Everson, Woodford stay alive in Class 2A

DES MOINES – With one goal gone, Brice Everson refocused before the consolations and made sure his wrestling season would last at least one more day.

Everson, a sophomore for Camanche, defeated Nathan Macki of Huxley Ballard, ranked seventh in the state, 15-3 in the first round of wrestlebacks at 126 pounds Thursday morning at the Iowa Class 2A wrestling state tournament at Wells Fargo Arena.

“It feels good to get one win, but that’s not what I came here to do,” said Everson, who lost 15-3 in his first match against Atlantic’s third-ranked Darrian Schwenke. “I came here to win the title. I was a little upset that I can’t get that, but I’ve got to fight back.”

Consolation wins by Everson and Central DeWitt’s Bryant Woodford salvaged the day for area 2A wrestlers after they went 0-5 in the first round.

“I was a little intimidated in the first match,” Everson admitted. “I know this is a bigger tournament, but I try to picture it like any other tournament.”

Everson was in control after scoring the opening takedown 50 seconds into the match against Macki. He added a near fall before the period ended and got another in the second to build his lead to 8-1. He finished things off with an escape and three takedowns in the third period.

“I came out a little flat in the first match. I picked up my intensity in that match,” Everson said. “That (first near fall) was big; I’m never comfortable with a two-point lead. It was definitely a confidence booster to be able to open up like I did out here.”

Woodford, who was pinned in 3:34 by Derek Holschlag of La Porte City Union in his first match at 106 pounds, came back with a 4-2 win in the wrestlebacks against Bailey Tuma of Van Meter. Woodford scored all his points in the first period, with a takedown and nearfall. Tuma scored his points on two stalling penalties against Woodford.
