’Dogs finish strong, tie Cards for third in Mercer

MERCER — Tying the tournament high with three champions, Meadville moved from sixth place into a tie for third with Cochranton at the Mercer VFW Wrestling Tournament on Saturday.

Jamestown, led by a pair of champions, won the team title with 198 points. Host squad Mercer (169) was second, with Meadville and Cochranton posting 146 points. Grove City, the other team to boast three champs, was fifth with 144.5 points. Cambridge Springs also competed and placed sixth (138.5) thanks to a pair of gold medals.

The Muskies tied host Merecer for most place-winners with 10, and had the most grapplers in the finals with five. Hunter Goodlin got his team off to a good start by winning the 106 pound title by fall (2:43) over Commodore Perry’s Austin Armagost. Farris Messai pinned Mercer’s Ben Shaffer in 1:40 to win the 120 pound title. Jake Reaugh (138), Devin Randall (145) and Jason Shappee (220) dropped their final bouts to place second. Mohamed Messia (3rd, 182); William Shappee (4th, 195); Trenton Wargo (4th, 285); Garrett Morgan (6th, 160); and Nathan Blattner (6th, 170) were the Muskies’ other placewinners.

Meadville won three of its four championship bouts. Aaron Erghott collected a 5-2 decision over Westmont-Hilltop’s Logan Blackburn to win the 113-pound title. Two bouts later Kyle Luben collected a pin over Cochranton’s Nate Kline in 3:29 for the ’Dogs’ second crown. Luke Carr capped the performace with a 1-0 decision over Jason Shappee to win the 220 pound title.

Louis Crawford suffered an 11-0 loss at 170 pounds to Franklin’s Dakota Geer, who won the Tool City Tournament two weeks ago. Meadville’s other placewinners were Kris Nottingham (3rd, 138) and Brock Ridgeway (4th, 132). Nottingham lost his first match of the tournament before winning four straight in the consolations to place third. Cameron DeMaison (5th, 160) and Dakota Turk (6th, 182) also placed for the ’Dogs.

For Cochranton, Robert Boozer was the only grappler to reach the top of the podium thanks to a 9-0 decision over Grove City’s Chet Simoni at 152 pounds. The Cards had eight other placewinners, including a pair of silvers from Kline (126) and Jared Morrison (132). Devan Davis was third at 106, while Jake Yarnell was fourth at 145. Dylan O’Donnell (138), Lane Hall (220) and Evan Miller (285) each placed fifth, while Shane Reiser (120) took sixth.

Cambridge Springs was led by titles from Colton Noble and Zach Stafford. Noble capped a 3-0 tournament with a 21-9 major decision over Slippery Rock’s Dalton Hilliard at 160 pounds. Stafford won the 195-pound laurels with a 7-4 decision over Mercer’s Jon Hennegan. The Blue Devils also had a pair of thirds from Devin Simpson (170) and Blaine Wolfrom (285); two fourth-place finishes from Zach Walker (113) and Ryan East (220); and a fifth place showing from Zach Krein (152).
