Wrestling: Shorewood vs Lynnwood Friday night

Saturday, January 21, 2023

Shorewood visited Lynnwood High School on Friday night for a tough match against the home Royals

The first bout of the evening set the tone for the entire contest. Shorewood freshman Paddy Andresen stepped out under the lights and battled back and forth with his opponent. Clinging to a two point lead, Andresen gave up a reversal with seconds left in the third period to force sudden death overtime. It was the Royal wrestler who struck first as the home team snatched away a victory.

Andresen’s valiant effort was followed up by junior Mak Kanzler in the 170 match. Kanzler came out on fire and bullied his way to an 11-1 lead early in the 3rd. Kanzler, who attends King’s High School, but wrestles for Shorewood because King’s does not have a team, never took his foot off the gas and was able to finally pin his opponent and give Shorewood the lead.

The pin at 170 pounds was the first in a string of five straight pins by the Stormrays as they built a 30-3 lead in the team score. 

Lynnwood would not go easily though, as senior Phillipe Ban faced off against Shorewood freshman Eli Jeppsen in the 106 pound match. Jeppsen could not get anything to work, nearly scoring time after time only to find himself with a 6-1 deficit at the end of the 2nd period. With pure determination Jeppsen began a furious comeback and was holding Ban’s shoulders barely off the mat as time expired to force overtime with the score tied 9-9. In the extra period Jeppsen blocked Ban’s leg attack and spun around behind as the referee awarded him a two point takedown, only to see one last gasp of explosion from Ban, reversing the move as the ref changed his own call and gave the win to the home wrestler.

Three more wins in a row by Lynnwood narrowed Shorewood’s team lead to just 30-23 with four weight classes left. A pair of sophomores put Shorewood back in charge in the 132 and 138 pound match ups. First it was Masa Taura, using a quick takedown to pin his opponent in just 49 seconds. Then it was James Nottingham, grinding his way to a methodical 7-0 win. Those two wins gave Shorewood an insurmountable team lead on their way to a gutsy 45-29 victory.
