Chicks take down Demons in dual

CHICKASHA — After cruising to a lopsided victory over Marlow on Tuesday, the Duncan High School wrestling team gave the Fightin' Chicks a much tougher test Thursday at the CHS Activity Center, with Chickasha coming out on top.

Chickasha won the dual 35-33, taking the lead and the win on a first-period pin by heavyweight Jacoby Brown in the final match.

The dual went back-and-forth throughout, and Chickasha struggled at the beginning with its young lineup in the lower weight classes.

Lamar Neff won the first match by fall with 56 seconds left in the third period at 106 pounds. Head coach Chad Randle went with D.J. Warner at 113 pounds instead of Dakota Resendez, and Warner was pinned less than a minute into the match.

Chickasha won by forfeit at 120 pounds, where Lane Van Schuyver was set to wrestle.

At 126 pounds, Kyle McNatt was pinned in the second period with 56 seconds remaining, and then Denver Calhoun lost an 11-7 decision at 132 pounds to Duncan's Tyler Hicks.

"They're going to have some matches where there are teams just like us with some young guys, and there are going to be some guys with some studs," Randle said of his freshmen. "Some of them have to learn a little more of technique and get a little better, but there is no better way than straight competition."

Randle said he will be selective about when he throws the young wrestlers into the fire, as they gain experience and confidence through the season.

"What I try to do with them, is if I think we've got a chance to win the dual, I'm going to use them one way or another," Randle said. "If there are certain duals where I know they're going to get killed, I won't use them."

David Eakers got the Fightin' Chicks back on track with a major decision victory over Austin Drake at 138 pounds.

Triston Hill lost a 6-2 decision to Connor Kelly, one of Duncan's better wrestlers, at 145 pounds.

"Two nights in a row, Triston had one of their tougher kids," Randle said, referring to Hill's exhibition match Tuesday against Marlow. "That was the coach's son. He got behind early and let the kid get a little physical early.

"Even though he lost, he looked better than he did in the Marlow match," Randle said. "His legs were under him a little bit more, and that's a good thing."Chickasha forfeited at 152 pounds because Coy Richardson did not make weight for the match, but Richardson still wrestled Christian Carnahan in an exhibition, which Richardson lost by fall with 1:29 left in the third period.
