After seeing their 25-straight win-streak come to a close against Class 6A No. 1 Broken Arrow Tuesday night, the defending State Champions from No. 5 Sand Springs (6-1) bounced back with a dominant 55-18 win over No. 15 Enid (4-5) in the first round of the District Duals Quad. 

Brendon Wiseley received a forfeit at 106 pounds and the Sandites never trailed. Defending State Champion Riley Weir handily scored a 19-2 technical fall in 3:36 against Dae Stuber and Seth Jones pinned Austin Hisey in 53 seconds for a 17-0 lead.

Colten Roberts took an 11-1 lead into the second period against Jenbwij Nathan, quickly escaped, and took down his foe for a 17-1 tech fall in 2:45.

Irwin Portillo took on a tough competitor in Logan Herrell and the two traded points for a 6-5 first period shootout with the Plainsman on top. Portillo jumped out front in the second period, however, and scored a trio of nearfall points for the definitive lead. By the end of the third he had surged ahead for a 19-10 major decision. 26-0.

Scott Patton battled Hunter McGee at 138 pounds and the Sandite struck first with a takedown near the end of the first period. The second period went heavily in Patton’s favor and he started the final stretch with a quick reversal for nearfall points and ultimately won a 19-3 technical fall in 5:58 for the 31-0 lead.

Chris Kirby took on CJ Franks and gave up an early takedown before pinning Franks in 53 seconds. Kaleb Tabor followed Kirby’s lead and stuck Logan Griffin in 1:00 to make it 43-0.

Chase Masterson managed to avert the shutout by topping Jasanee Harjo 9-3 at 160 pounds to make it 43-3. Dayvon Taylor wasted no time in taking down Tyler Holland and pinned his foe at 1:04.

Noah Almy gave up a takedown and nearfall points to Lincoln Sefcik, who led 5-0 after a second period escape. Almy scored his first points midway through the period, but Sefcik quickly escaped and started the third period neutral with a 6-2 lead. Ultimately the Plainsman prevailed 8-3.

Josh Fincannon scored a pair of first period takedowns against Augie Pritchett and added another early in the second before pinning his opponent in 2:37. Brock Anderson received a forfeit at 220 to make it 55-12, then Robbie Parrish fell in 2:38 to Colten Dodd. 

Sand Springs will take on No. 13 Muskogee (5-2) and unranked Bartlesville (3-5) next. Bartlesville upset the Roughers 39-36 in the first dual of the evening. The four teams will wrestle a round-robin and the best record will advance to the Dual State Tournament at Shawnee's Firelake Arena this February.
