East Takes A League Lump In Home Opener

Chesmont League wrestling action continued Wednesday evening (1/11) when D-East took on Coatesville in their home opener. The event is always a tough one as Coatesville consistently brings the grit and determination they are known for. At the final whistle, the Cougars fell 21-30, losing 8 of the 13 bouts, two of them in overtime. Adham Abouraya (285) and Valen Piff (114) scored the lone falls for East, while Steven Elinski (133), Cade McDowell (160), and Felix Mason (215) chipped in with decisions. In the end, East learned some hard lessons in battling through adversity and digging deep when needed. They will need these skills as the season progresses. Congrats go out to the JV Cougars who did an outstanding job in handling an 11-match contest, winning 46-18! Mike Brady, Akil Talakola, Jake Bouska, Joe Duque, Caleb Aikens, Scott Zhang, and Nick Romano all picked up wins. Next up, the Chichester duals this coming weekend. Best of luck to our young group!
