Bears are 8-1

Thursday, December 5, 2013 - by B.B. Branton

The rivalry is back.

For the first time in 20 years, two long time wrestling powers in Bradley Central and McCallie met in a dual with host Bradley claimed an exciting, 33-31 win.

The fans got their moneys worth as two state champions (one from each school) lost and three matches were one point decisions.

"Of course, it is a great win for Bradley Central and this match and rivalry is good for both schools and the sport of high school wrestling," said Bradley Central coach Ben Smith.

 "I wanted our guys to be in this type match early in the season with a cheering crowd and where so many matches came down to one reverse or takedown in the third period," Smith stated. "Later in the season our guys will hopefully remember this atmosphere and make that big move to win a key match for us."

Bonus Points; With both teams winning seven matches, the host Bears won it on bonus points with four pins while McCallie had three pins and a major decision.

Big Lead: The Bears jumped out to a 15-0 lead after three matches, including falls by Nathan Adams (170) and Ryan McElhaning (106), but McCallie then won six of the next seven matches for a 25-18 lead (Sam Harrelson (138) and Adam Connell (145) recorded falls), with four weights remaining. But the Bears won three of four for a two-point triumph. 

State Champs Fall: McCallie's Addison Cornell edged D-I state champion Torbio Navarro, 4-3 at 113 ...

The Bears clinched the match when Zach McFarland scored five points in the third period to edge D-II state champ Nathan Hoodenpyle, 8-3 for an insurmountable 33-25 lead with one match remaining.

"Our effort was great in our first match of the season and the mistakes we made can be corrected," said McCallie coach Mike Newman.
