Wednesday, January 16, 2013 – We wrestled McEachern, which is a natural rival for Marietta, but this match was meaningful for another reason.  At the Region Duals, we upset both Hillgrove and Harrison to face off with Kenn Mt. in the finals.  During the wrestle backs McEachern got beat by Hillgrove.  So, we never wrestled McEachern straight up.  This was a chance for us to show everyone that Marietta going to state was NO fluke.  Lose to them and everyone could have made that case on paper. 


Our Devils came through!   Wrestling started at 170 and Lawton delivered 6 pts for us with a second period pin.  Dalton Brans lost a close decision and then Isaiah won a very exciting overtime match scoring a takedown about 20 seconds into OT.  Brandon Hill had a solid decision at 220 and Jeron lost a close decision.  When the lightweights hit the mat, we were up 12-6.  Jason Campbell got a forfeit and then in a shocker, Abraham Leon slipped up and got pinned as did Jelani Miller.   When Brad King came up the team score was tied at 18.  Brad earned a decision 10-9 after giving everyone a heart attack at the end of regulation giving away 4 pts in a close near fall.  Jordan Marion-Plaines won a solid decision 6-4 (close even though he seemed in control the whole way.)  Shomari wrestled one of their better wrestlers and gave up a pin.
We were again tied at 24 all with three matches to go with one of our seniors, Trager Kviten up at 145.  Trager delivered as any departing senior would hope to  – with a very exciting pinfall and put us up 30-24.  Alex Ambio entered the circle with the team meet victory in his control.  If Alex wins – we win as a 9 point lead with one match to go is insurmountable.   Alex not only won, but wrestled a very impressive technical match and got a pin to secure the REAL MHS win.  Jonathan’s match was the last one and he put a great exclamation point on the meet with an 8-2 win.  Final Score – MHS 39-24!  Way to go MARIETTA!!!!!!!
