WILMINGTON — Up 20-0 through four weight classes, the Wilmington High School wrestling team couldn’t hold on and was defeated by West Clermont 36-29 in a tri-match at Fred Summers Court.

Wilmington defeated Bethel-Tate 63-15 in the opening match. West Clermont was a 47-24 winner over Bethel-Tate.

Against West Clermont, Wilmington raced out to a 20-0 lead then fell apart in losing its first non-tournament match of the season.

“They (West Clermont) wrestle a good schedule,” WHS head coach Kelly Tolliver said. “We should have won by at least 10 or 15. I had six weight classes that really underperformed tonight.

“I saw a lot of mistakes from a lot of people that I don’t expect mistakes from, seniors not freshmen.”

In one of the wild matches of the night, Thane McCoy of WHS won by injury default at 113 pounds. McCoy trailed 11-10 after two periods but his opponent ran out of injury time early in the third period.

Later in the lineup, Kile Holland won a 5-4 thriller, recording an escape with less than two seconds to go in his match.

“I saw some good things,” Tolliver said. “This is probably a good time to have a loss, so we can tighten things up a little bit. This is the time of the season when it matters.”

Against Bethel-Tate, the Hurricane turned in an impressive performance with eight first period pins. The match was tied 6-6 with Jaden Snyder on the mat and the WHS 106-pounder began a run of six wins in seven matches for Tolliver’s team.
