Sunnyside wrestlers pin Southridge (w/ gallery)

KENNEWICK — The Southridge wrestling team got some quality wins Thursday night but came up short against the juggernaut known as Sunnyside, losing at home 46-28.

"We thought we had a shot to make it real close and won a couple we didn't think we would and lost a couple we thought we would," Southridge coach Dave Brown said.

Among the Suns' highlights was freshman Trenton Nett's pin of Homer Romero at 113 pounds. Nett finished off Romero in 5:40.

Kevin Del Angel, back from an injury he suffered late in the football season, enjoyed a successful return to the mat. He needed just 49 seconds to pin Daniel Avalos at 182.

"His foot kind of crushed sideways, and those are nasty," Brown said of Del Angel's injury. "They can take a long time to heal, so we're going to keep our fingers crossed."

Connor Rosane gave Southridge a boost with his major decision over David Vidales at 160, but Sunnyside scored big with Isidro Ramirez's technical fall at 138 and a major decision for Miguel Guzman at 195.

"Sunnyside is loaded in the bottom half," Brown said. "They've got a lot of kids ranked in the state in the first seven weight classes. They're a pretty tough team down low and a little better up top than I thought."

Hanford 46, Kennewick 31

Among Kennewick's victories Thursday night were pins from Brice Julian (113) and Robert Calvert (285) and Michael Hosfield's 13-4 major decision against Ben Hoffner -- Hosfield's first match back since sustaining a concussion against Pasco -- but it wasn't enough in a CBBN 3A home loss to Hanford.

"Great effort on the mat," Lions coach Dwane Sitler said. "Didn't show up in the points."

Pasco 48, Eastmont 21

Pasco's Arturo Tejeda pinned his Eastmont opponent in 58 seconds to take a win at heavyweight as the Bulldogs beat the Wildcats in a CBBN 3A meet in Wenatchee.

"He did one heck of a job," Pasco coach Jay Covington said of Tejeda. "Stepped up and wrestled a kid a foot taller and 20 pounds heavier."

Volunteers are needed for next Friday's Best of the West wrestling tournament. Anybody who doesn't mind working a table or stopwatch can contact Coach Covington at 302-1900 or
