Fort Scott High School's wrestlers didn't have much trouble overall in their home Southeast Kansas League dual Tuesday night. The Tigers defeated Coffeyville 41-12 and Parsons 66-6. Parsons beat Coffeyville, 45-24, in the opening dual.

"Most matches went exactly as I thought they would," head coach David Brown said. "We wrestled hard. And that's tough after coming back from the tournament at Basehor this weekend."

Because of all the open spots in Coffeyville's lineup -- the Golden Tornado wrestled just 10 out of 28 possible matches on the night -- John Hughes was the only Tiger who wrestled twice. He defeated both his opponents at 152 pounds -- Derek Frost of Coffeyville, 5-4, and Billy Virtue of Parsons, 13-8.

"He's gotten himself into good positions at times," Brown said. "With that said, he also gets into bad positions at times. Hopefully, we can get him more aggressive on his feet where he's able to be more effective at takedowns."

Fort Scott (3-1 SEK duals, 9-5 all duals) led the Coffeyville dual 15-0 after the first six matches. There were three matched where both teams were open and the Nado (0-2, 0-2) forfeited 132 pounds. Cole Stewart defeated Keegan Deenihan, 4-2, at 106 and Victor Hughes pinned Trey Thompson in the third period at 138.

Coffeyville's first win came on an injury default as Fort Scott's Race Kastl tried to brace himself with his left arm while Blayne Kimmel took him to the mat. But the impact broke both bones in the lower arm.

"He's a talented young man and would have done some amazing things, I really think," Brown said of Kastl. "Trevor Pulliam, a freshman, is going to have to do a little bit more, work a little bit harder and enjoy his time in the sun this next month."

Hughes won his match at 152 but his attitude at the end cost the Tigers a team point. Cody Bunn (160) and John Metcalf (170) picked up forfeits and both teams were open at 182.

Dane Cummings pinned Skyler Beckwith at 195 and Hayes Howser claimed a forfeit at 220 to make it 41-6. Coffeyville's Austin Ryder pinned B.J. Wilson at 285 -- Wilson was giving up 74 pounds to Ryder.

In the 10 matches held in the Parsons dual, Fort Scott recorded six pins. These were taken by Tyler Sharp (120), Jerad Heckman (126), Jacob Durossette (132), Bunn (160), Metcalf (170) and Howser (220).

Fort Scott led 30-0 as Stewart (106) and V.Hughes (138) took forfeits. Pulliam was pinned by Jeremy Chaloupek at 145.

Christian Tavenaro needed four extra periods to claim a 6-3 victory over Matt Martinez. The match was tied 1-1 after regulation as each wrestler could only score an escape during the period in which the other began with the advantage.

The first two overtimes -- two 30-second periods -- aren't sudden death or else the match would have ended when Martinez escaped in the first OT to go ahead 2-1. But Tavenaro scored a reversal with 8 seconds remaining in the second OT. The match would continue, though, as Martinez escaped with 2 seconds left.

Neither wrestler scored in the third OT. Tavenaro scored a near-fall in the fourth OT and held on to win.

"'Ultimate overtime' as it's called," Brown said. "He's starting to get used to that. He had three of those in the Basehor tournament, losing two of them that it was unfortunate to lose because it's that close. I guess his experience at it paid off tonight because he still had a little bit to get after it with."

Howser pinned Steven Cronick at 220 and Wilson accepted a forfeit at 285 to close out the dual.

There were two junior varsity matches. Caleb Gazaway pinned Rand Hurley of Parsons with 59 seconds left in the first period of his match. Adam Deloney pinned Hurley with 35 seconds left in the first.

The Tigers will take part in the Paola Tournament this weekend. There are about five weekends remaining before Fort Scott hosts the Class 4A Regional Tournament.
