WRESTLING

D/O-E-SJ 48, Cooperstown/Milford 39

The Hawkeyes owned the lower weight classes, but pins at the four highest classes saw visiting Dolgeville/Oppenheim-Ephratah-St. Johnsville win a Center State Conference Division I meet.

Cooperstown-Milford took four of the bottom five weight classes, beginning with Lowell Wilsey’s win via forfeit at 99 pounds. DOHS earned a forfeit at 106, only for T.J. O’Connor to win via forfeit at 113 for C/M.

Lucas LoRusso pinned Isaiah Rathbun in 1:54 at 120 and Avery Leonard pinned Treay Jaquay in 1:56 at 126 for the hosts.

Logan Cantor also earned in pin in 1:31 at 138 for C/M, while Lucian Lytel earned a 7-5 decision over Philip Keeler at 152 and Henry Loeffler won via forfeit at 160 to continue the low-weight roll for the hosts.

But a forfeit at 170 along with DOHS pins at 182, 195, 220 and 285 was too much for the Hawkeyes to overcome.

The team will host Unatego for a non-league match Thursday, Dec. 19, at Milford Central School. It will be the first time MCS will host a wrestling match.
