Just as Cazenovia was beating ITC, Chittenango, who faces the Lakers Jan. 3 at Buckley Gym, was busy taking charge against Skaneateles and emerging with a 59-21 victory over that other group of Lakers.
It was 24-0 before Skaneateles even got on the board. Jake Wilmer opened at 145 by pinning Adam Notarpole late in the second period before Tyler Lewis (152) pinned Lucas Sherman in 1:55. In 90 seconds, Correy Wilmer finished off Francis Lombardi as Antonio Cutrie got his pin over 170-pound opponent Russ Burkhardt in 3:07.
Justin Cox wrestled at 195, pinning Jacob Kipp 33 seconds into the third period. Cooper Young endured the closest match at 99, holding off Nevan Rourke 4-3.
Later in the meet, Connor Fredericks (113) got a pin over Max Collier in 3:32, preceding Wyatt Blanding’s 48-second pin of Dan O’Connell at 120. Will Young, at 132, won a tough 6-4 match over Andrew Newton and Matt Bixby (138) routed Mike Goetzmann in a 15-0 technical fall.
As the Bears rest during the holiday break, Cazenovia will wrestle next Thursday and Friday at Central Square during the Brett Dixon Memorial Duals.
