"It was a good match," said Dave Wise, coach of the Field boys golf team.
Kent Roosevelt walked onto the fairways of Sunny Hill Golf Club in Brimfield, home of the Falcons, with an undefeated record and left at the end of Thursday's contest still undefeated and at the top of the Metro Division.
Meanwhile, the Falcons saw a glimmer of hope as they prepare for the PTC Metro Division tourney as they stayed close to the Rough Riders.
The final score: Kent Roosevelt 154, Field 161.
The two top scorers for both teams tied at the top of the match for medalist honors.
Both Mike Kenney of Kent, defending Player of the Year in the PTC Metro, and Field senior Brady Adelman carded even-par rounds of 35.
A.J. Stronz of Kent and Jake Curtis of Field were within one stroke of each other, with Curtiss inching out Stronz by one stroke in the second spot 41 to 42.
Kent and Field continued to trade scores, with the deciding golfer Nick Mandalari of Kent, who finished in the final pairing with the best score following Kenney and Adelman, a 1-over-par 36.
The final tally sent Kent's unblemished record of 13-0 overall and 11-0 in the PTC Metro.
The Rough Riders have one match remaining, against Ravenna on Monday at Oak Knolls Golf Course.
Field concludes their regular PTC Metro Division competition with an 11-4 record and in a current tie for third place with Norton.
Ravenna is in second place with three losses just behind Kent Roosevelt.
It is a tight race in the Metro, but Kent Roosevelt has walked through the league this season with an unbeaten record as the defending champion of the league.
The Rough Riders are looking forward to defending their title at Sable Creek Golf Club in Hartville on Wednesday.
