Runner-up Owls chasing Mt. Anthony; North Andover fifth

PROVIDENCE — There were plenty of surprises at the first session of the New England Tournament last night.

But the team standings are pretty much as expected.

After the first day of wrestling at the Providence Career and Technical Academy, Vermont power Mount Anthony leads with 30 points, just a half-point ahead of five-time defending champion Timberlane. North Andover is fifth with 18 points.

Mount Anthony placed five wrestlers into this morning’s quarterfinals, one more than Timberlane, and the Patriots have six wrestlers in alive in consolation action — again, one more than the Owls.

Advancing for the Owls were Adam Corey (120), Ryan Peters (126), Josh Riley (170) and Harry Denoncourt (182). Corey has a tough match this morning against Dracut’s Jon Ryan.

Among those alive in the consolation bracket for Timberlane is 106-pounder Tyler Fitzpatrick, who lost just for the fourth time all year, 4-2 in the first round.

“You’re never happy, but we survived,’ said Timberlane coach Barry Chooljian. “But we’re going to need a great round in the quarterfinals to have a chance.”

North Andover advanced Brad Drover (160) and Ryan Neals (182), but suffered a blow when 152-pounder Fritz Hoehn lost his second match, 8-2, to the Connecticut state champion. Hoehn is still alive in the consolation bracket, however, as is 106-pounder Danielle Coughlin. She dropped an opening match 4-0 but came back with a 13-3 major decision.

Three local wrestlers remained undefeated while advancing — Methuen’s Christian Monserrat (126), Sanborn’s Jon Scheidegger (152) and St. John’s Prep’s Ian Butterbrodt (220). Scheidegger was trailing 4-0 before rallying for a 7-5 victory in overtime.

Central Catholic will be represented in the quarterfinals by Pat Lacroix (1260 and Ben Tavitian (220), the latter of whom won a close 5-4 decision and then rolled 13-6. Also in the quarterfinals are Lawrence’s Hector Reynoso (106), Methuen’s Paul Sughrue (132) and St. John’s Prep heavyweight Corey Jean-Jacques.
