McLane Wrestlers Drop First Dual to Lakers

The Lancers dropped their first dual meet of the season Wednesday to an experienced Laker squad at Conneaut Lake. The Lakers won the first two bouts (189 and 215) by a total of three points. Shawn McFadden got GM on the board when he gutted out a triple overtime thriller over Kris Tursky. The last time the two wrestlers met was in the District 10 semifinals last year. McFadden also won the last meeting in triple OT.

Tyler Bowers scored a 16-1 technical fall over Jacob English at 112 and Cyrus Parlin added a pin at 119 to put the Lancers in front by a 14-12 margin. Lake got the lead back, but Joe Zimmerman pinned Sam Juracko at 130 to put the Lancers back on top (20-18).

Unfortunately, the Lakers ran off six straight wins to seal the victory. Final score: Lake 45 GM 20.

The McLane Middle School team beat the Lakers 37-27 in the opener. Nate Ferrick, Cody Bowers, Ossie Bowers, Tim Wheeling, Clint Goodenow, Nathan Marcinko and Tyler Hendricks all picked up wins for the Middle School.

McFadden Lone Placewinner at King of the Mountain

Shawn McFadden lost his first round bout at the King of the Mountain Tournament on Friday at Central Mountain High, but the big Lancer posted four straight wins to make the consolation quarters. He dropped at 1-0 heatbreaker to Corey Shields of Reynolds, then bounced back to post 2-1 squeaker for 7th place.

Cyrus Parlin was the only other GM wrestler to post a winning record. Cyrus went 3-2, unfortunately he was eliminated one match short of the medal rounds. Freshman, Zach Baumgartner managed a pair of wins before being eliminated.

The rest of the team didn't fare so well at one of the most grueling tournaments in the country. Ten of the 13 Lancer wrestlers exited the tournament with either 0-2 or 1-2 records.

District 10 AA powerhouse, Reynolds edged host Central Mountain by three points for the team title.

The Lancers will be back in action Wednesday against Conneaut Lake. The Lakers looked tough in their recent 43-19 win over Meadville.

Lancers Place 3rd at Mountaineer Invitational

A very young McLane wrestling team started the 2007-2008 season with a nice showing at the Mountaineer Invitational Tournament at Phillipsburg Osceola High School on Saturday. The Lancers placed 3rd behind State College and New Oxford and they did it with 4 freshmen and 4 sophomores.

Seven of those eight 9th and 10th grade wrestlers scored their first varsity wins. Ryan Ruth, Paul Scharrer, Zac Baumgartner, Dalton Lester, Tommy Nuhfer, Doug Myers and Matt Campbell all entered the win column at least once. Scharrer, Ruth and Campbell placed 3rd. Doug Myers took 5th place, but won 3 matches (2 by fall) his varsity debut.

Cyrus Parlin, Seth Stonis and Shawn McFadden took runnerup honors. Parlin scored a big 5-2 win in the 3rd round over Erk Galloway, last years 4th placer at the NW Regional Tournament. Stonis was a one man wrecking crew at 171 pounds. All four of Seth's wins were by fall. Shawn Mcfadden went 3-1 and made the finals with only 3 practices under his belt.

Sophomore, Dalton Lester, freshman, Doug Myers and junior, Corey Goss all recovered from back to back opening round losses to bounce back with 3 straight wins.

The Lancers will be back in action Friday and Saturday at the McDowell Tournament.
