• Montrose ekes out win over Central
Central lost the first six matches of a Southwestern League dual wrestling match Thursday night, five by pin, then rallied to win seven of the last eight matches, but it wasn’t enough to hold off Montrose, which claimed a 38-37 victory at Montrose.
The match started at 145 pounds, where Tony Summers was pinned by Montrose’s Erik Stucky with 15 seconds left in the match. From there, the Indians won at 152 pounds by a technical fall, then pinned the next five Warriors to take a 35-0 lead.
Zach Rosales put Central on the board by pinning Casey Childs in the heavyweight match and Matthew Gurule followed with a major decision at 103 pounds. Jaqub Gurule won his match at 112, but Montrose got three crucial points when Kyle Rogers defeated Anthony Feller at 119. Jesus Rodriguez, Daniel Rodriguez, Zach Short and Willie Holdren finished out the match by winning for Central, all by pin.
“We should have won (103 and 112) by pin but we didn’t get it done,” Central coach Laurence Gurule said. “And we shouldn’t have gotten pinned where we did.”
