J-E, Marcellus wrestlers both earn wins

Getting a big victory within the OHSL Liberty division, the Jordan-Elbridge wrestling team hosted Cazenovia Wednesday night and put together a 42-31 victory over the Mustangs.

What made the difference was the Eagles winning four consecutive matches, starting at 145 pounds, when Joe Mills beat Bob Louis through a disqualification.

In short order, Mitch Cooper (152 pounds) earned a 19-3 technical fall over Bart Korykowski, Eric Gross (160 pounds) pinned Anthony Randino late in the second period and Andy Chambers (171 pounds) took 2:20 to finish off Oliver Posewitz.

Trevor Pettitt (125 pounds) and Dakota Riggleman (215 pounds) took forfeits. In a fiercely competitive 112-pound match, Mitch Alpha beat Dale Petroff 9-3, with Joe Mills emerging at 135 pounds to shut out Mike Nourse 13-0.

A night earlier, Marcellus hosted Herkimer and, in this non-league meet, picked up a 53-21 victory over the Magicians.

Ryan Long, at 152, pinned Codi Johnston in 2:34 and Grady Ryan (160) finished off Joe Aiello in 49 seconds.

John Cavaretta had the toughest win, at 189, edging Terrance Oldfield 4-3 as Andrew Eberle (140) beat Spencer Hawes 11-4 and Zach Ruggles, at 96, earned a 16-0 technical fall over Ryan Zawtocki.

Otherwise, all the points came from forfeits as Mike Perry (103), Keith McIntosh (135), Matt Dempsey (145), Kyle Tierney (171) and David Brever (215) all won without having to take the mat.

Solvay's Aaron Benedict participated in CBA/Jamesville-DeWitt's 54-24 loss to Mexico, earning the victory at 140 with a forfeit. His teammate, J.T. Romagnoli, won a 2-0 decision over C.J. Loomis at 130.
