ANDERSON — The Neosho Wildcats remained unbeaten in dual competition after cleaning up with their rivals McDonald County and Webb City on Thursday night to the tune of a combined 129-12.
In the nightcap, Neosho was an Oscar Ortiz tech fall removed from a perfect dual.
Gabriel Selby (120 pounds) won a 22-7 tech fall against Jacob Owens to start the dual and Hayden Crane (113) won a 9-0 major decision against Eh Doh Say in the evening's final match, but in between that it was all pinfalls and McDonald County forfeits to accumulate 66 points.
Here's the wins by pin: Cayden Auch (132) in 1:51 against Justin Smith, Bret Camerer (138) in 40 seconds against Jordan Meador, Alec Rothman (160) in 2:43 against Jack Teague, Keaton Sanders (170) in 1:31 against Alberto Valdez, Jeremiah Larson (182) in 1:50 against Jesus Ocampo, Caleb Elliot (220) in 3:16 against Jarred Maggard, Zane Persinger (285) in 1:22 against McCoy Ikoia, and Landon Kivett (106) in 1:06 against Ryan Donica.
Noah Reiboldt (145), Braxton Barnes (152), and Drayke Perry (195) each went unopposed and the Wildcats collected 18 more points to contribute to the rout.
In the second match of the dual, Ortiz earned a 5-all score by winning a 21-6 tech fall against Cade Daniel, but Neosho erased that early tie in style with the last 70 points.
Neosho opened up Thursday's triangular by defeating Webb City 54-7, as the Wildcats continued to especially finish strong on the back side, just a week after their come-from-behind victory at home over Oklahoma Class 5 powerhouse Collinsville.
