By on December 24, 2008

            Knights wrestling probably couldn’t think of a better present for itself after two weeks of no meets than to get back on the mat and start pinning people.

            The giving began on Saturday out at south suburban Argo High School in Summit for a quad also featuring Chicago’s St. Patrick and Kelly High Schools.

            The Knights lost to St. Patrick 42-33, but beat Kelly 44-27 before losing to host Argo 32-26. In dual meet competition, the Knights sit at 5-7.

            Knight grapplers who secured wins against the St. Patrick Shamrocks of the East Suburban Catholic included 125-pound entry Devon Scholl who won his match 7-1, Matt Weaver at 130 pounds who got a pinfall in 38 seconds, Kyle Davidson at 140 who eked out a 7-6 win, 145-pound asset Jay Levita with a 2:46 pinfall and heavyweight Jimmy Boyle with a 9-3 win.

            Against the Kelly Trojans, Kaneland soared to victory thanks to a 6-0 win by School, a technical fall by Levita in 3:10, a 1:28 fall by 160-pounder J.T. Webb.

171-pound grappler Tim Meyer also won his matchup with a 9-6 total.

            In the close loss to the host Argonauts, 103-pounder Ryan Goodenough took a technical fall in four minutes. Scholl took a pinfall in 3:59 and Weaver won a 7-6 affair.

            Teammate Emiliano Ponce won his matchup 8-6, Davidson earned a pin in 3:48 and Levita won his matchup by an 8-7 clip.

            Coming up for the Knights is the usual Don Flavin stop in DeKalb which takes place on Monday, Dec. 29 and Tuesday, Dec. 30.
