It was a wild day of wrestling for the Shorewood Thunderbirds on Wednesday as they took their undefeated record to Edmonds-Woodway high school for a triple-dual against Ingraham, Cedarcrest and Edmonds-Woodway.

The wrestling began with Shorewood facing the Metro League Ingraham. The T-Birds found themselves behind 12-6 after the first three weights. At 126 pounds freshman Isaac Van Horn pulled off a back-and-forth 18-12 victory and it was all Shorewood from then on. 

Over the eight weight classes from 126 to 182 pounds Shorewood went on a 44-0 run as they cruised to a 56-20 victory.

The second contest of the night was Shorewood against Cedarcrest. Both teams entered the match undefeated in the league and eying a District Championship. 

Sophomore Quincy Laflin stepped on the mat first at 113 pounds and picked up his seventh pin in his last seven matches to give Shorewood an early lead. After each Shorewood win Cedarcrest responded with a win of their own for an 18-18 tie after 145 pounds. 

A forfeit at 152 gave Shorewood another narrow lead. Junior Cole Becker at 160 pounds wasted no time as he needed just 38 seconds to pin his opponent to stretch the Thunderbird advantage. RJ Buchheit and Hunter Tibodeau continued the pin party as Shorewood jumped out to a 42-18 lead with just four weights to go. 

At 195 pounds Cedarcrest stopped the bleeding with a tough second round pin by Matthew Weinert, ranked #2 in the state. With momentum back on their side they pinned again at 220 and 285 pounds and then got a forfeit at 106 to tie the team score 42-42. 

It went to the rule books as the referees and coaches went through the tie-breaker rules to determine an outcome. It went all the way to the ninth tie-breaker, most first points scored across all of the individual matches, for Shorewood to be declared the winner and remain undefeated.

Devin Leach
After the close call against Cedarcrest, Shorewood finished the night against the reigning Wesco South Champion Edmonds-Woodway Warriors. 

With both teams undefeated the winner would clinch a district title. 

The dual began at 120 pounds and Ed-way wasted no time as they got a pin to open the scoring. Things looked bad for Shorewood in the second bout as Isaac Van Horn fell behind 7-2 after the first period. He picked the bottom position to begin the second round and reversed his opponent to his back for a pin to tie the team score 6-6. 

The Warriors pulled back ahead by winning the next three weights. Thunderbird senior captain Devin Leach went out at 152 pounds and faced off against two-time state placer Howie Hare. Leach left zero doubt as he dominated the entire way for an 8-1 win. Cole Becker followed Leach and got his 3rd pin of the day.

Hunter Tibodeau
After a loss at 170 pounds it was freshman Hunter Tibodeau at 182 pounds. Tibodeau tossed his opponent to his back in the opening seconds of the first round and got the pin. 

With the win, Tibodeau not only got his team-leading 26th win of the season, but he broke the Shorewood record for most regular season wins by a freshman. 

The teams each got a close decision in the next two weights as Edmonds-Woodway clung to a 28-24 lead with three weights left. Showing why they are reigning champs, Edmonds-Woodway closed the night with a pair of pins at 285 and 113 sandwiched around a forfeit at 106 for a final team score of 46-24.

Shorewood wrestles next against their cross-town rivals Shorecrest Friday night, January 31, 2020 for the Spartan Cup. Wrestling will begin at 7pm at Shorecrest.
