Special to The Sun

EDMOND — The Edmond Memorial wrestling squad took a 60-12 dual win at Lawton Eisenhower on Tuesday.

Memorial started off in fine fashion as Jacob Vana pinned Lawton’s 132-pounder in 1:50, Nick Becker then major decisioned his opponent 13-4 and Jonah Moore pinned his opponent in 4:32.

Lawton then got on the scoreboard with a fall of their own before the Bulldogs went on a pinning spree with a fall at 160 pounds by LaDaryn Lockett, a fall at 170 by Alton Pettit, a fall at 182 by Tristan McBee and a fall at 195 by Jeremy Morgan.

Lawton Ike then forfeited to Korey Emery at the 220-pound spot. Ryley West added a fall for the ’Dogs at heavyweight. Each team forfeited at 106 and the Bulldogs had to forfeit at 113. Ashton Stovall added to Memorial’s lopsided score at 120 pounds with a fall and Cole Boker put on the finishing touches with a technical fall at 126 pounds.

Winning by fall for the Bulldogs’ junior varsity team was Lewis Boatright, while Mark Delay won by fall in an exhibition match.

“We wrestled pretty well as a team,” Memorial coach Darren Huff said. “We had a couple of matches slip by, but our effort was there. Our guys gained some mat experience and just went out and got physical and it paid off.”

Memorial will visit Norman North on Friday night.
