CLEAR LAKE - Aberdeen Roncalli's duals at the Deuel Triangular on Thursday featured youth against experience.
The Cavaliers lost to Webster by a 61-12 score, and while the score against the Deuel was 39-39, Roncalli was awarded the win due to criteria, based on scoring the first points of the match.
Against Deuel, we knew we didn't match up very well, where they have kids and we have kids, said Roncalli coach Justin Briese, as the teams combined for eight weight classes with no matches.
Of the six weight classes which were contested, Cody Zikmund collected a pin at 189 pounds. The criteria pushed Roncalli to the win when the teams tied at 39, coming down to Brayden Hilton's takedown against Richie Redlin at 119 pounds. The teams had an even number of pins and forfeits.
We really didn't match up well. Their more experienced kids were against some of our younger guys, said Briese. We did enough to win the dual and sometimes that's the way it goes.
Matchups were a factor in the dual with Webster as well, said Briese.
They wrestled some of their better kids against some of our younger ones, he said. Derek (Mitzel) and Tyson (Mitzel) wrestled some of their younger kids. It really didn't work in our favor.
Briese noted that Dalton Cox and Jared McClurg had another memorable meeting at 160 pounds, where McClurg won 3-2.
They have battled back and forth all year, this is the sixth time they've met, Briese said. Dalton has lost them ball, but he's gained a little more each time and gotten closer and closer each match.
