Broncos pin Panthers 72-3

February 4, 2011

Rubin Pulido and Jett Bingham battle it out at Blackfoot High School on Thursday evening.

BLACKFOOT — A near capacity crowd was on hand at Blackfoot High School as a pair of storied wrestling programs collided on the mats for a non-conference duel.
When the dust had settled, the men in black stood triumphant with a convincing 72-3 victory over Snake River.
"It feels good to renew the heritage of this match," Blackfoot head coach Brian Barlow said. "Shoot, you have one of the most storied programs on one side of the river and another on the other side of the river and when you meet in the gym and feel the buzz, it's a pretty special place here at Blackfoot High School."
The evening started with a pair of second period pins by Blackfoot wrestlers as Koty Cook and Rubin Pulido staked the Broncos to a 12-0 lead.
Jesse Vogler got the Panthers on the board at 152 as he out dueled John Horak making the score 12-3.
Stetson Jorgensen got the momentum back onto the Blackfoot sideline at 160 however as he earned a 11-0 major decision over Carlos Molina. Coltin Hill followed with a second period pin at 171 bringing up two of the more highly anticipated matches at 189 and 215.
Conrad Jarmin and Jared Smith turned in a rousing effort at 189 as neither wrestler gave an inch for most of the bout. Leading 4-0 entering the third period, Jarmin was able to catch Smith, leading to a third period pin and a 28-3 Bronco lead.
"Hats off to Blackfoot, there is not a weight in which they don't have a solid kid at," Snake River head coach Jeff Gardner said. "We are tough in about four of five weights but they have especially tough kids there and three or four of those matches we've won earlier in the year but they stepped up in front of their home crowd and they won 3 of the 4 matches that we could get but we were expecting it to be tough. Hats off to them they have a tough team, so we have other things to focus on now."
In the 215 match up a pair of the finest Bingham County athletes were on display as Garret Buck and Mike Duff squared off in a good old fashioned brawl. After a scoreless first period, Buck chose the down position, earned a reversal and then was able to pin Duff in the second round.
"You could hear them hitting," coach Barlow said. "That fortifies what is so cool about it tonight. Two of the strongest kids going head to head and you could hear them fighting, you could hear everybody going oh and ah and that is one of the reasons that they invented this stuff."
Angel Dorantes turned in the quickest bout of the night at 285 with a :15 first period pin and then it was back down the ladder to the lower weights.
Chase Wasia and Kohl Bingham each earned major decisions at 103 and 112 in advance of a forfeit and three straight pins to close out the match.
"Kohl turned in a courageous match. I thought that he showed his constitution, his will power, he fought through some pretty painful holds because the Valentine kid was cranking and knew what he wanted to do," coach Barlow said. "I've never seen a kid pull out of a double arm bar for a reverse like Kohl did and that just comes from the heart, it was an incredible warrior fight right there."
Both varsity squads will be back in action next Wednesday evening with Blackfoot hosting Bonneville for senior night and Snake River traveling to Marsh Valley.
"I want to thank everyone for filling the gym out and making this what it was supposed to be, a community get together and a time to rally around our kids and show off," coach Barlow said. "It sure felt good to look up in the stands and see all the state champions, it made it such a special place to be."
