Area Wrestling - Peshtigo Downs Menominee; Coleman Drops Escanaba in Dual Competition

Peshtigo Takes Down Menominee

Thursday evening, the Peshtigo wrestlers took to Menominee for a match against the Maroons.  With both teams fairly evenly matched, it was the Bulldogs that earned a tough victory, 42-25. 

"We have a young squad just like they do.  It came down to having to win the matches and it was a great dual that could have gone either way.  I think both teams wrestled quite well and it was a fun dual to be at," said Peshtigo Coach Warren Howard. "This was their first match of the year, so I thought they came after us pretty strong.  They won the close ones, that's what hurts you a bit but we're happy to come out on top."

Kyle Rivet helped his Bulldog team jump out to the early team lead in the 103 lb. weight class.  Matched up with Mel Zuraski of Menominee, Rivet pinned Zuraski in 53 seconds, putting Peshtigo up 6-0. 

In the 112 lb. match, Peshtigo's Zack Wauters followed suit and pinned Aiden Smith of Menominee in just 34 seconds.  The pin put Peshtigo up 12-0.  The Bulldogs went up 24-0 thanks to forfeit victories for Nick Parrett at 119 and Brian Krouth at 125. 

It was the 140-pound match that had everyone yelling on the edge of their seats.  Peshtigo's Max Rauch faced off against Menominee's top wrestler, Ian Brown.  The two battled to an even 9-9 score after three periods.  In sudden victory, Rauch avoided one takedown by Brown, before eventually Brown secured the two points and won the match 11-9.  This would put the team score at 24-3 Bulldogs.

"If you can watch wrestling like that, that's what wrestling is all about.  Let's wrestle the full six, and if we have to go to extra time let's do that too, so that was a lot of fun.  We wanted to win that match but he gave everything they had, they both did.  That was an exciting match," stated Coach Howard.

Two forfeit wins for Menominee, one for Owen Weber at 145 and the other for Devon Bournonville at 152, helped the Maroons cut Peshtigo's lead to 24-15. 

Menominee's Hunter Wroblewski defeated Peshtigo's Steven Hammer in the 160-pound match by major decision, 16-2, marking the team score at 24-19.

The Bulldogs reeled off three straight pins to help secure the team win.  Bulldog Philip Graves took on the Maroons' William Burnett in the 171-bout.  Graves caught Burnett and earned the pin in 1:02.   Peshtigo's Cam Lepkowski defeated William Poquette of Menominee via pin in 31 seconds to take the 189-pound match.  It was then Gavin Brissette's turn for the Bulldogs.  Brissette pinned Menominee's Jakob Stebbins in the 215 match after 56 seconds to put Peshtigo up 42-19.

In the final match of the night, Menominee's Jacob Laatsch pinned Bulldog Paul Lemke at the 1:46 mark of the heavyweight match.  Peshtigo won the dual, 42-25.

"Obviously, I have a new assistant coach in Mac Drees, who actually wrestled for me.  He's been doing a lot of the practices so I have to give him a lot of credit.  The team is really responding to his great attitude and ability.  Three-time place winner for us, two-time finalist, and a wrestler in college so you know he's got it.  He's going to help us turn this program around and get it going," Coach Howard said of his assistant.

Cougars Break the Ice with Win Over Eskymos

The Coleman Cougars didn't have too long of night on their home mats last Friday when the Escanaba Eskimos came to town. With a skeleton crew the Eskimos fell behind quickly as the forfeit wins added up for the Cougars. Coleman won the dual meet 61-15.

"The kids that wrestled today did a great job," said Coleman Head Coach Kevin Casper. "I wish more of them could have had matches today but Escanaba has some nice wrestlers."

Among those who took forfeit wins were Billy Ganter at 126 pounds, Devin Schulte at 160 lbs. Jordan Blanchard at 170 lbs, Gunnar Patz at 195, Jacob Zeitler at 220 and Kasey Casper at 120 lbs.

With all these forfeits, there were only only seven live matches, and Coleman dominated all but a few.

At 132 lbs. Coleman's Jake Baldwin worked Courage Krueger for a pin in 1:23.

Ty Hoffman went the distance with Escanaba's Hunter Larson but was bested by way of a 13-6 decision.

Another win was grabbed by Escanaba in the 145 lb. bout between their Hunter Royer and Coleman's John Bieber who fell by way of pin in 1:30. The final Esky win came in the 182 pound bout between Breyden Papineau and Coleman's Abraham Nowak. Papineau secured the win with a pin in 2:43.

The 152 lb. Bryce Karban had his hands full in his match against Ean Bevins. After three rounds of tough grappling Karban edged Bevins with a 7-5 decision.

Koltin Grzybowski also went the distance in his 106 lb. bout with Escanaba's Justin Mathieson. Grzybowski controlled the match from start but quickly found out the Mathieson wasn't going to just roll over. After three rounds Grzybowski secured a 12-3 major decision.

"All seven of the Escanaba kids that wrestled today were physical kids, they gave us everything they had," said Casper.

Caleb Gross posted the evenings quickest pin, taking down Simon Chouinard in 44 seconds.

Gillett/Suring Grapplers Downed by Southern Door

Southern Door's wrestling team defeated Gillett/Suring on the road Thursday, Dec. 8 by a score of 46-27 with the help of six pins.

The match started at 170, with a double forfeit. Elcho then took an early 6-0 lead when Daniel Brownell won on a forfeit at 182.

Nathan Cruz (195) pinned Jacob Eighmy at 195 to even things at six-all, but the tie only lasted for one match, Elcho's Austin Becker won a forfeit at 285 to make it 12-6 Elcho.

Things turned in Lena's favor at 113 and 120, when they took an 18-12 courtesy of forfeit wins by Braxton Nelson and Alex DeCoursin. Elcho evened the score at 18 with a Collin Smith pin of Noah Chang at 132.

Brian Ermis (145) pinned Noah Binverse to give Lena a 24-18 lead going into the final two matchups, but things quickly turned for the worst for the Wildcats as Brennan Livermore (152) and Brock Smith (160) each pinned their opponents to secure a six point victory.

Double forfeits occurred at the 106, 126, 138, 170, and 220 weight classes.
