Redskins wrestlers rout Shawnee

Sometimes you have to be able to find a way to win even if you don’t have your best stuff and after a bit of a slow start, Wapakoneta righted the ship and pinned their way to their third Western Buckeye League win in as many tries on Thursday night, taking a 60-24 win over the home standing Shawnee Indians.
“It wasn’t our most sharp match tonight,” said Wapakoneta coach Jason Rostorfer. “Especially in a couple weight classes where we have a lot of work to do, but we’ll take the win and go from there.”
In the match all the points scored were either by a pin or a forfeit. Wapakoneta recorded five pins (four in the first period) and benefitted from five defaults, while the Indians had three pins (all in the first period) and one void. It’s always good to get a win, but Rostorfer was not really happy with the five defaults his team received and would like to have seen his wrestlers get more work in under actual match conditions.
