Wednesday, December 18, 2013 - by Special to the Chattanoogan.com

The Walker Valley Mustangs were in the pinning mood in their wrestling match at home Tuesday night against the William Blount Governors.

Recording nine pins among their 12 wins, the Mustangs got pins in the first four matches and never looked back en route to a convincing 64-12 victory.

Robert Varner, Zane Smith, Elijah Earls and Ed Johnson got the winners off and running while Joseph Munoz, Tyrus Hamrick, Tanner McGuire, Ryan Hager and Lawrence Cotton all won by pin before the match ended.

Three of those pins were in the first period with Smith's being the quickest at 17 seconds in the 113-pound match.

Ric Kennett also won by major decision while Billy Raulston and Zach Miller both prevailed by regular decision.

William Blount's only points came by an injury default to Danny Jensen at 132 and Xavier Satterfield's pin at 220.
