C-NS tops Liverpool, wins wrestling Akley Duals

Northstars rally late to avenge Dec. 4 defeat to Warriors

Liverpool rebounded with Sean Nadeau, at 99, pinning Sorenson with seven seconds left, but Jerry Nash (106 pounds) was injured in the waning seconds of his match, giving Joe Barber a default.

In between forfeits to Audey Ashkar (113 pounds) and Anthony Ianno (126 pounds), the Warriors’ Peter Nash blanked 120-pound opponent Joe Mayers 6-0, and Mike Mills (132 pounds) would make it four Liverpool wins in a row when he pinned Brandon Burnham in 3:51.

Down 33-9, C-NS had to get a victory from Copani – and got it when he pinned Zach Curcie in just 59 seconds. But the forfeit to Will Ronan (145 pounds) left the Northstars in a position where it had to sweep the remaining four bouts.

Anthony Carella, at 152 pounds, started the C-NS comeback, pinning Anthony Richardson in 1:05, and it got a further boost when Darren Breen, in his match against Norton at 160, got disqualified, and Ruiz kept the Northstars hot with a 35-second pin over Jalen Barron.

So it all came down to Peterson against Liverpool’s Louis Ragonese. Wasting little time, Peterson put Ragonese’s shoulders on the mat, and in just 40 seconds, the fall was recorded, giving C-NS the winning points.

C-NS would take the momentum from this win into Wednesday’s meet at Central Square before a Saturday appearance in the Cazenovia Invitational. Meanwhile, Liverpool is off until Jan. 15, when it goes to West Genesee, and it will appear in Baldwinsville’s dual meet three days later.
