Kellogg Knights wrestling team wins first two matches of the season

Sunday, March 10, 2019

The Kellogg Knights Middle School kicked off the wrestling season on Friday night with matches against the Meadowdale Vikings and the Brier Terrace Bulldogs.

In the first match of the season the Knights faced off against Meadowdale. The match started well for Kellogg as they grabbed a forfeit at 81 pounds and a pin from George Fernandez at 88 pounds for an early 12-0 lead. The teams traded wins over the next five weights as the Knights held on to the lead thanks in part to a narrow 13-11 win by Porter Lewis at 108 pounds and a first round pin by Peter Grimm at 118 pounds. 

Meadowdale would rally by winning four matches in row and five of six, included back-to-back one point wins at 133 and 140 pounds. Those close losses prevented the Vikings from running up the team score as they took a 42-33 lead.

At 167 pounds Knight wrestler Cage Jensen put an end to Meadowdale’s momentum, making quick work of his opponent with a first round pin. Following Jensen, Ryder Baldwin also got a first round pin for Kellogg at 178 pounds to give Kellogg the lead again at 45-42. After Kellogg received a forfeit at 188 pounds the Knights sent out Jessie Gigrich at 218 pounds. Gigrich used a vicious head-and-arm to toss his opponent from his feet straight to his back for a huge pin that gave the team an insurmountable lead on their way to the 57-54 victory.

In Kellogg’s second match they went against the Brier Terrace Bulldogs. The match started in a similar fashion to the Meadowdale match as Brier Terrace took a slight 15-12 lead thanks to an 8-6 win at 103 pounds. Kellogg wrestler Porter Lewis stepped on the mat at 108 pounds and pinned his opponent in just over a minute to take back the lead at 18-15. Sparked by Lewis, Kellogg won six matches in a row, highlighted by a dramatic 13-11 overtime victory by Ole Burns at 128 pounds. 

Thanks to some forfeits in the upper weights and another pin from Gigrich at 218 pounds the Knights ran away with Bulldogs for a 75-30 victory.

Kellogg’s next match will next Tuesday, March 12th, as they host the Evergreen Timberwolves.
