N. Carroll routs Frederick, 48-9 Wrestling

December 17, 1992|By Jeff Seidel | Jeff Seidel,Contributing Writer

FREDERICK -- The North Carroll wrestling team showed up a little late last night. Frederick probably wishes the Panthers didn't show up at all.

No. 5 North Carroll won the first eight bouts, jumped to a 40-0 lead and rolled to a 48-9 victory over host Frederick in a Central Maryland Conference match last night.

The Panthers, ranked seventh in the Maryland State Wrestling Association poll, gave the Cadets (ranked ninth) few opportunities. They took all of the suspense Wrestling

out of the match with a quick start and clinched the victory with five bouts to go before Frederick even scored a point.

"The kids did a great job," said North Carroll coach Dick Bauerlein. "The matchups worked out."

Bauerlein was a little concerned about moving up Doug Dell from 103 to 112 and Jeremy Myers from 112 to 119. The concern was unwarranted.

North Carroll (2-0 overall, 1-0 in conference) started the match with some good performances. Frederick (1-1, 0-1) forfeited to Dave Traenkner at 103 pounds. Then, Dell (112), ranked third in the state by the MSWA at 103, scored a tough 5-2 victory over Frederick's Sam Henry.

Henry's late first-period takedown gave him a 2-0 lead. Dell (5-0) tied it with a reversal with two seconds left in the second period and won with a near-fall with 23 seconds left in the match.

Myers (119), ranked first in the state, then improved his record to 5-0 with a 6-5 decision over second-ranked Tim Novak in a battle of defending state champions. The match started quickly, as both scored early, but Myers soon gained control and took a 6-3 lead with a second-period reversal.

Novak then cut it to one with a reversal near the end of the period. Myers held on in the third period, as Novak almost escaped to tie it several times, including a failed attempt with seven seconds left.

"Going into that third period only up by a point, that was really scary," said Myers. "I was trying to get him flat and try to work him on to his back."

Frederick finally got on the board when Randy Suter (160), ranked fifth in the state, scored a 6-3 decision over Shawn Utz. Chris Boog (171) answered for North Carroll with a 13-0 rout of Alan Linton.
