Wrestling teams beats SGF, falls to Corinth

The Whitehall wrestling team’s lone seniors led it to a victory over South Glens Fall last Tuesday.

Trailing 28-27 heading into the final three bouts of the night, Al Aubin and John Diekel won the final two matches to lead the Railroaders to a 42-28 non-league win.

Al Aubin recorded a 7-1 decision at 132 pounds and John Diekel pinned his opponent at 138 pounds to net the Railroaders nine points. A forfeit at 126 pounds gave Whitehall an additional six points.

The Railroaders also got pins from Brandon Steves (170), Justin Eagan (182) and Chad Amerio (113).

Austin Rich lost a close match to Anthony Sgorrano, getting pinned with less than a minute-and-a-half left in the match.

The Railroaders were in a nearly identical scenario on Thursday night against Corinth, but the Tomahawks recorded three pins in the final four matches to pull out a 48-30 win.

Corinth recorded five pins in the match.

Zach Rozell (285), Amerio (120), Aubin (126), and Diekel (138) all won by fall.

Amerio wrestled one of the most competitive matches of the evening before pinning his opponent with 32 seconds remaining in the bout.

The team opened its league slate on Dec. 12 falling to Warrensburg 62-21.

The Burgers recorded six pins en route to the win.

Rich (106) and Diekel (138) won by fall for Whitehall and Aubin (126) defeated his opponent on points 8-3.

Diekel pinned his opponent in 2:51 while Rich needed only 26 seconds to dispatch his opponent.

On Dec. 15, the Railroaders competed in the 20th annual Montgomery County Duals in Amsterdam finishing fifth out of six teams.

Whitehall lost to host Amsterdam 69-15, Peru 56-21, and tournament champion Monroe Woodbury 76-6. They also lost to Ilion but were able to record a narrow 37-36 win over Monroe Woodbury’s “B” team.

Aubin and Amerio each picked up wins against the Peru and Amsterdam.

The Railroaders, 6-10 on the season, travel to Fort Ann on Jan. 2.
