MOUNT ORAB — Western Brown showed why it was chosen the top seed in the Division II Region 15-A bracket Wednesday night, defeating Bellbrook and Wilmington to advance to the regional semifinals of the State Duals team tournament.

The Broncos defeated the Hurricane 72-12 to advance to face Clinton-Massie next Wednesday at Western Brown High School, according to WBHS Athletic Director Tim Cook.

“Western Brown is on fire,” WHS head coach Kelly Tolliver said. “We wish them all the best. I’m pretty confident they’ll make it to Columbus. They did a nice job. We’re not there yet.

“We probably would have been better off to be in Clinton-Massie’s position in the bracket.”

Wilmington opened the night by storming through Fenwick 54-24. The Hurricane picked up two forfeits followed by four straight pins to basically end the Falcons’ chances at victory.

“We steamrolled them, basically,” Tolliver said.

In the final match of the night, Western Brown showed its strength and experience against a Wilmington lineup that opened with five of its first six wrestlers being either freshmen or sophomores.

Western Brown won by either pin, forfeit or injury default in every bout from 106 through 182. R.J. Tolliver got the Hurricane on the board with a pin of Aaron Fischer in 15 seconds.

Conner Barton added a pin at 285 over Corey Fields to give Wilmington its second win over the Broncos.
