All the snow and virus in the world couldn’t stop Downingtown’s annual wrestling classic, “The Battle Of The Brandywine.” Held at Downingtown West on a cold Thursday night (2/4), the crosstown rivals locked horns despite all the odds and put on one helluva show!. In the end, the Cougars claimed the prize with a 31-28 finish and a night to remember. The action was back and forth and the small crowd that was permitted to attend was raucous. Senior captains Matt Romanelli (189) and Keanu Manuel (120) scored falls, while sophomore Ryan Loraw (138) picked up a pin of his own. Nick Viscomi (172) took a forfeit, Paxson Warnock (106) earned a hard-fought decision, and Bo Horvath (160) collected a major to put the Cougars on top. Frankie Colantuno (138), TJ Shillingford (138), Liam Ericson (138), and Brandon Pacinelli (145) were all victorious in the JV tilt. Congratulations go out to all the Downingtown wrestlers, East and West, for a great night of competition! This year has been tough for us all and getting to wrestle in the “Battle” reminds us that a return to our true way of life is on its way!
