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 — Dealing with a pesky injury bug and the unexpected departure of two starters this week, the Union City wrestling team still put up a fight against visiting Region 3 opponent Corry on Wednesday. The Beavers still prevailed, however, 44-24.

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.

  • Steelers camp Steelers LB Spence caps lengthy comeback

    The whistle blew and Sean Spence sprinted forward, each cathartic step distancing the linebacker from the horrific knee injury that threatened to end his NFL career before it even really began.
    Spence almost gleefully smashed into fullback Bryce Davis during the Pittsburgh Steelers’ first full contact drill of training camp on Monday. The two tussled for several seconds before Davis — his fists full of Spence’s jersey — pulled them both to the ground.

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

I’m fine with it. If she cannot afford childcare, what choice does she have?
This is horrible and very bad parenting.
I’m torn. It’s not right what she did, but it sounds like the mother had few other options.
