Mustangs getting ready to host the Redhawks with new coach, Matt Long, in tow. First dual of the season for Naperville Central – it’s the second for Metea Valley.
Let’s open up with the 120 weight class, and Naperville Central’s Tommy Porter wrestling Metea Valley’s Jack Coyle.
And the Redhawk trying to turn a takedown into a pin – and able to flip Coyle. And then moments later, secures the 6-team points. NC up 18-0 after two early MV forfeits.
We go next to 126 with Tyler Drieseens going for NC… Kenny Siwicki battling for Metea.
And in the second period, Siwicki has the Redhawk locked up – before turning him over and nabbing another pin.
Moving on to the bout at 132… Central’s Alex Knusel going up against Metea’s Esteban Calderon… and despite seeming to have secured a single-leg grab, Calderon finds himself on the wrong end of a reverse – and Knusel rallies late to take a 12-9 win in three periods.
Next to the Redhawk, Sean King, and the Mustang, Ethan Miller – colliding at 160. And immediately, King with the take down and cut for the lead. Later on, King has his opponent fighting to stay off his back – and King ends it with a pin. NC up 42-0
Metea’s only win of the night comes at the 195 pound weight class compliments of Sean Burke. He’s going up against Central’s Austin Langmire and gets the takedown mid-match. The Mustang would win due to stalling but the Redhawks take the win in grand fashion.
