Horde takes home triple win

B y Jaime Thomas

The Granville wrestlers pocketed a triple win two weeks ago against several Vermont schools.

In a nearly event-less win on Jan. 30, the Horde racked 48 points against Springfield, whose lack of competitors gave up a large number of forfeits to Granville.

Only one actual duel took place, during which Anthony Arbuckle pinned Springfield’s Joe Behsmann in 3 minutes and 29 seconds in the 220 class.

The same day, five Granville grapplers won by pin to seal a 54-6 victory over Burr and Burton. The Horde’s Daegan Jones, 132, took town Sean Armstrong in just 31 seconds, a quick feat that was followed closely by Anthony Arbuckle, 195, who stopped his opponent, Mark Langlois, short in 39 seconds.

A number of single and double forfeits prevented the rest of the boys from competing, and at 126, Austin Perry fell to Ray Gormley.

In a duel that brought a little more action, Granville took down Mill River 31-15 during the same match. At 145, Mathew Decker snagged a major 15-7 decision over Mill River’s Caleb Purinton. Zach Devino also won by decision over Caleb Bosch at 285.

Daegan Jones, Benjamin Fox, Bradley Perry and Devin Cohan all pinned for the Horde.
