Ben Ware takes firm control of a Concrete opponent en route to a win in the Wolverines Dec. 10 four-team league match at home.

James Guard and Thomas Synoground tallied two pins apiece in the Wolverines non-league match against Anacortes, Burlington-Edison and South Whidbey at home, Dec. 17.

Pitted against an opponent nine pounds above his normal weight, Ben Ware joined in the pin-fest, with a take-down of Burlington-Edison’s Hunter Thompson with less than one minute elapsed in the bout. Jesse Payne also scored a pin with a take-down of South Whidbey’s Jordan Berry with five seconds remaining in the opening round of contest.

Hunter Smith (220) notched his first pin of the season and the seventh of the four-team match for the Wolverines, taking down Burlington-Edison’s Devin Venegas with one minute left in the final round of the match.

The Wolverines will be on the road for a 4-team league dual meet at Darrington, Jan. 7, and compete at the Sky Valley Invite, at Sultan, before returning home for a two-team league match Jan. 13, at 4:30 p.m.
