The Indians claimed their first victory of the week and their second of the season Wednesday night at Bergenfield. The 52-24 record puts PV's overall record at 2-1.
Their lone decision came from Sophomore Jake Averna. Averna came back from a two point deficit after the first period to capture a reversal and a near fall for three points in the second period. He also managed a takedown in the third period. The score of Averna's match ended at 7-3.
Stephen Soravilla shut out his opponent with 6-0 score, therefore getting a major decision. The next major decision was the match directly after Soravilla's. Junior Jake Prusha defeated Carlos Haynes. Haynes finished in 8th in the BCCA tournament last week.
Pascack Valley's wrestlers had a plethora of pins. Those who added six points to PV's overall score were Robbie Natelli, James Allmers, Nolan Shields, Matt Beyer, Will Morris, and Geroge Dvoynos.
Allmers, a freshman, had himself his first victory as a wrestler at Valley. He moved down to the 126 pound weight class from 132 pounds, so perhaps this gave Allmers a better shot. A pin for your first win? Not bad.
The Indians travel to River Dell Regional High School on Friday, January 6.
