Corry’s Shawn Proctor
Corry’s Shawn Proctor, shown here getting a pin, will have a key match tonight.

This is the match wrestling fans have been waiting for.

It’s undefeated Corry at Eisenhower tonight on the Knights’ mats.

“This is a big match, a battle of the 5-0 teams,” noted coach Mark Munsee. “We still have one more region match after this one and that would be against Cochranton on the road.

“I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous,” he admitted. “Coach (Kris) Black always has his kids prepared especially when it comes to wrestling us.”

Every weight class will be important.

“The key matchups would be Lucas Peterson and Easton Headman (132), Trey Proper and Ganon Jaquay (138), Nick Lapinski and Josh Bortz (145) and Shawn Proctor and Cael Black (220),” claimed Munsee, though every other bout could important with bonus points or pins.

“For the most part we are healthy with normal bumps and bruises,” Munsee said.

Have the Beavers had this region match circled since an opening-win over Saegertown?

“The only match I circle is the next one, I am not a believer in looking ahead,” admitted Munsee. “We must wrestle each opponent like it is the most important match.

“So since this is our next match it is now circled,” he stated.

“Winning this match would be a huge step towards the region title,” said Munsee. “We must never take our opponents lightly and this match is no different. Our kids have worked hard all season and are prepared for this match.

“As long as we go out and wrestle to the best of our ability and leave it all on the mat I will be satisfied win or lose,” he claimed. “This will be an exciting match and this is the type of match kids will remember for a long time. Not very many kids get to wrestle in this kind of atmosphere.

“The Ike’s gym will probably be rocking. I am excited.” Munsee admitted.
