Memorial wrestlers drop tough match to Midwest City

EDMOND — The Edmond Memorial Bulldog wrestling team welcomed Midwest City for a dual Tuesday evening, and went down in defeat, 44-27.

“We wrestled really well most of time,” head coach Darren Huff said. “We just had a lot of close calls go the other way and didn’t get four falls that we deserved. It makes it tough when you know it’s going to be a close dual before the dual starts. Then the kids put us in position to win and you see that we are pinning these guys but we don’t get the mat slapped.”

Memorial got behind early but battled back with falls from Mark Delay and Alec Warren. Cole Boker and Jonah Moore picked up major decisions, putting the ’Dogs within 6. Midwest City then picked up three falls, one of which the coach disputed.

Memorial’s Tristan McBee gained a major decision, which the coach said should have been a fall as well, and Jeremy Morgan won 4-1 in the last match of the night.

“The guys gave tremendous effort and are getting better each week,” Huff said. “They’re getting more competitive and are starting to focus and wrestle with more aggression. This was a tough loss considering the way we wrestled. You have to have a lot of things go right and do a lot of pinning, and we did a lot of pinning but for some reason we were missing getting the mat slapped.”

Memorial is next in action Thursday at Altus.

  • spts-Will Kropp line up putt.jpg Edmond’s Kropp holds off Cabrera to win in Cordoba

    William Kropp, a 24-year-old rookie from Edmond, managed to hold off local favorite Ángel Cabrera to win the 83rd Abierto OSDE del Centro presented by FiberCorp Sunday.
    His victory at the Cordoba Golf Club, in Cabrera’s hometown of Villa Allende, was his first in just five career starts on the NEC Series-PGA TOUR Latinoamérica.
    “My plan for the first half of the Tour season was to get adjusted to traveling across the region and playing new courses,” said Kropp, who had finished in a tie for third only three weeks ago in Guatemala. “It’s really a great bonus to win a tournament as important as this one early in the year.”
    Kropp finished at 8-under par 276, one shot ahead of the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters champion. Cabrera was trying to win the tournament for the ninth time in his career and he was also seeking to become the first three-time champion on PGA TOUR Latinoamérica.

    The Masters lumbered on last week without two of pro golf's biggest names, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, and fans changed the channel. The PGA needs someone with star power if it's going to lure people back to the game.
