McLane Wrestlers Trounce Warren and
Go 8-0 at the GM Duals

The General McLane wrestling team made it clear they don't intend to be overlooked for this year's top seed at the District 10 AAA Team Duals. They went 8-0 at the GM Duals and trounced defending AAA Region champions, Warren, 43-19 in the process. McLane was red hot, outscoring their 8 opponents 522 to 78 (an average of 65-10).

Hadley Harrison won all 8 of his bouts and earned his 100th career win on Thursday when he decked Titusville's Ben Anderson in 4:57. Kyle Goss put on an amazing performance with 8 wins, all by fall. His last stretch job brought gasps from the crowd. Kyle had a defensive whizzer in on Vincent's DeAndre Bell in the second period of their bout. Bell came up off the mat, when Goss reversed direction with lightning speed and cross faced the Colonel straight to his back.

Ben Rucker and Keith Scharrer also had perfect 8-0 records. Rucker decked 6 of his foes and scored one major decision. Manley Lupher had a perfect 4-0 record, sharing duties at 119 pounds with Joe Zimmerman. Eric Zelina, Shawn McFadden, Lou Decker, Don Osinski and Cyrus Parlin all went 7-1. Decker, Osinski and Zelina racked up 5 falls apiece.

Brandon Saraceno and Jake Carter both went 6-2. Carter decked four of his foes. 152 pounder Dale Sanders also had 4 falls.

GM's overall record now stands at 9-1 after an 0-1 start.

News and Notes:

Hadley Harrison has 101 career wins after pinning Strong Vincent's Tim Meahl in GM's final dual match on Thursday. Harrison also leads the team with 15 falls. Kyle Goss is close behind with 14.

Donald Osinski pinned Strong Vincen't Mark Dombrowski on Thursday for his 96th career win. Donald could hit the century mark at the Tool City Tournament this weekend.

Hadley and Donald also just entered the GM wrestling record books in the Career Falls category. Hadley is number 5 on the list with 50 career pins. Donald is number 6 with 48. Hayden Harrison holds the McLane record with 67 pins.

One of Eric Zelina's 7 wins at the GM Duals was especially sweet. He scored a 15-7 major decision over Franklin's Booby Steetle. Steetle was the 112 pound District 10 and NW Regional AAA champ last year. Ditto for Dale Sanders who pinned last year's District 10 3rd placer, Joe Snyder of Titusville.

Four GM Wrestlers Place
At King of the Mountain

Eric Zelina, Donald Osinski, Hadley Harrison and Kyle Goss all placed in the top 6 at the greuling King of the Mountain Tournament, which was held on Friday and Saturday in Lock Haven, PA. The Lancers ended the tournament in 17th place in a field of 33 tough teams. Last year's AAA state tournament champions, Council Rock South and AA team contender, Bloomsburg were among them.

Eric Zelina. 6th Place. Zelina had a first round bye and then posted a 7-1 decision over Tyrone's Anthony Romano in the second round. He dropped a 7-1 decision to Stuart Rhodes of Holidaysburg in the quarter finals. Zelina rattled off two straight decisions to make the medal rounds. He assured himself a top six finish by beating St. Mary's Josh Renwick for the second time this season.

Donald Osinski. 2nd Place. Osinski advanced to the quarter final by posting back to back 8-0 major decisions. In the first round he defeated Billy Chapman of Hughesville. In the second round he racked up another workmanlike win over Holidaysburg's Ryan Colmer. Osinski shut out Bobby Gulla of Neshaminy 6-0 in the quarters. Donald saw his streak of 10 consecutive shutouts come to an end when last year's regional runnerup, Dillon Evans scored an escape in the second period of their semi final bout. But that was all the scoring Evans would do. Osinski won, 3-1 with a takedown in overtime.

In the finals Osinski came up against Line Mountain's Kellon Balum, who was a 2005 PIAA AA state champion. Donald forced Balum who is normally a scoring machine, to wrestle his kind of match. Balum was only able to score one late first period takedown and a second period reversal to grind out a 4-1 win.

Hadley Harrison. 2nd Place. Harrison scored two falls to move on to the quarterfinals. He pinned Line Mountain's Josh Ngyen in 52 seconds and followed up with a second period fall over Shane Carr of St. Marys. Hadley beat Pleasant Valley's Matt Omdorf, 7-1 and scored a 13-3 major over Holidaysburg's Chris Harr to move on to the finals. Harrison saw his unbeaten season come to an end against Upper Merion's senior sensation, Lewis Baker. Baker won the 140 pound crown with a 19-6 major decision over the Lancer

Kyle Goss. 6th Place. Goss won his first round matchup over Justin Capetola of Downingtown East with a 56 second fall. He dropped an 11-5 decision to Central Mountain's Ryan Maggs to drop into the consolation bracket. The following morning Kyle put together four consecutive wins to make the medal rounds, before losing to Maggs again. Goss was ineligible to wrestle for 5th place, due to the 5 bout rule and ended the tournament with a 6th place finish.

Keith Scharrer, Lou Decker, Steven Scharrer, Brandon Saraceno and Ben Rucker all contributed to the team point total. Steve Scharrer and Brandon Saraceno each had one win. Lou Decker, Keith Scharrer and Ben Rucker each won twice.

News & Notes:

Donald Osinski proved to everyone that he is able to battle with with the best 135 pounders the state has to offer. In the finals Donald kept so much pressure on Kellon Balum that the state champ was unable to mount much of an offense and was even called for stalling in the final period. Balum is normally able to score virtually at will as he did at last year's PIAA AA Tournament where he had a technical fall and 2 major decisions before defeating Reynolds' Matt Dunn, 10-9 in the finals. Donald also earned four more wins which brought his career total to 89. He could hit 100 early in the Tool City Tournament.

Hadley Harrison also added four wins to his career total, which now stands at 94. Hadley could reach the 100 mark at the GM Duals. Hadley also leads the team in falls this year with 8. Don Osinski and Kyle Goss have 6 each.

GM Wrestlers Crush Cathedral Prep 45-18

Ben Rucker, Shawn McFadden, Brandon Saraceno, Glen Sult and Hadley Harrison all scored falls Wednesday evening as the Lancers crushed Erie Cathedral Prep, 45-18. McLane won 10 of 14 bouts and finally erased the bitter memory of last year's two one point losses to the Ramblers.

The match started at 152 pounds where Prep got off to an early lead as Nick Milano and Jason Ardillo posted back to back decisions. Jake Carter got GM on the board with a win over Mike Hayes at 171. Carter scored two takedowns and a third period reversal to secure a 6-1 decision. At 189 pounds, Ben Rucker countered a second period Sean Whalen bear hug with a headlock and stretched the Rambler at the 2:42 mark. That put McLane on top, 9-6. Prep got the lead back temporarily on a Jon Wentz pin at 215, but that would be their last lead.

Heavyweight Shawn McFadden was locked in a 0-0 shoving match with Frank Vento for two periods. After choosing down in the third period, McFadden caught Vento riding a bit high and rolled him through for a reversal and a 2-0 lead. Shawn went right to work from the top as he forced a half nelson, then took the Rambler to his back for six. That gave McLane lead for good, 15-12.

Keith Scharrer increased the Lancers lead with a come from behind, 11-4 decision at 103. Scharrer was down 2-0 after one period, but took Chris Squeglia to his back twice in the 2nd for an 11-4 lead. Cyrus Parlin also scored a come from behind win over Rocco Welleck at 112. Welleck got the first takedown, but those were the only points Parlin would give up. He countered with a takedown and an escape for a 3-2 win. That put the Lancers on top, 21-12.

The Ramblers got their last win at 119 when Steve Zoni scored a fall. At 125, Eric Zelina used two first period takedowns to upset Prep's state qualifier, Joe McCullough by a 5-3 score. McCullough wasn't able to generate any offense against Zelina and his only points came from two escapes and a penalty point (due to a very authoritative Zelina crossface).

Brandon Saraceno brought the GM fans to their feet when he countered an Anthony Blaczcyk takedown attempt with a headlock and decked him in 58 seconds flat. That made the score, GM 30 Prep 18. Glen Sult saw action for the first time this year and didn't disappoint the McLane contingent. He took a 2-0 lead with a very nice double leg takedown, then used a power half to flatten Sean Obringer at the 1:23 mark. That ran GM's lead to 36-18.

Don Osinski continued his winning ways by dominating Paul Squeglia at 140. Osinski hit an outside single in the first period. Squeglia tried to flee the mat, but Donald dragged the Rambler back in bounds to finish the takedown. In the second period Osinski escaped quickly and hit a low double leg to take a 5-0 lead. Donald spent the entire third period trying to turn Squeglia to his back, but the game Rambler wouldn't budge. Hadley Harrison made short work of Randall Wagner at 145. Hadley scored a team leading 11th takedown, then used an airplaine and a half nelson to finish off Wagner in 52 seconds. Final score GM 45 Prep 18.

The Lancer matmen will be back in action at the King of the Mountain Tournament this Friday and Saturday.

News and Notes: Hadley Harrison's pin over Randall Wagner was the 41st of his career. The win was his 90th. Hadley more than likely would have more than 100 wins at this point if it had not been for a shoulder injury he suffered during his sophomore year. He missed 10 to 12 matches that season.

Donald Osinski racked up his 85th career win Wednesday night. That is an amazing feat considering the fact that he only had 7 wins as a freshman.

G.M. Wrestlers 2nd at McDowell Tournament

Led by finalists Eric Zelina, Donald Osinski, Hadley Harrison and Kyle Goss, General McLane improved on last year's 3rd place finish by tying for the runnerup spot with Port Allegheny at Saturday's McDowell Tournament. Grove City was this year's team champion.

Finishing first for the Lancers were Donald Osinski and Hadley Harrison. Eric Zelina and Kyle Goss placed second. Louie Decker took third place, losing only his first bout to the tournament's oustanding wrestler, St. Mary's Brad Steinbach (Steinbach finished 6th in last year's PIAA AAA Tournament at 145 lbs.). Cyrus Parlin, Brandon Saraceno and Ethan Polaski all finished fourth.

Brandon Saraceno's tiff with returning state medalist Steve Waite (FLB) may have been the most exciting bout of the tourney (at least for McLane fans). Mid way through the first period, Brandon nailed Waite with a great headlock and nearly pinned the Bison. Waite showed why he was a PIAA placewinner by clawing back from a 5-0 deficit to pull out a 7-5 win.

Eric Zelina had 2 falls on the day and knocked off District 9's top ranked 125 pounder (St. Mary's Josh Renwick) in the semis, by a 5-4 count. Donald Osinski and Hadley Harrison remained unbeaten. Both wrestlers pinned their way through the tournament. Kyle Goss may have had the fastest pin of the day when he decked Jamestown's Adam Duncan in 12 seconds flat. Goss had 4 falls on the day.

News and Notes: Hadley Harrison notched his 89th career win and 40th fall in the finals. Not to be outdone, Donald Osinski racked up his 84th career win and 43rd fall. Osinski's season so far has been a carbon copy of last year's start. Donald hasn't allowed a point to be scored against him in his first 6 bouts. Hadley and Donald will both grace the McLane Wrestling record books in several categories before the end of the season.

The McLane Wrestlers face their arch rival, Cathedral Prep on Wednesday 12/14/05 at Prep.

Short Handed McLane Squad
Loses A Tight One To McDowell

Minus several starters due to the lengthy football season, McLane showed it's depth by nearly pulling out a win against the highly touted McDowell Trojans. The Lancers led 25-15 after the 145 lbs. bout, thanks to pins by Eric Zelina, Don Osinski and a forfeit to Brandon Saraceno. The match wasn't decided until McDowell's John Anthony pulled out a last second 7-6 win at 215 lbs. That gave McDowell an insurmountable, 36-28 lead.

Keith Scharrer got the team started on the right foot with a 10-5 win at 103 lbs. Eric Zelina put the next set of points on the board when he decked veteran Matt Lewis-Jones at the 2:53 mark. Eric was dominating on his feet scoring two takedowns in the first period. He used a picture perfect double bar-arm to deck Lewis-Jones. At 140 lbs. Don Osinski immediately took Johnathon Salmon to mat and pinned him with a bar arm combo. McLane led 21-15 at that point.

Hadley Harrison followed with a 9-1 major decision over Travis Booth. Hadley nearly decked the Trojan in the first period but ran out of clock. Louie Decker won a wild one over Terry Sedney at 160. Decker took a commanding 7-2 lead in the second period, but Sedney clawed his way back to make the final score close at 7-5.

After three straight losses, Shawn McFadden bear hugged McDowell's Charles Wilson right to his back for a first period fall. Final score, McDowell-36 General McLane-34.

The McLane grapplers will be back in action on Saturday at the McDowell tournament.
