Wrestling: A stress filled night for Shorewood team

Saturday, December 21, 2019

It was another stress filled night for the Shorewood wrestling team on Tuesday as they defeated the Chargers of Marysville-Getchell 39-36.
The match began with the heavyweights and points were at a premium. The score was tied 1-1 going into sudden death overtime where a mistimed throw by Shorewood's Taejin Thongdee gave Getchell a takedown and an early 3-0 lead in the team score.

A pair of forfeits and a narrow 2-1 victory at 120 pounds allowed the Chargers to pull ahead 18-0. At 126 pounds Shorewood's Kai Layton returned to the varsity line-up after missing the past week due to illness and pinned his opponent to get Shorewood on the board.

Two matches later, at 138 pounds, Aidan Jung needed just 44 seconds for the pin. Jung was the first of five straight Thunderbirds to emerge victorious as Shorewood grabbed a 33-24 advantage. 

A loss at 182 pounds left Shorewood with just a three point lead with two matches to go. Freshman Hunter Tibodeau responded to the challenge as he gave Shorewood an insurmountable lead with his seventh pin in his last seven matches.

Shorewood wrestles next this Saturday at the Barry Knott Classic hosted by Nathan Hale High School. Wrestling begins at 10am.
