Section 3 Match of the Week #6

That's right, it's time to break down another Section 3 Match of the Week! For what is not the first time this season, we have another battle amongst Frontier League teams to look at, as this week's MOTW is taking place between the Carthage Comets and the #2 General Brown Lions. General Brown is ranked #2 by for the Division 2 teams in Section 3, and while Carthage is not ranked in the Top 5 of the Division 1 teams in the Section, they are likely just outside of that Top 5. Still, if Carthage were to pull off the victory here, that would speak to the depth of the top teams in Section 3 D-1 over the depth of the top teams in Section 3 D-2, which is not something that most would say typically was seen in the 2010s. However, it's a new decade, it's 2020 baby! With that said, let's take a quick look at the first Section 3 Match(es) of the Week for this decade, which took place last week.

Last week featured the first time I had ever tried to write a “Triple Match of the Week,” as #1 Fulton faced #4 JD-CBA, #2 Indian River squared off with Carthage, and #3 Liverpool took on #5 Cicero-North Syracuse. Fulton, Indian River, and Liverpool all defended their Top 3 rankings with victories. Fulton won 12 of 15 matches against JD-CBA en route to a 61-18 victory, Indian River did the same in a 60-18 victory against Carthage, and Liverpool impressed with a 47-29 win over CNS. Though not involved in a Section 3 Match of the week last week, General Brown did pick up two solid dual meet wins recently -- 51 to 27 against Watertown and 47 to 33 against new #5 SJSC. That means GB might be headed into tomorrow with some momentum, but Carthage did just have two wrestlers compete at the prestigious Eastern States Classic last weekend, and they left with one wrestler who actually placed in the Top 8.

There's a lot to think about when it comes to this dual between Carthage and General Brown -- the depth of D1 vs. D2 in Section 3, a battle for position in the tough Frontier League, and the ten ranked wrestlers set to partake in this dual meet. With that said, let's get to breaking down this upcoming Section 3 Match of the Week.

Dual Details:

- Carthage Comets (3-1) vs. #2 General Brown Lions (8-1)
- Thursday, January 16th, 2020
- 6:00 PM
- 17643 Cemetary Rd, Dexter, NY, 13634

Lightweights (99, 106, 113, 120, 126)

Carthage: The Comets bring three former All-Section 3 wrestlers to their lightweight lineup, and all three are currently ranked wrestlers as well. Those three wrestlers are #5 Frank Downing (113), #4 Justyn Begley (120), and #5 Nicholas Loehr (126). Downing was 3rd in Section 3 last season at 99 pounds and is right at the 15-win mark this season, Begley was 5th in Section 3 last season at 132 pounds and is already over 20 wins this season, and Loehr 4th in Section 3 back in 2018 at 99 pounds, and he is currently also at the 15-win mark. Sam Albright was one win away from placing last season and he's looking to get back into podium contention in the second half of this season at 113 pounds. He's another Comet lightweight to keep an eye on, as are Shay Sinitiere (99) and Dylan Thomas (120).

General Brown: #3 Jared Hoard (113) leads the way for General Brown in the lightweights. On top of his current #3 ranking, Hoard took 3rd in Section 3 last season, and he's currently right near the 20-win mark for this season. Joining Hoard as solid GB lightweights are Ryan McManaman (99), Cael Buckley (106), John Chamberlain (120), and Nathan Snow (120). Chamberlain was a Class C Runner-Up last season at 99 pounds, and Snow has really shown himself as a contender lately at 120 pounds with a number of solid wins, which has also left him right near the 20-win mark alongside Hoard.

Middleweights (132, 138, 145, 152, 160)

Carthage: The middleweights might be where Carthage struggles the most, but they do have the advantage of likely having one of their solid lightweights bumping up to take a spot at 132. That would then likely move Andon Green, who was 3rd in Section 3 at 99 pounds in 2018, to 138, which gives Carthage a pretty solid start to their lineup through their first seven weights. Alec Strife rounds out the Comets's middleweights at 160, and he's had a .500 season so far that included a 1st place Thomas Chikanis Memorial Tournament finish back in December.

General Brown: General Brown's middleweights are headlined by a pair of potential Section 3 Finalists, as both David O'Neil (132) and Chandler Moody (145) are currently ranked #2 at their weight classes. O'Neil is almost at 20 wins this season and he was 3rd in Section 3 a year ago, and Moody is right at 15 wins and was 5th in Section 3 last season. Adding depth around those two is Sheamus Devine (152), who is in double digits for wins and is right around the .500 mark. These wrestlers (and maybe one or two others) give GB the chance to take advantage of some of Carthage's trouble in the middleweights.

Heavyweights (170, 182, 195, 220, 285)

Carthage: Carthage rounds out their lineup in strong fashion, as they have three wrestlers ranked in the Top 2 of their weight classes anchoring their heavyweights. Thomas Albright is currently #2 at 170, and he has placed 5th and 4th at the last two Section 3 Tournaments. Fombo Azah (182) and Collin Null (285) are both #1 at their weight classes, and they were Section 3 Champions a season ago. Both Azah and Null also placed at Eastern States in the 2018-19 season, with Azah finishing 2nd and Null taking 5th. Last weekend, both Azah and Null were back at Eastern States, with Azah making the Quarterfinals and finishing 2-2, and Null taking 5th for the second season in a row. Adding to their accolades, back in 2018 Azah was 2nd in Section 3 and Null was 3rd.

General Brown: Despite having a #2 ranked wrestler at 195 pounds in Nick Rogers, the heavyweights might be where the Lions struggle most. The main reason for that is despite Rogers's presence, GB isn't very deep from 170 to 285, and they often have to forfeit at least two weight classes in this part of their lineup. Still, it's worth noting that Rogers was 5th in Section 3 last season and is already right near the 20-win mark this season.

Final Words

It goes without saying, but this is shaping up to be a very interesting dual. Depending on what weight class this dual starts at, this dual could be quite close heading towards the end. I actually see General Brown with a slight edge in the lightweights, and I think they might have a slight edge in the middleweights too. Still, those two forfeits in the heavyweights could prove to be killer for the Lions, and that's not adding in the Albright-Azah-Null trio that Carthage has in the heavyweights. Adding it all together, I've got Carthage grabbing a big Frontier League victory by a slight margin.

Wrestling is a simple sport. When you step onto the mat, it's you versus someone else. There's not much fancy equipment or anything else. It's not about anything, other than strength and skill and heart. It's about being Built to Lead.

Built to Lead Wrestling presented by the USMC Sports Leadership Academy provides you with first-class instruction from elite coaches. But, more than that, it provides you with intangible skills that make you Built to Lead.

Through a partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps, you will learn what it takes to be the best, to be the first in the gym and the last to leave it.

At the event, participants will participate in skill sessions, as well as receive a Built to Lead Evaluation at the end of the day. Between skill sessions and evaluation, participants will have the opportunity to be challenged, motivated, and to interact with members of the U.S. Marine Corps and learn key skills from the men and women who best exemplify what it means to lead. What it means to have enthusiasm and integrity, courage and loyalty, initiative and endurance.

Every player needs these skills. Every coach wants these players.

Do you have what it takes?  Are you Built to Lead?
