KIONA-BENTON - The Grandview wrestling team traveled to Kiona-Benton last night and destroyed the Bears by a score of 64-12.
Of the 14 bouts last night, Grandview walked away winning 11 of them.
"It went really well," Grandview Coach Jeff Sevigny said.
Grandview's Fernando Godinez, wrestling at 130 lbs., pinned his opponent in the fastest time of the night. Godinez pinned Jesse Henderson in 56 seconds.
In the 152-lb. bout, Grandview's Greg Gonzalez pinned Ki-Be's Devon Hudspeth in 1:01. Jacob Robillard followed that up, pinning the Bears' Aaron Fenton in 1:25.
Kaelen Nelson, wrestling for Grandview at 125 lbs., pinned his opponent, Justin Hunt, in 3:45. "Nelson has been sick for a while and he came back tonight and wrestled a great match," Sevigny said.
It took most of three periods for Max Saldana to get his pin over Ki-Be's Kyle Hagins in the 135-lb. bout but he managed to pull it off in 5:14.
"Matt got behind early but kept working hard," said Sevigny. "In the end he was able to pin the guy."
In the only other pin of the night, Grandview's Michael Benavidez put Sam Landoe on his back in 5:14 in the 145-lb. class.
Grandview won one of its bouts by a decision. At 171 lbs., Grandview's Tovias Magana beat Johnny Roman 9-0.
In the 215-lb. weight class, Grandview's Adrian Jasso lost to Ki-Be's Britt Samsell 11-9. "Jasso hasn't wrestled in over a month," Sevigny said. "He wrestled a good match last night but came up short and lost in overtime."
Grandview won four of its bouts by forfeit and Ki-Be won only one bout by forfeit. Ki-Be's Jacob Johanns got a decision over Dalton Walker, winning the 119-lb. bout 10-5.
"Team wise, we looked really tough," Sevigny said. "We're peaking at the right time."
