PARK HILLS – Central senior wrestlers Aaron Dooley and Kwinton Burnett notched back-to-back victories against Sullivan after being honored at a home quad-match on Thursday evening.
Central was open in seven weight classes, which contributed heavily to losses against St. Clair (42-36), Sullivan (60-15) and Dexter (57-18).
Garrett Smith and William Mayberry each punctuated falls late in the second period, while Jacob Looney turned a strong reversal into a victory at the 1:24 mark against St. Clair.
Burnett notched his lone fall of the evening on the heels of a 4-1 decision by Dooley. Freshman Kade Willis also pinned his Sullivan opponent.
Although Dexter dominated Central in the final round of duals, Looney solidified his second fall of the action while Burnett and Mayberry each won by forfeit.
Dooley battled deep into overtime at 182 pounds before Dexter standout Jett Featherston shrugged loose for an escape and 3-2 sudden victory.
Willis also tested himself against a returning state medalist from Dexter. He earned a tying takedown in the first period, but Travis Waldner followed with two near falls to claim a 12-4 major decision.
