Barons roll past Cocalico in Section Two opener Manheim Central 58, Cocalico 15
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.
