Although the outcome of the dual meet was never in question, there were a few marquee match-ups, as well as a great charity event, which made for an exciting evening of wrestling at Warwick on Thursday. Proceeds from the dual went to “Pinning Down Cancer.”
On the strength of 4 pins and 4 forfeits, Warwick, the #3 ranked team in NYS, dominated Port Jervis 54-25. The dual meet, however, did feature two marquee match-ups between ranked wrestlers; both matches lived up to their billing. At 145 pounds, Warwick’s Shane Connolly defeated Port’s Dylan Muller by a score of 2-0. Connolly, a 4X Section 9 champion, scored the only points of the match with a takedown at the end of the first period. At 160 pounds, Warwick’s Ryan Bedross narrowly defeated Travis Edwards 3-2. The other potential headline match could have taken place at 152 pounds where many in attendance anticipated a showdown between Warwick’s Kyle Weirzbicki and Port’s Bret Sauschuck. Weirzbicki was injured, however, and did not dress for the dual. Click below for complete boxscore.
