Comanche outwrestles Marlow in dual

COMANCHE — Comanche senior JonWayne Townsend was in no mood to lose on homecoming night to Marlow.

So he made sure he gave his team a much needed boost during his match.

Townsend’s pin over MHS’ Cody Scroggins at the 1:02 mark of the second period in the 138-pound match gave the Indians a 21-9 advantage, which proved to be the catapult CHS needed to roll in a 67-19 victory over the Outlaws.

“I try to come into every match with the same mindset of dominating every aspect,” Townsend said. “I never overlook or underestimate anyone. Cody Scroggins is no slouch. He’s a state qualifier and a decent wrestler. Getting that pin was a real big confidence booster for my team and motivated them to go out and do the same thing.”

It wasn’t until the 152-pound match that CHS was able to gain a solid upper hand over the Outlaws.

With the score sitting at 21-13, Comanche’s Josh Hodges picked up a 9-0 victory over Marlow’s Nick Yates in the 152-pound division, which made the score 25-13 in favor of the Indians.

Marlow made life difficult though as the Outlaws came out in the first match of the evening with Logan Knox claiming a 4-2 victory over Corey Williams in the 113-pound division, giving the Outlaws a 3-0 lead.

Comanche took the lead at 6-3 with Shayne Revels going unopposed at 120 pounds.

After CHS’ Ricky Kelly got a 5-1 decision over Chris Davis at 126 pounds, a double forfeit at 132 pounds got the Outlaws back in the dual at 15-9.

Seth Scarbrough got the only other win on the night for the Outlaws in a match situation as he won a major decision over Jonathan Robinson by a score of 13-2.

“This was the best we have wrestled this year,” Comanche coach Jason Miller said. “Our kids were finishing moves out there. We did alright in the first match only losing by two points. The match was Scarbrough was rough as well but we didn’t give up the pin which helped a lot. We needed this dual to build some confidence for us.”

Devin Renfro (182), Skyler Stengel (160), and Jason Loafman (195) all obtained pinfall victories for the Indians on the night.

Comanche will be back at home on Jan. 22 in a triangular against Davis and Plainview.
