Thursday, January 24, 2013 N/Warren Town and County News Page Eleven WRESTLING Concluded from p. 10 Piagentini, giving Nor- walk six more points. The next match ended in a major decision for John- ston against Jessie Cowie (145). The momentum Johnston seems to have going continues when Dragon wrestler, Sam Schade, secures a fall over Warrior wrestler Casey Rudolf (152). It does not get better for Norwalk when Dusten Saltz (160) lost a major decisioned match followed by Dakota Jackson of Johnston secur- ing a fall over N. Johnston (170). The team scores are now: Norwalk 10, John- ston 38. We have one more ma- jor decisioned match for the Dragons when Onstot (182) wrestled Jon Dolan from Johnston. Then a beautiful thing happens and Erich Voitel (195) manages to secure a fall over Johnston's Brad Nielsen. The final two matches, though, were all Johnston when Connor Jacobsen secured a fall over Norwalk's Trystan Minnis (220) and Tom Dusen also secured the fi- nal fall of the dual against Norwalk's Zach Swanson (285). Final team scores were Norwalk 16, John- ston 54. The third dual found the Warriors facing the North Polk Comets. It be- gan with DeFreece (113) losing a decisioned match against Austin Saul from North Polk. So North Polk makes their way onto the scoreboard first. It's a good thing because we win 12 points the next two matches when Onstot (120) and Z. Johnston (126) show up and take the for- feited rounds. North Polk answers right back when Geoff-Onstrander secures a fall over Warrior Debban (132). The scores are close right now with Norwalk 12, North Polk 9. I'm not exactly sure which Comet wrestler came next since there are two names listed at the 138 pound weight class. I can tell you whoever it Norwalk Warrior Wrestling Team at Marshalltown Dusten Saltz (160) was lost when Pierangeli (138) secured a fall over him. The Warriors only gained momentum them- selves this dual when they secured six more falls in a row. Those Warrior wres- tlers were Hunter England (145), Rudolf (152), Saltz (160), N. Johnston (170), Onstot (182) and Voitel (195). Impressive stuff! Ben Bruggeman (220), from North Polk secured the next fall for North Polk against Swanson. Follow- ing this we saw Jacob Torsky, also for North Polk secure one final fall for the Comets against Jake Kestel (285). The final match ended in a fall when Riordan (106), for the Warriors, wrestled Chase Erickson. The final scores for this dual were Norwalk 60, North Polk 21. Yay, Warriors! You know they have to be fairly exhausted by now. The 4th dual of the day, the Norwalk Warriors wrestled against East Marshall. Things started with Onstot (120) taking the mat with Zach Underhill. Underhill se- cures the first fall of the dual for East Marshall. Z. Johnston (126) then went on to win a major decis- ioned match for the War- riors against Max Upah. After Johnston's match, Debban (132), for the War- riors, lost as Talon Rose- land secures another fall for East Marshall, continue to ping pong when Pierangeli (138) goes on to secure the fall for the WarriorG bringing the team scores so far to Norwalk 10, East Mar- shall 12. Cowie (145) also se- cures a fall for the War- riors followed by Devin Yelik from East Marshall answering back by secur- ing a fall over Rudolf (152). More ping ponging hap- pens when Saltz (160) wins a decisioned match against Dalton Beadle from East Marshall. The ping ponging stops, though, when N. Johnston Pho ssubmit d. (170) comes Out next and secures a fall against Trevor Long. Johnston's pin pulled the Warriors a little further out in front, bringing the team scores to Norwalk 25, East Marshall 18. The next two wrestlers to meet up are Onstot (182) and Jay Reisetter. Reiset- ter did secure a fall over Onstot; however, Voitel (195) and Minnis (220) handled the next two matches by securing falls for the Warriors. Nate Judge secured the final fall of this dual for East Marshall against Zach Swanson (285). The last two matches were decis- ioned wins for Norwalk and East Marshall when Riordan (106) decisioned Seth Webb and Steve Proffitt, East Marshall, decisioned Fouts. The Warriors win this dual with a score of 40 to 33. The Norwalk Warriors now meet up with the Marshalltown Bobcats. We begin this dual with Z. Johnston (126) winning a major decisioned match. Marshalltown gets on next though when Kenneth Barham secures a fall over Debban (132). The next two matches are decis- ioned wins for Norwalk thanks to Pierangeli (138) and Cowie (145). The dual scores now stand at Norwalk 10, Marshall- town 6. England (152) lost the next decisioned match against Augustin Ortiz. Then we win a forfeited round at the 160 pound weight class, so Saltz gets a break. Derek Mann, Marshalltown, secures a fall over N. Johnston (170). The Warriors do answer back with Onstot who se- cures the fall over Marsh- alltown's Cody Mast (182). The next match is a sur- prising loss for the War- riors when Matt Vand- egrift secures a fall over Erich Voitel (195). We are back to playing some ping pong pinning because next we see Minnis (220) secure a fall for the Warriors and then Pedro Gomez secured afail over:our Kestel (285). Now the scores stand at Norwalk 28 and Marsh- alltown 27. This is too close for comfort. So the Warriors dig deep and send out Riordan (106) who secures a fall for us. Following this match, Fouts (113) wins a de- cisioned match against Fernando Martinez from Marshalltown. This was the match that put us far enough ahead to win the dual. I should mention the last match between our Onstot (120), was a de- cisioned win for the Bob- cats. StiU the dual was a vic- tory for our Warriors with a final score of Norwalk 37 and Marshalltown 30. Just when you think you have read enough wrestling news, I have more. The Warriors trav- eled to Ballard for a make- up meet January 8. The meet began strong for the Warriors when Riordan (106) secured a fall over Quentin Luke. The next two matches were pin victories for Ballard when Louie Howlett secured a fall over DeFreece (113) and Eathan Estabrooks se- cured a fall over Fouts (120). Then we get to watch Z. Johnston (126) pin Derek Wright and kick the Warriors team score up to 12, which is enough to tie the meet at this point. Ballard is the first to break the tie when Mitchell Broer pinned Debban (132). Things don't really get better the next two matches when Pier- angeli (138) lost a de- cisioned match against Dillon Hansen and then Cowie (145) also loses a major decisioned match against Mark Goldberg. I will add, these Warriors put up amazing battles. Next, Casey Rudolf (152) begins to turn things around for Norwalk when he secured a pin victory over Will May. Saltz (160) keeps the turn going when he also secures a fall over Ryan Sills bringing the team scores to Norwalk 24 and Ballard 25. N. Johnston (170) takes the mat next for the War- riors against Jake Forre. Forre ends up securing the fall for Ballard. Onstot (182) does a nice job for the Warriors by winning a decisioned match against Tyler Kyhl. After Onstot gets done, Vo~tel (195) manages to secure a fall over Easton Moody. The last two matches were be- tween Minnis (220) and Alex Macki of Ballard and Kestel (285) and Alex Silberstein. Macki and Silberstein both secured falls bringing the final scores to Norwalk 33, Ballard 43. t
