Results from Saturday’s Warrior Duals

The Warriors managed only one win in the five matches wrestled on Saturday at the field house, and the team’s dual meet record fell to 6-10 on the season as a result.

With Darien giving up forfeits at 7 weight classes, and five of the matches determined on the mat ending in pins, the first dual meet went quickly. Alec Favorolo at 126#, Rocket Thoby at 132#, and Dan Holland at 182# all pinned their Darien counterparts. Ace Sakamoto at 152# won by superior decision, and Jeramy Jeffereis at 145# earned a decision to round out the Warriors’ scoring in the contested matches. Joey Fraccaroli, James Mannix, Jack Walsh, Quinn Reedy, Ken Pokora, Kieran Reardon and Jared Gladstein all accepted forfeits and the team final was 67-12, Wilton. Mason Peraino, Matt Beck and Raphael Mettle each had a JV win by pin against Darien.

In the second match, against Brien McMahon, Joey Fraccaroli at 285# pinned his opponent to start the team off well, but the Warriors only had two other winners – Ace Sakamoto by pin at 152# and Ken Pokora in a back-and-forth decision that ended up 8-7 in his favor. The final team score, including one Warrior forfeit at 220#, was 65-15 McMahon. There were also 8 JV matches against McMahon, which the teams split. Raphael Mettle earned two victories, one by pin and the other by decision; Matt Peraino had one pin; and Matt Beck had one decision win.

In the third match, Greenwich defeated Wilton by the score of 48-29, which included one Greenwich forfeit. James Mannix at 106# started the team off with a close 12-9 decision win. Quinn Reedy added a pin at 120# after recovering from a dangerous situation. Dan Holland won a 7-4 decision at 182# and Joey Fraccaroli added a pin in the 285# class. Ace Sakamoto accepted a forfeit at 152# to complete Warrior scoring. There were no JV matches against Greenwich.

Despite accepting 4 forfeits, the Warriors fell to a tough Masuk team 42-34. Wilton winners on the mat were Ace Sakamoto at 152# with a superior decision, and Jeramy Jeffereis at 140# and Dan Holland at 182# who both won decisions. Jack Walsh, Quinn Reedy, Riley Kennedy and Joey Fraccaroli accepted the Masuk forfeits. Wilton won 1 of 3 JV matches against Masuk with Mason Peraino recording a pin against his opponent.

The day’s last match against Bristol Central ended with the Warriors on the short side of a 57-13 score. Only Ace Sakamoto at 152#, Dan Holland at 182# and Joey Fraccaroli at 285# pulled off wins, with a decision, a superior decision and a pin in their matches. There were no JV matches.

Special thanks go out to the many parent and alumni volunteers who helped out with concessions, the “gate” and scoring. EJ Occhiboi, the Warrior trainer, stopped multiple bloody noses, iced a handful of contusions, and generally kept all the wrestlers safe. Thanks as well to each of the visiting teams and all the fans — as well as Wilton’s custodial staff for keeping the field house clean and ship-shape.

The Warriors’ next competition is a dual meet against Stamford at Stamford on Wednesday night at 6:00 PM. Next Saturday, Wilton faces New Canaan, Trumbull and Ridgefield at New Canaan at 10:00 AM. See you there!
