Assumption again

DES MOINES – There wasn’t one smile for the post-match photo.

West Delaware was less than thrilled with the fact it was toting another runner-up trophy back to Manchester. Plus, the way it happened added a dash of salt in the wound.

Second-ranked Davenport Assumption won seven straight matches, eclipsing a 23-point deficit, to beat the top-ranked Hawks, 30-29, in the finals of the Iowa High School Athletic Association Class 2A State Duals Wednesday night at Wells Fargo Arena. It was the second straight year Assumption recorded a come-from-behind victory over West Delaware in the championship.

The Hawks (27-1) were top contenders to win both state titles this year.

“The goal was to win a state title,” West Delaware coach Jeff Voss said. “It didn’t happen, so it’s on to the next one.”

The Hawks were stunned and disappointed after Assumption’s Joe Riley avoided a major decision and tiebreaker criteria for team score with an 8-1 loss to Brent Lammers in the final match.

“It’s hard to explain,” West Delaware’s top-ranked 106-pounder Pat Woods said. “I just didn’t think lightning could strike twice.”

It did, and Brendan Gould provided the big bolt that ignited a seven-match win streak. The run mirrored the five straight they closed the 2012 championship against the Hawks with for a 32-30 win.

Fifth-ranked Gould scored a three-point nearfall in the second period for a 5-2 win over No. 2 Zach Less at 113. It was Gould’s first win over Less this season.

“It was huge,” Assumption coach Pete Bush said. “Brendan Gould turned the tables.”

The Knights (26-5) won close matches and tallied bonus points. Jacob Fenske followed Gould’s win with a 4-3 win at 120 over Sam Phillips and Tionte Parks’ 3-2 win over Zach Muller at 145 gave Assumption a 24-23 lead that became 30-23 after Nick Georgean’s pin at 152.

Tony Devriese (126) and Kyle Springer (132) added falls during the stretch. Gould’s win is what swung momentum in Assumption’s favor.

“It was coming into our strong lineup as well,” Bush said. “It was kind of a bonus for us.”

Assumption claimed its third straight state duals title and its seventh total. The Knights stressed basics and not allowing big moves and a lot points.

“Wrestle aggressively, but don’t wrestle stupid and get in bad positions,” Bush said. “I think we accomplished that tonight and that was the difference.”

West Delaware jumped to a big lead. Jacyn Goebel and Adam Reth had consecutive pins at 195 and 220. Heavyweight Dean Broghammer followed with a 10-0 major decision over Sean Easler and Woods posted a 9-0 major decision, giving the Hawks a 23-0 advantage.

Jake Voss (160) scored three third-period points for a 3-2 win over Danny Bush, pulling West Delaware within four before Lammers’ win at 170.

“They won some toss-up matches,” Jeff Voss said. “We won a couple. They won one or two more.”

The focus turns to the traditional tournament. West Delaware has nine qualifiers, and they will all be looking to rebound from the team loss.

“It’s something probably you aren’t going to forget about,” Woods said. “You tuck it away and use it for motivation, bounce back like we did last year and go for another state title on Saturday.”

Second-ranked Davenport Assumption won the 2A state duals title. Here are the full 2A results from Wednesday in Des Moines, courtesy of TrackWrestling.com.
