Owls show no mercy on Conn. power Danbury

As for as a quad-meet sweep, it doesn’t get much more satisfying than the one enjoyed by Timberlane yesterday in Warwick, R.I.

The Owls swept Chelmsford (53-18), host Warwick (44-12) and Connecticut power Danbury (46-12) in impressive fashion. Danbury, which is the last team in New England to beat the Owls in a dual meet, had been much more competitive last week in a 34-21 loss to Mount Anthony.

“It was a great day,” said Timberlane coach Barry Chooljian. “We smashed a very good Danbury team.

“We inserted Jake Kappler at 132 and the move paid off. He pinned and then a bumped up (Dan) Scalzo, (Josh) Burnham and (Shaun) Ahern and they all won. Scalzo and Ahern won at the buzzer sandwiched between a big win by Burnham.”

Burnham and Scalzo were both 3-0 on the day as were 182-pounder Harry Denoncourt and 220-pounder Shawn Grenier. Denoncourt had three pins and Burnham and Grenier had a pair. Josh Riley, with two pins, and Tyler Fitzpatrick were both 2-0 for the Owls (19-2).

Title to North Reading

North Reading/Lynnfield captured its first Cape Ann League title since becoming a cooperative team and it did so in commanding fashion.

North Reading, which has now won three tournaments this year, captured five individual titles and compiled 207 points, well ahead of runner-up Triton (152 1/2). Pentucket (137) came in fourth.

Although it showed good depth, North Reading really flexed its muscles in the upper weights, winning the last four classes. John Klug started the victory parade at 182, followed by Chris Connor, Tom Arseneault and Andrew Kibarian. They were joined by 113-pound champ Eric Kerr.

Pentucket was led by 120-pound champ Tom Funk, a repeat CAL champ. He improved his season record to 28-1 and was named the Wrestler of the Year.

Joining him with first-place medals were sophomore Josh Wesolowski at 132 and brother Jeff Funk at 145. Wesolowski, who was seeded third, had an excellent tournament and improved to 29-4 on the year.
