Mountain Lions pin Eagles 46-19

Forfeits and an injury leads to loss against Altoona

The Tyrone grapplers fell to Altoona 46-19 on Thursday due in part to four forfeits and an injury default.

Leading for Tyrone were pins from Lance Loose and Stevie Colyer and wins by Derrick Harris and Devon Brown.

Junior Devon Brown (2-0 on the season) scored an impressive 12-0 win over Altoona’s Corey McClellan with two take downs, a reversal, and three near falls.

“After winning at Huntingdon and Altoona, I feel pretty good going into our first home match on Tuesday against Bellefonte,” said Brown.

In the second bout of the night at 152,  senior Lance Loose got the pin at only :32 on Altoona’s Trevor O’Connor.

“I thought it was going to be harder than it actually was because my opponent kept muscling me when we tied up, but I made a good shot and got the pin,” said Loose, “we could have taken [Altoona] if we had a full team.”

Senior Lance Loose pins Altoona’s Trevor O’Connor.

Junior Stevie Colyer at 220 pinned Trent Boutiller at 1:20 with a take down and a near fall of five seconds.

Sophomore Derrick Harris won 6-2 against Hayden Boutiller with a take down, reversal and a near fall.

“Altoona is always a powerhouse and we knew we had our work cut out for us,” said Harris, “all of us did pretty good against very tough opponents.”
