Quick decisions: Mount Si wrestlers handle Bellevue in short order
December 19, 2011 · 6:22 PM
Sophomore Tanner Stahl had no trouble describing the moves that went right for him in his three-minute bout.
Stahl, who pinned Garret Williams in Mount Si’s Dec. 14 home match with Bellevue, showed confident control in the final set of the night. His win helped the Wildcats beat Bellevue, 51 to 28, their second team victory of the season.
“I just went out there and ran my cross-wrist series,” said Stahl, who is 2 and 2 this season at 126 pounds.
“He pinned me last year at 112. It was good to come back this year and pin him... an improvement.”
Wednesday’s speedy match was hurried by quick decisions.
Heavyweight Josh Mitchell pinned Bellevue’s James Trull in less than half a minute. It took Mount Si 170-pounder Cole Palmer 27 seconds to pin opponent John Manusco.
At 182, Wildcat Douglas Knox pinned his man, Alex Palander, in 35 seconds. At 160, Mount Si’s AJ Brevick pinned Sam Bassford in 1:18.
At 138, Wildcat Bruce Stuart won by decision over Ben Matteucci.
The Bellevue win followed a strong Dec. 8 win against Juanita.
The Wildcats are on their way to the Best of the West tournament, Dec. 22 and 23 in Pasco.
