Ram Wrestlers Split Opening Night

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Shelbyville wrestling, ranked 20th, opened their season at home on Tuesday night and came away with a split that could have easily been a sweep. They beat Cumberland, 51-24, after getting edged by 12th ranked Litchfield, 42-35.

Shelbyville was missing two starters, Adam Hudson and Jared Finley, and the Rams were leading in three matches against Litchfield, which were turned into defeats by pin. That was the difference in the loss. Had the Rams won one of those matches, they would have upset Litchfield. Shelbyville was more than a match for Cumberland.

The Rams had a few double winners on the night. Wyatt Fox (138) won two decision, beating Caleb Thompson of Litchfield with a reverse in the last 30 seconds, 6-2. He then dominated Blaine Yocum of Cumberland in a major decision, 20-8. Fox scored seven team points on the night.

Lucas Duckett (152) defeated Dalton Davidson of Litchfield by major decision, 10-2. Duckett got a 1st period take down, an escape and a take down in the 2nd and led 5-0 after the 2nd.

He continued to master Davidson in the 3rd. Duckett then pinned Zach Poe of Cumberland in the 2nd period (3:56). Duckett scored 10 team points, Tuesday.

Mitchell Barna (182) also swept the night. He opened his season with a pin of Brendan Chambers of Litchfield in the 1st period (1:50). Barna took him down and let him up three times, building a lead, before catching Chambers and sticking him with 10 seconds left in the 1st period. He then went the distance against Tyler Godden of Cumberland racking up an 11-3 major decision. Barna also scored 10 team points on the night.

Elliott Smithson (285) rolled on opening night, starting his season hit a pin in just 12 seconds over Justin York of Litchfield. Smithson got the take down and his opponent was stuck, badda-bing, badda boom. Smithson then went the distance and out-pointed Kody Coner of Cumberland with a major decision, 10-4. Smithson scored 10 team points opening night.

Freshman Garrett Brachbill (113) also got two wins. He opened his high school career with a 12-2 major decision over Victor Kallaher of Litchfield. He led 4-1 after one on two take downs. He reversed out of the down position in the 2nd and got a near fall to lead 8-1, then another near fall to lead 10-1 after two periods. He then won a forfeit over Cumberland to score 10 team points on his first night of high school competition.

Freshman Zack Stirrett (106) scored the most team points (12) for the Rams on Tuesday. He won a forfeit against Litchfield, then came back and tied Smithson for the quickest pin on the night. Stirrett stuck Kenny Craig of Cumberland in just 12 seconds.

Trey Wade (120) scored 12 points, but didn’t wrestle. He won two forfeits.

Josh Hicks (170) just missed a sweep on opening night. Hicks was up 2-0 against Chase Blankenship of Litchfield, but then had the tables turned and lost by pin (2:51).

Hicks came back against Austin Jamison Cumberland in a 3-period gut-check match, winning by decision in overtime. Hicks was down 2-0 in the 2nd period and broke free for an escape. He then got a take down in the 3rd period to lead 3-2. But, Jamison got an escape and knotted the score. In OT, Hicks got the take down and won, 5-3.

Alec Jarnagin (160) also had a comeback. He led 2-0 against Dolan Davidson of Litchfield, then 4-1 in the 2nd. However, he got caught on a reverse and was pinned in his first match. He came back against Cumberland. He led Dawson Cross 2-0 after the 1st, then got a reverse in the 2nd and turned it into a pin in 2:45.

Zac Isaacs (220) also had a come back on Tuesday. He led 5-0 against Cole Werner of Litchfield in the 1st period on a take down and a 3-point near fall. He led 6-0, before giving up a take down. He led 6-2 heading into the 3rd, but was tired. With 27 seconds left in the match, he was taken down for a 6-5 score. With :2 seconds left in the match the pin was called.

Isaacs redeemed his night against Timmy Caru of Cumberland. He had to take an injury time-out in the 1st period, then led 1-0 in the 2nd on a penalty point. Isaacs finished off the match strong by sticking Caru in the first minute of the 3rd (4:50).

The Rams gave up too many pins on opening night, 11. They lost seven matches to Litchfield, all pins. The Rams lost four matches against Cumberland, all pins.
