Rebels, Indians each score 39

CASCADE — Northeast’s Tyler Schoon opened the dual with a key victory, but Camanche took advantage of a string of late forfeits to earn a 39-39 tie with the Rebels on Tuesday in a River Valley Conference wrestling triangular.

Schoon, Northeast’s lone returning state qualifier, edged Camanche’s Brice Everson 3-2 at 132 pounds. Everson, ranked seventh in the state at 120 pounds, bumped up two weights for the dual.

Octavio Cruz (138 pounds) and Ryan Livesay (145) followed with pins — the only falls of the meet — to give the Rebels a 15-0 lead.

Forfeits were the story the rest of the match — with one key exception for the Indians. At 182 pounds, Camanche’s Damian Sweely beat Eric Eggers 6-4 in overtime.

Northeast earned forfeits in the next three matches to go up 39-15, but Camanche picked up forfeits in the final four weights to pull even.

Cascade, which hosted the meet, defeated both teams in its duals. The Cougars beat Camanche 42-21 in the first dual of the night, then closed the evening with a 46-29 win against Northeast.

“Our team showed improvement tonight in several areas that we worked on in practice,” Northeast coach Ken Schoon said. “Octavio Cruz had a fine night as he worked aggressively to get pins in both matches. Ryan Livesay also did well, as he got a pin his first match and worked real hard not to get pinned, thus saving team points in his loss.”

Alleman tops Fulton

FULTON, Ill. — Each team won five contested matches, but Rock Island Alleman took advantage of four pins to beat Fulton 39-28 in a high school wrestling meet postponed from last Tuesday.

Adam Hodge (138 pounds) and Zach Jenkins (195) recorded falls for Fulton, while Mike Pidde (160) earned a major decision and Jake Hoffman (126) and Steven Balk (285) also won their matches.
