Devils pin Steamboat, Glenwood

GYPSUM - Wrestlers just don't like to waste time.

There were six minutes allotted for each bout during Thursday's tri at Eagle Valley with Steamboat Springs and Glenwood Springs as the guests, but the 360 seconds were rarely needed.

The Devils dispatched Steamboat Springs, 66-10, and didn't take much time defeating Glenwood Springs, 73-4. Thanks to a bevy of forfeits, the Demons recorded a 45-35 victory over the Sailors, though Steamboat actually won all but one of the matches contested.

"I'm really proud of the guys," Devils coach Ron Beard said. "They did the things we worked on in practice. Glenwood is having a rebuilding year. They have a lot of young wrestlers, but that doesn't take away from our effort."

Ten of the Devils' 13 wins against the Demons came by way of pin from the very brief (Ty LaFramboise, 11 seconds at 190 pounds) to Rafael Gurule's buzzer-beater at 132 pounds at 5 minutes, 59 seconds.

"We're a young team," Glenwood coach Miles Cook said. "We want to be competitive. If we're out in 10 seconds, that's not good. But if they're on mat and competing, we're in good shape. We need to learn to strive for that."

To that end, the Demons' Alex Cohen picked up a win at 113 pounds over Eagle Valley's Connor McGillvray, 21-7.

Against Steamboat, the Devils won six of seven matches contested. Gurule won an action-packed match against the Sailors' Nathan Parks, 17-13, at 132, while Branden Ehman came back for the pin against Steamboat's Mike Hansen.

"We had to manipulate the lineup for Steamboat to get some matchups," Beard said. "Some kids stepped up. Branden Ehman, he won two varsity matches. Lane (Dobransky) stepped up. Rafa (Rafael) wrestled great against (Parks)."

Glenwood Springs did win its dual against the Sailors. However, the Sailors do deserve credit for doing well in the weights in which they could field wrestlers. Steamboat got pins from Cole Sittig (285), Parks (132), Hansen (138), Dane Kopfer (145) and Guerin Lewis (152).

"All in all, we wrestled OK," Steamboat coach Shane Yeager said. "We made a lot of mistakes out there. We've got to clean it up with attention to detail. That's what we're lacking right now."
