Ram wrestling starts 2-0

The Shelbyville Ram wrestling team opened their 2103-14 season with a pair of home wins on Tuesday. Shelby beat Cumberland, 72-6, and #5-ranked Litchfield, 42-33.

Shelbyville was missing one of their best wrestlers, Wyatt Fox, not back yet from injury and had to give away a weight class due to an injury earlier in the evening. Litchfield had two forfeits. Shelby won eight matches in the nightcap and Litchfield six.

Keys to the win was transfer student Trevor Brown getting a 1st period pin and Jared Finley coming back to get a win. Adam Hudson won 1-0 on an escape in a 6:00 defensive wrestling battle. Also key was Lucas Duckett, not only winning, but getting a pin. Those wins tipped the scales for Shelby against the Panthers.

In the opening match against Cumberland, Shelby dominated. The only match the Rams lost was lost due to injury with the Ram in the lead. Shelby scored 6 points in 10 of the matches they won, six of them pins.

Against Cumberland, the Rams worked on racking up points. Zack Stirrett (106) had six take downs, before pinning his foe halfway through the 1st period. First-year wrestler Lyle Jefson (113) had over 10 take downs and let his man up only to take him down again, as he got some work in and won his first match, 25-14.

After Trevor Brown (120) won a forfeit, Garrett Brachbill (126) found himself in a war. Brachbill faced a stronger opponent, who countered whenever Brachbill made a move and turned it on him, much like former star Dalton Brown’s final state championship match a few years ago.

Brachbill came back from a 1st period deficit, 4-2. Despite a take down in the 2nd he trailed 6-4 heading into the 3rd. He worked a reverse at 1:45 left. He tied it at 7-7 to force overtime.

The first OT saw near take downs with both men escaping before the sudden death score. The 2nd OT there was no score. In the 3rd OT, Brachbill finally converted a difficult take down and got the 9-7 win.
