Wildcats Take Down Tigers


frontBRAWLEY – The Brawley High wrestling squad traveled to Imperial High Tuesday night and left Tiger-land with a 74-6 win.

The impressive Brawley team won every match but one, and looked on-point throughout the entire wrestling duel.

For the Wildcats Steven Baeza (152) , Luis Chavez (160), Tony Ramos(170), Jose Ibarra (220), Cole Deammeral (Heavyweight), Jacob Moreno (112),  and Pete Martinez (126), all were able to pick up pin falls for the Wildcat squad while Gibby Carrillo, Manuel Morales, Jacob Ordonez, and Daniel Jauregui received walkover victories.

Also Isaac Moreno picked up an exiting overtime decision victory over a tough Imperial 120 pounder, Kenny Caldera, in what was without doubt Match of the Night.

“Its been a tough season, we have a lot of injuries, trying to sort out our lineup for CIF, its still a long road for us, but the wrestling looked good tonight,” said head coach Tony Leon after the duel.

With the win, Brawley now looks to the weekend Five Counties Tournament and hopes to continue their run of success.

They will continue their tour of the Imperial Valley next Wednesday with a match against Central at Central Union High.
