#NEDailyRdp: January 27

MIDDLEBURG — While the Bronco gym prepared for hosting duties in Saturday’s North Florida Championships in the traditional season-ending competition for junior high wrestlers in the north, the Broncos themselves were getting ready to trek to Wakulla Thursday night.

And Middleburg entered on the right foot, taking a 66-18 victory over Ponte Vedra behind six pins and five forfeit victories.

The Broncos (14-11) took falls from Logan Moore (138), Aden Thornton (152), Bryce Meldrum (285), Jackson Hornback (106), Wyatt Leduc (120) and Riley Girgis (126), with forfeit wins at 160, 182, 195, 220 and 113.

Ponte Vedra (4-18) scored its points on falls from Grady Dolan (132), Andrew Hissam (145) and David Sizemore (170), taking early leads at 6-0 and 12-6.

While Middleburg was at Wakulla this past weekend, Ponte Vedra went to the Flagler Rotary at Flagler Palm Coast.

Union County 53, Palatka 23: At Palatka, the visitors (4-8) used a fuller lineup to take the dual win, even after spotting the hosts a 17-0 lead to start the dual, with six forfeit victories to go with three pins.

Picking up pins for the Tigers were Alexander Cortese (182), Danny Thornton (195) and Kale Waters (113), with forfeit wins at 160, 170, 285, 106, 126 and 132.

Palatka’s hot start was generated by pins from Johnson Session (145) and Hayden Edwards (152), plus a 17-0 second-period TF from Brandon Lewis (138). Ishmael Foster (120) later added a fall for the Panthers (unknown season record).

Union County will be at Monday’s tri-meet with Keystone Heights at Baker County, while Palatka is off until Thursday, when the Panthers will travel to Villages.
