Unatego wrestlers rout Walton

STAFF REPORT

Visiting Unatego dominated the middle to upper weight classes en route to a 50-21 Midstate Athletic Conference wrestling victory over Walton on Thursday.

The Spartans won the final seven weight classes, including two forfeit wins.

The run started with Lucas DeJoy’s 55-second pin of John MacRabie at 138 pounds. Codie Nichols followed with a technical fall victory at 145 over Dawson Beers, and Kevin Thayer and Leland Slawson had back-to-back first-period pins at 152 and 160.

Slawson, a senior, announced earlier this week that he has signed a letter of intent to wrestle for Briar Cliff University next season.

Ryan Marszal capped the run with an 11-4 win over Mike Beers at 182.

Walton received pins from Logan Robinson (113) and Dakota Coffey (132).

Unatego 56, Walton 46

Kellen Komenda scored 14 of his game-high 19 points in the first half as Unatego won its Midstate Athletic Conference opener at home.

Unatego led, 21-7, after one quarter.

“We came out in man-to-man pressure defense and jumped on them pretty good,” Unatego coach Jim Knight said. “We got a lot of points in transition and we got the tempo where we wanted it.”

Komenda, the Spartans junior shooting guard, made three three-point shots.

“We’ve been waiting for him to do that this year,” Knight said. “He’s always a good defender, but he’s been in a little bit of a shooting slump this year. Tonight, he finally started hitting some shots.”

Quinn Barnhart had 13 points and eight rebounds, and Tanner Winchester contributed 11 points for Unatego (2-2, 1-0), which will host Oxford on Wednesday.

Trevor Zandt led Walton with 12 points, one more than teammate Colin Adam.

B-G 65, Afton 40

Lucas Butcher scored a game-high 21 points and had four assists to lead host Bainbridge-Guilford in the Midstate Athletic Conference.

Corbin Palmer and Brooks Harmon contributed 15 and 12 points, respectively, for the Bobcats, who outscored Afton, 18-7, in the third quarter to extend a seven-point halftime lead to 50-32.
