For one Wednesday evening, the Liverpool wrestling team would gain a lopsided win, just as its rivals from Cicero-North Syracuse suffered a difficult defeat.
The Warriors ran over Oswego, 60-8, a meet that featured four pins, all of them earned during the second period.
Mike Mills, at 132 pounds, began that work by pinning Jordan Perchway in 3:02. In eight fewer seconds, Brockton Barton (152 pounds) finished off Mike Shepard as Dakota Inman, at 160 pounds, also was eight seconds quicker than his predecessor, getting a pin over Collin Dryden in 2:46.
Connor O’Conner (182 pounds) had the quickest pin, getting his fall over Zack Caruso in 2:21. Darren Breen (145 pounds) took a 6-4 decision over Jordan Attwood as Brendan Corp (138 pounds), Bryan Merrill (170 pounds), Louis Ragonese (195 pounds), Sean Nadeau (99 pounds) and Alex Jorgensen (106 pounds) all claimed forfeits.
As this went on, Cicero-North Syracuse visited Fayetteville-Manlius, and dominated at the end points, only to get swept in the middle during a 42-36 loss to the Hornets.
F-M prevailed in every match from 126 to 195 pounds, nine in all. Some of them were close, as Sam Ruiz (160 pounds) fell to Mark King 8-6 and Joe Copani, at 132 pounds, got close against Pat Quinlan, but took a 6-3 loss.
Four times, C-NS claimed forfeits, to Joe Barber (99 pounds), Joe Mayers (106 pounds), Ray Sorenson (113 pounds) and Andres Anoceto (285 pounds). Jared West (220 pounds) wrestled and pinned Jake Okun in 2:41, with Drew Dyer (120 pounds) pinning Jack Kinsella at the end of the second period.
