“Let the community know that we are wrestling for the Valley League title on Senior Night next Thursday. We are wrestling for an undefeated record in league matches. It should be epic,” said coach Steve Koch after his Bulldogs mauled Orange Glen 61-12 in the Dawg House to set up the showdown against Del Norte High School on Thursday, Feb. 7.

The Orange Glen match started off with Noah Lagoe (106) sending a message to the Patriots. Lagoe entered the third period trailing 10-3 and then made a comeback effort. Lagoe scored 11 points in the final two minutes and lost a 15-14 decision to Tyler Sanfilippo. Then the Bulldogs won 11 of the remaining 13 bouts.

Logan White recorded the first of four Bulldog pins as he beat Orlando Garcia (115) in 5:46. Orange Glen defaulted the 122 bout to Vince Adair.

Martin Dowers (128) lost a 1 point decision to Tomas Gonzalez to make the score 12-6. From then on it was ugly.

Kevin Conroy won by forfeit for the fourth week in a row in the 134 bout. Arturo Osorio (140) made short work of Alberto Garcia by pinning him in 1:35.

Jake Ohnysty bettered Osorio’s pin time by beating Carlos Jimenez in the match’s fastest pin at 1:22. Troy Jordan won by default in the 134 bout to make the score 36-6.

Jacob Grybow tried to better Ohnysty’s fastest pin but just fell short as he beat Omar Bernal by fall in 1:24 to ensure the win. Austin Koch then won a major decision over Gerson Tobar to make it a 46-6 match.

Josh Allen received Ramona’s fourth forfeit in the 197 bout. Zach Berg hung on to beat Jacob Kremmel 2-1 in the 222 bout.

Trae Rodriguez gave Mario Williams a 20-pound weight advantage and almost recorded a pin in the first period. But Williams rallied and won by fall to make the final score 61-12.

Senior Night’s first varsity bout will start at 7 p.m. as the Bulldogs will wrestle for a league title and to get ready for the CIF Championships on Feb. 16 at Cathedral Catholic High School. Then it is on to the Masters on Feb. 22-23, and the team hopes to compete at Bakersfield’s Rabobank Arena on March 1 and 2.
