North Florida Matmen staff report
JACKSONVILLE — We didn’t see Raines in the FHSAA dual-team tournament series, and it might have been a bit of relief for 1A-District 3 teams that we did not.
Wednesday night at home, the Vikings, already a force to contend with in IBTs — with the fullest lineup they’ve had this season — showed they have some chops in the dual format as well, taking down 2A-Region 1 qualifiers Robert E. Lee, 49-30.
Jamari Watson (195) and Jamon Goodwine (285) had pins for Raines, while Kyle Hopkins (120) won by a 21-4 technical fall early in the third period.
Lee, whose lineup was backed off some Wednesday night in light of tonight’s Region 1 appearance at Fletcher, scored all of its points by forfeit.
The Generals face Seabreeze in a 2A-Region 1 quarterfinal at 6 p.m. this evening; Raines is off until Friday, when the Vikings make the trek to the Panhandle and Wewahitchka’s Gator Brawl, which concludes on Saturday.
New Smyrna Beach 48, Titusville 21: At New Smyrna Beach, the Barracudas held the visitors to just two contested wins on the night.
Susan Pacini (113), Jace Engberg (126) and Thomas Evans (152) all won by falls for New Smyrna Beach.
The Barracudas are off until January 25, when they will compete at 5 Star Conference rival DeLand’s one-day Bulldogs IBT on the 25th.
Crestview 54, Tate 18*: At Crestview, the hosts won every match between 170 and 285 to take the dual in a matchup between district rivals.
The Bulldogs got falls from AJ Richardson (126), Benjamin Gross (145), Luke Baker (170), Julio Fernandez (182) Kennard Madden (220) and Rolando Hernandez (285).
Both Crestview and Tate are off until Friday, when they will both go to Gator Brawl.
Bishop Kenny 62, Fernandina Beach 13: At Fernandina, after spotting the hosts the first three points of the dual, the Crusaders went on 30-0 and 32-0 runs to take the away victory.
Roberto Cuartero (138) and Michael Bagan (195) had pins for Bishop Kenny, while Carter Wood (160) won by injury-default and Allan Bustos (106) by third-period technical fall. Ryan Mayer (120) added a 5-2 decision.
All of the Pirate points were won in contested matches, with Jeremiah Giedrys (170) winning by fall. Kolby Kidd (10-0 at 182) had a major decision and Jeremy Mahoney (126) won by an 8-4 count.
Bishop Kenny is off until Wednesday, when it goes to Yulee’s quad meet, while Fernandina Beach will be at the Westside Roundrobin on Saturday.
Seabreeze 60, Deltona 24: At Seabreeze, the hosts actually trailed, 24-18, but then won every match between 138 and 195 for the home sendoff prior to tonight’s 2A-Region 1 quarters at Fletcher.
Kayla Nguyen (106), Joseph Kent (113), Devin Stickney (138) and Grant Schwartz (145) all had pins for the Sandcrabs, which closed out the dual with five forfeits from 152 through 195.
Deltona got pins from Luis Vazquez (120), Carlos Pineda (126) and Jacob Swanson (132) to build that lead halfway through the dual.
Seabreeze wrestles Robert E. Lee tonight at 6 p.m. at Fletcher, while Deltona will travel to St Cloud on Friday for the two-day Milton-Winter Invitational.
Bartram Trail 75, Atlantic Coast 6: At Bartram Trail, the Bears allowed just one contested loss, with 12 weight-class wins against the short-handed Stingrays.
Michael Moore (113), Trevor Tagarelli (126), Aydan Nguyen (132) and Stephen Farris (145) had pins for the Bears, while Matthew Tayloe (138) took a 9-6 win.
Atlantic Coast’s John Johnson (195) was the Stingrays’ only scorer, with a win by third-period fall.
Bartram Trail is off until the Orange Park Duals on the 22nd, while Atlantic Coast is off until the Gateway Conference tournament at Fletcher, starting on the 31st.
Pace 46, Milton 12: At Milton, the visitors — with a healthy dose of second-unit kids sprinkled in, in light of the Patriots’ hosting 2A-Region 1 quarters and semis tonight — picked up eight bonus-point wins.
Jonah Fierro (120), Malachi Roberts (126), Kevin Elliott (132), Adam Robinson (145), Jordan Baxter (152), Jacob Stokes (182) and Grayson Doolittle (195) all had pins for Pace, while Camden Friend took a 12-1 major at 138.
Both of Milton’s victories came by forfeits at 160 and 285.
Pace faces Chiles in a 2A-Region 1 quarterfinal tonight at Pace, while Milton will travel to the Smiths Station (AL) Invitational, a two-day IBT, on Saturday.
Wolfson 42, Mandarin 36: At Mandarin, the Wolfpack built 12-0 and 30-6 leads, but it came down to Max Lewallen’s dual-ending fall at 126 that sealed the win for the visitors.
Emarre Campbell (132), Cameron Frison (152) and Dallas Kemp (170) also had pins for Wolfson.
Mandarin had contested wins by fall from Xavier Plumey (145), De’Shaun Wise-Minor (220), Dylan Foster (113) and Ethan Harvey (120). That late flurry of pins from the bookends forced a tie.
Wolfson wrestles Yulee in the 1A-Region 1 quarterfinals tonight at 6 p.m., while Mandarin is off until January 24, when the Mustangs compete in conference rival Terry Parker’s Parker Duals.
