Downingtown East pressures but falls short against the Warriors!

On Wednesday 1/10, East wrestling hosted it’s home opener against league foe West  Chester Henderson. The Cougars unveiled their new home mat and put the pressure on a more experienced Henderson team. At the end of the evening, East fell 27-36, but for much of the match, the younger Cougars had the WCH crowd on edge. Josh Wileczek (195), Keanu Manuel (113), Kyle Mittelstadt (132), and Brett Horne (138) recorded falls for East, while Lukas Richie (126) secured a crucial decision. In the final bout at 182 lbs., freshman Matt Romanelli went the distance with highly ranked senior Ray Martin, losing a tight 3-2 decision. The Cougars showed great effort in their performance, but know that it will take even more to get on the winning side of duals like this. Good luck this weekend at Souderton’s Big Red Duals!
