Mountaineer Duals

The inaugural Mountaineer Duals at Berlin Brothersvalley featured a couple of really good teams and some really bad ones. Chestnut Ridge and host Berlin each went unbeaten on the day and outscored their competition by nearly 300 points on the day. I covered it for The Tribune-Democrat and explain there why the teams didn't wrestle one another.
Even some of the blowout duals had some interesting matches. One of the biggest surprises for me was how Southern Huntingdon's Brennon Shields dominated Trent Crouse in their dual. I didn't get to see the match, but at 11-1 it looks like Shields was in total control. Also in that dual, Dison Myers beat Derrick Claar 2-0.
The anticipated matchup between Ridge's Dan Albright and HOPE for Hyndman's James Bennett never materialized, as Bennett weighed in at 195 and pinned Brad Winegardner.
I did see the Lions' 55-9 victory over Osbourn Park (Va.), which was probably the third-best team in the event. The Yellow Jackets had a returning state champ in 113-pounder, but Ridge's Blake Dunlap did a nice job against him, losing just 8-3. Osbourn Park's other stud, Alex Gowers beat Conner Buttry 8-1 at 160, although that score is misleading. It was 2-1 in the third period, when Buttry let him up to try to tie it but gave up a late takedown and three backpoints.
Below is a list of all of the dual-meet scoes, with links to NWCA boxes where available, and complete results for Chestnut Ridge and Berlin Brothersvalley, if I could get them.

  1. Do you have a CR/Osbourne Park score?

  2. Can you post the results by weight of the ridge and hyndman match

  3. Ridge put a beatdown on Osbourn Park. The Virginia school had studs at 113 and 160, but neither could get a major. I was taking photos and not writing down individual results, but I'm thinking the only other Ridge loss might have been Hillegass. (I apologize in advance to Colby if I'm wrong about that). I was also sitting behind the scoreboard.
    As far as the individual results, I was able to get the first Berlin one because they had a break after their first-round match, but I wasn't able to get caught up on any other Ridge or Berlin matches because they were going straight through after that. I'll probably have to wait until they're posted on NWCA to get full results.

  4. I did ask Ryan Spring about the potential Albright-Bennett match, but it didn't happen. He said Bennett went at 195 and pinned Winegardner.

  5. what about shields for southern huntingdon on your scouting report

  6. Definitely should have been on there. I had been told earlier that he had been out and somehow overlooked him when I browsed the NWCA site. He's the best on Southern Huntingdon and arguably the best in the tournament.

  7. thanx Eric i appreciate that (proud parent) love your blogspot
