Rams roll past Rangers

Record six pins in victory

MT. VERNON —

The Rams wrestling team recorded a half dozen pins in a 65-12 Wednesday night win over Benton.

It doesn't matter who they put out there Benton's always got quality kids,” Mt. Vernon coach Sean Docherty said. “They're young. Marion was young a few years ago, and they got their kids lots of varsity experience and look at them now. You take these wins when you can get them.”

Thomas Vosburgh (106 pounds), Josiah Fitzjerrells (120), Quentin Favors (126), Chase Vosburgh (152), Alex Hopkins (220) and Tristan Penrod (285) all finished with pins for the Rams.

Mt. Vernon also garnered several forfeit wins with Benton failing to fill four weight classes.

Thomas Vosburgh pinned his opponent with just four seconds left in the match. Other matches like Chase Vosburgh's victory in 35 seconds and Tristan Penrod's win in 41 seconds were quick victories for the Rams. Hopkins scored his victory in less than a minute as well.

The closest match of the night came at 145 pounds with Mt. Vernon's Logan Kulinski recording a 8-6 victory. Kulinski trailed 2-0 early but took a 6-4 lead in the third and final period. The match was late tied before Kulinski scored two decisive points late in the period to seal the win for the Rams.

The battle was really good,”Docherty said. “That was one of the kids that I talked to. It's sloppy. We've got to clean things up to where we don't let the (opponents) in. We don't let your opponent think that he's got a chance. You have to be able to clean those things up and be more technical when you're out there.”

Mt. Vernon's Alex Lowery was also involved in a close match at 170 pounds. Lowery was a winner on a 6-3 decision. At 160 pounds, Mt. Vernon's Jacob Williamson dominated his opponent for a 16-1 technical fall win.
