Results from Saturday’s Warrior Duals

February 2, 2014 Leave a comment

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!

Wilton 33 – Ludlowe 39

January 29, 2014 Leave a comment

Senior Night’s results weren’t quite what we’d hoped for, but the Warriors managed to close the gap dramatically compared to the early season 51-27 loss to the Falcons up in Farmington earlier this season. Ludlowe is very tough at the lower weights, and the Warriors didn’t get on the board until Raphael Mettle, wrestling in his first varsity match, defeated his 145# opponent in an overtime decision. Senior Ken Pokora pinned his 160# rival, and then Dan Walter, also wrestling his first varsity match, pinned his 170# competition. Senior Dan Holland also pinned at 182#. And Jared Gladstein and Senior Joey Fraccaroli accepted forfeits at 195# and 285# respectively.

Thanks to all the parents, managers, fans and friends who came out to support the team tonight — especially to the parents of the senior wrestlers. We’re very grateful to have had you as long as we’ve had you — but we still have work to do, and it starts at practice tomorrow.

Our next home competition is at home on Saturday, February 1 at 9:00 AM. We’ll be hosting 5 teams in a 6-way dual meet competition. We look forward to seeing you all there, and hope you’ll be back to cheer the team on!

Some Changes & Updates to the Website’s Design.

January 26, 2014 Leave a comment

First, please take note of the “New Content or Links” area above the “Virtual Refrigerator” on the right. It’s another a way we can call attention to new content we’ve posted on the site.

Second, number of items on the Reference Pages made it harder to find information there, so we’ve made a new page out of each of the old sections. You can still find a particular item by using the site’s search feature.

Yesterday’s meet with the New Canaan Rams was better than the final score. Wilton forfeited 4 weight classes, giving up 24 points, but won 6 of the 10 matches the teams actually wrestled. Wilton’s first winner was Quinn Reedy who pinned his 106 lb counterpart in 0:53. Brendan Sweeney topped that with a 0:24 pin of his opponent at 132 lbs. Elliot Broach then earned an 11-2 major decision at 152 lbs. Brendan Walsh pinned his 160 lb opponent in 1:35, and then Ken Pokora pinned his in 2:37. The final varsity match was a 19-11 victory for John Luse at 182 lbs.

In JV action Raphael Mettle pinned his opponent in 0:48 to close out senior night festivities.

The next scheduled competition is the Varsity-only FCIAC tournament…if weather permits. We will alert you as soon as we know the status of the competition.
