Looks like Brookville will wrestle Northstar from D-5 in their pigtail match. Here are links to the D-5 page for their team tourney results and for the Northstar team. From these pages, Northstar looks like their undefeated. Off the Mat ranks them #10 in the state. http://members.tripod.com/~BKoontz/td5dm.htm http://members.tripod.com/~BKoontz/ns.htm Brookville 31 North Star 30 103 - Mark Pelesky (NS) tec fall Andy Bullers, 22-7 (0-5) 112 - Sal Lascari (NS) maj dec Hunter Bullers, 15-5 (0-9) 119 - Rudy Bullers (B) inj def Chuck Wiltrout (6-9) 125 - Doug Sodano (NS) pinned Joel Kerle, 1:43 (6-15) 130 - Cole Peterson (NS) dec Josh Sammons, 7-6 (5-18) 135 - Derek Bullers (B) dec Brandon Weimer, 16-15 (9-18) 140 - Justin Steiner (B) dec Clint Gontis, 7-3 (12-18) 145 - Clint Stout (B) dec Ronnie Druist, 6-2 (15-18) 152 - Jim Carpino (B) pinned Gary Gisbrecht, 5:29 (21-18) 160 - Matt Gilbert (B) pinned Bill Lepley, 1:42 (27-18) 171 - Mark Himes (B) maj dec Randy Rubisch, 16-5 (31-18) 189 - Mike Heidorn (NS) pinned Adam Knapp, 2:20 (31-24) 275 - Chris Garboski (NS) pinned Travis Lewis, 4:52 (31-30).

On The Short End! (from North Star's point of view...)

North Star Falls To Brookville In PIAA Team Duals

BOSWELL, PA - Maybe the outcome would have been different. If... If Chuck Wiltrout hadn't suffered a decisive injury at 119 pounds. If Brandon Weimer hadn't gotten caught on his back late in his 135 pound bout. If 152 pounder Gary Gisbrecht was able to stay off the mat for just a minute and a half longer. If defending District 5 champion Randy Rubisch hadn't run into a buzz-saw in the form of Mark Himes at 171 pounds.

You can continue to count the 'ifs', but the plain fact of the matter is that North Star just came up a little bit short in a 31-30 PIAA Dual Meet loss to District 9 Champion Brookville.

The Raiders, who mounted a charge that featured six consecutive victories from 135-171 pounds, erased a 12 point team deficit, and instead transformed the score into an insurmountable 31-18. With two bouts remaining on tap, Mark Himes' major decision victory at 171 pounds clinched the victory for Brookville.

Despite the fact that the match was already won by Brookville, Mike Heidorn (189) and Chris Graboski (275) informed those in attendance that the Cougars still had plenty of fire left in them, as each secured falls to set the final score at 31-30.

In the early stages of the match, it appeared as though North Star was well on their way to doing what they have done the entire season - win.

A technical fall by Mark Pelesky at 103 got the Cougars rolling. Sal Lascari followed with a decision at 112 for a 9-0 lead. After Chuck Wiltrout suffered a match ending injury at 119, Doug Sodano picked up a fall for six more team points. An inspiring win at 130 pounds by Cole Peterson increased the Cougar lead to 12 points.

Peterson, the top ranked 125 pounder in District 5, moved up a weight to go head to head with Josh Sammons, District 9's top 130 pounder. Peterson won a gritty 7-5 decision, and North Star had what seemed to be a very favorable lead. Instead, Brookville stole the show, and the match, with six consecutive victories.

The Cougars, who had wrested their way to a 13-0 dual meet record entering the match, suffered their first loss at the most inopportune of times. For the second straight year, the Cougars were denied a trip to Hershey, PA, for the PIAA team semi-finals.

Despite the loss, North Star head coach Erick Fish remained upbeat, and had nothing but praise for his squad.

"You know, if you're going to lose, this is the place to do it - in the state tournament," said Fish. "We lost in the pig-tail, and we go home now, and they go on to Hershey... I wish them luck."

AAA Final, Sat Feb 3 @ Brookville HS St. Mary's St, Mary's 40 Dubois 22
Notes: Smethport draws rematch with Johnsonburg in D-9 match tourney By Tom Roof. The Olean Times Herald Seven teams, including Smethport High School, have entered the third-annual District 9 Class AA team wrestling dual-meet championship tournament. Wrestling will begin tonight with three first-round matches at the site of the higher-seeded team. The semifinals and finals will be held Thursday at DuBois High, starting at 6 p.m. Smethport (6-3) earned the No. 4 seed and will host No. 5 Johnsonburg (7-3) tonight at 7 o'clock. The Hubbers have beaten the Rams once this season already, 31-30. Since then, however, Johnsonburg has come on strong, beating Coudersport (34-24), Clarion (34-30), and Ridgway (36-30. The Rams have also placed ahead of Smethport at the District 9 Mid-Season Classic at Clarion - won by the Bobcats. "It's not going to be easy beating them a second time," said Smethport coach Terry Schwab, whose team has lost to Brockway (34-31), Ridgway (36-28) and Class AAA St. Marys (37-19). "They're very strong and since the last time we wrestled them, they've come up with a pretty-good 103-pounder (Kevin Costanzo) ... that could be a big difference." Smethport is led by 171-pounder Jason Radtke (19-2), but the Hubbers have strength throughout the lineup in Mark Fotlz (15-4), at 112 or 119, Greg Leet (14-6) at 130, Dave Thomas (13-7) at 135, Matt Roth (16-6) at 140, Jim O'Connell (12-12) at 160, Matt Leet (17-6) at 189, and Charlie Hendrickson (10-8) at heavyweight. Johnsonburg had been led by Steve Iorfido (19-1) at 145, Francis Iorfido (19-1) at 160, Francis Jovenitti (16-3) at 140 and Keith Miller (17-2) at 112. Cost for tickets for tonight's Smethport match will be $5 for adults and $2 for students, and the only passes that will be honored at District 9 passes. Also tonight, No. 7 Redbank Valley (4-4) will be at No. 2 Brockway (9-2), and No. 6 and defending team champion Ridgway (5-4) will be at No. 3 Brookville (9-4). Clarion earned the tournament's No. 1 seed with an 8-1 record and will be waiting for the winner of the Johnsonburg-Smethport match. The Brockway-Redbank winner will meet the Brookville-Ridgway winner on Thursday. The District 9 champion will advance to the PIAA Team Tournament and will meet the District 5 representative in a pigtail match on Tuesday, Feb. 6. That winner will then advance to the Elite Eight tournament in Hershey on Feb. 9-10 at the Hersheypark Arena. The quarterfinals will be held that Friday at 5 p.m., with semifinals and finals on Saturday at 9 a.m. and noon. Just three schools have entered the District 9 Class AAA team tournament, which will be held on Saturday at Brookville High School. DuBois High (3-6) will meet Clearfield (3-7) to start the day with the winner facing top-seeded St. Marys Public (10-1) in the championship finals.
