Litchfield Wrestling Hosts Super Duals


After starting the season on the road with a pair of victories over Shelbyville and Cumberland, the Litchfield High School wrestling team was at home for the first time this season with their annual super duals at Simmons Gymnasium on Saturday, Dec. 1.

The Panthers would go 1-4 at the super duals, posting a win over Roxana, while falling to Auburn, Carlinville, PORTA and Pinckneyville.

In the Auburn match, the Trojans would take a 54-18 victory, getting 36 points off Litchfield forfeits.

Both Jefferson Thomas (285) and Will Carlile (120) would earn first period pins, with Thomas winning in 45 seconds and Carlile winning in 79. Carter Powell would get his pin shortly after the first period, earning the fall at 45 second mark of the 113 pound match.

In the Carlinville match, Litchfield would pick up four victories as the Cavies scored a 54-24 victory. Carlinville would get 42 points from Litchfield forfeits, while the Panthers won three of the five contested matches. Both Will Carlile and Dylan Maxwell would earn pins 82 seconds into their respective matches at 120 and 182 pounds, while Jefferson Thomas pinned Chase Lawless at 285 pounds in 43 seconds. Carter Powell would earn Litchfield’s other six points with a forfeit win at 113 pounds.

In the other matches, Litchfield would defeat Roxana 40-30, Pinckneyville would defeat Litchfield 46-23 and PORTA would defeat Litchfield 30-24.
