2nd at Eastern States Classic

submitted by fanofitsince98

Hello everyone! This is fanofitsince98 checking in with another Section III Match of the Week that was decided by you guys in the cnywrestling forum. If you haven’t already, you can head into the forum every week and vote on which match should become the next Section III MOTW. Anyway, last week’s MOTW never came to fruition due to the wild New York weather, but at least at this point in time, that doesn’t seem like that will be the case for this week. Instead, we should get to witness a highly anticipated showdown between two of the top Section III Division I teams. Those two teams are the CBA/JD Brother Rams and the Central Square Redhawks, who were ranked #2 and #3 in the latest rankings. So, sit back, relax, and check out this week’s MOTW Preview!

(Side Note: Last week’s MOTW, Adirondack vs. Canastota, has been rescheduled for February 1st)

Both CBA/JD and Central Square have been very successful in dual meets this season, as both teams have only suffered one defeat throughout the season. For CBA/JD, their loss came at the hands of #1 ranked Fulton, though it was only by a slim margin (37-25). Other than that, the Brother Rams have picked up wins over Section III teams like Morrisville-Eaton, ESM (twice), VVS, Phoenix, CNS, and Mexico, while also earning Top 5 team finishes at the North Country Invitational (5th), the Kenneth Haines Tournament (4th), and the Fallen Heroes Tournament (2nd). Central Square, meanwhile, just suffered their first dual meet loss a little while ago at the Lou Pettinelli Duals, where they fell 42-32 against a state ranked Penfield squad. Other than that, the Redhawks have won 22 dual meets, including victories over Skaneateles, Newark Valley, Chenango Valley, Marcellus, ESM, Indian River, and SJSC. Individually, C-Square can hold their own too, as they were 5th at the Anderson Memorial Tournament and 9th at the Kenneth Haines Tournament. Last season saw CBA/JD earn a 56-22 victory over Central Square, but now that more than a year has passed, will the result be the same? Or will Central Square prove they are deserving of the #2 spot in Division I and knock off CBA/JD?

As per usual, cnywrestling will break down the upcoming dual meet by looking at the lightweights (99-126), middleweights (132-160), and heavyweights (170-285) that each team has to offer. First, however, is some essential information you need to know about the upcoming matches:

Dual Meet: CBA/JD Brother Rams (9-1) vs. Central Square Redhawks (22-1)
Location: Paul V Moore High School (address on Central Square team page)
Date: Wednesday, January 18th, 2017
Time: 6:00 PM
Percentage of Forum Vote: 45.2%
Result From 2015-2016: CBA/JD 56, Central Square 22

Now let’s get into it!

Lightweights (99-126):

CBA/JD has five wrestlers with over 15 wins in the lightweights, so it’s fair to say they are strong from 99 to 126. Starting at 99 and 106, North Country Invitational Champion Myles Griffin is 21-3 on the season, and he joins brother Matt (1st @ Kenneth Haines, 7th @ Eastern States, 20-2) in creating one of the best brother duos in New York State. Jumping up to 126, Garrett Bauer (24-7) and Tyler Kellison (17-3) are a combined 43-10 and give CBA/JD the option to confidently bump one of them up to 132 pounds if needed during a dual meet. Not to be forgotten, Ethan Wells has really improved as a freshman, and he is 15-7 with place finishes at the North Country Invitational, the Kenneth Haines Tournament, and the Fallen Heroes Tournament.

As strong as CBA/JD is in the lightweights, they are just about matched weight-for-weight by the Redhawks. At 99, 7th grader Kole Mulhauser is already at the 30-win mark and has had some impressive performances this season. At 106, freshman Brandon Luedemann is around the 25-win mark and has only lost to one Section III opponent this season. Jumping up to 120 and 126, freshman Peyton Rupracht is around the 30-win mark, and junior Andy Nicholson is over 20 wins and was just recently named C-Square’s MOW at the Hannibal Duals.

Who has the edge? As impressive as the Redhawks are down low, it seems that CBA/JD is just a little bit better at the key weights. My. Griffin vs. Mulhauser, Ma. Griffin vs. Luedemann, and Bauer/Kellison vs. Nicholson would all be excellent match-ups if they happen, but I’d be willing to bet that CBA/JD has the advantage in all of those matches. It’s not a big edge, it’s an edge for CBA/JD nonetheless. Ethan Wells and Peyton Rupracht could play X-factors for their teams at this point in the lineup on Wednesday.

Middleweights (132-160):

Aside from the likely bumping up of either Bauer or Kellison to 132, CBA/JD has a few other notable wrestlers in the middleweights, beginning with defending Section III Champion Jonah Cavallo. Cavallo is 20-4 and went 2-2 at the Eastern States Classic last week, and he’s considered a Sectional favorite at 145 pounds. Jake Wright is also considered a Sectional favorite, though at 160 pounds, and that stems from his 4th place Section III finish in 2016, as well as performances like a 3rd place showing at the Kenneth Haines Tournament. Brian Martin (138 pounds) has also wrestled well this season, and he joins Wright in currently sitting at 15 wins according to

Central Square counters with a middleweight Section III Champion of their own, Phoenix Webb (152). Webb has been pretty solid this season in his defense of his 152-pound crown, but he doesn’t appear to be at 100% health wise, so he could take a rest on Wednesday in preparation for the Section III Duals this Saturday. If he does rest (or simply isn’t healthy enough to wrestle), the rest of C-Square’s middleweights will have to step up, including Caden Rupracht, who is impressively nearing 20 wins a season after not even reaching 10.

Who has the edge? Again, I have to give it to CBA/JD here. The problem for C-Square here is a matter of depth, as they don’t quite have the same level of wrestlers from 132 to 160 that CBA/JD does. Jake Wright vs. Caden Rupracht/Phoenix Webb at 160 pounds could be the best match-up in this area.

Heavyweights (170-285):

The heavyweights have been kind of a mixed bag for CBA/JD this season, but they could be peaking at just the right time from 170 to 285. Zach Langdon (16-8, 170) has remained strong this season and just recently finished runner-up at the Fallen Heroes Tournament, Adam Honis (19-5, 182) has proven to be one of the top 182-pounders in Section III, Chris Pappas (11-9, 182/195) has shown he can wrestle well against solid competition, and Mingus Betsey appears to have returned to the lineup to give CBA/JD a 285-pounder with some decent wrestling experience.

Two defending Section III Finalists have a spot in the Central Square heavyweight lineup, and they are Max Edmond (32-1, 182) and Isaac Havens (29-3, 195). Edmond’s lone loss of the season came in the finals of the Kenneth Haines Tournament, and with his resume he has to be considered one of the best pound-for-pound wrestlers in Section III Division I. Havens, meanwhile. was a Kenneth Haines Champion and has proven to be a favorite to finally earn a Section III title this season, as he is a two-time runner-up. The duo of Edmond and Havens is intimidating enough, but throw in Jamie Battaglia (18-5, 182), Jordan Pone (18-10, 220), and Mack West (11-6, 220), and you have an entire portion of a lineup that is intimidating.

Who has the edge? This is where Central Square will need to make a dent against CBA/JD, as they have the advantage here and need to exploit it. Honis vs. Edmond/Battaglia at 182 and Pappas vs. Havens at 195 could be important and intriguing match-ups.

Final Edge:

So here’s the deal. There is no doubt that both CBA/JD and Central Square would like to win on Wednesday, but there’s also the possibility that these two teams will meet in the Championship Quarter-Finals of the Section III Dual Meet Tournament this weekend. As a result, we could see this dual as a preview for the weekend, or we could see some alterations made to the lineups from either team, which could change the shape of this dual. However, both teams could also go into Wednesday guns-blazing and aiming for victory 100%, so there’s a lot of layers to watch out for in this exceptional dual meet. As for my final edge, I give it to CBA/JD, as their advantages in the light and middleweights will be too much for Central Square to make up in the heavyweights, in my opinion. Make no mistake about it, though, this is a dual filled with all-star wrestlers that are part of two of the best Division I programs Section III has to offer, so be sure to try and get out to Central Square to attend, and check out for the results. As always, I’ll end with my final score.
