Portage sinks Blue Devil wrestlers

The Bellwood-Antis wrestling teams ventured into Cambria County on Tuesday night, braving the weather and the roads to visit Portage. The hosts were as ungracious as the icy temperatures, handing both varsity and junior high teams losses.
The Blue Devil varsity received wins from Troy Weyant (103), Timmy Collier (130), Ricky Shawley (145), Ronnie Wilson (152) and Caleb Stevens (215) but suffered a 48-27 beating.
Weyant (15-9) who tied Ara Aposhian (’84-’85) for third place on the Bellwood-Antis freshman win list, and Wilson (12-8) picked up forfeits.
Collier (6-13) made short work of Mike Flynn, taking the Portage 130-pounder down and working for the quick fall in 0:46 to record his first pin of the season.
Shawley (23-1) continued his splendid season with a fall over Jake Adams in eight seconds of the second period. Shawley registered a takedown immediately in the opening period, then played with Adams, jacking up three nearfalls in succession to lead 11-0 after one period. Then the B-A senior picked up his team leading 12th fall, picking Adams up and depositing him on his back for the quick fall.
Stevens (4-13) broke out of a five-match losing streak with a solid 10-3 win over Travis Stager. Stevens led just 3-1 after two periods, but added a pair of takedowns and three nearfall points to widen the gap in the third stanza.
At 119, Donnie Partner (3-17) led 2-0 over Justin McKrush after two periods. McKrush escaped early in the final period and then with just nine seconds left in the match scored the winning takedown to edge Partner 3-2. Garett Wyland (6-13) rallied from a 5-2 deficit after the first period with an escape and takedown to knot the score against Ryan Fuller, 5-5. Fuller added an escape and Wyland notched a penalty point early in the third period, before with eight seconds remaining, Fuller hit a takedown for an 8-6 win.
Shane Noye (7-13) was pinned in 3:22 by Shawn Perich, while trailing just 3-2, at 125. Cody Fink (5-17) was decked by Robbie Roxby at 135, in 0:46. Dustin Pruznak (3-12) was pinned by Steve Lutz at 140, in 3:04. Steve Fuller pinned Troy Byers (3-18) in 3:52, with Byers trailing 4-3. Jimmy Watters (9-13) was decked in 4:25, by Joe Shook at 189, and Cody Smith (3-5) was pinned in 1:58 by Travis Macidyn at 285.
The Portage junior high (11-1) won for the 11th time in 12 duals by knocking off the Bellwood-Antis junior high 45-38.
Bellwood-Antis won five of the first seven weight classes to jump out to a 26-9 lead, but couldn’t hold on, winning only three of the final 10 weights.
Danny Noye (105) and Travis Taylor (145) won by pin, Lincoln Stehley (110) won by a 15-0 technical fall, Gerald Price (210) won a 9-0 major decision, and Trevor Helsley (95) and Nic Cover (165) won regular decisions. Luke McFarland (90) and Buddy Shaw (122) won by forfeit.
