Roundup: Chiawana claims Mid-Col mat crown

January 24, 2013 

Chiawana had a slew of wins, quick pins and big points Thursday night.

In other words, it was business as usual in a 52-9 win over visiting Hanford that completed a 7-0 Mid-Columbia Conference campaign and second consecutive unbeaten league season.

Eli Sikes (106 pounds), Chris Montelongo (120), Pedro Murillo (126), Joel Murillo (138) and Jordan Vaughn (195) all scored pins for the Riverhawks, and Clayton Smith netted a 17-0 technical fall at 152.

“It was a great night,” said Chiawana coach Jack Anderson, noting that he got all nine of his seniors in the lineup. “It’s a special group to me, the first group I was a head coach for coming in as freshmen. It’s our first four-year group that’s been at Chiawana all four years.

“It’s the best group I’ve ever coached.”

Among the notable wins for Chiawana was Austen Silvers’ 9-7 win over Will Bishop at 182 in a battle of state veterans. Bishop got up early with a takedown and nearfall in the first period and held a 5-0 lead with time running out. But a late, frantic scramble — takedown, nearfall, reversal, reversal back, nearfall — had Silvers in the lead as the horn sounded.

“It was a crazy scramble at the end,” Anderson said.

Martin Villanueva gave the Riverhawks another key win with his 11-6 win over Jeff Weyand at 285 in a matchup of big guys who are good on their feet.

Hanford (3-4) didn’t come up with many wins, but it did get a couple of good ones, starting with Dallon Grinder’s 11-8 win over Abzael Loeza at 220 in a battle of state contenders.

Also, the Falcons’ Blake Llarenas won a close 4-2 decision over Bryce Buckley at 113. Senior Michael Parkman rounded out Hanford’s wins with an 8-4 decision at 145.

Southridge 44, Kamiakin 33: Trenton Nett set the tone for the Suns with his pin in the opening match at 120, and three forfeits in the upper weights didn’t give the Braves much chance to bounce back.

Southridge, which claimed the Battle of the Bone trophy after sweeping its Kennewick rivals, also got pins from Lydon Reams (145) and Andrew Collins (160) plus a 15-0 technical fall from Danny Navarro at 132.

“Collins did a great job at 160, Nett a good job at 120, Lydon Reams at 145,” said Southridge coach John Hogg.

Despite winning just six matches, the Braves kept the score respectable with five pins: Tyler Almaguer (106), Cesar Castillo (113), Damien Gooldy (126), Harley Kolp (138) and Sisto Santana Pina, back down to 170 where he won a state title last year.

“I was proud of our kids,” Kamiakin coach Jordan Anderson said. “Again, we were giving up forfeits, but we threw some freshmen in there who did really well, some of them in their first varsity matches.”

Pasco 42, Kennewick 27: Timmy Martinez topped Michael Hosfield 8-0 at 126 to complete a perfect 32-0 regular season for a young Bulldogs team that finished the regular season on a high note.

“He finished undefeated this season, but that’s all preseason,” said Pasco coach Jay Covington, pointing toward the upcoming district tournament Feb. 2 in Walla Walla. “Now the real season starts.”

Pasco got pins from Bobby Guzman (106) and James Debosz (182), and a 16-1 technical fall from Jackson Fromm at 152. Covington also pointed to freshman Roman Cortez’s 8-3 win at 220.

Kennewick had some big scorers of its own, with pins from Alex Ramos (113) and Robbie Calvert (285), a 16-1 technical fall from David Ramos (120) and a 17-4 major decision from Todd Pink (195).
