Laker wrestlers fall to Clackamas
The Lake Oswego wrestling team held its own against powerful Clackamas in its league opener last week. The Lakers went toe to toe with the Cavaliers, winning four matches on the night but the middle of Clackamas's line-up proved difficult to contend with and Clackamas came away with the 52-24 victory.
One of the best matches of the entire evening came at 106 pounds. The Lakers' Hayden Hanson gave Clackamas's Brian Pham all he could handle before dropping a tight 7-6 decision.
Lake Oswego would pick up its first win of the night in the next match and did so in dramatic fashion.
The Lakers' Max Fox put together a technically solid match and would come up with an important pin with just four seconds remaining in regulation.
At 126 pounds, Cahleb Gonzales made quick work of his opponent, needing just 41 seconds to come up with a pin.
Lake Oswgo held a slim lead at that point but Clackamas then ran off five consecutive victories.
Brian Fay lost a tough battle to Matt Miller 6-3 at 138 pounds and Ethan Waggoner went the distance at 152 pounds, losing 14-6.
The Lakers got back in the win column at 170 pounds when Mack Tenneson picked up a pin late in the first round against his opponent.
Two matches later, Brandon Emmert tallied a second-round pin against Cam Ewry.
At 220 pounds, Lake Oswego's Paul Carlson and Clackamas' Kyle Aneregg battled back and forth and eventually went to overtime where Anderegg came up with a pin.
The Lakers will wrestle at the Oregon Classic this weekend.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
