Logansport wrestlers whip Marion 62-15 on senior night

Logansport’s wrestling team celebrated senior night by thumping rival Marion 62-15 Wednesday at the Berry Bowl.

“I was happy with the way we wrestled,” LHS coach Frank Patacsil said. “Actually we had probably three of our varsity kids out of the lineup, and the kids that we put in there stepped up. We bumped some things around to hopefully get some favorable matchups and they seemed to work out for us. It was a nice win for us, but we’ve got a lot of catching up to do from Christmas break.”

James Aho got things started for the Berries with a second-period pin in the 182-pound match. John Ward (195) and Lucas Howerton (220) followed with back-to-back pins to give Logan a quick 18-0 lead.

Justin Porter (113) recorded a pin in 1:55 to give Logan a 24-9 advantage. Jesse Dominguez (120) followed with a pin, and Josh Brandt (126) won a 16-0 tech fall. Jose Salas’ first-period pin at 132 pounds gave the Berries a 41-9 lead.

Ryan Schrock wrestled up a weight class from 138 to 145 and had the match of the night against Jordan Feuerstein. Each wrestler recorded an escape in regulation and it was tied 1-1 going into overtime. The wrestlers also each worked an escape in the extra session before Feuerstein was called for fleeing the mat as Schrock held on and picked up the winning point in a 3-2 overtime win.

“[Feuerstein] was a conference champ last year at maybe 138, maybe 145. He’s a quality kid,” Patacsil said. “We thought we could move Ryan up and get him a quality match. It was. It was a tough match. We need to score a takedown on that kid but we’ll work on that. We’re going back down so we probably won’t wrestle him again, but it’s good experience for him to have to have to go out there and battle in an overtime match to get a win.”
