Bulldog wrestlers wrangle Cowboys

Moffat County wins county dual, 41-27


Despite wrestling shorthanded because of some illnesses, the Moffat County High School wresting team beat Meeker, 41-27, on Saturday in a county match-up.

The road win moves the Bulldogs' dual record to 23-4 on the season.

"It went well," Moffat County coach Roman Gutierrez said. "We wrestled 11 matches and we won nine of them. I felt good about that."

The Class 4A Bulldogs netted three pins in the dual, while taking six decisions.

"I don't know if there were any close matches" in the decisions, Gutierrez said. "Some of them did go the distance, but none of them were really close."

The Class 2A Cowboys earned two victories off two pins.

Meeker's Jared Doll defeated Brandon Maigatter, 5-2, at 103 pounds.

In the 112-pound weight class, MCHS's Cory Vigil defeated Matt Moody, 7-1.

Bulldog 119-pounder Brice Boiling scored 17 points to Clint Sampson's 2 for a technical win.

Moffat County's Jake Breslin pinned his 125-pound opponent, Pat Love.

At 130 pounds, MCHS's Matt Kincheloe beat Colton Brown, 9-2.

Cowboy 135-pounder Roston Steiner pinned Troy Vernon.

Moffat County's Levi Weber moved up to 145 pounds from 140 pounds, pinning J.C. Seeley.

At 152 pounds, Bulldog wrestler Jake Bricker defeated Nick Smith, 10-5.

On paper, Moffat County's Trenton Duarte, Nick Navratil and Josh Satterwhite all moved up weight classes in the dual but ended up wrestling the same opponents they would have if they had stayed in their normal weight class. Duarte pinned Meeker's Aaron Webster (189 pounds), Navratil pinned Dillon Pierce (215 pounds), and Satterwhite beat Mick Mobley, 5-1 (275 pounds).

The Bulldogs visit Rifle at 6 p.m. Thursday, in a dual Gutierrez said could determine the league champion.

Moffat County closes out the regular season Saturday with a home dual against Eagle Valley High School.
