Tigers News · Wrestling: Tough day for the Tigers in home quad


BROOMFIELD — The Holy Family Tigers knew they were going to take their lumps during this season.

With a young roster and a lot of first timers on the mat, just getting the experience will go a long way in the years to come. And days like Saturday against some of the states best — including Northern League stalwarts Windsor as well as up-and-coming Severance — isn’t about looking at the final score as much as it is the chance to compete.

The Tigers went 0-for-3 on Saurday against the Wizards, Silver Knights and Horizon — who filled in at the last moment after the original hosts from Mountain View had to back out due to a Covid protocols.

Things started with a bang for the Tigers and 182-pounder Vicente Lopez against Windsor. He was up 6-1 on the Wizards Jimmy Hernandez before getting a second period pinfall at 2:26. It would be the only match Lopez would wrestle on Saturday and he went 3-0 for the day by virtue of two more wins by forfeit.

Matt McCarthy drew Windsor’s Hayden Haas in his opening match and it was a dandy. After a scoreless first two minutes, McCarthy took a 2-1 lead to third and started at the bottom in the final frame. An escape put him up 3-1 and one final takedown made the final count 5-1. McCarthy struggled to find any traction against Severance’s Tommy Thompson and lost his second match 10-3 before earning a forfeit victory against Horizon.

The highlight of the Severance dual was in the opening match at 170 pounds. Senior Justin Trostel and the Silver Knights’ Dakota Odegaard swapped first period takedowns and went to the second tied 4-4. It was Trostel who got the leverage in the second and put Odegaard on his back for a pinfall victory at 2:31.

The Tigers failed to record a victory against Horizon, losing all six matches to the Hawks. Five of the six matches were over in the first period.
