Catholic Central, WL Central advance several wrestlers to semifinals

AUBURN HILLS - Close matches and dramatic finishes were part of the experience during the quarterfinal round of the MHSAA individual state wrestling championships Friday afternoon at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Oxford's Sergio Borg rallied for a fantastic finish, coming back from a 15-11 deficit in the third period for a 17-15 victory over Rockford's Andy Hansen in overtime of their 135-pound quarterfinal match.

"It was a lot of fun, that third period was wild," said Borg, who was nearly pinned and trailed throughout the match, but kept pecking away at the lead until victory was his.

He's now in the semifinals.

Walled Lake Central's TJ Daugherty earned a 3-0 decision over Devon Johnsen of Novi Detroit Catholic Central in their 103-pound match. "It was real tough, tried to stay on my offense and get the win," said Daugherty, who joined teammates Ben Freeman, a three-time state champion, and Nick Freeman, a 4-2 winner over Bay City Western's Victor Schoenherr, in Friday's

semifinal.

Ben Freeman earned a technical fall over Waterford Kettering's Anthony Gonzalez in their 140-pound quarterfinal match.

Catholic Central's returning state champions Ty Morland (171), Nick Jenkins (285), Kevon Davenport (130) and Ben Kamali (112) also advanced to Friday's semifinals.

Southfield A&T's Max Doggett is also in after a 10-8 decision over Catholic Central's Easton Turner in the 171-pound quarterfinals. "I used my heart on that one," said Doggett, who repelled the Shamrock sophomore.

Birmingham Groves' Colin Takata sweated out a close victory in his 140-pound quarterfinal as he also advanced to the semifinals.

Clawson's Katlyn Pizzo, the only female wrestler at the tournament, lost on technical fall in the quarterfinals and dropped to the consolation rounds.

Farmington heavyweight Donovan King lost a 5-4 decision to Gaylord's Joe Markham and also fell to the consolation rounds.
