Tomah wrestling outlasts rival Mauston, competes at Wausau Duals

Posted

On paper the opening season match between the Tomah Timberwolves and Mauston Golden Eagles looked to be tilted heavily for Tomah. Tomah then traveled north for the Wausau Duals.

TOMAH 42 MAUSTON 34

Mauston had to forfeit six weight classes. But for the contested matches Mauston used the power of the pin to keep the match close. At one point Mauston had a 34-24 lead late in the match. But the lack of wrestlers eventually caught up to Mauston as Tomah prevailed 42-34 in the battle for the Milk Can. Some key wins also played a role in Tomah’s win.

Mauston wrestlers recorded four falls to offset the forfeits. The teams had a double forfeit at 106 pounds.

At 113 pounds Tomah’s Landon Bloom lost by second period fall to Drake Gosda.

Cameron Finch had his match under control against Mauston’s Alex Suhr before getting a third period fall.

At 126 pounds Caleb Pollack won by forfeit for Tomah.

Gavin Finch made it two pins for the Finch brothers at 132 pounds sticking Alex Zoller in the first period.

Benny Bemis won by forfeit at 138 pounds for Tomah.

Rose won by a 15-8 decision versus Mauston’s Dolata at 145 pounds.

Tomah’s Logan Bolton found himself in a precarious position en route to being on the wrong side of a first period pin against Jackson Whitney at 152 pounds.

Tanner Griffen lost by 8-0 decision to Mauston’s Hayden Koski-Gyllin at 160 pounds.

Dalton Johnson’s 2-0 win for Tomah over Vince Bellock was not as close as the score indicated at 170 pounds. Johnson had control from the start and had Bellock on his back at various points of their match. Just not long enough to gain any back points.

Tanner Mathias lost by a second period fall to Mauston’s Dalton Hoehn at 182 pounds.

Ethan Burch lost by second period fall to Mauston’s Espyn Sweers at 195 pounds.

At 220 pounds (Carter Habeck) and 285 (Harley Antone) pounds respectively Tomah earned forfeits.
