The Bearcats defeated Vestavia Hills 46-31 in their final match of the tournament. They lost two matches earlier in the day, falling to Arab 49-15 and Tuscaloosa County Blue 45-36.

Souder, who has lost only one match this season, and Allison both went 5-0 this weekend. Clapper went 4-0.

Souder had three pins Saturday; Allison had a decision and two pins; Clapper had a major decision and a pin (he didn’t wrestle against Arab).

The Bearcats are now 32-13 in dual matches.

Montgomery, Hill sharp for Ohatchee

HUNTSVILLE — Ohatchee’s Caleb Montgomery and Reed Hill both had winning records in multiple matches at the Sportsmed Duals.

Montgomery went 5-0 (3-0 with two forfeits) at 220. He won two decisions and had a pin on the mat.

Hill went 4-1 (2-1 with two forfeits) at 108. His wins on the mat came by pin and technical fall.

“Caleb has been dominant all season, as has Reed,” Ohatchee coach Casey Lipscomb said.

Austin Snelling had a pin and a decision at 182 and heavyweight Dakota Pruitt scored a pin.

The Indians had several open weights in the middle of their lineup and went 0-5 in matches against Hartselle, Fort Payne (42-36), Huntsville (66-11), host Grissom (66-12) and Piedmont (54-21). The Hartselle match was tied 36-36 and the Indians lost on the third tiebreaker.
