The Manheim Central wrestlers opened the Section Two season in dominant fashion on Tuesday night, winning 11 of 14 bouts in a 58-15 shellacking of Cocalico in Manheim.

Along the way, the Barons (1-0) earned bonus points in eight bouts and received one forfeit from the Eagles.

Ben Metzler’s 15-0 tech fall over Cocalico’s Darin Youndt in 3:10 in the 145-pound match set the early tone and Manheim Central never looked back. From 152 to 170, the Barons recorded three straight falls, courtesy of David Fantom (2:39), Jared Siegrist (1:05) and Harrison Myer (5:07) to make it 23-0.

Overall the Barons finished with six pins and two tech falls, with the second of those coming from J.J. Sanchez in the 195-pound bout, a 15-0 shutout of Abdul Saad in 3:37.

Rey Lasanta’s fall in just 1:43 over Noulong Lor in the 220-pound bout pushed Central’s advantage to 40-0 before the Eagles finally got on the scoreboard with Jon Fry’s pin in 5:08 over Ethan Lindsey in the heavyweight bout.

Central’s Ryan Gandy then outscored Justin Moyer 11-10 at 106, Caleb Enck notched a 6-1 win at 113, and Kyler West earned the Barons’ fifth fall in 3:18 at 120.

The Eagles got back-to-back wins at 126 and 132 on Andrew Weston’s forfeit and Riley Robinette’s 17-15 OT win. But MC completed the scoring on Jordan Esbenshade’s fall in 3:54 in the 138-pound bout.
