SoHi wins wrestling dual with Kenai

The Soldotna Stars secured a dual meet victory Tuesday night at Kenai Central High School. The dual, which SoHi won 56-24, was scheduled as Kenai’s senior night, but the Kardinals entire roster is composed of juniors, sophomores and freshman.

The Stars racked up three weight class victories to Kenai’s one (not including wins by forfeit), with wins going to Logan Katzenberger at 215 pounds, Jakob Brown at 135 and Kyle Matson at 140. Kenai’s lone match win was Tucker Vann at 171.

Katzenberger caught Kenai’s Morgan Starks in a pin midway through the second round for the 215-pound win. In the 135-pound match, Brown took a 10-1 major decision over Kenai’s Andrew Gaethle, and in the 140-pound match, Matson took a 17-7 major decision over Kenai’s Isaiah Ticknor.

Vann pinned SoHi’s Aiden Willets in 20 seconds to win the 171 match.

In forfeited matches, Soldotna got the full six points in seven matches, while Kenai got forfeit wins in three.

The two schools also wrestled four exhibition matches, which do not count for points. At 119 pounds, SoHi’s Hunter Secor defeated Kenai’s Talon Whicker, at 130 pounds, SoHi’s Justin Bordelon beat Kenai’s Rey Perez, at 152 pounds, Kenai’s Jason Koenig pinned SoHi’s Josh Hall, and at 285 pounds, Kenai’s Branch Keller pinned Katzenberger of SoHi.
