GARDEN VALLEY — Golden Sierra’s first of only two appearances on the home mat Tuesday lasted all of three matches.

Visiting San Juan brought just a handful of wrestlers and went 1-2 — the one loss locking up the Grizzlies’ 42-18 Sierra Delta League win.

Forfeits ruled the day. Neither squad fielded grapplers for the 106, 112, 143 or 152-pound weight classes, shaving four bouts at the start. Of the 10 left, Golden Sierra forfeited at 138 and 220 pounds while Grizzlies Brenden Orliczki (132), Jordan Miyara (160), Holly Mason (170), John Grover (182) and Tristin Short (195) went unopposed.

Of the actual wrestling, Joseph Herrera (120) opened but fell victim to Alex Baker’s head and leg pin with 32 seconds left in the first period.

Next at 126s, Patrick Lewis, who also wrestled an exhibition match, built a 10-0 lead on Spartan Graden Norquist before a snap-down led to a pin with 78 ticks into the second.

“Coach told me to drag out my first match to get some mat time so I worked on tilts and other stuff I’ll need later in the season,” said Lewis who balances wrestling with a job at Mar Val.

In the last official varsity match, Will Echeveria (HWT) snapped Brandon Brojas to the mat for the take down and then to his back for the fall 33 seconds after the whistle.

In the exhibition matches. Coy Collins (120) and Orliczki were pinned, Lewis impressed with a 17-2 technical decision and Short used a head and wrist to turn his opponent for the second-period pin.

Lewis is the team’s lone senior and one of five returning Grizzly wrestlers for second-year coach Tony Arena.

“We’re young with a lot of new and first-year wrestlers,” Arena said. “We’ll look to stay competitive the best we can. Mostly it’s teaching them the discipline of the sport.”

Rounding out the roster is Mikayla Schnepel, Robert Teal, Matthew Freas and Elijah Perez-DuFault.

Golden Sierra defeated Encina last week 33-24. Due to a lack of confirmed teams, this weekend’s Dan Arena Tournament has been cancelled.
