Senior captain Jack Goyetch carded two rounds under par and the Canton High golf team notched three more wins in a three-day span last week to remain unbeaten on the season at 8-0 overall.

Just past the halfway point of the fall campaign, the Bulldogs entered this week needing only one more victory to clinch at least a share of the Hockomock Davenport Division title. In the meantime, the team has already locked up a spot in the postseason and will be headed to the state tournament for an eighth consecutive year

In last week’s action, Canton recorded two dominant home wins at Blue Hill Country Club — 139-173 over Sharon and 141-161 over Attleboro — sandwiched around a close road win over Foxboro (173-181) at Foxboro Country Club. CHS head coach Mike Barucci said the Sharon win was particularly noteworthy as it is very rare that a team breaks 140 in a match.

“To shoot 139 is a great accomplishment for the team,” he said.

Goyetch was sensational in the victory over the Eagles as he parred the first eight holes and then birdied the ninth to finish with a career-best, one-under-par 33. He would then go on to set a new career low two days later against Attleboro, birdying holes 3, 4, 7 and 8 to finish with a two-under-par 32. He also earned match medalist honors against Foxboro (41) and was selected as the Player of the Week by HockomockSports.com.

While Goyetch was taking his golf game to new heights, several of his Bulldog teammates also turned in outstanding performances, including Joey Vaughan, who shot a one-under 33 against Attleboro with three birdies; Danny Powers, who shot even par (34) against Sharon; and Chris Lavoie, who continued his strong play with a career-low 35 against the Eagles and a 38 against the Bombardiers.

Other standout performers on the week included Thomas Singleton, who shot a pair of 38’s in the two home matches and 42 on a tough Foxboro course, and Niko Donovan, who finished among the top five against both Foxboro and Attleboro. Ryan Nolte and Mike Gobbi also had great rounds in the Attleboro match, both shooting 41.

This week, the Bulldogs were due to play two more home matches — Tuesday against Franklin and today against Stoughton — followed by an away match tomorrow at the Cape Club of Sharon. The team then continues its busy stretch next week with four more events, culminating with the league championships on Thursday, October 19.
