Though it took place in the latter stages of the wrestling season, Tuesday’s meet at Grovetown had the feel of an early season contest with teams coming off the long Christmas break.

In the quad meet marked by 47 forfeits, Lakeside went home the winner with a 3-0 record. Grovetown was 2-1; Richmond Academy was 1-2 and Josey was 0-3.

“It feels good especially since we’re coming off the break,” said Lakeside coach Brad Freeman, who was worried about his team’s lack of mat time during the holidays.

He wasn’t alone.

“It’s tough to get everyone together over the break,” Grovetown head coach Jay Acree said.

Lakeside and Grovetown got mat time in against Josey and ARC before they met in the final match of the night, tied at two wins apiece.

The Panthers were aided by four forfeits as they beat Grovetown 52-24. They got pins from Tyler Sisson (132), Donald True (138), Grant Plunkett (106) and Samuel Harris (113) along with a Brad Sankey (220) decision to put them over the top.

Sisson earned his first win of the year in dramatic fashion. Leading Asa Debuck 13-10, he left no doubt of the outcome, pinning DeBuck with one second left in the match.

Grovetown’s Daegan Lente took a forfeit win against Lakeside, but got a pin in 56 seconds against Josey and a second-period pin against ARC.

Lente had been running during the break, but didn’t know how that would translate to the mat.

“Honestly I was just a little worried,” said Lente, who was happy the team had practice Monday. “It was nice to get back into the flow of things.”

The Panthers were the first to take the mat and they provided the closest match of the night, beating ARC 42-39.

The Panthers trailed 39-24 before JaVeon Brigham pinned ARC’s Carlos Golatt at 3:51 to cut the lead to 39-30. Lakeside’s Dominick Grizzaffi (182) and Sankey (195) won by forfeit to give Lakeside the win.

“It was sloppy because of the Christmas break,” said Brigham. “Tonight’s meet was more like a warm-up.”

Grovetown took out Josey in the second match of the night 40-24 as the Warriors’ 120-pounder Jessie Maya, who has one loss on the year, got a win with a rare decision. In the squad’s second win of the night against ARC, Maya reverted to form and got things started with a second-period pin.

DeBuck (132) and Ian McDermott (145) also registered pins against the Musketeers.

In the win against Josey, the Panthers got one win on the mat as Brad Sankey, who advanced to the state tournament in 2012, earned an 8-0 decision in the 195-pound class.
