Warren sweeps: Warrior wrestlers take down Waterford, Marietta

Photos by Jay W. Bennett Warren’s Hayley Snyder earned a 7-1 decision against Marietta’s Jack Roe during their 113-pound match.

WATERFORD — Coen Wagner and Haden Offenberger collected two pins apiece and teammate Ethan Beardmore also went 2-0 for host Waterford during Wednesday’s tri match inside the Harry Cooper Annex, but the Wildcats watched as Warren head coach Jeff Parsons’ squad left town with two match triumphs.

Waterford opened with a 30-24 victory against Marietta, which received all of its points via forfeits thanks to Jack Roe (113), Peggy Belin (120), Robby Swisher (195) and heavyweight Ethan Prather.

However, the Wildcats were upended by Warren, 45-18. Beardmore (132) secured a first period pin versus James Lively, Wagner (145) pinned Kylee Tait in 2:26 while the 170-pound Offenberger took care of JT Rice with a mat slapper in 76 seconds.

“We wrestled two weeks ago today,” said Wildcat boss Greg Offenberger of competing at Caldwell with Shadyside. “We’ve got a tri next Wednesday down at River Valley against River Valley and South Gallia and then that following Saturday, the second, we’ll be at Fort Frye for their invitational. Me and coach Parsons had talked earlier this week about maybe even cancelling this.

“Then we looked at it like we have an opportunity to get some matches in so let’s go ahead and wrestle. We were missing four guys tonight so that hurts. We just came off a week of quarantine so we had 10 days in quarantine and we just came back to practice Monday and we’ve been hitting it pretty hard this week.”

Marietta’s Peggy Belin tries to control Warren’s Clay Carpenter during their 120-pound match. Carpenter won via a 19-4 technical fall.

The Tigers of head man Jeff Davis avoided a shutout against Warren thanks to 182-pounder Hudson Misel earning a 6-4 decision versus Rice, who registered the first takedown.

Warren, which got 2-0 efforts from Hayley Snyder (113), Clay Carpenter (120), Hayden Wiggers (138), Brody Tait (152, two pins), Cole Hupp (160), Dylan Keife (195), Hunter Vincent and heavyweight Jake Welch, now will be getting some extra time off.

“It’s nice to get out here and get some matches in,” admitted Parsons. “With the COVID outbreaks we’re happy to wrestle whenever we can. It kind of looks like we are going to take a couple weeks break here, unplanned, but the school administrators think it’s for the best so we’re going to take a couple weeks break and come back at it in January.

“Having time off is going to be tough, but we got a good group of kids. Wouldn’t suprise me a bit if I don’t see them out at the parks running and keeping their weight down. We’ve got eight seniors this year, a very determind team and they will do what they need to do to stay in shape and be ready to go.”

Aside from the Misel/Rice match, the only other decision during the tri which came by two points was when Wiggers decisioned Wildcat Dustin Doak, 8-6. Doak had a takedown in the first period, but allowed an escape and a takedown as he trailed 3-2 entering the third. Despite getting a reveral with 50 seconds left for a 4-3 lead, Wiggers hit a five-point move to take control before allowing a late reversal to set the final score.

Marietta 182-pounder Hudson Misel earned the Tigers’ lone win against Warren by registering a 6-4 decision versus Warrior JT Rice during Wedneday’s tri match at the Harry Cooper Annex.

Doak also had a win via forfeit against Marietta while Wildcat 152-pounder Tyson Moore needed five minutes exactly to pin Tiger Aaron Vessels.
