Shorewood wrestling ends 11 year losing streak to defeat Meadowdale 45-24

Friday, January 30, 2015

Shorewood finished the regular season on Thursday night by ending an 11 year losing streak to Meadowdale with a 45-24 road victory. Before the match Meadowdale honored their graduating seniors, but it was the underclassmen of Shorewood that tipped the balance.

The match began at 113 pounds and Thunderbird freshman Aiden Smith fell behind 9-2 through two and a half periods.  Smith never gave up, attacking without restraint to stage a furious comeback. Although Smith ultimately lost 10-7, it was clear the Thunderbirds were ready to fight.

Two weights later freshman Matthew McMillan stepped on the mat to face Maverick junior Beck Millet with his team behind 9-0. With both wrestlers unable to get past the other’s defense McMillan held a narrow 1-0 lead going into the third period. Millet scored a reversal to take a 2-1 lead with one minute left. McMillan kept fighting and scored a reversal of his own with 30 seconds left, riding out his opponent for a 3-2 win.

After sophomore Fidel Chishingu tied the team score at 9-9 with a pin at 132 pounds it was sophomore Elias Thorne’s turn to wrestle. Shorewood’s Thorne pulled away late to defeat Meadowdale’s Elias Lynch 5-1. Freshman Johnny Villegas made his first varsity appearance of the season in the 145 pound match and did not waste it. Villegas needed only 32 seconds to pin his opponent, the fastest pin of the night for either team, giving Shorewood an 18-9 lead in the team score. When sophomore Troy Halloway-Beach won by forfeit in 195 pound weight class the Thunderbirds had an insurmountable lead.   

Shorewood wrestles next in the district tournament at Edmonds-Woodway High School on February 6th and 7th. Wrestling begins at 5pm on the 6th and 10am on the 7th.
