FRESNO, CA.- The Dethrone wrestling club turned in perhaps its best dual match performance of the evening on Saturday (Nov. 10) evening at the Granite Ridge Gymnasium, toppling Red Wave by a 43-18 count after 15 matches.
Dethrone won 10 of the 15 contested matches on the night, getting four wins by fall and the rest via regular decisions.
Team Dethrone started the dual-meet strong at 50-pounds as wrestler Michael Bernabe pinned his opponent in 22 seconds of the second period to give Dethrone a six-point lead on the night. Red Wave’s Noah Martinez cut the lead in half as he defeated Phillip Hernandez, 4-1 at 55-pounds.
After each team won a match in the next two bouts, the score was 9-6. Nevertheless, the critical moment of the dual-meet came at 70-pounds as Blake Trelles pinned Thunder Lewis in the second period after being down in the match 13-2. Wrestling fans in the gym, especially Dethrone supporters, erupted in cheers after seeing Trelles getting the fall.
Other falls in the dual-meet by Dethrone were by Justin Wells (100lbs) in 30 seconds, and Cisco Cabrera (108lbs) in 40 seconds of his match. Ryan Rios (89lbs) was the lone wrestler from Red Wave to earn a win via bonus points.
