Dundee-Crown battles past Jacobs
- Photos (5)
Things went pretty much according to form, which added up to a dual-meet win for Dundee-Crown.
The Chargers dominated the middle weights, then survived a late rally by Jacobs for the 39-28 win in Fox Valley Conference Valley Division wrestling action Thursday in Algonquin.
Elijah Velez, Armando Gutierrez, Jarrod Raap and Christian Brunner all scored pins for the Chargers (16-3).
Mark Mamola and Cody Ferencz won by fall for Jacobs, which celebrated Senior Night in its final home dual of the season.
"I thought my '06 pounder came out tough, but the Jacobs kid is good," said Chargers' coach Robert Skillman. "I thought we had a chance there, but other than that everything else went according to form.
"They're tough. They're going to be tougher next year because they're only losing two kids. I knew it was going to be tight, but it probably went the way we expected."
Chris Dranka at 126 won the first bout of the evening, 13-4, giving the home team an early 4-0 lead. But then the Chargers went on a roll, starting when Jequann Flynn scored a takedown with a minute left for a 7-5 victory. Martell Thompson at 138 kept it going with a 7-1 decision. Velez and Gutierrez then pinned their opponents in a combined 4:13.
After a major decision by Tim Schanmier at 160, the Chargers led 22-4.
D-C's biggest disappointment came when DaShun Lloyd (170) had to retire with an injury in the second period, giving the default win to Jacobs' Michael Bujacz. The two had engaged in a wild bout until then, with each wrestler nearly pinning his opponent several times.
But the Chargers quickly got back on track, with Raap and Brunner each scoring pins exactly 1:47 into the bout.
After Mamola's win, Jeremy Marshall finished D-C's scoring with a technical fall at heavyweight.
Jacobs closed on a roll, with Beau Harrier (106), and David Dudych winning decisions. Ferencz closed the night on a high note for the home team with a pin 1:42 into the bout.
