TALLAHASSEE — Not all Senior Nights go the home side’s way.
Thursday night at Florida State University School, the host Seminoles, after breaking out to an early 9-0 lead against crosstown rival Chiles, couldn’t hold down the Timberwolves as they romped out to nine straight weight-class wins in a 60-15 win over Florida High.
Along with earlier outcomes in the season, Thursday night’s win made Chiles the Tallahassee city champions for the 2021-22 season.
Florida High (4-6 in duals for the season) gained that 9-0 early advantage thanks to Collin Bishop’s dual-opening shutout, 6-0, at 285, followed by a forfeit win at 106.
But eight pins and a decision later, the dual was well and truly clinched. Those eight falls were all back-to-back, with Sam Tolomeo (113), Everett Stewart (120), Garrett Marschka (126), Hunter Brown (132), Preston Scoggins (138), Jacob Johnston (145), Andrew Mullins (152) and Luke Pickels (160) stacking them up, followed by a 7-2 decision win for Kadis Nafal at 170 for the Timberwolves.
The Seminoles stopped the run with Xander Hawkes’ pin at 182, the lone pin that Florida High would get on the night, but Chiles (10-5) tacked on two more pins from the Elliotts, Cody (195) and Dillon (220), to close out the dual.
The two teams will reconvene on Friday afternoon at Wakulla for that team’s two day Big Bend Invitational IBT.
