BHS wrestlers cruise past PHS 44-18

The Battlefield varsity wrestling team again demonstrated on Wednesday night why the team is favored to repeat as the Cedar Run District champion with a 44 to 18 win in Nokesville against host team Patriot.

In 14 head-to-head match-ups at the dual event, Bobcat wrestlers claimed nine wins to the Pioneers' five.

Battlefield's strength came from the light-to-middle weights while Patriot put together a string of three wins from 170 through 195 pounds while losing the two top heavy-weight classes.

Bobcat winners included Matt Asper (106 pounds), Alec Shrauder (113), Ian Walker (120), Caleb Peltzer (132), Justus Weaver (145), Ray Bernot (152), Conner Delaney (160), Francis Njoke (220) and Lee Ferrill (285).

Patriot's wins came from Chad Lehner (126 pounds), Beckh Robertson (138), Dillon Creswell (170), Anthony Olsen (182) and Zack Catron (195). Lehner recorded the home team's only pin; the other four won minor decisions worth three points each.

Up next on the calendar for Battlefield is the Loudoun Valley duals schedule for this Friday and Saturday followed by the district duals at home in Haymarket on Friday, Jan. 25. The Bobcats close out the regular season at Forest Park on Jan. 26.

As for Patriot, tonight's dual meet at Colonial Forge is canceled, leaving the Pioneers with only the district duals left on the regular season agenda.

The Cedar Run District tournament is set for Feb. 2 at Freedom (South Riding). Patriot hosts the Northwest Regional tournament on Feb. 8. Oscar Smith High School in Chesapeake is set to host the Group AAA state championship finals on Feb. 15.
