Weston Ranch coasts to easy win over Bruins

WESTON RANCH — Weston Ranch High’s 45-19 win over Bear Creek Tuesday looks impressive on paper.
But the Cougars, who are off to a nice 6-1 start in preseason duals, aren’t wrestling on paper, and head coach Pat King wasn’t exactly pleased with the overall effort on the mat.
“As a team want to get better each match, but did not wrestle well,” King said. “The kids understand that. A wins a win, but as coaches we have got to make them better.”
Christopher Rodriguez was a bright spot for Weston Ranch, as he pinned his opponent in 1 minute, 31 seconds in the 112-pound match.
Heavyweight Eddie Reed finished off his opponent in 1:54, and Ramon Cortez (171) won by fall in 3:40. The Cougars picked up two other six-point wins via forfeit, with the victors being Michael Salisbery at 119, and Chris Contreras at 189.
The match’s most competitive battle came at 103, where Daniel Guzman led 5-4 going into the third period and kept the lead there over the final two minutes.
Also winning by decision were Grant Mar (130) 9-2 and Daniel Garcia (135) 6-2. Travis Bowen (152) was ahead 5-2 before winning by injury default.
Weston Ranch will next take part in the 14th Annual Western Invitational Friday and Saturday.
