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.

  • MLB replay Selig calls replay start ‘remarkable’

    Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says the sport’s new replay system is working well despite a few problems during its first two weeks.
    While baseball began video review late in the 2008 season, it was limited to potential home runs and boundary calls. The new system that began March 30 vastly expands the types of plays that managers and umpires can ask to be reviewed at a replay center in New York.

  • Watson pulls away at Augusta to win second green jacket

    One of golf’s most exciting players squeezed most of the drama out of the Masters on Sunday. That’s just fine with Bubba Watson.
    All he cared about was slipping into that green jacket.
    Instead of hitting a 40-yard hook out of a forest of Georgia pines — the signature shot in his playoff victory two years ago — the final act Sunday at Augusta National took place on the 18th green. Watson had a three-shot lead and consulted with his caddie on a 15-foot birdie putt.
