Huskies split a pair of duals

Cardinal closed out the dual meet portion of its 2017-2018 schedule with a split at Beachwood.

The Huskies fell to the Bison, 38-29, but beat Wickliffe, 39-12.

“That was our last dual meet so it was nice to get a win,” said Cardinal coach Jeff Zeigler. “We had some good matches. We moved some guys around to get some good matchups.”

Ryan Shanower (126), Gene Henrie (145) and Zane Drebus (160) all won by pin against Beachwood while Jerry Rose picked up an 11-4 decision over James Flowers.

“That was a great match for Jerry,” Zeigler said. “We convinced him he had to wrestle tougher opponents all the time, so we bumped him and Zane both. Flowers is a good wrestler and Jerry did really well against him. It was back and forth a bit and he ended up on top.”

Tim Baril picked up a forfeit for the Huskies.

Rose and Drebus both picked up wins against Wickliffe while Devan Baril, Shanower, Henrie, Devan Callison and Trevor Bachna won by forfeit.

Rose won by fall while Drebus defeated Jordin Sidhu, 7-2.

“That was a matchup we were shooting for to get Zane some good competition,” Zeigler said. “That kid beat Jerry twice and Zane twice already this year and Zane came out with a nice win.”

Drebus got taken down in the first period but scored a reversal to tie the match, 2-2, heading into the second. He recorded a takedown and back points to win the match.

Carinal closes out the regular season at the Orange tournament on Saturday.
