Less than a week before Tuesday's Elgin Country Club Invitational, the Jacobs boys golf team played a good nine holes of golf only to lose by 4 strokes to Huntley.
The Golden Eagles got a little bit of revenge Tuesday as they dominated the 18-team field at the par-72 course, winning by 10 shots with a score of 312.

Burlington Central finished second at 322. Huntley was third at 327.
"They beat us on our home course (Randall Oaks) and the guys were really excited to get another opportunity to face off against Huntley," Jacobs coach Jeremy Bauer said. "To come out here on a neutral site and do that, it gives us a little more confidence."
St. Edward (331) was fourth, followed by Batavia and Geneva, which each shot 335.
Jacobs senior Chris Boyle earned medalist honors by shooting a 2-over 74. He tied Central's Matt Weber and won the first-place medal by virtue of his back-nine score of 38. Weber had a 40 on the back nine.
"It was a grind out there," said Boyle, who recovered after he bogeyed his first hole (No. 7). "I knew the scores were going to be decent, but it turned out pretty solid."
Weber, who was playing on his home course, was 3-under after his eagle on the 10th hole. But he double bogeyed 11 and 17 before a birdie on 18.
"I've been playing here forever and this is one of the highest rounds I've shot here in a while," said Weber, the Indiana recruit who for the first time this season did not win medalist honors at an invitational. "It wasn't very a delightful round of golf to say the least."
The Golden Eagles had three of the top six scores. Other than Boyle, Gabe Askam shot a 77 and Jack Ramsett had a 78. Justin Lenzini rounded out Jacobs' score with an 83.
For Central, Joe Sherman had a 79, Austin Niesel shot an 83 and Andrwe Sherman had an 86.
Trent Craig tied for fourth with a 77 to lead Huntley, which beat Jacobs 146-150 last Wednesday. Jake Grabner (81), Tyler Ross (82) and Riley Wicks (87) added scores for the Red Raiders.
Westminster Christian's Connor Rejman finished third individually, firing a 4-over 76.
"I didn't start out that great," Rejman said. "I birdied three of my last four holes for a solid finish."
St. Edward's Dan Winters and Hoffman Estates' David Rohlfing also broke 80, each shooting a 79.
