The Lakers win four matches with regional tourney looming

by: VERN UYETAKE - Cahleb Gonzales get his West Linn opponent on his back in his 14-4 win last week.The Lake Oswego wrestling team wrapped up the regular season last week with a dual meet against a very strong West Linn squad.

The Lakers won four matches out of 11 contested in a 56-19 loss.

Lake Oswego held its own against the Lions despite giving up 18 points in forfeits.

The Lakers jumped out to a big lead by capturing the first three matches of the night.

At 106 pounds, Max Fox got Lake Oswego's momentum going with a big pin. Cahleb Gonzales followed by racking up point at 113 pounds.

Gonzales walked away with a 14-4 major decision. At 120 pounds, Riley Tallman put together an impressive performance.

Tallman played strong defense for the entirety of the match, giving up just one escape and ground out a 2-1 victory.

That win put Lake Oswego up 13-0. But much of West Linn's strength lies in the middle weights and the Lions were quick to rebound.

The Lions won four straight matches, three by pins and one by technical fall to claim the lead. At 195 pounds, Tayler Godfrey gave Garrett Harmon a tough battle in a 4-1 decision.

Austin Faunce picked up Lake Oswego's final win of the evening with a pin at 220 pounds, continuing to establish himself as one of the top wrestlers in the state.

The Lakers will now gear up for regionals on Feb. 15 and 16 at Oregon City High School where they will look to qualify a handful of individuals to state.
