Purple Raiders upend Falcons

by Steve Ottman

The Two Rivers Raiders tripped up the Sheboygan Falls Falcons 33-30 in an Eastern Wisconsin Conference wrestling dual meet Tuesday, Jan. 4, in Sheboygan Falls.

The loss dropped Falls to 1-3 in the EWC (6-8 overall), while Two Rivers kept its conference title hopes intact with a 4-0 mark in the EWC.

The Falcons led the match 22-15, after sophomore Drew Setzer scored a pin in the 189-pound match.

The Raiders then rallied for three consecutive pins to take a 33-22 lead, with three matches remaining.

Falcons' freshman Alex Fitzgerald grabbed a 17-2 technical fall victory in the 112-pound match to close the gap to 33-27.

Freshman Dakota Lloyd, who was wrestling in his first varsity match, gave Falls head coach Fred Brown all he could ask for. Lloyd lasted all three rounds, before losing 14-7 in a match that was closer than the outcome indicated.

“I felt he had a lot of pressure on him and he did his best to win the match,” said Brown. “Our young team was challenged tonight. We need to learn from this and work on the things we need to fix.”

Falls freshman Mitchell Lambrecht earned a 3:21 pin in the 125-pound match to improve to 3-1 in the EWC. Senior Jeremiah Kramasz also scored a pin in the 152-pound match.

Other Falcons picking up wins were juniors Ben Fairbotham (160), Lucas Lambrecht (145) and Jeff Becker (140).

Both teams recorded seven wins each, but the Raiders were able to take advantage of some bonus points to earn the dual meet victory.
