EVERETT — History was made for the Everett wrestling team on Saturday.

For the first time since the Bloody Run Dual Meet Tournament has organized, the host team made it to the championship.

The Warriors gave the highly-touted Forest Hills team a strong final match, but Forest Hills prevailed to capture the tournament with 48-31 victory.

Everett wasn’t the only local team to have a good tournament as Tussey Mountain also went 4-1 with its only loss coming to Forest Hills.

Everett went through the first rounds of the tournament undefeated with wins over Meyersdale (42-29), Central Cambria (48-19), United (69-6), and Cambria Heights (36-35). In the match against Cambria Heights, the Warriors trailed by 17 with three bouts to go. Everett got a forfeit and falls from Shane Clark and Cody Rock to secure the win.

In the final against Forest Hills, the coaches tried to set up some strong matches, and that worked.

After Forest Hills got a fall at 120, Everett’s Evan Brennan got a major decision against Michael Noon, 14-4, at 125.

In one of the top matches of the tournament, Everett’s Garret Cornell met up with Byron Daubert as each of the wrestlers recently earned their 100th career wins. It was all Cornell as he got a takedown in the first period, and he added a five-point move with a peterson roll from neutral postion for a 7-0 lead. He later turned Daubert and got the fall in 3:23.

Forest Hills got a fall at 138, but Everett’s Layne Younker got some of those points back at 145 with a tie-breaking reversal with 10 seconds left against Robert Krug in an 8-7 win.

This set up another high-profile bout with Everett’s Macen Akers and highly-touted freshman Eric Gibson. Gibson took down Akers five times for a 10-4 lead before using a cradle for a fall in 3:59.

That started a roll of four consecutive falls for the Rangers for a 36-13 lead.

The Warriors weren’t done yet. Logan Propst for a third-period fall at 195, while Shane Clark got a second-period pin and Cody Rock added a first-period fall to cut the deficit to 36-31.

The Rangers got a forfeit at 106 and added a fall at 113 to set the final at 48-31.

Five Warriors went undefeated on the day: Brennan, Cornell, Younker, Propst, and Clark, while Akers and Rock lost only one bout each.

“I was really proud of the boys, and we had some guys come out of here with 5-0 records,” said Everett coach Robbie Ripple. “Layne had a super tournament. I think he had four falls in some really tight matches.

“I’m just really proud of them. They battled hard all day.”

The Titans also had a good day. They lost to Forest Hills, 47-24, but followed that up with wins over Greater Johnstown (48-31), Cambria Heights (35-31), and Central Cambria (48-23). They matched up with Central in the final match of the day, which was a 47-30 victory.

The Titans had three wrestlers go 5-0 on the day with Brady Villa, Damon Lemin, and Matthew Watkins, while Cole Weist went 4-1. Villa also had a win over Daubert.

Everett is at Moshannon Valley on Tuesday, while Tussey hosts Claysburg-Kimmel.
