Week Four: Home Match 1/6/11

The Panthers hosted the first of only two home matches of the year on Thursday night in the Doc Daugherty Gym at Euclid High School. In this super tri. they took on league foe Cleveland Heights and Chagrin Falls. Collinwood was also there to wrestle the other teams, but not Euclid. The Panthers opened with a 66-16 victory over the game Tigers of Cleveland Heights. Recording wins for the team were Jeremy Adkins, Mike Figer, Reggie Phillips, Zak Adkins, and Kenneth Reese through forfeits. Pins were provided by Jared Clinton, Darsheed Mustafa, Rynell Roper, Dylan Norwood, Lamar Gunter, and Noah Brown.

In the next match the Panthers took on the Tigers of Chagrin Falls, a team that defeated us last year by the score of 52-18. This year we turned the tables and beat them 53-17. What a remarkable turnaround from last year. Winning for the Panthers were Ebrahim Elbagory, Jeremy Adkins, Jared Clinton, Darsheed Mustafa, Reggie Phillips, Zak Adkins, Rynell Roper, Dylan Norwood, Lamar Gunter, and Noah Brown.

What a great night of wrestling. The team has really improved since the very first dual meets and they are gelling together with a good mixture of seniors and newcomers. I am excited to see how far we progress.

Videos will be posted soon.
