1: 18 at 215, quickly finding an opportunity to crunch him with a half nelson and body press.
“I was riding him. I saw the opportunity and I attacked,” said Williams. “I feel good, but I’m not up to wrestling speed yet. If it goes late into the match, I will get a little tired, but that will be gone by counties.”
“Brian is starting to get back into the groove, We had a good practice yesterday,” said Kurz. “We have a hard week ahead of us next week and Brian could really use this heading into the counties.”
Despite falling to Farmer Mike Lodato, Blue Devil heavyweight Nick Clark showed some improvement and was in a tight bout, being down just 32. But, a fatal shift in position and downward pressure cost him dearly at the 3: 22 mark.
The Blue Devils slipped to 410.

MARCANTONIO JUMPS TO 170, FULLOWAN WINS TWO
Pioneers Edge, Indians Rock G. L. Highlander Matmen By FRED LECOMTE
Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times
Scale problems in New Providence forced several Governor Livington Highlanders to wrestle up a weight and the result was a 3937 Pioneer victory on January 26. Then on January 29, the visiting Rahway Indians demonstrated their maturity and registered a 4913 victory. Senior Tim Marcantonio at 160 and Mike Fullowan at 112 were the only Highlanders to win both of their bouts.
Tim Vanderveer, Fullowan and Matt Sidie set the pace for a combined 130 Highlander lead and all three freshmen lifted their record to 117. Vanderveer at 103 pursued Nick Dowling with a vengeance, immedi ately taking him to his back for a 5
0 lead. Vanderveer’s domination continued until earning the fall at the 2: 51 mark. Fullowan at 112 worked tilts and armbars to outpoint Mike Fellinger, 52. Sidie trampled John Walker with an 112, majority decision at 119. Strength and an aggressive pursuit made the difference in this one sided affair.
Greg DeMeo, Greg Buttita, Chris Dowling and J. J. Infantini changed the course of the match with 23 consecutive team points to give the
Pioneers a 2313 lead. Then a determined 145 lb. Jon Regenye had his way with Jeff Merrill. Digging into his arsenal of moves, Regenye accumulated a 91 lead before packing Merrill in 3: 20.
Marcantonio barely broke a sweat as he annihilated Dan Dougherty in 1: 15. Then, at 215 Highlander Shawn Coughlin (97) took Elio Roman to his back for the pin at 1: 22.
Facing the newest in the Mountain Valley Conference this year, the Indians proved to be a formidable opponent. Fullowan at 112 dominated Gene Ronkiewicz as he built an 81 advantage in the first period en route to a 94 decision. Previously, at the Rahway Tournament, Ronkiewicz pinned Fullowan.
“I mainly focused on taking good shots, while avoiding making costly mistakes,” said Fullowan.
Eight matches later, Marcantonio upped his record to 170 with a 101,
majority decision over Walter Braxton. Scoreless after one period, Marcantonio built a 50 lead after two then added two nearfalls in the third.
Mike Farrell at 171 decisioned Indian Mike Rasmussen 63 in a well wrestled contest.
“I beat Rasmussen by the same score at the Rahway Tournament. I was pretty much aware of his technique as he tried to hit the roll and the Peterson, so I had to play it smart executing my game plan on him first,” said Farrell.
Heavyweight Highlander Tom Robina in what may be his best bout of the year outpointed a tough Steve Krawec, 83.

was needed on the Blue Devils’ bench. With three minutes left in the period Max Langford and captain Brandon Kape brought in a goal for the home team. Only a minute later David Strassburg, assisted by Langford, put another point on the board for the Devils. Just before the end of the period Don Bosco beat the Westfield defense and scored.
With some supportive words from the coach and a new sheet of ice, the Westfield Blue Devils came out for the third period with a new attitude. Goalie Chad Pushel held steadfast backed by the Blue Devil defense. Kape moved back for a little defensive support to play with defense man John Burnham. Together they stole the show keeping Westfield in the game.
The first goal of the period was scored by Langford and assisted by Matt O’Neil. Holding strong against the solidly executed plays from Don Bosco, it was not until the final three minutes that Kape took a dazzling shot from his defensive position at the blue line and put the puck past the Ironmen’s goalie, top left shelf. Less than a minute later a solid shot slipped in past the Westfield defense to finish the game at 125 Don Bosco.

the second quarter. Feeley, Burwell and Steve Williams each added two points early in the second quarter and the Raiders appeared to be on the right track with a 1715 lead. Blue Knight Jeff Vincent nailed a threepointer, but Jackson matched it with a threepointer of his own. However, Blue Knight Jim Smith rocked the Raiders with a threepointer but not as much as John Brown who fired in eight of his 12 points in that quarter.
The Raiders scored only 11 points in the second half as Burwell would score just four and Feeley would add only two. Jackson and Williams did not harm the net, but Raider senior Derrick Brown netted five points. Irvington improved to 48 while the Raiders fell to 38.
