GAME OF THE WEEK (Dec. 12–18)

WRESTLING: Lancaster 51, River Valley 27

Lancaster – With a 51-27 victory over visiting River Valley last Friday night, the Lancaster varsity wrestling team improved to 8-0 on the season, and 2-0 in Southwest Wisconsin Conference dual-meet action.

The Blackhawks put up a good fight against the home Arrows, as each team picked up four pins and one decision in Friday night’s match, but the 24-point difference came from four forfeits given up by River Valley.

Picking up pins for the Arrows were: 113-pound sophomore Remington Bontreger over Jimmy Jennings (4:51), 120-pound sophomore Carter Lull over Cole White (1:26), 132-pound junior Matthew Crosby over Hadyn Walsh (4:35), and 195-pound junior Dustin Wolf over Logan Tonstad (1:51).

Perhaps the most exciting match of the night came at 220 pounds, where junior Caden Straka moved up a weight class to meet River Valley’s Brock Mahoney.

Mahoney led most of the match, including late in the third period, but a take-down and back points awarded to Straka with only seconds remaining, kept his unbeaten record alive with a 7-5 decision.

Lancaster received forfeits at 106 (Michael Ihm), 152 (Collin Lull), 170 (Owen Wolf) and 285 pounds (Ben Withey).

Three nights earlier, coach Brad Sturmer’s Flying Arrows host Cuba City/Southwestern/Benton in a non-conference dual meet, where Lancaster cruised to a 66-7 victory.

The Arrows picked up a whopping eight pins in last Tuesday night’s match, as well as two forfeits and two decisions. The visitors collected seven points on a 9-0 major decision at 285 pounds, and a 7-4 decision at 170 pounds.

Picking up pins for Lancaster were: 106-pound freshman Remington Bontreger (1:41), 113-pound sophomore Owen Yoose (:31), 120-pound sophomore Carter Lull (1:27), 126-pound senior Caleb Lucey (1:13), 138-pound sophomore Isaac Oyen (2:53), 145-pound junior Logan Schneider (1:41), 195-pound junior Cade Straka (2:59) and 220-pound senior Cole Zenz (4:16).

The undefeated Flying Arrows will be in action on Friday night at the Ithaca Quadrangular that also includes Brookwood and Darlington. Dual meets are scheduled to start at 5 p.m.
