COUSAR HOLDS ON TO WIN, 8-7, THRILLER AT 191

Three Raiders Remain, One Devil in Region Mat Tourney

By DAVID B. CORBIN

Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times

The opening round of the Region 3 Wrestling tournament in Union on March 3 took its toll on the Westfield High School and the Scotch PlainsFanwood wrestlers. Two Blue Devils and five Raiders were eliminated. Raider Gary Cousar did manage to advance with a thrilling 8-7 victory

at 191. Raider 105-lb. freshman Lucas Francavilla was decisioned by John Cholish of Delbarton, 4-1, in the opening round. Cholish scored on a double-leg takedown in the first period and a walk-around takedown in the second while Francavilla was awarded a penalty point in the third.

Pete Paradise of New Providence at 127 won his first round bout by fall over Bill Cardinale of Colonia in 2:31 with a double-grapevine maneuver. Highlander Kris Lecomte of Governor Livingston was all over Al Tareek Frazier of Rahway at 142. Lecomte scored a series of takedowns and nearfalls before recording a 172, technical fall in 3:00.

Raider Mike Grabel at 147 was edged by Attila Vigilante of Brearley, 7-6, in the opening round. Vigilante scored two head-and-ankle takedowns in the first period while Grabel scored an escape. In the second period, Grabel was awarded an unnecessary roughness penalty point. Vigilante scored a double-leg takedown, then Grabel performed a switch reversal. Vigilante received a penalty point in the third while Grabel also received a penalty point

and an escape. Raider Marc Ricca, wrestling at 154, lost by an 18-3, technical fall to very talented Todd DeWitt of Johnson in 4:13. DeWitt scored four takedowns, a reversal and three nearfalls to advance to the quarterfinals.

Blue Devil Matt Castaldo, although placing fourth in the District 11 tournament at 162, got a chance to compete when Gary Ronkiewicz of Rahway had to withdraw due to a shoulder injury. The road was rough when his opponent Joe Keane of North

Plainfield won by fall in 4:45. Blue Devil Mike Kivetz at 173, was handled by Barry Stein of Union, 18-7. Stein scored four takedowns, a reversal and three nearfalls while Kivetz scored two takedowns and three escapes.

Raider Josh Ricca at 173 fell 11-5 to Mike Attonito of Madison. Attonito scored four takedowns and a nearfall

while Ricca scored three escapes and a reversal.

Cousar held on to win his 8-7 thriller over Marco Alvarado of Morristown at 191. Alvarado drew first blood with a takedown, but Cousar quickly escaped. In the second period, Alvarado escaped but Cousar’s tenacity earned him a singleleg takedown. Alvarado hit a reversal, then Cousar escaped. Cousar added another escape early in the third to tie the score, 5-5, then took the lead with a single-leg takedown. Alvarado tied the score 7-7 with a reversal but Cousar escaped to pull out the victory.

Highlander Fred Williams of Governor Livingston had a blazer with Mike Wallis of Boonton and toppled him 6:35 into overtime with a doubleleg takedown to a fall.

Raider Scott Paterson at 217 showed marked improvement in his rematch with tough Dannie Garay of Rahway. Paterson, who began wrestling just this season, lost big to Garay one month ago, but showed much improved mat sense this time, losing only 8-4.

After a scoreless first period, Garay escaped, then added an ankle-pick

takedown, Paterson escaped. In the third period, Paterson escaped, Garay got a spin-behind takedown, Paterson escaped again, then Garay added a penalty point and another spinbehind takedown. Paterson escaped to finalized the scoring.

“Coach told me that he really did not want me to shoot too much because that is how I got in trouble last time against him,” said Paterson. “I went in there hoping that he would shoot and make a mistake, then I would try to counter.”

One Blue Devil, three Raiders and four Governor Livingston Highlanders remained to compete in the quarterfinals on March 5.
