WG wrestlers visit Cornell, take loss to Liverpool

Marcellus, led by Hood, takes fifth at OHSL meet

Dan Tierney (138) pinned Chittenango’s Jake Wilmer in 1:36 for a third-place finish as John Dunn (195) claimed fourth place. Nick Destefano beat Kyle Cooper (Hannibal) 17-4 for fifth place at 120, with Nate Long (132) doing the same, topping Phoenix’s Kyle Demo 7-2 to finish fifth as Isaiah Mann (285) edged Robert Gage (Hannibal) 4-2 to also get fifth place.

Before going to the league meet, Marcellus faced Fabius-Pompey last Wednesday night and, aided by a trio of timely pins, picked up a 50-27 victory over the Falcons.

The Mustangs earned its first 18 points without a fight as Dunn, Cavaretta and Mann all claimed forfeits. Hood did wrestle, but not for long as he pinned Nicholas DeJosia in 36 seconds before Ruggles got a 16-0 technical fall over Andrew Hawley.

As F-P tried to climb back into the meet, the Mustangs stopped them. Long claimed another forfeit, while Tierney took 3:14 to pin Cameron Stewart. Zach Caza claimed the toughest match, a 4-0 decision over Alex Curr at 145, and Morrissey pinned Brian Cuipylo with 15 seconds remaining.

On Saturday, Marcellus will go to Vernon-Verona-Sherrill for the Section III Class B championship meet, while West Genesee enters the Class AA meet at Cicero-North Syracuse, each side looking to advance competitors to the overall sectional meet Feb. 9 at SRC Arena.
