The Central boys wrestling team went 1-4 across two duals in the opening week of action.  


The Warriors started the week at South Winneshiek, where they went 0-2 with dual losses to the host team and New Hampton/Turkey Valley. 


Against South Winn, Central lost 54-12 after going 2-7 in wrestling matches. Wins came via fall from Braxton Bormann at 126 pounds and Nick Dietchler at 138 pounds. The rest of the team, including Jacob Cook, Collin Jaster, Jonah Burns, Preston Kulper, Daniel Royer, Sam Fettkether and Nate Shirbroun all suffered losses via fall. 


The Warriors lost to NH/TV 60-13, going 3-6 in matches and giving up four forfeits. Victories came from Bormann via fall, Deitchler by 16-6 majority decision and Kulper by 13-8 decision. 


The next meet for Central was at Postville, which also included East Buchanan and Edgewood-Colesburg. The Warriors went 1-2 in duals, losing to Postville and East Buchanan, but pulling out the victory against Ed-Co. 


The Warriors lost to Postville 48-29, despite winning four out of 7 matches, but gave up 30 points due to five forfeits. Bormann won his match via technical fall, while Kulper, Royer and Deitchler all pinned their opponents. 


Against East Buchanan, the Warriors went 3-2 in matches, but were once again undone by forfeits, giving up 30 points and ultimately losing the dual 42-31. Bormann won a 13-0 majority decision, while Deitchler earned a 6-0 decision win and Royer won by fall. 


Central benefited from five forfeit wins against Edgewood-Colesburg. Paired with a 1-2 record in matches, the team won the dual 33-12. The lone Central victory came from Deitchler, in a 7-1 decision. 


The Warriors will look to get back on the winning track this week with a dual at Center Point-Urbana, then the Nashua-Plainfield Tournament Dec. 10.
