Dakota Resendez

Chickasha senior Dakota Resendez takes his Wagoner opponent down in the second round of the 132-pound match during 4A Dual State quarterfinals in Shawnee on Friday.

Duals are done for Chickasha this season.

Third-ranked Wagoner sent the Fightin' Chicks out of 4A Dual State in Shawnee on Friday with a 49-15 win. They will face Tuttle at noon on Saturday in the semifinals.

The Tigers, six-time defending champions at Dual State, won their semifinal against Vinita, 79-0, on Friday.

Dakota Resendez, Dominic Neff, Damian Barron and Montana Moon all won their matches for Chickasha. Some were involved in a mini-run for the Chicks, who came within four points of Wagoner after early losses put them in a hole.

After Ethan Calhoun lost by a pin in the third round of the 126-pound match, Resendez struck back for Chickasha by winning his bout at 132-pounds in a 5-0 decision. Resendez recorded takedowns in both the first and second rounds and had an escape in the second.

Lamar Neff tried to mount a comeback with a reversal in the third round of his 145 match, but fell 5-2. Dominic Neff followed that up with an 11-4 decision, and Barron took a 9-3 decision at 160 pounds to bring the score to 13-9, Wagoner still leading.

At 170-pounds, Dao Xian Lim battled to the third round before he was pinned. It handed momentum back to Wagoner, who took the next four matches to build a big lead.

Moon's victory at 106-pounds with a third round pin was a consolation victory for Chickasha. It was the first time the Fightin' Chicks had reached Dual State in about a decade.

Next weekend, Chickasha heads to Western Heights for regionals. The individuals who qualify from their class will go to 5A State at the OKC Fairgrounds on Feb. 26.
