Muskies fall in quarters
Saegertown’s path to third place started with a 63-13 victory over an ailing, Jamestown squad.
“The timing was bad,” said Jamestown head coach Steve Pfaff. “But Saegertown has got a great team. To go against them, we had to be up to 100 percent to try to compete.
“And we had a couple kids go the other way that we thought would win but they got caught. I would have liked to see it been a closer match. But it is what it is. Now we’ve got to get ready for sections.”
Scoring wins for the Muskies was Nick Floch at 132, Jason Shappee at 220 and Keamus Schuhlen at 285.
Tigers tamed by LeBoeuf
Maplewood also bowed out in the quarterfinals, falling to eventual runner-up Fort LeBoeuf 66-3.
Jake Parsons notched the only victory for the Tigers, winning the last bout of the match with a 2-0 victory over Jack Middleton at 170.
“It’s Fort LeBoeuf,” said Maplewood head coach Matt Wilcox. “We knew we were the underdogs, certainly. We didn’t get shut out. We wrestled hard. That’s all I can say. They know what they need to work on.”
And that is?
“They’ve got to realize, now, these guys need to wrestle in the summer. Fort LeBoeuf, Saegertown, Reynolds, Greenville; they all summer wrestle. Maplewood, we don’t. There have been plans the last few years. They’ve just got to give me a commitment to come do it.”
