DELHI — Despite two Friday wins to reach the semifinals of last weekend’s Division V Tournament at Delhi High, Golden Sierra’s Patrick Lewis lost his next two and finished fifth, a spot away from advancing to Masters.
Grizzly Joseph Herrera (113 pounds) was sixth after going 3-3 while Jordan Miyara (152) went 0-2.
Lewis (120) was down 8-5 in the third round of his first match against Linden’s Cody Johnson. He took top and in the last 30 seconds got a power half with a leg ride and pinned Johnson with 15 seconds left.
Lewis dominated his next 13-0 to reached the semis undefeated where he suffered a setback — running out of time in an 8-2 loss. In his next match, Lewis trailed before turning his offense on but it was too late in an 8-5 loss.
Feeling the frustration, Lewis teched Bret Harte’s Alonzo Nalls 15-0 to take fifth.
Herrera won his first match by dominating the Caleveras No. 1 seed. Herrera took Tyler Chavez down and rode him all period before pinning him in the second. In his second match, Herrera was down by two in the second period when he got caught to his back and pinned.
Saturday, Herrera avenged a loss at the league tournament with a 4-3 win over Lindhurst’s Thongsai Thanadabough. He scored a reversal to tie the match and then rode Thanadabough out for the rest of the first period. In the second, they were on their feet in neutral for the whole period but in the third Thanadabough took bottom and escaped before Herrera took him down to win 4-3.
