UP Wrestlers Lose Two Matches at Methacton Tri-Meet
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            Upper Perkiomen's wrestling team lost both its matches in the Methacton Tri-Meet over the weekend. Initially, the team fell 42-33 to Hatboro-Horsham. Then, it lost 51-23 to the host Warriors.

            Matt Milkowich (16-4), Brandan Rozanski and Tyler Hoffer each won both their matches for the Indians, who are preparing for the individual postseason, which begins Feb. 26.
            Milkowich scored two falls at 113 pounds. Rozanski (28-3) delivered a pin and a technical fall victory at 120.

Chidike Eruba, top, controls his opponent from Hatboro-

Horsham.  The Upper Perkiomen junior scored a fall over

Bryan Acevedo at 189 pounds.


            All nine of the Tribe's wrestlers will compete in the District One Class 3A North Tournament, scheduled for Feb. 26 at Perkiomen Valley High School. However, the team's lineup could look significantly different, according to head coach Steve Adam.

            The Tribe is currently holding wrestle-offs in practice. The team's lighter weights will battle for specific positions, according to the coach. Adam said he expects the best-of-three series to be closely contested.

            "The beauty of this sport is that there are no coaches who decide who starts and who sits," Adam said. "District One has a deep talent pool, and we are doing our best to get our guys ready for it."

            Hoffer (16-14) pinned Methacton's Evan Pellegrino in the first period at 132 pounds after receiving a forfeit win against the Hatters at 132 pounds.

            Against Hatboro-Horsham, the Tribe won five of the initial six matches. Thomas Fehnel injury default victory over Josh Schwartz staked the team to a 27-6 lead.

            However, the Hatters captured five of the next six matches. Chidike Eruba registered the lone win for the Indians, a second period pin of Bryan Acevedo.

            In its second match, Tyler Hoffer (132) and Gabe Sanfelice (138) each delivered six-point wins for Upper Perkiomen against the Warriors. Rozanski needed just 40 seconds to beat Shubham Railkar.

            According to Adam, Brandon Godshall's performance stood out despite splitting his two matches over the weekend at 126 pounds. Godshall (15-17) posted a 5-1 victory over Hatboro-Horsham's Orion Newell before losing 6-1 to Joey Simko, a sophomore from Methacton.

            Godshall (15-17) could benefit from dropping a weight class in the post-season, according to the coach. Adam said the sophomore has been wrestling at 126 for the good of the team.  "Brandon has one of the strongest work ethics in the [practice] room," the coach said. "He keeps his head down and works hard."
