff between Foothill League boys golf matches ever spelled a couple of interesting results on Wednesday at Robinson Ranch.

The Hart Indians have emerged as the biggest threat to the Wildcats’ Foothill League dynasty and the Wildcats have a young entrant in the league’s Most Valuable Player race.

Hart won the match with a team score of 403 to West Ranch’s 405 and Wildcats sophomore golfer Danny DiMaria was medalist with a 3-over 75.

All scores are adjusted to par-72 because Robinson Ranch’s Mountain Course is a par-71.

Valencia, led by Ronnie Bedrosian’s 76, finished third with a 417, followed by Saugus’ 435 (led by Braden Lewis’ 78), Golden Valley’s 438 (Jonathan Kang, 79) and Canyon’s 460 (Justin Noltemeyer, 88).

The difference for Hart was three golfers with sub-80 scores (Cory David, 76; Nick Negrosa, 78; and Michael Lotta, 79).

DiMaria was West Ranch’s only sub-80 score.

“We feel Hart’s a great team and a great contender,” DiMaria said. “We won’t rule out the other teams, though. But we’re going to focus on our own scores.”

West Ranch, the six-time defending Foothill League champions, won the league’s first match on April 1 at Valencia Country Club with a team score of 398.

DiMaria was the Wildcats’ best golfer that day, too, with a 4-over 76.

This time around, he and the league’s other golfers had to contend with dry, firm greens and tough pin placement.

DiMaria credited his consistent iron play on Wednesday for getting him close enough to the pins.

Hart finished second on April 1, with a team score of 407.

The Nos. 2 through 5 teams in that match were separated by 14 strokes.

This one is far from being decided.
