St. Paul makes their case early again...Teurlings downs East Ascension and Comeaux
December 10th, 2020| Written by: Staff writer



Anyone who still doubts the talent of the St. Paul Wolves due to a low-to-medium strength-of-schedule to start the season should submit their resumes to the White House for one of the expanding number of openings available in the current administration's staff.  Neither the doubt nor the jobs should last much longer.

Last season the Wolves showed their strength by defeating Brother Martin 34-29 on December 11th.  While they were not competing against the defending Division I champion Crusaders, they showed plenty against the 2020 third-place winner Catholic on Wednesday night to remain the Division I favorite in 2021.

The Wolves dominated a strong Catholic squad 61-9 at St. Paul.  Bear sophomore Luke Caballero won the first match, at 106 lbs., 7-4 over freshman Conlan Enk.  After that, the only other points for the Bears came at 285 lbs., at which they received a forfeit.  The editor missed that Trey Faherty wrestled in his first match on December 4th after a season-ending injury one the first day of the 2019 Trey Culotta Invitational.  He seems just fine, winning the December 4th match as well as Wednesday's via falls.  Also scoring falls for the Wolves were Michael Rader, Sean Cripple, Grant Vicknair, Peyton Ward, Landry Barker and Blain Cascio.  Carter Duet, a 2020 Division I runner-up for the Wolves had a tough match against Catholic's Landon Toups, but prevailed 3-1.  Two matches later 2020 Division I runner-up for the Bears, senior Peter Kelly, was upset 5-3 by junior Grant Nastasi.  Ian Lyons' 12-3 major decision over Nicholas Migliacio concluded the evening in Covington.

That result may have to placate fans until the Louisiana Classic on January 13th.  The Wolves do not have any competition scheduled after December 12th until January 2nd.  (This is quite possibly not the case as their schedule may have been updated.)

East Ascension and Teurlings Catholic at Comeaux

East Ascension and Teurlings Catholic went to Comeaux for a tri-meet Wednesday night and it was the Spartans who came out on top, scoring 96 points to 85 points for the Rebels.  Host Comeaux was third with 33 points.

Don't y'all miss "stringers?"  You know, those newspaper kids once tasked to cover a wrestling event, yet who had absolutely no idea what was happening, but still had to submit something to be published? 

OK, host Comeaux did come out third, but that is not unexpected as they only have four seniors eligible to wrestle, and 26 younger team members.  Plus, they were against one of the favorites to win Division II and possibly the best public school team in Division I.

But the Rebels beat the (EA) Spartans 41-36.  [Kudos to Jarrid Boudreaux who noticed I did not clarify this point.]

The Spartans and Rebels each had three forfeits, and of the eight contested matches the Rebels won five of them.  TC started with a major decision by Ashton Sonnier, a fall by Ethan Boudreaux and another major decision by Brennan Boyer.  Two forfeits later Jamarius Koshko scored the first points for the Spartans via a fall.  After another forfeit TC's Joshua Vincent won a tough 7-4 win over EA's Josiah Wakefield, after which the Rebels' John Paul Travasos scored a fall.  That was followed by EA's Brad Mahoney (17-0) scoring his 16th fall of the year.  After yet one more forfeit, EA's Jared Schexnaidre recorded the final fall of the match.

In the other two matches East Ascension defeated Comeaux 60-12 and Teurlings Catholic defeated Comeaux 44-21.
