Eagles edge Warriors


When all was said and done, the Danville Warriors wrestling team came out with the short end of the stick Wednesday night. The visiting Warriors were unable to overcome a tough Zionsville team, losing 34-30.

Danville won six of eight matches on the night, but it was the couple that got away that made the difference between victory and defeat.

“We’re past the point of moral victories,” Danville coach Steve Pugliese said. “We did not count on losing between 126 to 138. The hardest part is learning how to finish and we talk about it every day and we didn’t do it tonight.”

Danville was leading in both its 126- and 132-pound matches but let the bouts slip away.

Zach Skinner (126) put up a tough fight against Zionsville sophomore Matt Kern, leading the match after the first period, but Kern scored a reversal and back points after tying it up at 4-4 and went on to an 8-6 victory.

Isaiah Scherrer (132) took on Kern’s twin brother, Sam, in the ensuing match and jumped out to a 4-1 advantage. But like Skinner, Scherrer faltered in the third period, giving up an escape and takedown and took a one-point, 5-4 defeat.

At 138, senior Jordan Shearin wrestled a tough match against Zionsville freshman Tyler Glenn and also came up a point short with a 4-3 loss.

Other matches came down to an extra point either way and the Warriors made up a little ground on the Eagles.

“I’m a little disappointed in that aspect,” Pugliese said. “We have to wrestle six minutes hard. We go hard but we’ve got to be more efficient with what we’re doing. They wrestled hard and I have no complaints with that.”

Zionsville’s Jacob Aven (220) scored a takedown with time expiring on Chris Peterson and took a 12-5 decison to win by major decision, earning the Eagles an extra point.
