GARDEN VALLEY — The Golden Sierra wrestling team faced a full Lindhurst squad on one mat but a depleted Marysville lineup on the other for Thursday’s double-dual meet in Garden Valley. The Grizzlies fell somewhere in between in fielding 10 grapplers; dropping a 28-24 decision to the Blazers but defeating the Indians 18-6.

Just four Grizzly wrestlers had multiple bouts.

Golden Sierra is coached by former wrestling alumnus Tony Arena whose had to deal with injuries and grades in keeping the Griz intact. Despite Thursday’s split, Arena saw positives.

“We wrestled really well, hanging with Lindhurst, a bigger school, for the most part” Arena said. “I was proud  of the guys. It’s a solid team for the guys who are here and working hard.”

Lindhurst, which brought an overflow of wrestlers, stunned the Grizzlies from the start in pinning Austin Mason (138 pounds) in the third period, Jordan Mirjara (145) in the second and Robert teal (152) in the first for an early 18-0 advantage.

Golden Sierra bounced back as Brian Agee (160) turned his opponent early in the third for a fall but Zander Mishler (170), in a real physically gruelling match, lost a 7-4 decision after tying it at 4s on an escape and takedown in the third.

The Griz fell further behind as Carter Meyer (182) slipped from a late 8-7 deficit to a 16-7 setback. After the Blazers forfeited at 220, Grizzly heavyweight Roger Borba didn’t yield much points but couldn’t score enough in a 6-2 loss. At 113s, Joseph Herrera was locked in a 2-2 match with Tequila Yang before Yang was forced to injury default. Patrick Lewis closed the match with a quick cradle pin 1:13 into the first period.

Mason, Mishler, Herrera and Lewis wrestled again against Marysville. Mason bounced back to pin his man 38 seconds in as did Mishler who went for one move but switched to another to record the pin.

“I don’t even know the name of the move but Dallin Wills (former Grizzly state qualifier) taught it to me,” Mishler said. “It starts with baiting him with a buildup and ends with hooking the arm.”

The Indians put their only points up in pinning Herrera before Lewis cradled his opponent to end Golden Sierra’s night.

“In my first match I knew the kid and what he’d do so I wrestled my match. Same with the second but I was poked in the eye and that pissed me off so I threw him down and got him in a cradle,” Lewis said.
