Eureka’s Talon Vigil turned in the most dominating performance of the season at the Redwood Golf and Country Club in Fortuna on Monday, stretching his lead in H-DNL boys golf.

The standout sophomore shot a 76 to pace the field bye nine strokes and he now leads the season standings by 18 with one round remaining, all but guaranteeing him the league championship.

The nine-stroke win was the biggest of the season and his round of 76 tied for the best round in league play this year, matching St. Bernard’s Jack Kramer’s round at Eureka three weeks ago.

More impressively, he did it rainy conditions.

Arcata’s Beck Pederson had the second best round of the day with an 85, followed by Kramer with an 87.

Arcata’s Mason Alway shot an 89, Del Norte’s Kai Russell a 90, and Fortuna’s Lucas Senestraro a 91.

The Eureka boys took the team win once again and stretched their lead in the season standings to 75 strokes, with Arcata second and Fortuna 62 strokes further back in third.

Mitchell Lyell led McKInleyville with a 92 on Monday, while Del Norte’s Blake Larson shot a 93 and Eureka’s Wyatt Zerlang and Jerome Lyons each shot a 94.

Kramer remains second in the season standings, with Alway third, Eureka’s Julian Goodman in fourth and Lyell fifth.

The H-DNL will close out the regular season at Eureka in three weeks.
