Crater flexes its muscle against North Medford

Crater flexes its muscle against North MedfordCrater gave an indication of why it's the favorite in Southern Oregon Conference wrestling this winter with a 58-12 dual-meet win at North Medford on Thursday.

The Comets amassed five pins and two technical falls in the season-opening contest.

As a team, said Comets coach Greg Haga, we were pretty aggressive. We attacked them. We were working on certain things in practice, and the kids went out and did a pretty good job of that.

North Medford won two matches, both by pins from Ulreys ' by Jon at 103 pounds over Andrew Van Way and by Jimmy at 152 over Jordan Godley.

Otherwise, it was all Crater.

The featured match was at 160, where Crater's Ron Lee upended North's Rob Folsom, 17-7, in a battle of state-placers from last year.

Lee placed sixth at 152 pounds, while Folsom ' the SOC district champion a year ago ' was seventh at 160.

Folsom, a junior, began the match with a takedown, but the sophomore Lee escaped to pave the way to a 6-4 lead after one period.

He extended it to 10-6 after two periods.

A takedown by Lee in the third enabled him to stay in control.

Folsom's a stud, and Ron did a good, said Haga. That's two possible state finalists right there, I think.

Other highlights for Crater came at 140, where Chase Maloney battled illness and a 6-3 deficit to defeat Chris Platt, 8-7; and at 125, where freshman John Burnhardt came away with a 6-1 win over John Penney.
