Lancer Matmen Go 7-1 at GM Duals

GM Wrestlers Slam McDowell

The McLane matmen, fresh off a championship at the Redbank Valley Tournament looked like they were on a mission Wednesday at McDowell High. The Lancers put together an impressive team effort and ran over the Trojans, 49-13.

Branden Stearns racked up the first win at 189 with a 13-1 lambasting of John Anthony and put McLane up 4-0. After a loss at 215, the Lancers got back on track when Ben Rucker won a major decision over Charles Wilson at 275.

Ashton Osterberg decked Matt McCullogh at 112 to make it GM 14 McDowell 10. McDowell pulled to within one point (14-13) after a win at 119, but the Lancers put the Trojans away for good by winning the next eight bouts, four by fall. Eric Zelina, Hadley Harrison, Brian Clark and Kyle Goss all pinned their opponents in that string.

The McLane wrestlers will be back on the mat four days after Christmas at the GM Duals.

McLane Upset By Corry 34-31

A flat looking GM wrestling team lost a 34-31decision to the Corry Beavers Wednesday evening at Corry High School. McLane was without starters, Manley Lupher, Kyle Goss and Brian Clark.

Keith Scharrer came out swinging and decked Matt Lewis with a cradle in just over a minute at 103. Ashton Osterburg followed by pinning JC Hammond. Osterberg ran up a workmanlike 12-0 lead before he ended the bout at the 5:20 mark. That gave GM a 12-0 lead.

The Lancers suffered losses at the next two weights before Don Osinski pinned Zac Bliss in 46 seconds. Osinski still hasn't been scored on in six bouts this year. Hadley Harrison won by technical fall (18-3) over Brandon Eck at 135 lbs. Harrison used several takedowns and scored back points with a series of bar arm combos. GM held a commanding 23-9 lead at this point, but then things began to unravel.

Corry won the next four weight classes and took the lead for the first time, 25-23. Travis Goss put the Lancers back in front temporarily with a wild 4-3 decision at 171. Goss was down 3-2 with seconds left in the bout, when he hit an outside single and took Smith to the mat for the win. Brandon Stearns scored an 18-2 tech fall over Robert Slava at 189. Stearns looked like a state caliber wrestler as he hit some tilts, a merkle and several single leg takedowns to run up the score.

Nick Roussin and Brandon Edwards picked up wins at 215 and 275 to seal the win for the Beavers.

GM Crowns 4 Champs
Finishes Close 3rd at McDowell Tournament

The McLane Wrestlers finished a close 3rd at the McDowell Tournament and crowned 4 Champs in the process. AA powerhouse, Fort LeBoeuf won the team title with 265 points. Port Allegheny finished 2nd with 240 points and General McLane finished 3rd with 233.

Ashton Osterburg (112), Donald Osinski (130), Hadley Harrison (135) and Branden Stearns (189) all won titles. Kyle Goss (171) placed 2nd. Other GM placewinners were: Ben Rucker (275)-3rd, Eric Zelina (125)-3rd, Brandon Saraceno (140)-4th, Brian Clark (145)-4th, Louie Decker (152)-4th, Travis Goss (215)-5th, Clay Steadman (160)-5th and Keith Scharrer (103)-7th.

Notes from the tournament:

Donald Osinski had an amazing day, racking up 3 falls and a major decision in the finals. Osinski's record stands at 5-0 and he has yet to be scored on. Ben Rucker deserves a lot of credit. He weighed in at 192 lbs. Saturday morning, barely qualifying for the Heavyweight class. Rucker won 3 out of 4 matches against wrestlers that out weighed him by 50 pounds or more. All 3 of his wins were by fall.

McLane Wrestlers Take Prep To the Wire

The McLane Wrestlers nearly pulled off a big upset Wednesday evening, but came up just short as a 33-19 lead over Erie Prep evaporated. Prep won the last 3 weight classes, 2 by fall, to pull out a come from behind, 34-33 victory. But the 2004-2005 GM Team proved they are for real.

Prep led 10-0 after the first 2 bouts. Don Osinski cut the lead to 10-3 with a solid 5-0 shutout over the Rambler's Brad Crolli. The Lancers started to roll and took their first lead, 15-10 after falls by Brandon Saraceno and Hadley Harrison.

Prep went back on top with a pin 145, but Louie Decker struck back at 152 and pinned Prep's Ross Runstedler at the 1:30 mark to put GM back up, 21-16. Clay Steadman wrestled a smart match and gave Jon Wentz, one of the state's best 160 pounders a very game match in a 12-6 loss.

GM was leading by a 21-19 score when they rattled off 3 straight wins and took a commanding lead. At 171, Kyle Goss and Prep's Tony Parsons battled evenly for most of their bout. Parsons escaped to take a 5-3 lead with seconds left, but Goss waded in and threw Parsons to his back to pull out and 8-5 win. Cousin, Travis Goss followed at 189 pounds and decked Shawn Whalen in 3:52. Branden Stearns got the last McLane win with a 4-1 win over 215 pounder, Kevin Deiner. McLane led 33-19 at that point, but the Ramblers came back with just enough to steal the win.

Prep and McLane could very well meet in a rematch at the District 10 Team Duals on February 1st, 2005.
