Brookville Wrestlers Finish One Win Short of Third-Place Match at Hershey

HERSHEY, Pa. – Brookville’s bid to finish in the top three in the PIAA Class 2A wrestling championships came up just a bit short.

The Raiders opened Saturday’s action with a 36-31 win over Bishop McDevitt in the third-round consolations but fell to Chesnut Ridge, 35-26 in the fourth-round consis, just one win shy of the third-place match.

Chesnut Ridge went on to beat Boiling Springs for third, 38-17.

The Raiders got off to a strong start against McDevitt, as Cole Householder earned a 3-0 decision at 126, followed by back-to-back pins from Owen Reinsel and Brecken Cieleski at 132 and 138.

McDevitt rallied to take a 19-15 lead, but Brookville got back-to-back pins once again, this time from Jackson Zimmerman (189) and Bryce Rafferty (215) to retake the lead before getting a forfeit win at 106 and a 6-3 decision from Jared Popson at 113 to secure the match.

Rensel started things off with a tech fall victory (15-0, 4:42) at 132 for the Raiders against Chesnut Ridge, but the next five bouts went the way of Ridge to take a 26-5 lead.

The Raiders then got three straight wins from Easton Belfiore via major decision at 189, a major decision from Zimmerman at 215 and a pin from Rafferty at 285.

That got them within 26-19, but Ridge won the next two bouts to secure the match. Logan Oakes closed out the match with a 5-1 decision at 120 for the Raiders.
