January 14, 1993|By Mike Nortrup | Mike Nortrup,Contributing Writer

Last Saturday was perhaps the biggest day in the history of the Warriors Wrestling Club.

The South Carroll-based Warriors beat Golden Ring, 57-26, and Manchester, 42-38, to improve their divisional record to 5-0 and move into first place in the Maryland Junior Wrestling League's Navy Division.

The win over Manchester marked the first time the Warriors have beaten the North Carroll club. The Warriors, though, were behind after Manchester 85-pounder Randy Holmes' pin put his team ahead 29-7. But the Warriors won four consecutive bouts with Mike Muller (90) and Andy Seal (95) winning on pins and Jason Hamper (100) and Kevin Jeffress (107) taking decisions to narrow the lead to 29-27.

After Eddy Davis' pin at 115 opened the gap to 35-27, Jeremy Lignelli (122) and Justyn Weber (130) won on pins to put the Warriors ahead 39-35.

Colin Eutsler's decision in the 140-pound class narrowed the Warriors lead to 39-38 before 150-pounder Mike Chenoweth nailed down the match with a 9-8 decision.

Kellen Webber (55) and Jared Zillmer (75) also took decisions for the Warriors. Zach Maloff (65) and Clint Day (80) had pins for Manchester, and Manchester's Tyler Alexander (60) won a decision. The Warriors went ahead of Golden Ring to stay when Joe Smith pinned his opponent in the 85-pound class.

Kellen Webber, Mark Richard (65), Zillmer and Lignelli took decisions. Warriors winning on pins were Muller, Jeffress, Justyn Weber, Chenoweth and Chad Counts (140).

Manchester also defeated Golden Ring, 68-11.

Winning decisions for Manchester were Tyler Alexander (60), Fran Jackson (70), James Holmes (75) and Clint Day (80). Pinning for Manchester were Zach Maloff (65), Randy Holmes (85), Adam Boog (90), Dameon Davis (107), Eddie Davis (115), Tony Barbera (122), Craig Hann (130), Colin Eutsler (140) and Jason Simons (150).

* Westminster's youth wrestlers split two matches.

They rallied to beat the Bucs, 48-45, with Jim Sharkey pinning his opponent in the final bout for the winning points.

However, they quickly fell behind against Reisterstown and dropped that match, 48-33.

Despite early pins by Westminster's Dustin Clayton (60), Travis Mohlhenrick (65) and Jim Reiter (85), the locals trailed the Bucs 33-18 after the 95-pound bout.

But two forfeits and pins by Jason Blair (115) and Greg Handley (130) put Westminster ahead 42-39.

It then trailed 45-42 after losing at 140, but pulled out the victory when Sharkey's pin at 150 netted the six crucial points.

Reiter and Dave Spicer (90) won by pin and decision, respectively, against Reisterstown, and Westminster received four forfeits.

* Francis Scott Key's wrestlers had a big day Saturday, edging Back River, 39-37, and topping Baltimore West Side, 69-10.

Against Back River, three Key wrestlers, Nate Yinger (60), Steve Shelley (90) and Matt Yinger (95) won on pins while Tim Owings (55) took a decision. Key also received two forfeits.

They got seven more in the romp over West Side. Also, Brian Owings (65) won a decision, and Darren Hooper (75), Tim Beale (107), Steve Hoff (130) and Eric Houseknecht (150) pinned their opponents.

Women's basketball

The Women's League opened its season Sunday at Westminster's East Middle School with only one team returning from last year.

That club, Spangler Construction, lost, 41-40, to House of Pasta.

Lynn Frost's 11 points led House of Pasta. Becky Martin's 11 led Spangler.

* Louis Myers pulled away in the final minutes to beat Nick's Pizzaria of Hampstead, 34-22. Darlene Cass paced the winners with nine points. Susan Oskin led Nick's with seven.
