Good day for underdogs

OXFORD – It was not a good day for defending Section IV champions at the 44th Annual Clyde Cole Tournament in Oxford Saturday.

Devon Brown of Marathon avenged a loss to Greene’s Nick Wilcox in last year’s 103-pound Section IV championships, while Justin Davy of B-G/Afton topped Shayne Wilcox of Unadilla Valley at 135 pounds, that victory atoning for a two-point defeat last season.



“We came out and wanted to wrestle our match and dictate the pace,” said B-G/Afton coach Brandon MacNaught. “To beat a good kid, such as Wilcox, you have to get an early takedown.”

Davy did score in the first period taking Wilcox down, and led late in the match, 3-2. With Wilcox pressing for the lead, Davy wrapped up the win with another takedown for one of two Bears titles on the day.

Wilcox and Brown split their two matches a year ago, although it was Wilcox prevailing when it mattered most winning 6-2 in the Division II finals en route to a New York State championship. Brown was the aggressor and scored takedown and back points n the first and third periods to down the freshman Trojan wrestler, 12-4.
