TELL CITY—Tell City won five of the last six matches to beat Castle 60-42 in junior high wrestling Tuesday.

Tell City trailed 39-33 after the 135-pound match.

Spenser Beard battled for nearly the three full periods in the 145-pound match before pinning Wanhainen in 2:46 to tie the score.

Trevor Zuelly trailed 2-0 late in the 155-pound match but scored a three-point near-fall in the closing seconds to win 3-2 to put the Archers ahead for good.

C.J. Rowe followed with a quick pin, Dakota Holland won by forfeit, and Cody Osborne finished the meet with a first-period pin.

Damian Harney, Grant Bolin, Justin Alvarez and Elliot Brown earned earlier pins for the Archers.

Mason Waninger won a 6-2 decision and Aubrey Craig won by forfeit.

“We knew they had a good solid team, but head-to-head we outwrestled them,” said Tell City Coach Josh Casebolt. “And our forfeits lined up well with theirs.”

Tell City went 1-3 in a tourney at Evansville Memorial Saturday, beating Reitz 56-53 but losing to Memorial 70-42, Highland Hills 56-49, and Mount Vernon 66-43.

Tell City, 12-4, will wrestle at Jasper tonight at 6 and will compete in the PAC tourney at Gibson Southern Saturday at 9 a.m.
