Laker wrestlers down Tualatin, take third at OC
One league match remains as the team preps for districts
The Lake Oswego wrestling team downed Tualatin 40-27 last week, building some momentum as it heads into its final league match with Lakeridge and prepares for districts.
The Lakers grabbed the early momentum in the match, scoring three straight pins to build an 18-0 lead.
Hayden Hanson pinned his opponent a little more than a minute into the match at 106 pounds. Taht was followed by an even faster pin from Max Fox at 113 pounds, ending his match in 42 seconds.
At 120 pounds, Daniar Imanbayev worked his opponent onto his back and earned a pin at the buzzer of the opening round.
Tualatin earned a pin in the next match but Brian Fay got those points back for the Lakers at 132 pounds. He pinned his opponent 25 seconds into the third round.
Midway through the match, Lake Oswego tallied three straight victories.
Matt Quinn won one of the best matches of the evening with a narrow 4-3 decision, followed by Patrick Conroy winning 4-1 at 152 pounds.
Justin Hanson then earned a major decision with a 12-4 victory at 160.
After Tualatin picked up 12 points with a forfeit and another pin, Chase Otis scored a narrow decision at 195 pounds, as did Griffin Roach at 220 pounds 5-3.
That would be enough to earn another victory for the Lakers with just one regular season match remaining.
Lake Oswego followed that victory by taking third place at the Oregon City tournament over the weekend.
Hayden Hanson and Marco Young were both champions in their respective brackets with Hanson going unbeaten at 106 pounds and Young doing the same at 145.
Three other Lakers made the championship match with Fox, Fay and Quinn all finishing as runners up.Add a comment
