Patriots shut out Fair Haven, BBA
BENNINGTON — Competing in a tri-meet between Fair Haven and Burr and Burton, the Mount Anthony wrestling team had a little tuneup on Tuesday before heading to Springfield Central this weekend.
Against the Slaters and Bulldogs, MAU won both dual meets by shutout, 78-0 and 77-0, respectively.
A couple of the matches that seemed close on paper weren't on the mats.
At 138 pounds, Keegan Coon and Sam Worthing met for the second time in three days after wrestling in the finals of the MAU tournament.
After Coon won the title with a pin Saturday, Coon came out aggressive on Tuesday, going up 8-0 after the first period and keeping the pedal to the floor to rack up an 18-1 technical fall.
Another match was the 152-pound bout between Mount Anthony's Stephen Brillon and Fair Haven's Dylan Lee.
The two met in the semifinal of the Mount Anthony tournament over the weekend, with Brillon dealing Lee his first loss of the season against 19 wins.
On Tuesday, it was a different story as Brillon was the aggressor immediately. He got a takedown and then five back points before using his legs to grapevine and then pin Lee with seven seconds left in the opening period.
Other winners on Tuesday for the Patriots against Fair Haven included Jordan Ross at 106 pounds, Landon Davis (120), Kyle Hurley (132), Aaron Johnson (145), Sebastian Peltier (170) and Logan Sprague (182). Sam Wilkins earned a victory at 182 pounds against Devon Withington of Burr and Burton.
Hurley racked up a 10-2 score in his match in the first minute before pinning his opponent with a spladle.
The Patriots have the Springfield Central quad meet on Saturday and then a big dual meet against Danbury, Conn., on Monday.
