Opening night at WJ, ahh the memories. Got off to a good start by seeing Adam Seidman and Jim Douglas. Blair’s experience showed through and WJ’s new varsity kids had a rough debut.

The match started at 106 where Blair’s McCaw may have given up some size but came out as the aggressor with shot after shot vs last year’s Jv champ Ibrahim Mohammed. The majority of the rest of the match saw McGaw going crossbody on top and actually locking up a guillotine in the 3rd period for the pin. Blair 6-0.

At 113, WJ senior veteran, Andrew Masison took the action to Muhammad Baig on his feet with numerous takedowns and scored several turns, but couldn’t put him away. Tech fall, 19-4. Blair 6-5.

Blair’s Ryan Handel had a convincing pin over Michael Baumel at 120 to make it 12-5.

At 126, Blair bumped up Barik Tona away from Kemper Stearns for a WJ forfeit. Blair 12-11.

That’s as close as it would get as Barik Tona would avoid a head and arm attempt and survive a successful full Nelson from Ben Lintjewas for a 7-2 decision at 132 lbs. Blair 15-11.

At 138, a couple double legs to the back from the Blazer’s Bryan Hunh, built up a 10-1 lead before an eventful half nelson notched a pin over the Wildcats’ James Quartey. Blair 21-11.

WJ’s Jacob Bernstein bumped to 145, to stop Blair’s run with a tech fall over what I believed to be one of Blair’s Jv kids, Blair 21-16.

Blair bumped Noah Chopra-Khan to 152 to gain the quick chin and wing pin over Matt Flynn. 27-16.

This sent Ryan Holland to 160 to face WJ’s Kenneth Kang. Ryan hit an early fireman’s and poured it on from there. Kang fought hard to keep it to a 14-1 major. Blair 31-16.

170 saw Blair’s Pelimu Akinpelu demonstrate strength and athleticism on his feet, but with little success on top, proceeded to a 15-4 major decision over Socrates Kostanos with takedowns galore. Blair 35-16

182- WJ’s Sam Leaman put up quite the fight versus regional placer Leo West, only losing by a margin of 6-3, despite being bear hugged twice. 38-16 Blair

195- Slide byes and some nice mat returns highlighted Blair’s Joey Paulino’s 12-5 decision over Michael Hedge. 41-16 Blair

220- State Qualifier Rudy Ngougni pinned Patrick O’Neill to make it 47-16 Blair.

At Hwt, WJ’s Leo Saucedo stopped Mervin Mancia’s early head and arm attempt to gain the first takedown and hold a 2-1 lead heading into the 2nd period. Saucedo had some difficulty getting out until he tried to force a Peterson by reaching back too much and got caught on his back for a 2 count. 3-2 Mancia. Leo would eventually escape to tie at 3-3 heading into the 3rd period. Mancia took down, escaped to go up 4-3. Saucedo would subsequently force a shot, get spun on with a wing/arm up and get put right to his back for the stick. Blair 53-16.
Look out for Blair. See you all at Mad Mats.

P. S. Shout out to Blair’s Luke Merrill on his first Jv win.
