Local Roundup: Bobcats Outscore WMR at Wrestling Meet

WHITEFIELD, N.H. -- The Plymouth wrestlers strong-armed White Mountains, 51-24 on Wednesday to up their record to 8-1, while the Spartans were left at 5-5 for dual meets.

"Plymouth is always a top-three team in our division," noted WMR coach Jarod Mills.

Carson Cape had a big match for seeding and won a 7-1 decision to help his 195 standing. In an all-over-the-mat match, Paul Gesel with headgear often hindering his vision, shut out Scott Hamel to win the 170 match, and Fran Gesel took a little over a minute to gain pin points at 152 for the Regional.

Plymouth had plenty of muscle and didn't need any help, but gained 18 points from three empty slots in the Spartans lineup. Emily Cook (106) was the only Spartan to win by forfeit.

An important win was Liam Hayden at 120. The Spartan was trailing, 9-4 when he reversed to a pin in the third. "He took advantage of an opportunity the kid gave him," said Mills.

Coleton Hogan was up a weight class and fought like a tiger for a 4-0 lead early in the 138 match. The Bobcat wore on the Spartan, who had missed four weeks of workouts with a concussion. Cody Avery chipped away and by the final buzzer snatched the win by a reversal point.

Next is a a meet at Pinkerton in Derry with two other teams from Manchester, West and Central, also there.

BRATTLEBORO 5, SJA 0: In Brattleboro, the top-ranked Colonels improved to 8-1, with SJA dropping to 3-4.

"It was a hard battling first two periods as goalie Ben Greenstein saw 21 shots and only allowed two," Hilltoppers coach Bob Reardon stated. "Coming out into the third period, down one player due to injury, the Hilltoppers came out fighting and played with heart. After suffering two more injuries in the third period, the Hilltoppers played seven players for half a period and Brattleboro capitalized with three more unanswered goals. "Even playing short handed, the Hilltoppers proved that they will be a team that will come out and fight to the end," Reardon added.

No statistics were available. SJA's next game is scheduled for Saturday at 2:30 at Fenton Chester Arena with Mt. Mansfield.

NCU 7, MMU 3: In Essex, Ross DeLaBruere scored four goals and had two assists as the Falcons rolled over the Cougars.

Also scoring for the Falcons were Ryan Paul (one goal, two assists), Adam Viens (one goal, one assist), and Devin Tetreault (one goal).

Chase Lacourse had 12 saves to pick up the win for the Falcons.

NCU coach Andrew Roy said he is happy with the development of Devin and Patrick Tetreault as well as Andrew Gonyaw. With Logan Fortier out sick, Viens and Paul spent extensive time manning the blue line for NCU.

MMU is now 2-6. NCU, 6-1, hosts Missisquoi Valley Union Saturday at 6.


BMU 42, PEOPLES 37: In Wells River, the Bucks continued their improved play with their fourth straight win. "It wasn't pretty -- we were flat in the first half, but then we really picked it up on the defensive end in the second half, especially the fourth quarter, and gutted it out," Bucks coach Brian Alley said. "We didn't put on a clinic on how to close out a game." Free throws is another area in which BMU needs to improve, he added. Aside from that, forward Nick Gordon (14 points, 13 rebounds) played what coach Alley called a "steady" game, and BMU also got very good help off the bench from Nick Russo and Taylor Lamberton.

The Bucks face a big test Friday when they play host to the undefeated Williamstown Blue Devils.

PEOPLES (3-4): Daniel Grimes 1-0-2, Alex Gravel 1-0-2, Jeremy Allen 1-0-2, Sam Weed 3-0-6, Alex Duca 3-0-6, Tyler Beattie 3-0-6, Sam Guihan 4-5-13. Totals: 15-FG 5-14-FT 37.

BMU (4-2): Chris Sevigney 2-2-6, Kyle Farquharson 3-0-6, Dillon Williams 1-0-2, Damian Smith 3-1-8, Nick Russo 1-2-4, Nick Gordon 6-2-14, Taylor Lamberton 1-0-2. Totals: 17-FG 7-16-FT 42.

UCA 55, MASSEY VANIER 29: In Newport, Marqel Taylor-Webster scored 24 points as the Crusaders defeated the visitors from Cowansville, Quebec at the Newport Municipal Building.

"Marqel was a force inside," UCA coach Tony DeLaBruere said.

UCA, which also got 14 points from Paul Saaman, led 25-9 at the half. "The reason we won was because of defense," DeLaBruere said. "We played aggressive, but smart. Any time you hold a team in the first half to nine points, you know you've done a pretty good job."

UCA hosts Cabot Saturday at 2:30.

Azizza Goyette added 14 for Massey Vanier. Hannah Piette led UCA with 11 points.

UCA coach Molly Smith said her team played with more determination in the second half. She also liked the way Piette picked up eight of her points. "She got them inside," Smith said, "which was new for her."

Smith said her team left the game "with momentum for our game on Saturday. We just have to play four quarters of the game," she added.

UCA hosts Cabot Saturday at 1.
