Panthers jump out to big lead, roll past Grapepickers

SAEGERTOWN — Saegertown jumped out to a 54-0 lead through the first nine matches before rolling to a 69-9 win over North East in Region 3 wrestling action on Wednesday.

The Panthers (7-1, 6-1 Region 3) opened with four pins, an injury default and four forfeit wins to amass their large lead. In total, Saegertown picked up max points in 11 of the 14 weights.

Pins were recorded by Jarrott Ruhl (113), Tyler Vath (132), Nick Monico (138), Lance Neuscheler (152) and Garrett Zuver (160). Matt Humes won his 145-pound bout by injury default.

Jeffrey Kraemer picked up a pin at 285 for the Grapepickers.

Lancers slay Dragons

EDINBORO — General McLane lost just three contested bouts on its way to a 57-11 win over Warren during a Region 4 wrestling showdown on Wednesday.

The Lancers picked up bonus points in eight of the 14 weights — four of them forfeit wins. McLane also picked up pins from Joe Wheeling (113), Mike Sutton (152) and Chris Laird (195), while also getting a technical fall at 138 from Keller Watkins.

D.J. Fehlman posted a technical fall at 132 to lead the Dragons.

Corry downs Union City

Union City picked up two wins in contested bouts. At 138, Dustin Tomcho pinned Josh Silka in 3:17. And at heavyweight, Storm McDonald heaved Paul Peters onto his back for a fall in 1:22.

Cardinals clip Devils

SHARPSVILLE — Cochranton only won one of the six contested bouts, but thanks to six forfeit victories the dual match went to the Cardinals 45-30 over non-region opponent Sharpsville on Wednesday.

The lone victory for Cochranton against a Sharpsville opponent went to Jared Morrison, who scored a 6-1 decision over Austin Szugye, 6-1.

Saegertown has been led the past couple matches by Michael Costello, who rolled a 234 on Saturday and Ricky Kanline who scored a 222 on Tuesday. Nick Archacki added a couple high games with a 208 at Lost Lanes and a 213 at Seneca.

Poll

The latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
