WNY Wrestling Round-Up: Week 6

Dual results for the week of Wednesday, January 2nd – Thursday, January 3rd.

Wednesday, January 2nd 2019

St. Francis 51 – Canisius 28

After a long trip back and forth to Orlando, ten duals wrestled, and little time to prepare the Red Raiders won their second MMHSAA dual of the season and improved to 18-7 overall. Nine Raiders won matches on the night including six pins. The Crusaders fall to 2-1 in the league and 9-2 overall. Both have dates with St. Joe’s left on the schedule.

Tonawanda 60 – Alden 8

The #7 Warriors sit alone atop the ECIC III standings now 4-0 in league wrestling. Eden, Maryvale, and Cheektowaga stand between Tonawanda and its first league title since 2014-2015 (shared with Eden).

Eden 42 – Lackawanna 33

The Raiders and Steelers met for the second time this season and Eden was victorious again. Eden (3-1, 11-6) are still in contention for the ECIC III crown with matches against league leader Tonawanda and Maryvale and Cheektowaga remaining. Eden, Maryvale, and East Aurora are all 3-1 in the league.

East Aurora 45 – Maryvale 33

The #9 Blue Devils helped themselves stay in the ECIC III conversation by taking down the 3-0 in league Flyers. Both squads are 3-1 in the league. East Aurora has wrestled the other two league leaders (Tonawanda, Eden) already and will need to win out and get help if they’re to win the league title. The Flyers are still alive but have tough duals with Eden and Tonawanda on the horizon. Hats off to both squads for only one forfeit on the evening.

Pioneer 59 – Williamsville South 12

The #2 Panthers move to 3-0 in ECIC II and 17-3 overall. The Panthers travel to Pendleton to take on the 4-0 Starpoint Spartans then host the #3 Chiefs next Tuesday, January 8th for an ECIC II showdown.

Iroquois 50 – Amherst 31

#3 small school Iroquois gained ground in ECIC II with a win over #9 large school Amherst on Wednesday. The Chiefs are now 4-0 in the league and on a collision course with Pioneer for Tuesday, January 8th in Yorkshire. Iroquois is 12-1 overall while Amherst drops to 7-9. With five out of eight teams ranked and four teams with double digit wins ECIC II is brawl.

Clarence 52 – Williamsville North/East 25

The #3 Red Devils won ten out of fifteen bouts to improve to 4-0 in ECIC I and 15-1 overall. Head coach Jason Chase has his team in position to be a lock for a top four seed at the Section VI Duals on Saturday the 19th. A win at #7 Hamburg next Wednesday should help the cause. Only one forfeit in the dual.

Lancaster 51 – Frontier 26          

The #4 Legends produced another league win against a solid Frontier Falcons team winning ten of fifteen bouts. Frontier is a bubble team to make it into the Duals and will need a win against Williamsville North/East next week to help make the case to get in. The best part of the match? NO FORFEITS.

Orchard Park 56 – Jamestown 23

After taking on league rivals #3 Clarence, #4 Lancaster, and #7 Hamburg all before Christmas, the up and coming Quakers earned their first ECIC I win of the season in Jamestown. The 10-7 Orchard Park squad has league duals with West Seneca, Williamsville North/East, and Frontier left on the schedule and have a real chance to go end the league season 4-3 after starting 0-3.

Other Wednesday night scores:

Lyndonville (V) 49 – Barker/Royalton-Hartland 21

Cheektowaga 42 – Springville 31

Thursday, January 3rd 2019

Pioneer 53 – Starpoint 19

The #2 Panthers extended their five year (going on sixth) league unbeaten streak now at 41-0 in that time to take down the 4-0 #8 Spartans in an ECIC II dual in Pendleton. Pioneer and #3 Iroquois both sit at 4-0 in the league with a showdown looming on Tuesday, January 8th that in all likelihood will decide the ECIC II league title. The Panthers move to 18-3 overall while the Spartans fall to 11-6. Also…NO FORFEITS by either team.

Fredonia 63 – Southwestern 21

The #4 Hillbillies earned their third CCAA Div. I win of the season to move to 3-0 in the league and 12-5 overall. Fredonia, Olean, and Falconer are all now 3-0 in league action. Fredonia will get a chance to knock off both Olean and Falconer at home on Weds 1/9 and Weds 1/16, respectively, in pursuit of the division title.
