    One bad hole and Mackenzie Peyton’s goal of shooting in the 70s for a top-10 finish in the KHSAA state golf tournament was dashed.

    On the par-3 11th hole, Peyton shot a 9. But she regained her composure, and finished the round with an 81, which put her in 20th place.

    Despite the bad hole, she finished eight spots and eight strokes better than last year, when she shot a two-day total of 168.

    And this time, it wasn’t quite as close.

    The first game of the match was a nail-biter that Eminence won 26-24.

    The Warriors now stand at 5-1 on the season heading into district play.

    Offensively, the game started slowly for the Warriors despite good field position. After Daishon Moore recovered a Raider fumble on their opening series at the Raider 37-yard line, the Warriors were in business.
