In the first full week of 2011, the Baldwinsville wrestling team stayed on course for a showdown with Cicero-North Syracuse that might decide the CNY Counties League National division regular-season title.
The Bees paid a visit to Central Square Wednesday night and, by dominating the lower weight classes, put together a 46-31 victory over the Red Hawks.
Every match from 96 to 125 pounds was contested - and all went to B'ville, amounting to 24 points, more than half the winning total.
It included Tim Sposato, at 103 pounds, pinning Ben Mayers in 1:11 and Chad McArdell (112 pounds) following up with a pin over Lucas Spiker 38 seconds into the second period. Connor Ross, at 125 pounds, finished off Brandon Engebresten in 3:02.
Elsewhere, Kevin Paul won a tough 96-pound match over Blake Engebresten 10-5, and Joey Shaheen (119 pounds) held on to beat James Williams 6-3.
Also proving impressive, Joe Nasoni, at 171 pounds, pinned Garrett Claffey in 1:26, while Pat Nasoni (215 pounds) took 1:58 to pin Josh Vredenburg. Brian Honsinger won at 189 pounds as Antonio Peck dominated his 152-pound match with Avery Sigle, winning a 16-6 decision.
